    It was a trade-in at a local gunsmiths shop that I had been eyeing for about a year. I don't know who's bbl. it is but it is a true 1/2 MOA gun. I'm not crazy about the muzzle break, but I bought it, didn't build it. Optic is a Schmidt & Bender 3-12 PMII/LP USMC model. Paint is by me and Krylon.
    I got another chuck yesterday evening with this at 354yd. I'm really starting to like this thing. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Used the new Krylon fusion, I think it adheres better to plastics and is a little tougher and more durable.
    Colors were khaki and OD green.
