My First Build: In details

Gentlemen,

I decided to chronicle my first precision rifle build on a blog that I started just a couple weeks ago.

If anyone is interested, please check out 'Part 1' at the link below. I have my first three installments out with more to come as the build progresses.

Take Care,

Dave

Re: My First Build: In details

For those that are interested I have just posted 'Part 4' of this series.

It starts like this:

Quote:



Thank you to everyone who has been following this series, your loyalty makes me smile

In this week’s post, I’ll cover a few of the ‘small’ (not necessarily cheap!) pieces of the puzzle that wrap up the component selection for the rifle itself: trigger, muzzle break, bipod, and some accessories. Then I’ll share a few photos of the build ‘mocked’ together so you can get a feel for the final product.

But first, a few links to the prior pieces for those that are joining us late.

Part 1: Rifle Purpose, Platform choice: Stiller Action

Part 2: Barrel Caliber and Reamer Selection: Brux Barrels, 6.5 Creedmoor, Reamer Specs

Part 3: Stock/Chassis Selection: Manners T4-A Stock with Mini-Chassis and Paint

Alrighty folks, I’m sure your getting antsy, as I am, so onward we go!

TRIGGER SELECTION

Along with your rifle stock/chassis and optics, your trigger selection and setup will be your direct line of interaction with the rifle. The trigger is the happy switch, the piece of the puzzle that makes the magic happen, and an integral part of your platform. There is no other piece of equipment that can so quickly ruin your accuracy potential than your trigger, so care must be taken in selecting it and tuning it for the role you need it to fit.

Thank You Sir.

I just got the call that the rifle is complete and getting boxed up at the gunsmith.

I guess I need to get together my next post detailing the builder and build option as well as optics. Because this thing will be here next week and It'll be old news by then. I won't want to write, I'll want to shoot!!!
