SSG 260 carry rifle







Chambered in 260
Defiance Action
Brux Barrel 1:8twist finished at 26" threaded for a suppressor
HS bottom metal
Shilen trigger set unbelievably light and crisp
Mcmillan HTG adjustable stock
10lbs4ozs as shown

I have chosen a Mark4 6.5-20X50 for this build just to try to keep it around 12lbs.

Re: SSG 260 carry rifle

Are you building a tactical? Only reason I ask is if you have seen Nate's bottom metal? IF you haven't here is a photo





I think it looks pretty sweet, and about the same price as hs bottom metal

Re: SSG 260 carry rifle

Yes, it will be a tactical rifle. I will be shooting tactical matches with it, as well as running a Thunderbeast suppressor. Currently, I shoot a suppressed 308 for the matches.

Thank you for the picture of the bottom metal.

Pistol, if memory serves me, Karl Kampfeld did the fluting. I think Nate isn't quite setup to do it yet, but soon.

Re: SSG 260 carry rifle

A few better pics:






I especially like the thread protector on the end Nate made. It adds that something extra.
