    Smithed by Carolina Precision
    31" Schneider stainless barrel with a 2" brake, black coated
    Myers Trigger
    Bell & Carlson Stock
    Talley Rings
    Leupold VX-3 Longrange Scope 6.5-20 X 50 fine duplex with target knobs
    Redding Dies
    70 rounds of loaded Lapua Brass, plus 4 rounds empty
    1 Box of 50 unused Nosler Accubond 225gr bullets
    1 box of 100 unused Hornady Interlock 225gr bullets
    1 partial box 50 Sierra Match King 300gr bullets

    Approx 350 rounds down the tube. Best grouping load was using 92gr Retumbo with 300gr Match Kings, Ave. Velocity= 2749fps, SD= 14.4fps, 3.835" OAL. I have not fired the gun in a couple of years due to interest in handguns now. I am selling to help fund a custom handgun project.
    I would like to get $1600 for the entire rig. I can send plenty more pics to anyone who is interested. Please send me an e-mail to cwood389@hotmail.com

    I posted some pics for you guys further down in this thread.

    My kind of gun. One of a kind. What a wonderful project it must have been. It would make a great grizzly bear or moose rifle for sure. I hope somebody on the forum buys it and kills something.

    How very interesting that Carolina Precision understands how to cure the eye relief problem with a Ruger #1.



    Now then, lets see a picture of the Lightning with the tires smoking. :D

    Thank you for the comments Buffalobob. I could post a few pics of my Lightning but I don't think it would be appropriate on this site...lol. Like most of my guns, my Lightning is custom, making 598HP at the rear tires!! Smoking the tires is an understatement.:eek:
