The Accu-strut will definitely fit the new larger barrel. You merely have to shift the rear clamp forward towards the muzzle a bit to clear the conical portion. We have not tested yet whether the strut will increase performance yet. The strut was originally designed to help the pencil-thin original barrel. However, a 5/8th's bbl is still not a bull barrel exactly, so strut technology may very well help.

We do not yet have a foreign export license, hopefully this year, or if we begin to sell through retailers who already possess the license.

Thank you for your interest!

-Kevin

I've looked into this. It has become unbelievably difficult and expensive to export firearm parts, so am putting the project on indefinite hold. So sorry, if the situation changes I'll let you know.

Hello kkina, I was just wanting to know on your red laminate stock- when you added the sling stud for the bipod- what did you use? Many thanks, Mike

I used a swivel stud, threaded and epoxied right into the wood stock.

Hello again Kevin, The swivel stud you used-I assume it was threaded like a wood screw. you know what they say when you assume. Does it seem strong enough. I know the wood is not real thick in this area. Thanks again.

Actually it is a machine thread...that's why I used epoxy, and also the swivel base is epoxied. So far, it has held. If it works it's way loose, I'll try something else!
