Seekins Precision 6.5CM

    When it rains it pours. I’ve not previously been interested in the 6.5 Creedmoor round (not because of any dislike; I just haven’t had the bandwidth to engage it) and I recently found out I am getting the chance to review a rifle chambered in it. Queue stumbling upon a new press release from Seekins Precision announcing their official release of a new SP10 Rifle chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor.

    We have worked tirelessly over the past year to fine tune and craft this rifle to meet the stringent demands for quality and accuracy that the Seekins Precision name is known for.

    They based the new SP10 on their iRMT Upper Receiver (CNC machined from 7075-T6 billet aluminum) which incorporates a top Picatinny rail (it extends over the barrel mount to provide more strength to the receiver; and obvious more space to mount things). They are also coupling it with their SP3r Free Float Handguard (which is flat on the bottom to aid stability when shooting precision). It also comes with a stainless steel match-grade barrel is specifically contoured to balance the rifle (and provide some weight reduction).

    The SP10 6.5 Creedmoor lower is also machined from 7075-T6 billet aluminum and is fully ambidextrous (including the magazine release, selector switch and an ambidexeterous bolt switch that “allows the shooter to lock back or release the bolt with a single finger”. It has a tuned 3.5 pound trigger that “guarantees out of the box performance” (it looks to be a CMC Trigger). Finally, the stock is the Magpul PRS stock. MSRP looks to be $2650.
