FN Mauser 98 action (an antique by mosts standards but a good action and the best 98 Mauser IMHO)
Kreiger #3 sporter .284 1:9 (premium barrel maker, #3 sporter describes the contour or outside dimentions, caliber .284, twist 1:9 I chose this twist cuz I plan on shooting heavy for claiber bullets)
.280 Ackley Improved chambered with PT&G bushing type reamer (the real deal, not the SAAMI Nosler/Rem spec'd cartridge that is .014" shorter than the original) The original .280 Ackley Improved and the .280 AI as spec'd by Nosler when the cartridge was standardized by SAAMI is .014" shorter than the original P.O. Ackley cartridge. Why, I don't know, but .014 is that much more powder I can squeeze in there.
Timney Featherweight (aftermarket adjustable trigger)
Tubbs Speedloc (aftermarket firing pin and spring combo that decreases lock time or the time between when the trigger breaks and when the round is detonated)
Cerakote (a ceramic bake on finish that is corosion and abrasion resistant)
B&C Medalist Varmint stock in green w/black spiderweb (aftermarket carbon fiber stock with integral aluminum bedding block)
I am not a gunsmith but I do as much for myself as I'm capable of. I had a smith do the machine work on the barrel-threading, crowning, and headspace. I installed the trigger, firing pin/spring, and wiht help from a friend applied the cerakote.
