280 Ackley Imp. by MCR

I'm just getting ready to ship out another finished rifle. This was a pretty straight forward flip. The customer supplied the stock which was pre-pillar bedded to the action and the bedding was good so no need to re-do. Here's the specs.

Blueprinted Winchester model 70 control round fed
Brux Barrel / 7mm / 1-9 twist / #4 contour / 6 straight flutes / finished at 24"
Tubb Speedlock Fire Control
Scope Base holes opened to 8-40
Other than that some opening up of the barrel channel and some fitting

Hope you enjoy
