I did things a little differently than most. First I ordered an action only from a gunsmith. And I had him do the trigger job before he sent the action to me-So that saved me some money. Bellm did that particular trigger job, and he did a fantastic job. I had about $400 in the action(including trigger job).
I then odered the stock from EABCO. I got the stock and forend for about $160.
The barrel is a full bull, MGM 28" barrel. I think I paid about $325 for the barrel. + another $100(??) to have it ported by MGM.
The bases and rings are Warne. I think I have about $40 or $50 in them.
The scope is a Zeiss Conquest 6.5X20 with the Mil Dot. I think I have about $800 in the scope.
This is a little more than the author said he wanted to spend. However I have seen several Encores in a factory configuration for $500 to $600. I think the Pro Hunter is over priced. I have a drastically superior rifle over the Pro Hunter for about the same price. Tom.
