    • Action brand, model, coating if any - FN SPR action, pre-64 win style, stock finish
    • Brake brand...or NONE - None
    • Stock brand, model, color - Richards microfit stock, marksman style, walnut. No synthetics for me.
    • Bottom metal - Factory floorplace and internal magazine
    • Cartridge - Either 6.5 Creedemore, or 6.5x47 Lapua
    • Trigger - Tuned factory
    • Scope - Not sure yet
    • Scope base and rings - Warne rings on factory rail.
    • Smith if already chosen - GA Precision
    • Expected weight of rig without scope and mount - Don't know and don't care.

    I'm still a ways out from having all the parts assembled, but if everything goes well I would like to at least have it to the smith in 2009.
