Ok fellas, I've done gone and done it. I ordered a long range rifle to go with my new scope that I just got. So that means I must be in stage 2 of the new rifle process......impatiently waiting!!! The new shootin' iron will be made of the following components:
APS Raptor action
APS/Lilja Stalker contour barrel
Manners MCS-2TA stock in dark urban flectarn camo
Zeiss Conquest Scope; 6.5 x 20 x 50 with Rapid Z 1000 reticle
338 Allen Express (how could I forget!)
As I said on Kirby's "Raptor is in" Thread, it is one of the most impressive actions I have ever seen. It works as smooth as silk and is hefty, hefty, hefty. Beautiful workmanship and an inspired design.
So....here I am in the same boat as many of you who have had to anxiously wait on your new baby. I may need some group support to endure this wait. Hey, do you suppose we could form a "support group for expecting new long range gun owners to be"?
