Summer Makeover Time-Warning Gun Porn

For many of us it seems that summer is "make over time" or time to get a new rifle ready for next season.

For me it's makeover time. This is my .300 Rum Sendero. It's a trued SII still in the original stock which has been bedded and I added the front accessory rail for the bipod mount; which proved to be a little bigger project than I originally intended but it's there to stay now.

To start with I was just going to cut out an inlet exactly the size of the rail mount in order to give it a nice tight groove to sit in where it would never budge. I found that getting it in there deep enough caused some issues with the mount so I then did a little more carving and then used a rasp across the full width of the stock and I really like the results. I went ahead and took it down all the way to the aluminum strut that runs the full length of the stock to ensure that once my screws were in they'd be there for life. I also used devcon epoxy to add further strength.

The target is from 300yds. After I put the whole thing back together I decided prior to taking pictures I'd see just how much my zero had moved. Well I gat set up for my 800yds Rock, dialed up my 12.5MOA on the IOR, pulled the trigger and smoked it dead center. The two follow up shots were within 2" of the first so I decided it's still ok.

Let's see some more!

Nice looking rifle! I don't have a problem painting a rifle. I just don't have the guts to take a spray gun to a high end piece of glass

Thanks, don't worry about the paint, it washes right off with some carburetor cleaner!

When I make my mind up once and for all on what I want for a pattern the paint will come off and be replaced with cerakote anyhow.

Very nice. If it shoots as good as it looks you have a winner.

That is the test of good camo vs "tacticool".
