First Custom Rifle

I wanted to make my first post pictures of my new rifle so here it is.

This rifle started off as a Stevens 200 chambered in .243 Winchester. It shot ok out of the box but I wanted better. I contacted Kevin Rayhill of Stockade Stocks to ask about a stock, and well he talked me into a complete rifle build.






Specs
Benchmark Barrel chambered in .243 Ackley 1-8 twist 26” long
PD/Tactical stock adjustable cheek rest, bipod rail, and detachable swivel stud.
Time and trued action
Tactical bold handle
Rifle basix trigger
Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24 X 50 Tactical

Kevin was wonderful to work with and did a superb job on this rifle. The best part was he told me it would take 4 months to complete it was done in 2 months!!

You definitely don't want to call him unless you have an hour to chat.
