Daughter's new 338 Lapua (from Kirby)

Thanks to Kirby for building a very special rifle for my daughter! This was for her 14th birthday, and a reward for a great season of competitive shooting.

Specs are:
APS Raptor action
Lilja #7 barrel 26"
3 port APS pain killer brake
McMillan A5 stock (in her chosen blue, green and brown mix)
Jewel trigger

As always the quality and workmanship from Kirby is flawless!

We have only had the opportunity to shoot it a few times, but all indications are that it is going to going to shoot as I have come to expect from Kirby...... awesome!

Thanks again Kirby for going the extra mile and building a special rifle for Elizabeth that she will cherish her entire life.

Rick

So now we can officially say, "338 Lapua is for girls!" ;)

Very nice birthday present!

Re: Daughter's new 338 Lapua (from Kirby)

Thanks guys! Thanks Feenix.... I did not know I could rotate the pic once it was inserted, much better!

No adoptions are available at this time. With her competitive shooting and a younger brother about to get started, it is about to break me buying guns, bullets and coaching. I wouldn't have it any other way! I love watching my kids shoot!
