First custom rifle

This is an awesome forum! I have been reading posts for a long time and just had my first truly custom rifle built. Thanks to all of you for your great posts on interesting topics.

    What no photos?
    If I had just build my first custom (which I'm in the process of right now) I'd be bragging with a pic heavy thread
