    Thanks to Preston and the gang at Surgeon! My new stick is near complete, just awaiting an Atlas V8 and TAB sling. In the meantime, here are some pics and specs.

    You might have Federal put a touch more powder in the case, they are only scuffing the paint!

    Just kidding, looks like it's a shooter.

    NICE! I just got my 223 bolt gun from them. ITs a laser out to 500 yards so far.

    Kind of hard to improve on, but that's what I've come to expect as routine from Preston.

    I'll expose a bit of ignorance here....

    What is the purpose of the cover on the can?

    1) It keeps mirage out of your sight picture as the supressor heats up.

    2) With a can mounted, the barrel projection is fairly long. The cover keeps you from dinging it up.
