    I just finished up member JMason's 7mm WSM yesterday. Everything came out great and John was very patient. But here's the breakdown.

    Winchester model 70 WSSM action blueprinted and a single shot follower added.
    Teardrop bolt knob blended into handle
    Spiral fluted bolt
    Action and bolt flutes Duracoated matte black
    Kreiger barrel 1-9 twist #17 contour with a 3 port Muscle Brake
    Timney trigger
    Russo A5 / A3 stock with adjustable cheek piece and decelorator pad
    Pillar bedded and automotive clear coat from MCR
    Ken Farrel 20 moa base and rings
    Sightron 8-32 x 56 with a fine cross hair reticle by Bill Ackerman
    ACI and spirit level

    I'll let John show the proof of the pudding once he takes possession of it.

    Hope you all enjoy !!

    I had a long winded visit with John a couple of months ago, face to face no less. My brothers and sister thought we were nuts.:D

    Great lookin' rig. There won't be a safe piece of paper, chuck, bear or deer in that neck of the woods. (If I shoot it, will you go get it :))

    Slight hijack- is an A5 Joel's or McMillan shoot-able from either side.

    You could shoot it lefty but you wouldn't have the same grip. I'm not positive if you can get them in left handed or not.

    yes, on mine the grip is the same both sides and no cast-off, just the cheekpiece adjustment is one sided.

    loaders_loft,

    Yep, if your's is standard design it'll do. Thanks for the pic.

    The reason I ask is that I have a build coming and I've not seen any of the parts. I picked up all of the major parts and pieces from completely unknown people. But that are all from here.:) And all the parts made it to the rifle smith.

    I like your style! The black on Brown looks real sharp. I like the A3/A5, might have to give one a try next time.

    Roy~

    The A3-5L is an ambi stock as is the A-5L. This particular stock is a combination of the A-3L and the A-5L. I came up with this design a few years ago. It is right hand specific as I put a palm swell on it.

    loaders_loft has the standard A3-5L.


    As usual, another killer build Kevin. Can't wait to see it in person.
