Ashbury International New SABER SX Short Action Receiver


Ashbury Precision Ordnance Manufacturing announced the first of a new family of Octagonal Bolt Action Receivers for Cartridges from .223 Rem to .375CT. The SX  bolt action receivers are purpose built to maximize surface contact with Ashbury’s newest interlocking SABER®-FORSST® Modular Rifle Chassis Systems (MRCS) requiring absolutely no bedding, yet can also be bedded in traditional rifle stocks.

The SABER SX receiver is manufactured with .384″ (.223Rem/.300BLK), .480″ (.308) and .540″ (WSM/SAUM) bolt faces, in both right and left hand configurations.  APO’s Custom Shop will be offering actions and other custom calibers on the SX for varmint, big game hunting, and competition shooting.

The SABER SX receivers can use single and two stage M700 style triggers pinned directly into the precision cut trigger slot.  The SX is engineered to accommodate both the double stack single feed (DSSF) and double stack double feed (DSDF) magazines, while maximizing lower receiver strength.

The SABER SX bolt action receiver weighs in at 28.8 oz. with the receiver scope rail and is finished with a black oxide coating.  The bolt is nitride to provide years of smooth operation and final finishes on APO rifles use Cerakote Micro Slick.
