A development of the Model P action, The Model P-Chey is a conventional single shot, cylindrical forward-locking turn bolt design, available in either left or right handed configuration. Designed to handle the .408 Chey-Tac or the .505 Gibbs cartridges.

The receiver is a 4340 chrome/moly/nickel steel solid bottom cylinder, which is through hardened to 38Rc and finish machined after surface hardening to ensure concentricity.

Supplied as standard with the Barnard Target trigger.
