    Forbes 24 (aka Ultra Light Arms)

    Since arriving in the US at the end of last year I have been mulling over what to buy. I wanted an all round rifle (excluding large game) and it had to be light enough to carry all day as I intend to go to Africa for my 40th to shoot plains game. I looked at the custom route and whilst its still good value in the US sourcing a left hand action was becoming a challenge and the leadtime for delivery was long.

    When visiting the outdoor show in January I stumbled across the Forbes 24 rifle which is a productionised version of the Ultra Light Arms rifle.

    I was really impressed with it's spec:
    Kevlar Composite Stock (5 colours to choose from)
    Full-Length Glass Bedded
    Cheekpiece
    Timney Trigger
    24" ER Shaw Stainless Steel Barrel
    1x10" Twist
    Spiral Fluted Bolt
    Talley 1" Lightweight Mount Set
    LOP - 13 3/4"
    Weight - 5 lbs. 12 oz. (w/Mounts)
    Avaliable in a dedicated left hand action.
    Sub MOA accuracy

    At a price of $1600 (1000gbp)

    I couldn't argue with the logic so last week made the plunge and ordered one. To go on top I have ordered the Zeiss Conquest 3.5-10 x 50.

    I will keep you posted on how it shoots and would be interested to hear if any one has shot one of these yet and how they found it.

    I have fitted and shot a few E.R. Shaw barrels. They weren't' memorable one way or the other. Hope you're happy with it. What caliber?~Muir

    Went for a 30-06 Muir. The dealer I have order it from, Hendershots have had a few out at the range and were impressed so I have my fingers crossed as well.
