Lightweight Rear Bag Riders

Despite my bitter dislike of anything carbon fibre related due to the fibres that seem to get everywhere I actually enjoyed making this, a rear bag rider for an Accuracy International that had to be light. This is a mix of carbon fibre and 6082T6 and rolled in at 95 grams so it ticks the box and I think it looks rather smart as well, or will do when I have wiped my grubby prints off it. Something to remember with our light weight rear bag riders is by nature they are not as robust as the normal 150 gram versions as a third of the weight has been shed however as long as they are not seriously abused they seem to go on for ever and I know for a fact that all of the ones I have built to date are still out there on rifles and in constant use.

There is a 75 gram version however I only do these to special order and they are not as pretty

I guess I had better get back to work as it feels like we are knee deep in rifle and shotgun work right now. Roll on getting the dogs out time when it is a bit cooler. I will make an effort to update you all on our recent projects over the weekend.

As an aside the workshop doors are open and I just looked up and spotted a male House Sparrow perched on the door handle of our Defender, how odd…

  1. Interested in getting one for a 6.5 Creedmore. Tikka Tac A1. Either carbon or metal. Do you have any available?
    Thank

    1. We are going to make another run of these in the near future, I cannot be more specific at this stage other than it should be in the net few weeks.

  2. It would be interesting to see a cz bag rider. I have a new cz 457 MTR and I can see this being a great piece for it.
