.338 Lapua mag build

My hunting buddy begged me to make him a rifle, here it is. Stevens 200 LA turned into a .338 Lapua mag with early Timberwolf mag and bottom metal. Gaillard barrel, Holland brake, Farrel base, TPS rings, Falcon Menace, Kydex cheekpiece I made, my freehanded bolt knob and a quality custom stock. It shoots good enough to win in F Class [edit - if it were allowed, it shot informally along with us] with 225 accubonds, he was one point behind me at 600. I had a tattoo artist paint it, his first rifle job. Overall I'm very happy with his paint job but I failed to tell him it was important to paint the rings, sear, trigger and cheekpiece bolts which didn't get the first coat of Ceracoat. I waited forever to get this painted, until I found this guy then it was no problem.

    Sweet rifle man. I like that you used a Stevens action. I know you won't disappointed in your decision.

    Nice looking stick! What a paint job! Kind of scary and creapy looking...did you name it the grim reaper?
