New F-Class Rifle

Decided to build a fancy rifle that was a little out of the normal for me...no camo, od, flat colors. Plus I needed something to try out the new prototype Phoenix Machine receiver with 1pc bolt. So far, it is proving to be very accurate. I will test it out some more at the match next weekend. Anyway, here are the specs and pictures.

Phoenix Machine Falcon Receiver
31" Broughton F-Class Contour 1-8 twist
McMillan F-Class Stock
Jewell Trigger
Seekins base and lug
NF 12-42x56 Benchrest
6x47 Lapua...105's at 3250fps..still working up

TMR,

That pic reveals some serious attitude towards LR shooting.

Keep us posted on how your shoot goes.

I like the lines on the stock. One of the better Mc. designs except for the forearm width for shooting on a bipod. I'm in the process of stock selection for a build.

Re: New F-Class Rifle

Thanks guys. Pretty happy with the way it turned out. I almost coated it in matte black to be another "mini black sunshine", but thought this would be ok for it designed uses.

Roy,

The stock is pretty comfortable. It has a slightly different feeling grip than the "A" series stocks. It it had the A-5 forend, I think it would make a great long range hunting stock. Although, I am finding that it is hard to beat the Manners T-2 stocks I have been building on. I will keep you guys posted on the shoot. So far, 100-300 yds is pretty much 1 hole groups if I keep my head together.

Joel,

I can't change everything that quickly.....Thought about painting the rest gloss black though just to fit in with the rifle.

That's a great looking rifle. I hope it takes home a lot of fake wood and plastic.

I myself have a 6X47 in the works. Surgeon target action, Broughton F-class barrel, Jewell trigger, Manners T2 stock and topped off with a NF 8-32X56 benchrest scope. You actually influenced me to try the Manners stocks with your 338 Edge twins post a while back. I got 2 of the T2's from Tom, they look and feel great.
