My build is now complete...

After having some trouble with my Rifle Basix trigger, I was able to get it to a tolerable level of performance.

My Manners stock finally arrived in two days shy of 16 weeks, I ordered it from Stocky's.

McGowen barrel showed up super fast in just two weeks after I placed the order.

The only thing that needed a major modification was my Badger Ordnance Picatinny rail. I had to cut about an inch and a half off of it, because where it hangs over the action and sits over the barrel nut. With my Burris XTR low scope rings, for me to get the eye relief correct it would touch the end of the rail. So I took a portaband to it and all is well. You can see in the pic where it hangs over.

And my scope is a Vortex 6-24x50 FFP, and the gun is chambered in .300 Win Mag

That Barrel arrived super fast. I was looking at getting a MCGowen, through Savage-barrels, and they told me 10 weeks, did you order yours direct, or through a distributor?

Direct through McGowen. Great people by the way. Two weeks might be stretching the truth some, it's been so long and I had to wait on everything else for a while, but the barrel arrived first, and it wasn't longer than 6 weeks for sure.
