Should be here next week sometime. I'll be using the factory Rynite Stock for now, but may bump-up to some better grade wood in a couple of months.

We'll see how it shoots and if I can turn it into a light, walk-around rifle for varmints!

Eric, you are going to love the barrel. If I ever figure out how to put a pic on here I will show the Bishop blank I finally finished for the 5mm bbl. Had it for 25 yrs. and finally finished it last year. The wife got me the Custom Shop thumb-hole butt stock for Christmas last year, it's the best stock for bench shooting I've ever had. For hunting though, it wears a rynite. If you shoot the 24 grainers let me know how they shoot. Luck and Happy New Year. Bob T.

I got the barrel and installed it on a factory Rynite Stock. The size is perfect and it balances nicely. I just need to add a scope and I'll be set!

Here are some pictures of the package and the rifle after it was put together.

I'll put together a report once I get it out in the field!

Looking at these pics makes me want another one. I'll be waiting for trophy pics now. Bob T.

Sure Hank!

It's Ed's Contenders - 405-879-0879 - EDSTC.com

He had a few left when I spoke with him. I also got the Weaver scope mount for the barrel, which is very low and should work well with some medium rings.
