Rifles are like women - you need to look around every now and again just to appreciate what you've already got :D

Nice one Tomaz , Hope you have fun with it. I finally received a reply from the gun shop that I have ordered from ,they tell me it take about 3 to 4 months for the barrel to be made which is another 1 month plus postage, I have also ordered the ziess 2.8 -20 x 56 scope which is also another 3weeks away.
Cheers
Steve

That's a great photo, who took that ? :lol: :lol: :lol: come on the kick wasn't to bad no different than mine :lol: :lol: Nah guys it's a very well made barrel and it's got a good weight to it. Stock will need a bit of a touch up in one spot as there will be a bit of pressure there, but shot very well with the factory Ammo. Once a brake is fitted will be a lot better to shoot. Six months isn't that bad try 2 years :lol: :lol: :lol:
