The long grueling wait is over and FedEx finally droped off a 100 + # package. I was gone to lunch and they told me the first thing he said was HELP!!!!! There's not really much to say other than we are both VERY HAPPY w/everything about the gun!! As usual, Kirby's work is impeckable. I'll shutup now and let the pics do the talking!!
Here's the specs:
338 Allen Mag
Lilja 40" 1.75 straight tube pipe 1-10" twist
Bat 10" action
McMillan HBR stock weighted to 25#(30% white,30% grey, 40% black).
Ivey 150MOA adjustable rings
Jewell Trigger set at 5oz
NF NXS 12-42x56mm CH-3 reticle
Here's the package as FedEx delivered it.
Here are the Storm cases opened revealing the contents!! The bbled action was shipped in a seperate case from the stock. Keep in mind these are full size 52" rifle cases!! You could curl the bbled action and get a workout!!
Here's a couple of pics of Kirby's fine bedding work and the lead in the stock.
Me tightening the action screws and Lerch mounting the scope.
A few pics of the rifle fully assembled.
Lerch and I beside the rifle. The damn thing is as tall as I am!!!!
The 5" forearm.
She weighs in @ a feather lite 59.3 # scope and all. We were thinking that she would be about 70# but 60# is plenty!!! As you can see from these pics Lerch and I both ate our Wheaties this morning [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].
