Next Move will be some new Firearms

I will be at SHOT. I have not missed SHOT since the first show in 1976(??). I plan to meet with several Manufactures to get some new rifles built in 5mm. I built a Savage into a 5mm about 6/7 years ago. The Aguila staff could not locate it but, I intend to build another rifle. I will be at the Aquila Industry Party.- Alan Aronstein

So it REALLY DOES exist !!!

Not wanting to be the one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but....

Didn't Aguila tell us a while back that they were going to be coming out with new loads with a better bullet selection ?? An exciting announcement was coming ??


The new offering (apparently the one and ONLY new offering)...which I am glad to see....appears to be no more than a slower version of their original JHP load from the first run.

Am I wrong ??

The original Centurion(Aguila) had some serious splat factor, more than 17WSM, by Al's clay testing. Hope the velocity is close, at least to the first run. The price is, well I don't know how they think we will be buying cases at that price!!

I reckon the price is designed to keep us from buying it all right away and then bugging them for more for the next decade.

Anxious to see the results of velocities and destruction.

I may go ahead with plans on having my 5mm fancied ...

5mm Rifles

I plan to meet with several Rifle Manufactures at the SHOT Show. I hope tp convince them to make NEW rifles in 5mm RF. That would help to make the supply of 5mm Ammunition available on a regular basis. I think that Aguila got the current production out the door at a fair price on a spot run as opposed to a standard production run !!! The longer the run there is a "Possibly" of lowering the prices. However, I personally think they took a short profit on these ??? Also, I remember when the 591 and 592 came out that they sold VERY fast. I was working as a dealer salesman at a Large Remington Distributor. I also remember that Remington instantly recalled ALL!!! of them to have the extractors replaced. Any thoughts on NEW rifles ?? - Alan Aronstein

Would LOVE to see a Ruger 77/5 !!!!

A new CZ would, no doubt, be a quality piece. As would an approximation of a Remington 541-T.

Would have NO interest in a new Savage if it mirrored the garbage feeling of the B-Mag......
