    So today I took my extended centerfeed magazine and my muscle brake to my gunsmith so he can finish my 338 lapua. I walked around the corner to see it sitting there chambered and threaded together with a big fat Tubb recoul lug in the middle and screwed to my greybull precision stock. my PT&G bolt hasnt been put together yet so i dont know what it looks like in there but it was the first time I have seen it all together as basically one piece. I love it. I dont have great pictures cause all i had was my phone and the lighting was bad but here it is so far... in all its unfinished glory.

    Also notice the stainless bar looking thing on the table between the 2 cans of solvent and the gun cradle in the 1st pic. That is a silencer for a .308 win not mine its pretty awesome though

    When I read the title of your post thought you were going to say you walked around the corner and saw the gunshop had been burnt to the ground! You would definetly had been allowed to cry then.

    Nice looking rifle so far.
