The TL3 Short Action is Bighorn Arms’ flagship action. It was designed for tactical operators and boasts “magazine feed perfection” for smooth feeding and ejection either slow and controlled or fast and with force. Machined from pre-hardened 416 stainless steel, this high-performance action features an integrated recoil lug, Savage small-shank thread tenon, controlled round feed, spiral fluted bolt, a mechanical ejector, and a bayonet-style firing pin assembly. A floating, interchangeable bolt head allows for multiple cartridges to be fired with this same versatile action, once the barrel and bolt head have been swapped out.

Tang options include “trim,” “medium,” and “thick,” with trim being the most versatile and closest to standard Remington 700 actions. Medium is the same footprint with slightly more thickness at the rear, and thick may be more aesthetically pleasing in some chassis, although it may require some custom inletting in some stocks.

For sheer versatility and performance in an action, Bighorn Arms’ TL3 is a great choice. And, as durable and rugged as this action is, you won’t have to give the TL3 a whole lot of TLC.
