    Gunsmithing New bubba gunsmithing project?

    Like this? Without modification I don't think it'd work, the Victor Company has some flex but I'm not sure if would flex enough to set correctly over the Monte Carlo-style hump. You could probably trim back the leg on the left side to make it work though, it's only plastic so not too hard...

    Gunsmithing New bubba gunsmithing project?

    The cheek riser is a Victor Company cheek riser. There's enough meat in that part of the stock to embed two 10-32 threaded inserts with JB Weld to secure them along the top of the comb. These ones, I got them from the hardware store. Once I found center line I marked the holes and started...

    Help me ID this SPR barrel

    I've had WOA going back to 2006, that's not how they marked their barrels.

    Help me ID this SPR barrel

    That's what I would do, for what you got in it even if it shoots around 1 MOA it wasn't a bad deal.

    Schmidt Bender

    Definitely check with Jerry at S&B. In the way back when Premier Reticles did custom glass reticles in S&B’s and that reticle looks like it could be one of them. I don‘t know if any of that information survived the turmoil when PR and S&B split ways and then got bought up but he’s your best lead.

    ITW Fast Mag Opinions

    I’ve used both, I was never a fan of their pistol mag carriers because of the way it oriented the magazines bullets out rather than the bullets forward orientation I was used to. I still use their rifle mag carriers for my AR15, they’ve worked very well between USGI, Lancer, and Magpul mags...

    Free float or glass bed barrel

    To remove all doubt I would remove the existing bedding and have it skim bedded with the barrel free floated, then see how it shoots. That way you're starting from a known position, you know the stock is bedded to your action and the barrel if free floated so it rules out anything the previous...

    Help me ID this SPR barrel

    I probably spent longer than I should have looking into this and unfortunately I think it'd be easier to determine who it's not from. It's unlikely that it came from WOA, Wilson Combat, Ballistic Advantage, or one of the other better know makers, they typically put their name and/or logo on the...

    It took some coaxing but the DBM popped free without too much trouble and I spent this evening getting it cleaned up. I laid out the center line for the rail also so that will be on tomorrow night's agenda

    Muzzle brake killing groups

    I've had it happen once with a brake on one of my Remington 700's, it was a cheaper brake from Damage Industries, it was on sale, and I thought how bad could it be? Pretty bad as it turned out, even though it was mounted with shims and light torque, the accuracy was horrible, similar to yours...

    Action Screws for BDL Bottom Metal

    I checked out my set of BDL screws against a 1/4-20 flat head screw and the angle looked to be the same 82 degree taper but like it was mentioned before it has a lower profile and smaller diameter. The BDL head was about 1/8" tall and about 3/8" in diameter whereas the 1/4-20 was a half inch in...
