They now have three different guns in .300 BLK.

The Scout and Scout V2 pistol.
Additional calibers available for the rifle are .35 Rem, .44 Mag, and 7mm-08. The .300 BLK has a 1:10" twist.
Additional calibers available for the pistol are .357 Mag, .44 Mag, and 243 Win. The .300 BLK has a 1:10" twist.

These do not have changeable barrels like the T/C Encore/Contender, H&R HandiRifles, or the CVA Apex line do. So whatcha buy it in, is whatcha got. Bud's price is ~$260.


The CVA Apex rifle does have changeable barrels.
Standard ~25" barrel view vs.

16.5" .300 BLK barrel appearance.

The Internet price is ~$550 for a rifle & one barrel. Bud's frame only price is $234 but you need a barrel
[Note from factory site:]
CVA Apex Barrel .300 AAC BLACKOUT features a 1:8 right hand twist rate, 16.5” length, 416 stainless steel, 5/8-24 TPI thread extension (combatable with AR-10 Accessories), and a knurled thread cap for thread extension on muzzle.

Neat, but what can it do that the AAC Handi in 300BLK can't do for cheaper?

Let's see, the interwebz price on an AAC Handi is about $350. The Scout versions get you into the .300 game cheaper. Obvious limitation with the twist that you're probably going to be limited to using the supersonic loads with the 1:10" twist. The Apex version at a higher price point will allow you to get extra barrels 'off the shelf' and not require a trip back to the factory fitting like an H&R does.

The AAC Handi is like a S&W 617, made of unobtainium. And additional companies producing firearms for a particular caliber is always a good sign. It is interesting that they chose to chamber for the .300 BLK rather than the 6.8 SPC.
