Bighorn TL3 Action - Standard Configuration

Product Description

Bighorn Arms TL3 receivers are the next generation of products from the superb Bighorn Arms lineup. The original TL actions set the standard in custom rifle actions for repeatability, ease of use by the gunsmiths, and demonstrated class-leading accuracy.  The floating bolt heads allow easy cartridge size swap and multi-caliber use in a single receiver for a versatile rifle that is just as useful in an international-level shooting competition as in the field hunting, range time, and teaching future generations to shoot and enjoy riflery.

The next step was the TL2 action which hosted a pinned scope rail interface, integrated recoil lug, new tang options and a Remington 700 footprint for use in standard-inlet stocks.  

The TL3 began as an evolution of the TL2 but has surpassed such a description into a whole new product.  The TL3 retains the ultra-repeatable, finely machined quality of the TL and TL2 with the added benefits of Controlled Round Feed, Mechanical Ejection, AW and AICS magazine compatability, 1-1/16 x 20 TPI "Savage" threads, bayonet style bolt shroud mounting for easy disassembly, adjustable firing pin protrusion and more options for scope rails.

The action being ordered here is configured as follows:

  • Right Hand
  • Right Port
  • Short Action
  • AW Mag Cut
  • Medium Tang
  • 20 MOA Rail
  • 308 Bolt Face
  • Tactical Bolt Knob

(all TL3 actions come with 20TPI tenon threads)


Actions are available in a multitude of options including "off port" configurations for F-class and BR shooters that want easy access to the ejection port for single-loading disciplines.  Customers looking for a custom configuration should use this link instead:


All receivers are serialized and must ship to an FFL. The TL3 is currently in general production and delivery.  Contact PVA thru our website for stock status. General lead time for these actions is inside 4 weeks currently.

 IMPORTANT NOTICE: Insurance on the package is at the buyer's discretion. The shipping insurance option will not be automatically added.  If a customer elects to ship the product without insurance and something happens during transit Patriot Valley Arms will not assume any liability whatsoever.

    I have 6 TL2's & 2 SR2, this new TL3 is absolutely fantastic. Super slick, runs flawlessly. It is everything you'd expect from Bighorn. Accurate mags are running great with no modification. Definitely wont be the last one I own. thanks again Josh for spinning up the 22 creed for me.

    Although i did get the left hand version, this action is amazing. I have shot remingtons, savages, winchesters but man this thing is amazing! Smooth, reliable and headspaces easily. This thing has all the features you could want in a custom action. I will be purchasing a second for sure
