Barrel Pac-nor #7 contour 30 inchs
Richards Microfit Stock, Bedded

EGW 20 moa picatinny rail
Nightforce 3.5-15x50 NP-R2
I know it is a Browning, but I love them and it is so easy to make them shoot EVEN BETTER! This is my fourth custom Browning build and have had nothing but good to say about all of the results so far!

Who's your smith? How much work did you have to put into the stock to make it fit right? Pretty sweet rig!!

I am the smith and the stock took about 5 hours including bedding.

Re: New build, browning a-bolt

I actually really liked the Browning rifles. I liked the 60 degree bolt throw. But man they sure were expensive. Plus I shoot left handed so they charge more for shooters like me, so I chose not to pay extra because I have to shoot backwards.
