Re: McMillan EOL Outdoorsman Long Range Rifle

Defiance Machine is my neighbor, they have 2 cnc at something like a mil a pop. That is just for actions. Most smiths cant afford that type of overhead and work is subbed out. A rifle manufacturing building is being done down the road from me, mil property, multi mil 25,000 ft. building, then the other mils for the manufacture end. It will produce top end rifles, that the cost will reflect, same as McMillian. There overhead has to be large.Product is fine and sought after.

Re: McMillan EOL Outdoorsman Long Range Rifle

I got the rifle out this morning preparing it for another range test. I brought the trigger down to 19 ounces crisp and clean for some serious long range hunting work. With a hunting rifle I prefer not to go less than that so I have some resistance and can feel it with cold fingers.

I am getting very little fouling with the Schnieder polygon barrel. I did the standard barrel break in on it and now it cleans very easily.

Is Schnieder the barrel which came on the EOL

Yes, the Schneider P5 polygon is standard on all McMillan EOL rifles.

Re: McMillan EOL Outdoorsman Long Range Rifle

The finish is what we call a Three color granite. You can mix any three colors we paint with, this particular combination is olive base with black and tan specs. The 3 color granite have quickly become the most popular of any of our painted finishes.
