Re: Show off your rig thread

and here is my light wt. hunting rig
ULTRA LIGHT ARMS model 20S in 25X47 topped with a leupold 2.5x8 with the boone and crocket reticle . this set up is only 5 lbs 1.5 oz. complete with scope and sling.
my longest shot to date is 448 on a tahr in new zealand
this little round it shoots just works so well on these shot under 500
no recoil easy to load which would make it very nice for youth and woman but it has 1 problem here in the USA it does not have super duper mag in its name. to bad cuz it works like lighting.

Re: Show off your rig thread

My training wheel rifle cost $1385 for the rifle. thats with a Mcmillan stock. started about the first of July. Finished off November 22. Obviously you could spend a LOT more, also you could spend a little less. If you use a savage action(which i don't care for) or a Remmy action(which i love) it'd be cheaper. Also check out an unplugged article on www.realguns.com about him building a custom remington with only hand tools....pretty neat stuff....

I couldn't resist posting.
6mm Ackley Improved.
Stiller action, right bolt, left port.
Bartlein 1-8 varmint weight barrel.
Timmney trigger.
Nightforce 3.5-15 MLR
All machine work was done by Dean Parker from Wellsville, Utah.
It shoots high teens-low 20s. It gives me a tear of joy each time I stroke the trigger.








Here's a 6.5x284 built by Sanchez
Trued 700 action.
Leupold 8.5-25 Mark 4, Mill-dot
Timmney trigger
Stock by Simonson Machine out of Gooding, Idaho. I don't know much about the stock. I've looked it up and can't find anything on the web about it (anyone?).
30" Hart barrel.
Lisa shoots 140gr A-maxs into >8" groups a 1000+ with no wind.


Here's my Defensive Edge Canyon rifle.
338 Edge.
Nightforce 5.5x22 NP-R2
This is the gun I've spent the most time with lately. It's killed two black bear in Alaska and one muley in Idaho plus it's turned many, many rocks into gravel.

Re: Show off your rig thread

LRSickle, that stock you're asking about looks a lot like the stocks offered by D&L Sports (Dave Lauck) here in Gillette, Wy. Dave has been offering these for years, but I don't know if he makes them or buys them...
