.308 mods....pics

I finally finished one of my rifles that I've been slowly working on for the last couple of years. The latest additions are the Jewell trigger, Williams Bottom Metal with Tactical Latch, and the Birdsong Black and Green "T" finish. Also Celt's bolt mod, Badger Bolt Knob and 20 MOA Rail and NightForce NXS 3.5-15x50. Rattlecan paint on the A3 turned out pretty good, but I'm not sure I'm satisfied yet...........

Very unique rig, do you do interior decorating [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] - I like the paint job, bet you get a few questions at the range when you set that puppy up.

Could you explain what the modification is that Celt does? Also interested to know what barrel you are using and what kind of accuracy you are getting.

I have the same scope on my ROCK. Great hunting scope in my opinion.

We do a mod very similar to Celt's except I use two screws and he uses three. Basically they go on a Remmy bolt handle to strengthen the solder joint. Check it out on the hide rifle over at snipershide.

Re: .308 mods....pics


Don't every post pictures like this again!! I'm thinking I gotta have one and I don't know what caliber or cartridge..... [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] (I have 223 Rem, 243 Rem, 6.5x284, 308 Win (doesn't everyone), 338 Lapua...I believe I see an opening... 300 RUM or 300 Win Mag.)

P. S. I don't want the big bolt handle mod...had one on a test rifle and couldn't mount a gee whiz $50,000.00 thermal sight and cycle the bolt...had to use a backup rifle with non-mod bolt handle.

Sorry Dave, wasn't trying to open your wallet... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Ric--the scope should look familiar [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] , but I have three of them now. I traded into two more after I got yours. I won't torture Dave by posting pics of the .300 RUM Nighthawk--unless he asks me to... [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] Hey Dave--I'll let you shoot a few deer with it if you take me mith you!!
After getting the "ammo accountant" job at work, I get access to free Federal GMM, so reloading for the .308 has been put on hold indefinitely. I'm getting groups in the .3" range with the GMM, so I dont waste my time handloading. I have enough to do loading .257 DGR, .300 Tommy, .300 RUM, .338 RUM and .223.......

Re: .308 mods....pics

Chris that's a piece of beautiful work! It wont hurt you to show Dave those pictures of the Nighthawk,But it will add to his collection [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img].

Dave sorry to hear you had problems with that big bolt handle but hey with a thermal image scope should should have been able to sneak up on them and use a .45 [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Ric was that the Nighthawk you just had gotten? If so what did you replace it with?
Courage,Spirit and Honor
