    Wanted to show my two new rifles I had built by a friend of mine plus give him a little plug. Alton Britt, who is owner of Tuf Pak ?Quality Manufacturing Of Industrial Machinery, Part Fabrication, and Custom Automation? and Dixie Precision Rifle Dixie Precision Rifles - Home built both of these for me. Alton is an avid shooter and a master machinist.

    We have a new F-class league that started last year, and he was the first to shoot a perfect score with one of his rifles that he had built himself. Alton can think outside the box when it comes to rifle building. If you can think it, he can probably build it. He is very prompt on his work too! Probably shouldn’t have told you this now- it will make my wait time longer LOL!


    Rifle one: F-class
    Action Bat Sv
    Barrel Brux 6.5 cal 8.7 twist finished 28 Straight tube
    Stock Mccress that Alton had Teflon coated; he also bedded with Devcon steel bed.

    Scope Nightforce 12x42 BR.
    Rings and bases EGW
    Trigger Jewell 2 oz
    Weight with scope 20.5 pounds

    WOW those are two awsome rifles! I don't even know what I'd do with two rifles like that at the same time!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there an 18.15lb-ish weight limit on f-open class rifles?

    Eddybo Haven't shot it yet. I've tried to call you several times. Heard you you had been a bit under the weather and wanted to check on you. Hope you are feeling well.

    Having the benefit of seeing the two rifles in person, I can say they look even sharper than the photos can do justice. I have no doubt that they will be shooters, since I have had to shoot against Alton, the builder for the last 3 years in f-class competitions.

    And talk about a good buddy, Mo said that if I ever draw a sheep tag I can use the light-weight 7 WSM.

    Very nice rigs. How much weight do you think you lost going with the ABS Carbon wrap? I've got a predator on my F-class .308 and been wanting to do a light weight hunting rig with the same action. You nailed it. Keep us posted.....
