Modular Sporter Chassis with Carbon Fore-End from APO

At the NRA Show in Houston, Ashbury Precision Ordnance (“APO”) will spotlight the new long-action SABER-FORSST Sporter Chassis. For hunters and recreational shooters, the SABER Composite Series Sporter is a “drop in, torque down and shoot upgrade” for long-action rifles with 1.200″ to 1.300″ barrel shank diameters. The SABER Sporter chassis features adjustable shoulder stock and carbon-reinforced fore-end (with traditional sporter shaping and twin swivel studs). You can install your barreled action in the SABER Sporter chassis in minutes using simple tools. No gunsmithing or bedding is required. All metal surfaces are coated for durability.

The SABER Sporter long-action chassis weighs just 5.25 lbs including the box mag, adjustable buttstock, Limbsaver® recoil pad, and ERGO® Sure Grip. This chassis offers full adjustability — length of pull (LOP), cheek-rest height, buttpad position, and even grip-to-trigger distance. APO says this is a very versatile stock, suitable for both hunting and field applications: “The Sporter is a comfortable, low-recoil rifle chassis impervious to all weather conditions and shoots comfortably off-hand, supported, or from a bipod”. APO’s SABER Sporter is offered in four colors for these action types: Rem700 SA and LA; McMillan G30 SA and LA; Surgeon RSR, 591, 1086, 1581.

Curtain Rises at NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston

Story based on report by Kyle Jillson for NRABlog
Before 70,000+ NRA members arrived at Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center today for the 2013 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, so much had to be done. More than 550 exhibitors spent the entire day assembling their booths and tidying everything up to show off their latest wares. This slide show captures the process of setting up all the exhibits in the main hall.

Houston NRA Show Highlights
If you’re lucky enough to be in Houston today, here are some recommended things to do at the Annual Meetings & Exhibits:

Air Gun Shooting (FREE): Try out the latest air rifle and air pistols on the convention center’s third floor with the folks at Pyramyd Air. Air rifle shooting is fun, and seating is provided if you need to rest your legs.

Concealed Carry Seminar: This seminar is always one of the most popular events at the Annual Meetings & Exhibits. Learn about holster selection, CCW clothing and get training tips. Friday’s class starts at 2 p.m. in room 360.

Book Signings: Head to the 2nd floor for book signings. This year’s list of authors on Friday are: Ambassador John Bolton, Col. Oliver North, Rick Santorum and Judge Jeanine Pirro.

Cruise the Exhibit Hall: There’s plenty to see and do in the 440,000 square-foot Convention Hall. Over 550 exhibitors have set up their booths and displays. You could probably spend the entire weekend in the Exhibit Hall and not see everything that’s on display.
