The two position safety blocks the firing pin when to the rear, and allows the weapon to fire in the forward position. The match grade, free floating barrel is screwed into the action through the heavy duty recoil lug. This provides a rigid mount and results in consistent cold shot performance. A barrel can be changed in less than ten minutes using the barrel change kit. The AE MkII features a round machined wrought steel action, with a Picatinny rail screwed onto the action. The stiffness of the chassis means that any available surface can be used to support the rifle with no effect on accuracy. Its construction means that it is impervious to weather. When folded, the overall length is reduced by 8ins (210mm). Ideal for rapid deployment from a vehicle, the stock locks in the folded position for security and to avoid noise. Released by simply pulling on the butt, the wear compensated hinge ensures total rigidity in the extended position. This option is screwed on to the action by 4 screws providing a standard interface for many optical systems. This option adds 0.4lb (0.2kg) to the weight. The rifle is fitted with a two-stage trigger, which allows a large sear engagement to be maintained until the user takes up the first stage. This reduces the chance of an accidental discharge if the rifle is jolted when cocked. The trigger is adjustable for pull weights of 3.3-4.4lb (1.5-2.0kg). The trigger assembly can be easily removed for cleaning by undoing two screws. The standard adjustable cheekpiece adjusts left/right as well as for height to obtain optimum cheek position when using night vision equipment or telescopic sights with large objective lenses. The 0.75” (20mm) diameter steel close fitting bolt combined with vents and a gas shroud minimises blowback in the event of cartridge failure. The integral short throw bolt handle (60°) with large bolt knob, lies close to the stockside just above the trigger to minimise movement of the user’s hand. The bolt can be field stripped without tools for cleaning. Four sling attachment points are fitted as standard. Two are mounted on each side of the weapon, so the rifle can be carried flat against the back for security and comfort over rough terrain and long distances. The chassis has integral fixing points for bipods to suit both Accuracy International and Harris designs.One flush fitting, five shot detachable steel magazine is included. This industry-leading design is corrosion resistant and low friction for reliable feeding. An optional ten shot magazine is also available.
