Ashbury Precision Ordnance Mfg recently announced a new rifle called the Saber M700. As the name suggests, the gun is built on the company’s Saber modular rifle chassis and uses a Remington M700 barreled action. These specific guns are built on the company’s Saber MRCS-AR chassis. According to Ashbury Precision Ordnance, the guns are designed to blend the best features of a bolt action rifle with those of the AR platform.
These rifles use a Remington Model 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD barreled action that is chambered for the .308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor cartridges. The hammer forged barrel is 20″ long with a 1:10″ twist for the .308 and 22″ long with a 1:8″ twist for the 6.5 Creedmoor. Both versions have threaded ends for a muzzle device. Ashbury Precision Ordnance uses a X-Mark Pro trigger that is set at 3.5 pounds. The gun feeds from a Magpul PMAG 5 7.62 AC magazine.
Although the gun is clearly a bolt action system, the chassis has a buffer tube to allow for the attachment of an AR-style stock. The tube is mounted on a double locking hinge. This allows it to fold while also retaining the ability to use a wide range of adjustable length stocks. A Magpul CTR is standard on the gun.
The guns are all made in the United States, and they will be sold through Cabela’s stores only. The suggested retail price is $1,799.
