    Hey Kirby,

    Could you please give all of us who are following your New Raptor, an update on your progress. Things have been quiet for a while now? How much does the final version weight with a NF Scope? Any way to get the weight down to say 10 Ibs? Thanks!

    He's around....... he just posted some pics of a cute little blonde on a 4wheeler in general discussion thread. (Daughter or Neice or maybe even Granddaughter) I dont know how old Kirby is. But Id defintely like to see the progress in the Raptor action. Ive seen some older pics, and it looks STOUT for dang sure.

    I bet Kirby is putting together a raffle for his very first Raptor and we are all automatically entered because we've shown so much interest in this project! lightbulb

    My your optomistic.:D Fun thought to entertain, but HIGHLY UNLIKELY.
    Kirby does have a knack for making some of the finest precision shooting products known to man, and has a clientel that is probably more demanding of exelence than the NASA rocket science folks. He's earned his reputation. What ever he's cookin is gonna be worth the wait.
    Last I hered on the Raptor, his supplier couldnt meet his demands and Kirby was looking for a new supplier, But He had some sort of Rifle put togather on the Raptor action prototype.
    Am I up to speed so far, or have I missed something along the way? Somebody fill me in.

    :rolleyes:None of the above! His nose is to two grind stones. Being a good hubby and dad and dedicating his working time getting 'my' rifle ready.:D Not a raptor tho:rolleyes:

    I can't remember? Something about 3-six bits with a paint can for a case?
