Brownells has the Q Fix in 6.5 Creedmoor now in stock. Paul Levy, the guy you so often see doing the Brownells videos, released a quick overview of it yesterday. The original Fix (in .308) was designed at the behest of Q Founder Kevin Brittingham (@kevinbrittingham) by a team that included Patrick Law (formerly of Accuracy International), Brian McDonald (formerly with SIG), Lindsay Bunch and Robby Johnson (both former Army snipers of impeccable pedigree), and Ethan Lessard, formerly with SIG and AAC.

That might not be exactly the gun design equivalent of the ’97-’98 Red Wings, but if not, it’s close.

Here’s the official description:

The Fix by Q is the result of science & experience, combined with passion and drive to bring a completely unconventional bolt action rifle to market.

The Fix is designed to be lightweight, modular and provide superior precision out of a compact platform.  Lightweight aluminum housing encloses a short, 45 degree throw bolt, fed from a SR-25/DPMS pattern 308 magazine.  The incredibly light & crisp two stage trigger breaks cleanly at close to 2 lbs.  Internal safety mechansims ensure drop safety, while a completely rethought trigger/sear/striker design allows incredible repeatability & reliability.  Floating bolt head locks up consistently in the barrel extension, and allows for future changing of calibers.  Fully adjustable folding stock fits any body type & shooting position, while allowing for transportation in the smallest bags & cases.

  • 6.5 Creedmoor model features a 22inch 1-7 twist barrel for optimal velocity & performance
  • Trigger provides a light, crisp and safe trigger pull
  • Bartlein barrel with a Tooley match chamber
  • Stock is fully adjustable & foldable
  • Free floating forend accepts a variety of accessories & rail attachments using Qsert system

  • Included optic rail
  • Bolt handle and head are easily removable

The Fix represents a new take on the precision rifle, and has everything needed to provide the ultimate in accuracy and portability.
