S&W 1500 finally on it way back for Coaters

This was a 270 Win that I wanted a little more kick out of and also do some of the build work myself. It ended up turning into my lighter weight long range carry/backpacking rifle.

I sent if up to Lone Wolf Stocks to have a custom Howler Thumb Hole stock fitted to it and while it was there Bob gave it to Jeff down the street to have thier extreem service metal coating put on all the metal. I am really happy how it came out. The scope, rings and bipod have all been painted to match but the Jeff said he would let me put it all together since I need to adjust the scope to myself.



Specs:
S&W (Howa) 1500 Action trued by Pac-Nor
26" #6 Contour Deep Fluted 3 Groove 1:8.5 twist Pac-Nor Barrel
Chambered in 6.5 Gibbs
Timney Trigger Set at 1lb
EGW 20MOA Aluminum Scope Base
Badger Ordnance Aluminum Rings
Leupold 4-14 VX-3 LR with B&C Reticle and Covered Target Turrets
2.5" Sunshade and Leupold Alumina Scope Covers
ACI on Badger Mount
Lone Wolf Howler Stock
DE Check Rest
Harris Swivel Notch Leg 9-13" Bipod
Falcon Extreem Coat

It's on the UPS truck and should be here Monday. I think this is the first time I am looking forward to a monday showing up.
