Zermatt Origin Action Build Success!
Ryan B. of Colorado sent us some info on his 6.5 Creedmoor build using a Zermatt Arms Origin action purchased from Northland Shooters Supply (NSS).
Here are a few of the components Ryan used on his build:
- Zermatt Arms / Bighorn Arms Origin action
- 26” Criterion- MTU contour- 6.5 Creedmoor- 8 twist- with muzzle thread
- NSS squared and trued barrel nut
- NSS action wrench
- NSS 4” barrel nut wrench
- Forster headspace gauges
- KRG Bravo chassis with enclosed for-end
- TriggerTech Primary trigger
- Leupold MK5 5-25 Scope
Here is what Ryan had to say about his build:
“I wanted to send you a note about a build you helped me with along with a few photos, as a thank you. I purchased a 26” Criterion MTU in 6.5 Creedmoor, an NSS Barrel nut, and a Bighorn Origin short a few months back.
I put everything together, and the rifle flat-out shoots. I’ve taken it to an ELR match and did better than I expected and have shot some amazing groups so far.
Attached is a photo of the build and a 5-shot group at 100 yards with factory 140 eld ammo well under 1/2 MOA.
I’m hoping the 6.5 PRC Shilen I have on order with you does as well. I’ll be coming to you for a long-action origin sooner than later. Cheers.”
