Accurate shooter has on their Daily Bulletin The new BAT Neuvo Action. Very Interesting I think. I am an action Junky, so I cant help but wonder about this thing. Im sure it wont be cheap, and probably hard as heck to get ahold of, but I want one!!! LOL!! I guess Dwight Scott had a lot of input on this action, and as I understand it, Bat has completely redesigned the fire control? Anyone else know anything? Lee

Accurate shooter has on their Daily Bulletin The new BAT Neuvo Action. Very Interesting I think. I am an action Junky, so I cant help but wonder about this thing. Im sure it wont be cheap, and probably hard as heck to get ahold of, but I want one!!! LOL!! I guess Dwight Scott had a lot of input on this action, and as I understand it, Bat has completely redesigned the fire control? Anyone else know anything? Lee Lee. I called Dwight this afternoon because he has one of my dies and I needed to know if he shipped it. I asked him about the action. He told me that he has 5 prototypes at his place. He said it is nothing revolutionary, just a lot of little improvements over what is offered now. He said it would take too long to talk about everything that was done. Here are a few things that he told me that I remember. It has a horizontal 2 lug, large diameter bolt like a Hall. There is a lube port on the top of the shroud so u can put a drop of oil in it. He said it has a very tight shroud to bolt fit and no weight on the cocking piece. There is a relief on the bolt face. A few new safety features. If a case ruptures, it seals off the loading ports and contains it. There are 2 grooves on the bottom of the action to help bedding. that's all I remember because I had to get going. He said the Prototypes that Chris at Bullet Central had got sold. I think he told me around $1550.00. I think he said that the actions once they get running are $1850.00 I was just told. Wish I could tell you more. Something else Lee that I just remembered, Dwight mentioned something about the bolt handle being a 3/4" stub. He might of said that it was machined right in with the bolt and that u screw a lengthened handle on it so it's not like my early Black Widow that was braised on and the newer ones are screwed on. Again I'm pretty sure that's he way I understood it.

He said the Prototypes that Chris at Bullet Central had got sold. I think he told me around $1550.00. I think he said that the actions once they get running might be around $1700.00 but don't hold me to that. Wish I could tell you more. Something else Lee that I just remembered, Dwight mentioned something about the bolt handle being a 3/4" stub. He might of said that it was machined right in with the bolt and that u screw a lengthened handle on it so it's not like my early Black Widow that was braised on and the newer ones are screwed on.

My attention was directed to this post.

The price is not $1,550 or $1,700. To clear any confusion, we will have introductory pricing of $1,850 which includes SS action body and Melonite finish. For a premium action we are not making any without the Melonite/nitride finish. I am not going to comment on the features mentioned above - we will publish them in due course and provide a link on this forum.

Thanks

Thanks Chris. I never said they were going to be 1550 or 1700. I'm pretty sure that Dwight told me that the prototypes that you had sold for 1550 and I asked him what the production models would go for and he said that he didn't know for sure but said maybe 1700 or a little higher but I wrote down don't hold me to that. I don't get what is so hush hush about some of the features?

Okay, I can see you edited your first post (changed the $1700 to $1850).

For the record. No actions have been sold for $1,550 or close to that. Not sure how that got mixed up with Dwight. He knows that as well as I do. I just don't need people misunderstanding anything at this point so all I want to do is clear any confusion.

When we are ready we will reveal a lot more of the features. All we are doing right now is announcing the action, letting the market know what is ahead. Hope that helps.
