GA Precision to Build Tactical Rifle with Phoenix Actions

Glen Harrison, creator of the original Nesika actions, has been designing and building precision bolt actions for over 15 years. Glen’s products are known for high-quality machining, precision tolerances, and superior accuracy. Glen’s Nesika Bay operation was sold to Dakota Arms, but Dakota tried to grow too big, too fast, and has experienced some difficulties.

Glen has started a new company, appropriately called Phoenix Machine Technologies. Phoenix is currently up and running, building a variety of actions. Some of the first Phoenix actions will be the new Templar design. The Templar features a Rem 700 footprint, Picatinny rail, precision-ground recoil lug, and oversize bolt knob. The Phoenix Templars will be used in the new Crusader Tactical Rifle built by G.A. Precision, of Kansas City, MO.

George Gardner, owner of G.A. Precision, is pleased that Glen is back in the action-building business. He reports the new Phoenix actions are top-quality: “At G.A. Precision, we use only top notch, field-tested, durable parts and accessories. We are proud to be offering the Templar Action, built by Glen Harrison at Phoenix Machine Technologies.”
