    Thank You Sir.

    I just got the call that the rifle is complete and getting boxed up at the gunsmith.

    I guess I need to get together my next post detailing the builder and build option as well as optics. Because this thing will be here next week and It'll be old news by then. I won't want to write, I'll want to shoot!!!

    The rifle build is finally complete, and I was greeted to a gun case on my doorstep Saturday with a return address of LongRifles, Inc.

    CHECK OUT THE PHOTO GALLERY HERE.

    To say that the care in packaging taken by the folks at LRI was superb and left nothing to chance, would still be an understatement. Every piece, down to each piece of the scope rings, was in a ziplock plastic bag, inside a sealed paper bag, and wrapped in at least twice as much bubble wrap as would get the job down. The case itself was sealed with duct tape and had a zip tie through each of the 6 hasps for locks. Needless to say, everything arrived to perfect condition. The 2-day shipping was a bonus too!

    And thanks to everyone who has come across from The Hide and elsewhere to follow along, you guys have helped me with this build immensely. Thank You to Chad and company at LongRifles, Inc., Brendan at Custom Gun Coatings, Tom at Manner’s Stocks, Scott at Liberty Optics, Greg at Southern Precision, Eric at EuroOptic, and everyone else that built or sold me a piece of this build, and to the anonymous forum members whose opinions and reviews helped shape this build.

    Thanks for following along as well!
