I am starting on my shorty hog hunting rifle. I have my new SH4 Gen2 4-16MIL on order, as well as my new Outlier full chassis assembly. I will be posting updates to this project as things move along.
To start with, I know that this isn’t going to be a super light rifle, as that was never my plan. My intention for this rifle is to be a short, handy, agile, hog gitter!! The end goal, is to have as many parts of this project as possible to all be Arken and Outlier!! Below is the starting specs for the rifle, and may possibly change as I go along… pictures will follow…

Arken - SH4 G2 4-16 MIL
Arken - Halo low rings
Seekins - 20MOA scope rail

Outlier - 16” SS fluted match barrel in 6.5CM
SilencerCo - Harvester30 suppressor
Precision Underground - Kryptek cover
Weibad - Mini cheek pad
Ergo - Tactical grip
Atlas - BT10 bipod

MagPul - M4 tactical QD sling

Here is the latest state of the Hog Gitter. Soon, it will be sporting an Outlier barrel... "HOPEFULLY" this will be happenin soon!!
@reedster05 And speaking of the new scope, I am definitely looking forward to getting some time with the new 1-8 LPVO. I have several rifles and a couple of pistols that are just screaming for some of that new glass!!
From my understanding, it has been some sort of programming issues with the longer type actions. I know that the Savage and Remington short actions are shipping pretty regular now. I am sure they will get you fixed up as soon as they possibly can though.
You must be working with a Tikka or Axis or something?
This is what I have so far. I got the EP5 in, Arken Halo Low rings, as well as the Outlier chassis. However, it is put together with my Remington 700 SPS Tactical .308 16.5" heavy barrel. The barrel is new, but it will be replaced with an Outlier barrel once it comes available to me. So far, it shoots pretty well. We are gettin there!! Here piggy piggy piggy!!! 🤣
Has anyone heard anything on ETA for the chassis? Going into month 6 and still no word on when they will start actually shipping orders. Website still shows 3-5 week lead time but that clearly is way off.
OK, along with the scope has arriving, I now have the Precision Pack and rings. Things are startin to look up!
With the coupon, it comes in around $350 I think. Thats an excellent price for a turn-key chassis
I spoke directly with Mike Benedict. He is making me hopeful the chassis will be in my hands soon!! 👍
Looks like it will be around the end of the month when I get it. Stay tuned!!
OK, how about an update?!? I received my shipping notification on my scope, the SH4 4-16!! It won’t be long before the Gitter starts gettin together!!
Have you received your outlier chassis? I'm considering purchasing one for my R700 SA. They look great on the website but I'd love to see one first, or atleast get a customer review.
Gonna be an ass kick'in rig!
Wow! Sounds like a plan! Good luck with it. I’m way overdue to go hog hunting again!
