My buddies named my last rifle "Frankenstein". It is a 788 Remington action that has turned a brown color, stainless barrel, powder coated green scope base and rings, blue/scratched/dinged scope and 788 wood stock that has been reformed, sanded, and painted with Krylon Camo colors with my leaf pattern from trees in the yard. Not pretty but the 25" Stainless 22-250 AI barrel will reach way out there and touch'em. This rifle really shines in the Prairie dog towns and coyote hunting.
