Here's my latest prairie dog rig--Neallum-stocked 225 Win. 8 twist McGowen on the Svg. Tgt. Action/Unertl BV-20 with TK Lee 3 MOA 0.125"dots reticle--

Good looking set up man, how do you like the mcgowan barrel I've got one ordered for mine just curious as to how it shoots. I had one on a 338 edge and it shot lights out.

what's the barrel length on it.

Thanks for the pics man,
Years ago when I had an FFL, there was a Federal law against building a pistol on an existing rifle action.
When Remington made the XP100, Remington designed a new action specifically for the XP100. This was a legal loophole.
A few years later, if I'm recalling correctly, Remington built a rifle on this same action which was completely legal according to the law. If memory still serves me correctly, it was chambered for the 6.5mm Remington Magnum.
There wasn't any law against building a rifle on an existing pistol action, at least at that time there wasn't.
So now I have to conclude, either there are laws being broken or the laws have changed since I had my FFL.
