The OUTCAST is a precision bolt action designed specifically for building modern muzzle loading rifles.  It is designed to use the Hankins Ignition System – Made by Hank’s Precision Gun Parts (Standard Bolt Face [.473”] modules), or Arrowhead Rifles Gen 2 muzzleloader ignition system. The OUTCAST Action utilizes a “shell holder” type bolt face allowing the module to be conveniently loaded and unloaded.  The bolt stop is positioned so the shell holder is always easy to get to and the solid bottom receiver prevents the module from falling into hard-to-reach areas.  Additionally, the finer 20 T.P.I. thread allows for more hoop strength in the barrel.
