Picked this up last week and it is nothing short of perfection. Has only 20 rounds through it shot by the previous owner. I wanted to love it, but I can’t get comfortable behind traditional style stocks. I run chassis for everything, and I really don’t want to break this apart as everything was bedded and cut perfectly.

Specs:
Defiance Rebel - integral lug option added - nitrided bolt
Hawkins Hybrid 34mm rings
Hawk Hill Marksman 24” barrel threaded 5/8”-24 - 260 rem match chamber
APA gen 1 brake contoured to barrel
Manners EH1A scorched earth
APA m5 DBM

Spartan Precision did all the work Including pillar and glass bedding stock, blending brake, bronze cerakote with black highlights on dbm.

Again, only 20rds through it. As with all builds by Marcus Spartan Precision Rifles, it will be a hammer. With a bipod it is right at 10lbs 10oz

asking $1900 shipped

I’m a die hard traditional stock fan but after building a 22 creedmoor on a MDT chassis I’m convinced they’re a worthy investment. That chassis just welds off everything I shoot off especially the deck posts trying to rid my hen house raiders stinkin fox! And I can collapse the stock to fit my six year old perfectly. It also got me hooked on detachable magazines which I thought were ugly but man are they handy!!! I still like the looks of a traditional stock better now that my 6 creedmoor has a 10 round mag on it!!!!

You can’t argue with the looks of the stocks, especially the carbon fiber manners! But you are 100% right. Adjustability of the chassis’ just make them mold to your body.

This rifle has been paid for. Sorry everyone looking at seconds.

I just bought a Defiance barreled action on here and can say the action is awesome! Coldfinger, I know you love your 6 Creedmoor as much as I do! Great round. I'm having the Barrel rechambered for it. Will make my 4th in that round!

Yes that 6 creedmoor is my favorite cartridge! I’m not sure the 22 creedmoor will ever replace my 22-250 but I can’t wait to try the 85.5 Berger hybrids on a deer!

Forefinger, I believe they will put the deer DRT! Just like with any cartridge, gotta hit the right spot to do that.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
