    what kind of accuracy is the rifle worthy of, shooting the 142smk's or 139 Lapua's? Can u post some pics of targets at X ranges?
    -Pic of rifle would help the sale for you too...Any extra's (recoil lug, bolt handle, any trueing done to rifle action??) trying to help out.

    Good Luck...hope to see how it looks

    Thanks for the the suggestions. It is exactly the way it is described. It was built with an as new action for a "how to article" for a newspaper. With a 40 round (total) shot count the accuaracy with 139gr Lapua was less than 1/2" at 100 yards. I believe it can do a lot better. The trigger is set to 1 lb.I will say the LW barrel is the easiest to clean I have ever used. For pic email me at olsingleshot@gmail.com.

    Email sent with request for pictures. Is there a link available to the article about this rifle? Also, who built the rifle? Thank you for any information you can offer.

    I would love to see the article. You have my email address. It appears you are eager for someone to make an offer on your rifle but with all due respect, you may want to answer some of the original questions from earlier posters. What can you tell us about any action trueing, the recoil lug, lapping, trigger work, or any other work that went into this rifle? Once again please, WHO built the rifle? What specific steps did they take when they built it?

    I have bought and sold quite a few firearms online and can tell you from experience that most people want to see several pics and the details of the build before they will even consider making an offer.

    Respectfully,

    Doug

    Doug,
    The action is factory. The trigger is a Rifle Basix set to 1 lb. The work was done by me. I have built several Savage or Stevens based rifles. As you should know since there has only been 40 rounds through the rifle, true accuracy capability has not been reached. It did shoot less than 1/2 inch groups with 139 grain Lapuas. As stated before it is a like new rifle built with the listed parts and shoots well. I did this for an article so people could see they too could buid a long distance rifle themselves.

    We need to have the old posts locked lightbulb once the items are sold like it is done on Archery Talk!

    It would also help if there was a date limit on the "similar post" llsted at the bottom.
