BAT Actions


Manufacturing out of Rathdrum, Idaho, BAT Machine produces one of the finest actions in the world.  The action recievers begin as either 17-4 stainless or 4140 Chrome Moly.  Stainless actions are pre-hardened to 36-38 Rockwell before initial action manufacturing begins. BAT bolt bodies are hardened to 40-44 Rockwell providing a nice hard surface on which to support the firing of a loaded round.

While BAT Machine primarily makes single shot actions, they do offer two models for the hunting crowd:  VR and HR.  Both of these actions are highly regarded throughout the industry and we here at Shurley Brothers highly recommend them.

Action scope mount holes are 8-40 thread while the action tenon measure 1-1/16″ x 18 TPI.

Actions in the same family have interchangeable bolts.  If you own a BAT B and want both a .223 and .308 bolt face…just order 2 bolts.  They will be concentric and can be used in a switch barrel setup easily.
