Barnard Model P-Chey Action

A development of the Model P action, The Model P-Chey is a conventional single shot, cylindrical forward-locking turn bolt design, available in either left or right handed configuration. Designed to handle the .408 Chey-Tac or the .505 Gibbs cartridges. Click here for Technical drawing.

Available in our complete rifle build, The Barnard Model 10SS.

The bolt carries three forward locking lugs, is equipped with a Sako style extractor, the bolt face can accept any case rim up to 0.635".  It undergoes finish machining after hardening, and is hand lapped to suit its mating receiver.

The receiver is a 4340 chrome/moly/nickel steel solid bottom cylinder, which is through hardened to 38Rc and finish machined after surface hardening to ensure concentricity.

Supplied as standard with the Barnard Target trigger.
