    My buddy dave is holding this at his shop for the 10 day wsiting period. Its used and one of his clients ordered it from gunbroker.com.

    Anyhow I thought I'd post some pics of it. It's based on a Remington 700, but not much of that Remmy is left.

    That looks like a heck of a gun. Looks similar to the Mossberg and Ruger precision rifles.

    It just needs a real bipod. That caldwell is hokey.

    I have 4 Caldwell bipods on rifles now that have served me well for over a decade. I'm pretty hard on gear and they've done the job well...

    Not tried Caldwell, Harris has been G2G though.

    AFAICT Caldwell is a copy of Harris, but with plastic parts and thinner metal. I have one on the .22 varminter, but I was sorry I didn't buy a better bipod the first time out.

    When I tried to pre-load it I over stressed the little attachment links and it loosened right up.

    That rifle sure does grab the interest of some people.

    Tell us about the bolts, please.

    Well I really don't have any other data about this rifle, and you guys seem to know more about it than I do.

    We were going to go out and test-fire this gun before it gets delivered to the customer in 5 more days. After all it is used & we need to make sure that it's going to be safe, right?

    But the weather hasn't cooperated and real life has interfered with our gun-toting fantasies.
