    The Fix by Q

    Happy that i stopped by FOC a few days ago to check out The Fix by Q (the same guy who makes the Honey Badger) as it appears to have already been sold

    This is by far the lightest precision rifle that i have ever handled..at just over 6 pounds, it is TWO POUNDS lighter than a Desert Tach Covert and FOUR POUNDS less than a Cadex CPS!

    As you can expect from something of this price, quality of fit and finish was super high and super smooth.



    happy to see something so rare...whoever got it is pretty lucky!

    i posted specs above...in addition, consider the Christensen MPR with a 16" carbon fiber barrel (I saw this at SHOT Show 2018), it weighs 6.9 lbs vs. 6.3 for the Q! It is cheaper though at around $3400

    On a serious note, it seems odd to focus on lightweight for a precision target rifle?

    If you're bench shooting, wouldn't you want heavy everything?

    Light to me = hunting, and specifically bush-bashing types of hunting where you're carrying it at the ready for hours (as opposed to treestand hunting).

    I'm not criticizing anything, people can spend their own money on whatever they want.

    But it seems like putting offroad tires on a car, or putting car tires on a Jeep.

    If precision is the aim, I'm think someone would want a 10-12+ pound rifle that's going to stay nice and stable.

    yes you are right for bench shooting

    but i think the intended purpose of the Fix is more like the Nemesis Vanquish..e.g. easy in and out of a "tactical" situation, which typically arent at extreme ranges.

    obviously as civilians we would not be buying it for that purpose

    What about an SKS would you describe as "quality?"
