Just for the record Travis...

The trigger is indeed a Timney, Clavin Elite, made for a Remington 700 series. However, the secondary sear is a proprietary item, ONLY available from W.A.R. I can't say if Jim has any left, but if you're going to keep the rifle, buy one if you can. It is the only "wear" item on the rifle.

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

My understanding is WAR is in negotiations to be sold.  Hopefully the company will sell and the new owner will be as pleasant to deal with as Jim.

I have never met Jim just talked to him a few times.  He is a really nice guy and the air gun community is missing out losing him.

Well, if WAR can resurrect and offer the old style Flex at a more realistic price, I think the “Frankestein gun” concept has merit as a utility, survival, dedicated hunting platform. $800 might not be realistic to make money on the guns, but $800-$1000 would be about the right price to justify their existence in this competitive market.

If my short Flex had a light weight body that was still rugged, it would be the perfect .30 carbine hunter.
