I’m preparing to purchase a seekins element in 7 prc, just waiting for it to become available. In the meantime I’ve found a local dealer with a Christensen mesa fft in stock. I’m very nervous to pull the trigger on the Christensen due to all the horror stories I’ve read about… does anybody have much positive to say about the mess fft ? Should I just wait for seekins? The other issue is I’m an oregon resident and we have a lovely new gun law coming into affect in December essentially prevent us from buying Guns so not sure I can really wait for the seekins.

Supposedly the law goes into effect on the 8th, and after that there will be no firearm sales. Unless you have a CHL, your background check will most likely not be processed in time. Buy what you can now and hope it clears in time, or wait for nobody knows how long to get the permit. We can all hope it gets expunged but I won’t be holding my breath.

I have own several Christensens. All were shooters.

There are a lot of variables to accuracy, probably only 10% or less of folks really understand what is required to get an accurate group, so choose your internet stories wisely.

Absolutely, hard to filter.

I posted the same thing in the thread below, but most of the negative reviews are really old and took place before they brought their barrel manufacturing in house. I have owned several seekins and several christensens and I still have my christensens. My most recent purchase was an FFT in 280AI. Love that gun.

Your CHL will only help your background check wait time. Might be instant approval, might have to wait. Last I heard the que was 24,000 and they process around 800 a day.

I’ve got a Mesa fft. It’s a shooter for sure. Mines in 7mm mag. Thinking of selling it and getting the same rifle in 7prc. My CA and my Bergara are the best shooting rifles I’ve got.

Non problems at all with CA, accuracy etc. I had a friend with a mesa that got rebarreled, and believe the turn around time was around 2 weeks.

In fact yesterday I contacted their customer service and had a response right away, and they went above and beyond expectations. Top notch treatment in my book.

Does anyone know what the max length for the mags are in these CA’s? Can they accommodate handloads with the 195 Bergers?

The Element is 3.9”, which is huge. Tikka is only 3.34”, so will never fit anything larger than the 180 ELD-M.
