Thanks guys!

I really didn't want to buy just yet, but they are hard to come by and a deal I couldn't pass up arose.

 

I still have to get a base, rings, and glass. Those will have to wait while I replenish my bank account. I probably won't have a chance to shoot it until December, but that still gives me more than enough time to break it in and get ready for next year's Armory shoot. :D:

Mr. Longhair,

 

I'd like to take this opportunity to politely suggest to you, that you, Sir, inhale with great vigor.

:thumb: I like Randy's stocks. I have an MBA1 on my 20" AR, and I'm nothing if not impressed with it, so it was one of the added selling points when I was comparing guns to buy. The glass smooth 1500 action was another, and the H.A.C.T. trigger was yet another.

I don't want to puff up too much. I'm pretty sure that most any gun can shoot better than I can. Anymore I just try not to embarrass myself too much.

:speedbanana: FedEx tracking says it will be here tomorrow!

The Burris one piece steel 25 MOA base I ordered should be here by the weekend.

 

Now I need to decide what glass and rings I'll get to perch on it. :hmm:

The rifle showed up, as did the base. I have to send the base back now because it's the wrong one. :124:

I already tore into the HACT trigger because it didn't adjust down enough to satisfy me. After a little modification it now breaks @ about 23oz, and I can live with that.

Another thing that came as a surprise, was that there was a kit included to change from the AICS mag to a regular trapdoor floorplate & follower. I guess that it may be for people in states where there is a regulation regarding hunting with a detachable mag? :dontknow:

It would be a lot sweeter if I didn't have to send that base back. :lol: That's going to set me back another week.

Anyone here want/need a 25MOA one-piece steel base for a Remmy long action?

Base came a while back, so it's mounted. Today the two 3-slot MLOK rail sections and VLTOR TangoDown bipod showed up.

Slowly but surely it's all coming together. Next month comes the glass & rings. :broke:
