  • Nightforce NXS scope - 3.5-15x50 $1485 or a similar scope for around 1000$
  • Harris bipod - HBBR-S $100
  • decent set of rings - $80 approx
  • Hs precision detachable magazine - $80
  • Jewell trigger - HVR 700 $200
  • Krieger barrel - SS match grade hand lapped twist rate 1 in 10" contour 14 palma length 26" 300$

    Nice list of components, good to see your not skimping on the optics. Good luck.

    I may be wrong, but, I think you'll need H-S Precision bottom metal to go with that H-S magazine. In their (H-S Pre.) discription they mean their bottom metal is a direct replacment for BDL bottom metal, without modifications to their stocks. Otherwise, looks like it'll be a nice setup!
