Thread: New Toy finally complete

  1. #1

    New Toy finally complete

    Well after lots of indecision on my part my first new rifle for many years is complete in its final form now the scope is here ! 6.5 X 47 with an 18'' barrel and S&B 3- 27 X 56 on top, well pleased with it, next step get out and see how it shoots ! Big thanks to Paddy for helping put it together.

    I like it a lot. Have you used a proof research barrel?

    I would appreciate it if you could let me know what velocity you are achieving with the 18" barrel.

    Its not a proof one I spoke to them but they won't make to your spec, or would not do so at the time and these were slightly cheaper and available to my spec.

    I will let you now , just need the time to get out with it !

    Very nice,
    What weight is the rifle with/without scope?
    Stock weight?
    I am only asking because I built a similar set-up (light weight tactical) and am also weighing components. Might also try making myself a carbon barrel.

    I will do some weighing, I did weigh it with the other scope and without the brake on it but cant remember what the hell it came in at.

    I think most of the weight will be the scope / bi pod .

    I have been looking for a lighter stock option but its a struggle to find some thing thats available and ticks the box's . I have looked at Mcmillan but then it's the messing about bedding and bottom metal to add weight wise. The manners makes it an easy build with the bedding block set up.

    Hi.
    What make is the Barrel and are they available? I like the carbon barrels. A friend has a Christenson in 7-08 and is very accurate. Interesting looking rings too.

    Pretty much what I was going to ask.

    Very nice rifle with tip top components.
    Did you source the Manners over here or bring it over yourself?
