Re: J107 Eberlestock dragon fly

J107 Eberlestock dragon fly at the LRH Store.

My brother has the hunting version of the J107 and his Tikka T3 in 300WM with a Leupold MK4 6.5-20 and a harris bipod fits in the scabbard. Snug but it fits.

What do you lose in the J107M to make room for the larger scabbard? Do you lose the place for the 3 liter water bladder that is opposite the scabbard on the hunting version??

I might be wrong but i dont think you lose anything in my blue widow i have everything the j107 hunting version has and have lost nothing its just a bigger opening.

Re: J107 Eberlestock dragon fly

The bottom of the scabbard on the J107M is wider than the hunting version so you can carry your rifle butt down if you want.

On both versions there is a vertical pocket sewn into the scabbard that you can access from the side of the scabbard through a long zipper. If you look at the scabbard from the top - the pocket takes up one side of the scabbard and the other side is open for your gun. The pocket is narrower on the J107M so there's more space available for your rifle. That's the only difference.

Jeff,

What is making it "snug"? The Harris bi-pod or the scope? The bi-pod can obviously be removed for packing; not the scope.

Re: J107 Eberlestock dragon fly

Jeff,

I had a problem with my Photobucket the other day and could not post some pics that may be helpful.

Rem 700 with 26" barrel and Mk 4 4.5-14 in a J107.





Shows height of turrets on rifle.



NF 5.5-22x50 on in conjunction with AICS stock; about 10" tall from top of turret to bottom of pistol grip, IIRC.



I can carry the rifle muzzle up or down in my Gunslinger II.



The GSII scabbard is cavernous!



Alan
