I finally got this rifle together. I'm curious to see if anyone can guess what model of rifle it is. I'm still waiting on some dies but I've shot about 18 rounds of prime ammo loaded with 142 pointed smk's. Averaging around 3125 fps. The ammo seems fairly hot.

I really didn't do just a whole lot to it. I made a bronze bushing for the rear trigger guard/ action screw so when the screw was tightened that it would tighten against the stock instead of the trigger guard itself. I put a .250 ground recoil lug and NSS barrel nut on it. Bedded it into the stock, adjusted the feed lips on the magazine some. I was able to get the trigger down to around 2.25lbs. Timney makes a trigger for it but I'm just going to leave the factory one there. I did have to inlet the barrel Channel just a little, but not much.
I swapped the bolt head to a mag bolt head.
