Re: 270 AM in A5

The reason I asked about the color is it looked close to what I wanted but somehow it is showing up on my screen a little more red than the orange one they have on thier website. I suspect it is just a matter of all the computer chips the picture has been throough by the time I see it.

Any way, it looks very nice.

Re: 270 AM in A5

The rifle is built on a Savage 110 pre accutrigger. It has a 30" 1-8" twist 3 groove Lilja HV contour bbl. The break is a Holland QD. The trigger is a Rifle Basix which Kirby tuned to a crisp 8 oz. It has a Near Mfg 20 MOA base bedded to the receiver w/a 8.5-25x50mm Leupold Mark 4 locked into a set of Mark 4 rings.

I already know Kirby does great work. This thing had no trouble busting milk jugs @ 950 yds w/the old stock on it and it wasn't worth a darn off of bags. Either this gun or Lerch's or both will have a 1500 yd pdog by March!!! Mark my words on that. Just have to wait till after the holidays and find a weekend when the weather will cooperate!!!

Just for kicks, here's the gun with the old stock.

Re: 270 AM in A5

Bill Bailey,
My question is, did you not have to glass bed the action to the stock and fit it all over? did you just drop it in?
Will it shoot as good as the one Kirby had fitted for you? Just things I need to know. Thanks in advanced.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
