Winniefred: New Stiker Action

Steve Barber has developed a new stiker action that he calls the Winniefred.

An excellent new striker action to meet the needs of single shot rifle users.

He has made the new action available to some old Schuetzen shooters to test out.

It will be nice to be able to obtain a great striker action to replace the Miller DeHass which is no longer available.

Well it sure has a Robust appearance. Looks very strong. The Tapered Recoil
shoulders give it strong appearance. I wonder if there is any adjustment
in the Lever linkage that would allow adjustment for head Space change if you wished. Look forward to more information and price for this. I hope it is a Thru Bolt stock. FITZ, OLD TUCK Smiley

Steve brought his finished rifle with that action to Spokane this year and did very well with it. He also brought 4 or 5 kits which he sold.  The kits were designed to be finished with normal shop tools.  Required a standard large tap for the receiver barrel threads.  He had just come from the designerís where they had taken iPhone photos and videos of a complete process of machining the kit.  Left the phone on the wood stove in the bunkhouse.  Someone built a fire (oops). He was going to stop at the Apple store in Portland on his way home to see if the data could be retrieved.  The only problem I could see with the action is that it didnít have an external hammer for up traditionalists.

That's an odd looking block. What are the projections that come way up above the sides of the receiver on a closed block?

This is a picture of a prototype.

I have not yet seen what the final action looks like.

I wish I had taken some photos but the production action is a much cleaner design.

Dave,

I think Will bought one of the kits.  Maybe he can provide some info

Yes the Canadians have bought the kits.

They are waiting for Steve's instruction video before they start to assemble.

When one is completed I will take pictures.
