Barnard Model PLM Action

Developed for use in our Model 10 repeating rifle from our PL action and using a modified 2 stage Barnard target trigger. In 338 Lapua Magnum only. Uses the Accuracy International 338 Lapua 5 shot Magazine.

Please note:

  • No separate bottom metal is available.
  • Action mounting screws are not in the standard Barnard Model P/PL configuration.
  • The standard Barnard Target trigger has been modified to suit this action.

A development of the Model PL action, the Model PLM is of conventional, cylindrical forward locking turn bolt design, in either left or right handed configuration.

The bolt carries three forward locking lugs, is equipped with a Sako style extractor and a bolt face plunger type ejector. It undergoes finish machining after hardening, and is hand lapped to its mating receiver.

The receiver is of 4340 chrome/moly/nickel steel through hardened to 38Rc and finish machined after surface hardening to ensure concentricity.
