    The wait for impulse


    Hopefully, Savage will be rolling these out soon. Can't stand it when manufacturers promote the release of something then it takes a year or more. Kind of like the Sig Cross. Have seen a handful of this for sale and definitely not one in 277 Sig. Just bored hoping savage actually gets them shipping soon.

    I saw a 308 hog hunter for sale, but am waiting for a 243 caliber predator model.
    Since my predator season ends in less than two weeks, I'm not in a big rush to get one now, but that won't stop me from jumping on one if it comes up for sale tomorrow.
    Savage said they'll be out in March of 2021, so they have 15 days to make good on that claim.

    The initial wait is over for my 243 impulse predator to become available, Now I'm waiting for it to be shipped to my FFL.
    Maybe just maybe it might get here before the 28th and I can get to hunt with it before the season ends.

    Glad to hear an impulse has been found! Of course I was getting jittery and ordered a benelli 20ga. Effectively draining the secret gun fund!!

    Secret gun funds are a myth. Wink wink nod nod

    Not really hyped on this action but later down the road when the
    used one's hit the street, I'd like to look into making an Urban
    pump, similar to the ol' 760 Remmy, but in Mil dress

    Think the impulse is really intriguing. Don't think I will get one as soon as I see one in stock, but sure at some point I'll have to get one just to play with/take apart and look at the engineering.

    I have one more Nuisance coyote to deal with, then I'll be taking my Impulse apart to have the barrel fluted.
    I'll post pics when I'm in the process.

    Here's some pics on how to remove the barrel.
    Pics are out of wack and I can't get then to go in the sequence I want them to.
    Pic 3;
    Shows the three lower bolts that need to be loosened.
    The 4th offset bolt to the right of the three secures the cross post that indexes and secures the barrel extension to the receiver.

    Pic 4;
    Shows the cross pin removed.

    Pic 1;
    Shows the barrel Assy pulled slightly out, to show the recess area for the cross bolt and how the barrel lug mate's to the receiver and extension.

    Pic 2;
    Shows the receiver and barrel Assy apart.

    All of the bolts are the same size and thread, so no worry about messing up their orientation.
    It took 25 lbs of torque to loosen them and no thread locker on any of the bolts.
    None of my barrel nut wrenches fit the barrel nut and I gave up trying to separate the extension from the barrel, as I was trying to do it with a pair of large channel lock pliers, with masking tape to keep from marring the nut.
    The nut must have some type of thread locker, as it wasn't budging.
    Since I'm leaving it a .243, I'm not to concerned about it not coming apart.
    Now I need to figure out who I'm going to use to flute the barrel.
