    Here is my info in case it helps anyone. Bronco sports said that they are still waiting for the Excl. They don't really know but it's unlikely to be before March.

    I swapped a few brief emails with Ken and he said he will be getting them in stock when they are available.

    Ken's a good guy. He helped above and beyond the call of duty when bought an NEA15 (sob) from him.

    Broncos told me: October, early November, late November, early December (insisting it would be avail in early December while I was standing in front of the dickhead on the 9th of December, with nothing in country). Save yourself the hassle and deal with someone else. Ken's pretty spot on, but anyone but Broncos

    We hope to start pushing them out the door today. We also have a NZ built chassis for the howa mini action coming to the market end of year, early next year too. Howa mini actions are the future for lightweight custom builds.

    So who got one of the Excl chassis from Ken? I went to get one today and they are all sold out already!
    I would rather be shot out of a cannon, than squeezed out of a tube.

    COLFO / SSANZ / WPC / NZCCC

    @Jewcati

    Yeah I grabbed one, I have Howa 300blk Mini action with an Oceania Defence can and brake and a Swaro z6i 1-6 on it.

    I'm going to throw it in the chassis and chop it to just after where the chassis ends (chassis itself is just over 762mm closed stock) so just the muzzle brake sticks out for the suppressor to lock onto. Barrel will still be 12-13" so that's fine for 300blk.

    Should be a nice lightweight little subsonic rifle.
    berg243 and Jewcati like this.
