Eliseo Tube Gun Build

Pretty excited about my Eliseo Tube Chassis that is in production right now. So excited, that I decided to write about it...since all i can do right now is wait for my build number to come up!!!

I have a Tikka T3 in 7mm-08 Rem. I have always been the kind of guy to be satisfied with stock guns. Do my research and buy a gun that is great out of the box. After having this and another T3 in .243 for a little over a year now, I decided that I couldn't resist the urge anymore, and I decided to go full force with a massive overhaul of my T3 in 7mm-08.

My current T3 set up has the basic, blued sporter barrel, which I notice is not very good after 3 shots with POI changing almost 1.5", so I knew I wanted to get a bull barrel. In researching which barrel I was going to buy, I came across the Proof Research folks and was sold on their scientific approach. But in ogling their awesome website (Proof Research | We Give You Proof | Homepage : proofresearch.com) I saw this awesome tube gun they sell. That was the first time I had heard the name Eliseo, so I looked it up (thanks Mr. Google).

Gary Eliseo also has a great website (Got X Ring). I knew it was meant to be when the first post on his site was fir his newly announced tube chassis built specifically for the Tikka T3!!! I ordered one later that week. Gary has been great to work with and the price was right!

So here is the build specs:
  • Tikka T3 in 7mm-08 Rem
  • Tikka adjustable trigger (love this trigger and won't be upgraidng this)
  • Gary Eliseo Light Weight Hunter Chassis in Flat Dark Earth
  • Proof Research Bull Barrel
  • Nightforce 20MOA unimount
  • Vortex ViperHS 4-16x44 scope
    I already had this on the Tikka...love this scope, and with the cash I am forking over for the chassis and barrel, this will be the scope for quite some time. I also happen to love the Vortex scopes, so any upgrade will be to another Vortex (higher power)
  • Sierra Precision SPR handgrip
  • Mako Group GL ShockCP Adjustable stock (also in flat dark earth)
  • Accuracy International 5-round Mag

I am still looking for a smith who is willing to finish off the Proof barrel for me. Everyone I have talked to so far has said they don't feel comfortable handling the CF. There are still several weeks before the chassis and barrel arrive, so I have time to find the right guy.

Re: Eliseo Tube Gun Build

I think you will enjoy your Proof Research Barrel I have done a number of them and they have all been pretty consistant shooters.

Good Luck With Your Project

Re: Eliseo Tube Gun Build

So I am now finding that it is hard to find a smith who will finish off the Proof barrel. Anyone know of someone in or near the Bay Area, CA who would take this on?

Re: Eliseo Tube Gun Build

Riddle me this Bat Man, what made you choose the 7mm-08? Have you had the doughnut problem that I have read about?

Chose 7mm-08 for the BC. I have 7mm-08 brass so I am not resizing. I think the donut is only a problem when necking up...it's not something I've ever dealt with.
