Is this tapped for a 6-48 screw? I ordered a seekins 30 moa rail off amazon and upon just trying to install it, the screws are too big. They almost fit in the 8/32 hole on my wire strippers so I think they sent the 8-40. Just wanted to verify

I was up in the air about whether to get a steel or CF barrel rifle. I was leaning toward a steel one until I read some posts of guys with the CF rifles. My local dealer had a CF one in stock so I took the decision to buy it. When I got there, he had a steel version also. I bought the CF barreled one after handling both of them. The steel barreled version seemed a lot heavier, way more than what the specs say. I got to go out and shoot it today. I was using Eley Standard, Eley Match Xtra and R50. I loaded 10 rounds of standard up to sight it in and shoot a 5 shot group, then shot a 10 round group with the Match xtra and 10 with the R50. All shots were at 50 yards. There was a little wind that was coming straight in towards me. Pics show the first 30 rounds shot thru this rifle. Me likey.
Nice! Pretty sure I’m going to go with the carbon fiber, just need to get one and start shooting. Thanks for the report.

Paying attention to Facebook (and a little luck) I managed to acquire 3 extra mags.

Gonna stow 2 long term and run 2 for matches.

Not gonna be trying to find mags down the road.
Where on fb are you looking? Was this from a vendor or Bergara?

Got my barreled action and mags a week and a half ago and got it built. Grayboe stock, Timney 517 trigger. I practiced and had some really good coaching that really corrected some stability issues I was having with positional shooting. Shot my new toy in this last Saturday's NRL22 match at my club. I did have some failures to extract on my second stage that cost me some points. I believe I had lead build up in the throat. Scrubbed it after the stage and recovered nicely. I usually finish middle of the pack but managed to take 4th Saturday. This was huge for me, especially considering I outscored 2-3 of the guys I consider "guys to beat" in our group and was by far my best showing since I started shooting NRL22 in November 2018.

These rifles definitely shoot and handle nicely!

Did you have any fitment issues with the Grayboe stock, e.g. trigger, bottom metal, barrel contour? I'm deciding between a Grayboe or an AG Composites Gladius while I wait for my barreled action to come in.

No fit issues with the Grayboe Ridgeback and Seekins bottom metal with the Bergara and Timney 517. Love that stock!

Yoteman, they were in stock at Bergara 2-3 days ago. I hesitated and missed them. You can sign up to be notified when they are in stock. Otherwise good luck, lots of people looking for them.

NewsShooter, well done on the paint job. It is a shame the stock paintjob makes the stock look like some molded plastic thing. A better paint job goes a long way for the rifle, imho.

Got an 18" in today, installed a TT Special flat trigger, slapped it in a Manners T4 I painted awhile back and topped off with a PST II.

I have only function tested it, no extraction or eject issues, plan on zeroing it this weekend sometime.
