APR G2: Alamo’s New Affordable Action Alternative

Alamo Precision Rifles, which focuses on affordable, high-quality, custom precision rifles, recently released its APR G2 action. Integrating several features previously reserved for high-end custom actions, the APR G2 is an economical, feature-rich solution for any custom rifle build.

According to Robert Waggoner, owner of Alamo Precision Rifles, the APR G2 is a response to customer demand. “The shooting community spoke, and we listened. The original APR action came about as an attempt to create a higher-quality, yet cost-effective, alternative to a trued factory action. It was really intended to fill a specific niche in our hunting build lineup, which it does very well.  However, we immediately began getting requests for a version geared more toward the long-range/tactical and DIY market.  We were completely onboard with the idea, as this category represents a large part of our core business. We combined a list of features and changes that would make it excel in this role and worked closely with Thompson Leh to get them implemented. We are excited with the results and very pleased that we were able to keep the costs down to a level that makes this version every bit the value that the original APR action represents.”

Standard APR action features include a Remington 700 footprint, controlled-round feed, mechanical ejector, one-piece bolt, double-pinned .250 recoil lug, 8×40 scope base holes, toolless fire-control removal, oversize bolt knob, and a spiral fluted bolt. In addition, the action accepts any Remington 700-style trigger.

The upgraded G2 action includes 1 1/16 x 20 TPI threads, wire EDM raceways for more uniform tolerances and smoother cycling, a pinned 20 MOA rail for more secure scope mounting, smaller ejection port cut-out for a more rigid action body, .062 firing pin to accommodate SRP brass, and a full DLC coating for more corrosion protection. The APR G2 is available in standard and magnum short-action and standard and magnum long-action configurations.
