Not all rifles have to be black plastic

Just a pic of my Sauer 202 with PES moderator. I think she's a good looking rifle and the wood is no problem in the Scottish rain. You can take the stock and fore-end off and make sure its dry without altering the zero. Takes about 5 mins. At present I have a 308 barrel on her but once the the pheasant season is over I use a 7x64 brenneke barrel with additional iron sights for the open fell.

I never knew you could have antlers mounted to the scope. Does that help camophlage the rifle? :D :D :D
No it helps camouflage the rifle. :lol: :D :D

The antlers are when you are calling them in during the rut. You keep calling until the stag comes running into lock antlers with your set on the end of your rifle, waving them about a bit helps keep his attention fix on them, once he gets to with in 5 yards you let him have it. Using this technique you can save a lot of dragging of stags as you can stand on the back of your 4X4 pick up and only shot when he has jumped on to the back of the truck. :evil:

Hi mate I am well pleased with the A-Tec, much lighter than my T8 and my mates PES Scout, and it makes the PES 12 seem sooooooooooooo heavy. I can still carry my rifle with bi-pod and moddy fitted muzzle up without it keep swinging round. It tames the recoil on the 270 (like most moddies) it is like shooting a 22cf. :D

The Scope is a S@B 3-12X50 precision hunter with mil-dot reticle.

I'm sort of interested in a synthetic stock for my next rifle but I am put off by the very shiny barrels and action that seem to be standard on them. I notice that the green stocked rifle has a nicely camouflaged barrel and action - is that standard or a custom job?

Hi Paul

It is a custom finish, Dura coat done by "Jager sporting Arms" it is a very tough Polymer finish, you can have pretty much any colour pattern you want so long as your pockets are deep enough. One colour jobs are £95+vat.

The US military have had there 50 cal sniper rifles that are now being issued for Iraq coated in a desert camo Dura-Coat. ;)

The A-Tec is advantages are that it is lighter and is strippable so you can clean it after use. It will cost you about £75 extra for that.

For a stalking rifle I think the weight saving is worth it, you carry a stalking rifle a lot and shoot it little, if it was a gun that you did not carry much (varminting or truck gun) you might think it that you would be better with a T8 if things are real tight money wise.

I have the above green on my 7mm mag and it is a great non reflective colour..note the SS barrel this is a just built rifle that I had to take out for a run when I got it home,she`s all cammed now scope included.




This is Mothwing orange on my Sako trg-s 300 WM,(originally black)

Mark,

That's a superb looking rifle. I went through the "should I go for wood or plastic" dilema when I bought mine. I decided (based mainly on advice from on here) to go for a stainless / plastic one. Whilst I don't regret the decision I do look on with envy at lovely wooden stocked ones like yours.

I couldn't bring myself to do some of the stuff to a lovely wooden one that I've done to my stainless plastic one.

Enjoy it. It's a beauty.

Many years back I had the opportunity to tour the SIG factory over in Switzerland(Schaffhausen). It was one hell of a place and quality standards both for their manufacturing equipment (which was the reason for the visit) and for thier rifles was 2nd to none.

Bit over the top for the pheasants:eek::doh:.......What's the meat damage like:lol::lol::lol::lol:?

TJ
Unless you hit bone like a leg and only hit the neck then the result is one cleanly killed pheasie ;) However hit the leg say when it just decides to scratch it's head and you'll lose half the carcase due to bone fragments :rolleyes: after the bone explodes.

Likewise neck shots with 130 grn .308 bullets on rabbits are not so good either. Head only if you want a usable carcase ;).
