Another NZ Edge!

Well finally my 338 Edge project is finally finished after 11 months. Ill let the pictures do the talking.

Specs are:

Rem 700 action
McMillan A5 stock
Seekins precision detachable magazine
Jewel trigger
30" Lilja #7 fluted barrel 1:10 twist
DE 1" Muzzle brake
DE bolt release
Trued action and sleeved bolt
Badger ordnance bolt knob
Sako Extractor
EGW 20 MOA rail
Satin Black MilSpec coating

The scope is about 3 weeks away - Nightforce 5.5-22x50 MLR/MilRad with nightforce ultralite rings.









So all going well (ie the cleaning rod and scope turning up) It should be making a bang in 3 weeks.

Great looking gun!!!!!

What caught my attention was the spiked feet on your bipod. What's the story on them?

Re: Another NZ Edge!

I'm interested in the bipod feet too...

I like the stock colors, it looks like traces of blood on it! I'm sure you can't wait to get some real blood on it...
