    It was discontinued a couple of years ago. This one is the closest to it now:

    These are also great little compacts:

    Hey team. Got the 6.5 grendel with factory 20 inch barrel that I'm hoping to put in Wingman's Elude. How are you all finding the grendel in the shorter barrels? I'm getting shit hot accuracy but mediocre speed with the Hornady black 123 eldms. What kinda ranges are you getting good terminal performance with the shorter barrels? I hand load generally but haven't managed to get it any better than the box shit so far. It's three in a hole shooter with the factory eldm

    Loving this little build.. 6.5 Grendel, 11" carbon barrel, DPT suppressor, Backlanz super light carbon and titanium bipod and Vortex pro rings. The customer is fitting his 1-6 Vortex LPVO scope.
    Light and compact, just how I intended this little chassis to be used.
