CUSTOM H&R in 22lr. MATCH - picture...

This is a picture on an H&R that I fully customized and rebuilt. here is a list of specs on the gun -

The gun itself is an H&R Ultra...

The barrel is a 1.062" diameter stainless steel bull barrel from Green Mountain / 21" in length / chambered in 22 lr. MATCH...

The barrel was made by what I refer to as "barrel stubbing...

The thumbhole stock set is custom made specifically for us. The forend is a 3" wide beavertail model designed for riding the bags...

The trigger has been adjusted to a crisp glass breaking 6 ounces...

The base is a 1-piece Weaver and the rings are Burris Signature Zee Rings that use the nylon inserts...

The scope is a Weaver T-36X target scope...

This gun will consistantly shoot under 1/4" at 50 yards and average 3/4" at 100 yards....

Sir,

the forend is designed to "ride the bags". That piece on the forward edge of the forend is just a block of walnut that I sat under it to take the picture....

I should have been a little clearer in my question. Often a two piece stock rifle will be sensitive to whether the barrel is freefloated or how much pressure is there and how the fore end is attached. While a 22 will not generate a lot of vibration under recoil, I am simply curious as to whether you used the factory method of installing the foreend.

Sir,

I drilled and tapped the barrel for a 1/4-28 screw and the forend is both epoxy and pillar bedded up to the attaching screw with the rest of the forend being free floated...

This gun, like most H&R's do seem to shoot best when the front rest is directly in the center between the receiver and forend mounting screw....

How much money did this cost? Looks nice, sounds like it shoots even nicer!
