west by god virginia
i have several k31s and love them, but i cant use the irons very well in low light so hunting with them isnt as easy as i would like it and i dont care for shooting paper.i thought about drilling a scope mount and paying 400$. i have a scout mount but for a good red dot or ler i will have to pay close to the same as my tapped mount.
i want to build a rifle chambered for 7.5x55
i have no idea where to start. i have a budget of 1000$ just for the rifle with no scope.
i need a stock an action a trigger a barrel and whatever else falls in between. if it were your rifle how would you build it?
