Re: Here\'s a review of my crappy Remington

Sakofan, thats all Badger. Good kit. Btw, that stock looks much better in person. Check this out. Left-hand VSF Link It may not be too late to trade up that VS ya got. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Cowboy, thanks for the sympathy. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thanks Abinok. Some of the synthetics out there are too "plastic" for my taste and appreciate a good piece of wood or laminate any day. This is the former Mr Mojo:



Roy, it was windy that day... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Not sure which bipod Remington used cause it wasn't a Harris. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] Don't have CS yet, still stuck with Vs. 7 till we get some remodeling out of the way in the studio. Great ideer though. LOL

CentrePunch, after reading that you wrote [censored], [censored] and [censored], I think we're on the same wave-length. LOL
But to make it clear, it could also mean the ooze deposited from the south end of a north bound goose, etc. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Or it could mean...
The post title is really in jest cause there are some folks who feel that Remington has gone down the drain. That may be true but fortunately I haven't seen those problems yet. It's not custom but it shoots well enough for my budget.
The flutes are radiused and step down from back to front.


Forgot to add in my first post. Like my VS, the rear sling swivel stud (on buttstock, not forend) came loose too easily when the sling got twisted. A few drops of loc-tite takes care of that issue.

For all the Remington haters out there, I leave this bit of humor: [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Have a great day.

Re: Here\'s a review of my crappy Remington

bucknutz, I want to give some ideas to Kirby so he can work up a price for me too. Maybe a 22-250AI or 243AI.
Here's the link for http://www.badgerordnance.com/
I purchased them thru Midway. Here's a Link
Badger may a bit overkill for a factory gun but they do work. Hey, are you on the West side of H-burg?
