    Hi Folks,

    dont Post here often but here are some pics of a recent pig hunting trip;

    Below is a Pic from when were set up with our Long Range Rigs to ambush some Pigs, we did not get any on this occassion. Rifles were put together by Dave Viers of Viersco Manufactureing. One is a big .375 ST on Lawton 8000 with SB PM11In Near Alpha Mountthe other is a .375/416 Ackley IMP. done on a CZ 550 with NXS 5.5-22x56 NPR2. Daves Work is First Rate !!

    Here is a Boar I shot with trusty AIA M19 B1 Sporter in .308 (these are newly manufactured strengthened Lee Enfeilds with 10 shot mags), the defy convention and shoot really well, and they handle the red dust very well.

    Friend with another pig and with the AIA .308 mentioned above

    Well done mate.
    Interesting rigs to use on pigs. I see you have had gunsmith work done by Dave Viers of Viersco Manufactureing. How would you rate his work?

    What sort of time frame dose it take for him to deliver a rifle from the time the order is placed? Always looking at all options.

    TS It took around 7-8mnths if I recall correctly. Daves work is very good and I will use him again at some stage. He is very good to deal with and helped us a lot in regards to getting us on the right direction with equipment and accesories.

    For close cover a 45/70 with Aimpoint is about the best pig gun you can legally own in Australia i think, from any angle its dynamite.

    The AIA M10 B1 sporter .308 is fast becoming a favourite, I have a NXS 2.5-10x24 NPR2 reticle and this whole rig has been a real suprise packet.

    3 of us all own them and they all shoot great despite the rear locking action etc. Ours were full of that Red Dust and they just kept working.
