Thread: Yippee, my rifle has finally arrived!

    Yippee, my rifle has finally arrived!

    Hi guys

    After what seems like an age my rifle has finally arrived - im very pleased with it (understatement!)

    Varberger .243 (s/h)
    S&B 6x42 German - with reticle no. 2 (s/h)
    Wildcat Predator 8 Moderator (new)

    If I could post pics I would, but I don't know how!

    It seems a well made rifle, good wood with a nice palm swell, nice smooth bolt, and the barrel is almost as new condition. The scope is in pretty good condition too, just a couple of ring marks.

    Im surprised at how top heavy it is with the moderator on, I was set on not getting a bipod but now I might reconsider.

    So, its off to the range to get zeroed - ive bought 3 types of 100g ammunition so we'll see what it likes best.

    How sad am I - ive cleaned it twice already and ive only had it in my house for 3 hours!

    Happy days.
