Make: Badger Ordnance

Model: M2008

Caliber: .260 Remington

Location (city or county): Sacramento, California

Price: $3200

Will ship (Y/N): No

Other info: Full custom rifle, built on a Gen 2 Badger M2008 action. The gun was built by Spartan Precision Rifles and Cerakoted by Phantom Finishing. The M2008 is Badger's interpretation of an "improved" AI action. It features AI's 60 degree bolt lift and a six lug bolt. The barrel is a Bartlein Medium Palma, chambered in .260 Remington by Spartan Precision Rifles. The round count is around 900. I say around because I went through 800 139 Scenar's and did load development with 140 AMAX's and 140 Berger's. The stock is an Accuracy International AICS 2.0 (folding) with Multi-Cam hydro-dipped Viper Skins. The stock inletting was done by Marty at Badger Ordnance. The trigger is a Timney, set a 2.0 lbs. The Badger 20 MOA rail is integrated into the action. I am selling this rifle because I am trying to keep all of my competition guns the same across the board. The over-all condition of the rifle is excellent, there are some marks in the Viper Skins from the use of a sling. I will include the upgraded Sako style extractor from Badger. The Atlas is not included.

Update 03/05/2013: Lowered price. Also, just to reiterate. Spartan Precision Rifles currently has a 10 to 12 month wait time. They are doing the 2012 Sniper's Hide limited edition rifles, which should speak volumes for their workmanship. Badger Ordnance is out of M2008 actions. They do have a M2013 action being released this year but the only difference is weight and all of the updates this action has. Food for thought, the M2008 has two generations and other various upgrades. It took Badger several years to work everything out. Why be the guinea pig for a new action when this action has all the updates available to make it reliable. Bartlein barrels currently has a 8 to 10 month lead time on barrels. They can be obtained from vendors like Grizzly Machine and Southern Precision Rifles but you are usually limited to a 1.25" straight taper, an MTU, or a light varmint contour.

I took the rifle out today, shot 11 shots total. Cold bore was upper right of head, performed dot drill at 100 yards, prone, off bipod with rear bag. Performed all 11 shots in 45 seconds. Used a Premier Heritage 5X25 scope. Each one of those dots is smaller than a dime, the taret is a 8.5X11 paper. Used 139 Scenar pushed by H4350 in a Remington case.

Saw this one in person on Friday, it's sweet. If I didn't already have a Spartan I'd be all over it.

Bump. Spartan just posted on their FB, they are only doing complete in house builds. You cannot bring them parts to chamber and assemble. 12 month minimum wait time for a rifle.

Me neither. If this was an LMT MWS .308 it would have sold already. I encourage anyone who is interested in this rifle to call around. Call Spartan, GAP, Short Action Customs, Score Hi Gunsmithing to compare the price and lead time to build this exact rifle.

Bump. FYI, if .260 Remington is not your thing this action is a short action/standard bolt face. A simple re-barrel ($250 to $340 for a barrel blank and $150 to $200 to chamber) can turn this into any short action caliber (.243, 6mm Creedmoor, .308, 6.5 Creedmoor, 7 Shehane, ect). This barrel still has plenty of life, any competent gunsmith can set the existing barrel back and chamber for any 6.5MM caliber.

I can do that with my TC 223 Contender with 14" bull barell

Not sure if serious. Well good for you. You might want to register for the F-Class World Championships in Ranton, New Mexico. You sound like a real contender with your TC.
