    I realize that this is the wrong spot for this thread, but for some reason I cannot post on the GUN PICS forum.

    I dunno if I could call this a build or not.

    I built it off of a stevens 200 action

    It has:

    Choate Tactical Stock
    CDI drop mag system
    Comp Recoil lug
    Select Match Shilen Barrel .223 1:8
    EG 20MOA base
    Millett TRS-1 (might switch to my Vortex Viper)
    Some Paint :cool:

    Im probably leaving some stuff out, but oh well....... Had lots of fun putting it together

    Have not got a change to shoot it yet. Got some 75gr A-Max ready to hit the range (which is closed for maintence.

    This first build rifle looks great. You have good taste! I am actually wanting to do the same build but in .300WM. I need a Stevens/Savage action and the stock, then I'll be good to go. I bought the extra barrel to swap onto my Savage 110 FP but I think I'll just build a second rifle. You did a great job and I hope to have one just like it here soon.

    I may have to PM you with some questions. :)
