    Nice setup! Congratulations.

    I really like the stock, what kind/model is it?

    I like the rings too, what are they?

    The rings are Weaver 30mm Tactial. The stock is an HS-Precision, fully adjustable.

    As per the velocity, I have not measured it. I'm dialing it in for accuracy right now. I'm hoping by the weekend I'll know the exact figures.
