Texas Sniper Criterion Rem/Age Review


Dylan O. of Texas sent us these pictures of his recent Rem/Age build.  Dylan used a Northland Trued Remington 700 Action, 24″ Criterion Rem/Age 6.5 Creedmoor bull barrel, APA Little Bastard muzzle brake, and a Rifle Basix L-1K trigger. Here is what Dylan had to say:

“I put together a Remington 700 last year with all NSS sourced parts and wanted to give a review of the rifle:

Trued Remington 700 Short Action
24″ 1:8 Criterion RemAge 6.5mm Creedmoor
NSS Recoil Lug
NSS Barrel Nut
APA Little Bastard Brake
Rifle Basix L1 Trigger

I’m a Sniper Team Leader with a law enforcement agency in the Austin, Texas area. This rifle was built to replace the factory .308 Win I was using at the time and this rifle has blown me away. The entire system, optic included, totaled $3,100 and it shoots like it’s worth $12,000

Half MOA or better, shooting touching groups at 100 yards without fail and ringing steel at 1,100 yards without issue. Highly pleased with the rifle and the personal service received from NSS. Not one hiccup in the purchasing, shipping, receiving, or building process. Great rifle.

The stock is a Bell & Carlson Target/Competition model. It has only been out for a year or two, it appears to be a Manners / McMillan A4-A5 clone…functions great.  It has a full-length aluminum bedding block.

This steel target photo is a 550-yard group on a 6″x6″ head.

Thanks for an awesome rifle and you have a barrel customer for life.”

Thanks for the message Dylan and great shooting!
