We teamed up with MANAEL firearms manufacturers and Warwick Firearms Australia to deliver a bolt-on solution for the new WFA1-L Bolt Action Rifle. Its called the FABA Kit (or Forward Assist Bolt Action), which creates an easy forward operation of the bolt action, with an ergonomic foregrip. No changes to rifle category. Just easy, ergonomic use.
The 2019 Ignition Custom Winter Classic Precision Rifle Series Australia match is done and dusted for another year.
Yes, that pun was intended. Dust the biggest challenge of the day. But plenty of fun! Close competition and surprise stages. Read more for full review including winners.
It started with a Remington 700 and a very loud Cerakote job....but all good things come to an end, including the reign of the notorious Ignition Custom NERF Rifle. We pay tribute to the work horse that served us through two years of Australian precision and practical rifle events (2016 to 2018).
A custom build can be a big process, but it doesn't have to be done all at once. What's the rush? Explore how this Remington build was staged to assist with budgeting and to get familiar with new components or modifications one piece at a time before deciding what's next.
This week's build report looks at a Remington 700 rebuilt into a Grayboe Renegade stock, designed for South Australian field use.
Today we look at a ground-up custom build by our Adelaide gunsmiths, capable of competition-grade performance at 1000m distances. The new owner and lucky shooter only needs to fit a scope, head to the field and step it out as far as their skill allows.
One of our specialties as gunmiths (and passions as shooters!) is precision and practical rifle series (PRS) style competition - so that formed the overall direction and theme of this custom rifle build. It had to be something easy to maneuver in movement competition with reliable performance and precision accuracy.
One happy customer: This gun was built for speed and Precision Rifle Series style competition with a specific design focus on fighting wind. The Precision Rifle Products Chassis was a key factor in this! Check out the video and info about it.
It uses 107 grain projectiles which have almost identical wind drift as a 230 grain Berger 30 cal projectile from 300 win mag, out to 1000m.
This CZ P09 is a beautiful example of how a small and simple modification can have a massive impact.
It was delivered to us in factory condition, including full standard black finish.
We finished the slide and safety release in Titanium Cerakote (leaving the frame as standard). Its a relatively inexpensive and quick change. But the results were impressive.
Our customer was thrilled to take home a custom and unique looking handgun.
It’s hard to beat a customised rifle for precision. Custom builds and aftermarket modifications allow you to control each element of the set-up. This means maximum performance beyond most factory/production rifles. But where to begin? Options are almost endless.
The term “tactical” conjures up many images (such as those extreme tacticool operators, who kit out their gear with enough rails to mount their frypan and camping equipment). In this custom build, tactical meets clean, classic and (dare we say it?) classy!
Presenting the ICEng Action Slicking Spring & Roller Kit which includes all the aftermarket parts to smooth out the cycling action of the Adler A110. We've been working with IPSC competitors for the past few months to test the various components under high pressure situations and (after a few tweaks) we've found a combination we are very happy with.
Thanks to custom picatinny rail created in-house by our gunsmiths, this 22LR Lithgow Crossover now has the elevation adjustment to shoot out to 400m on dial-alone.
The rifle was set up for long-range competition use (precision rifle and field) but the factory mounting options didn’t support enough scope elevation. This was reducing the amount of elevation available, costing time and accuracy when finding and hitting the target.
So, our gunsmiths created a picatinny rail in 55MOA to allow maximum elevation adjustment. The rail was made to suit the length and size of receiver, with a cut out for the ejection port and drilled/tapped to suit. It was finished in black Cerakote.
With a trigger job to bring the factory trigger down to 1lb, it is ready for some accurate competition and field work.

Not every firearm is equal when it comes to sight mounting options. We can create a custom picatinny rails for any handgun, rifle or shotgun. All 100% Aussie made by our gunsmiths at our Adelaide workshop. Rails can be made in any size up to 600mm (24") but its not just the length that counts, right? ...
Our client was wanting to reduce eye strain and aid clarity of vision by moving to a a sight/scope that allowed two-eye target acquisition while shooting pistol competition with their Colt 1911 Rail Gun. The Vortex Viper 6MOA Red Dot was the answer, but this Colt was just not designed to accommodate it.
Installing an off-the-shelf picatinny rail meant the sights would sit too high (there would be too much offset between the sight and the bore).
This design needed to be low profile, high speed and low drag for competition. So we created a custom picatinny rail with a lower profile and modified to slide to create a tidy recess for the rail to nestle into.
After finishing in Cerakote, the pistol was ready to go. Now there is a happy shooter rocking their Rail Gun with a new Vortex Viper and both eyes on target.
This is footage is courtesy of a customer using an ICEng custom “Operation Bikki Bikki” Flash Hider while shooting with a thermal/night vision scope. At about the 3 second mark, the shot is fired (it was a confirmed clean and quick kill) and the 60kg boar drops. Usually a white light would wash over the scope, but the flash hider keeps it nice and dark.
The flash hider is designed to remove the bright muzzleflash from shooting that can wash out night vision and disrupt target acquisition in low-light situations. Instead, the shooter is free to move onto the next target without delay (or can remain on-target to give accurate and immediate follow up shot if required).
The flash hider used in this video is the Operation Bikki Bikki model, custom made in-house at Ignition Custom Engineering. It includes the prong piece, which screws onto a threaded barrel, and a removable blast shield.
It can be customised for any calibre, fabricated from stainless steel and can be finished in Cerakote. You can buy it now using the link below. As it is a custom made piece per order, turnaround is 3-4 weeks.
