Looks good, how does it shoot?
She is rock solid so far-- so far, about 400 rounds through her with no failures.

I have actually shot 1.5 MOA with her, but here is the most recent range results using 168 FGMM, only 1.8 MOA--but I think some of that is me.

That is exactly the rifle I am trying to make. Can you let us know how much it weighs, as well as it's folded length?

How do you like the blackfeather?

9.9 Lbs (me and the rifle minus the rifle on my bathroom scale)--so no promises on accuracy of the weight.

28 Inches

Love it, easy to shoot, accurate, very comfortable, easy to store and handle and seems to be tough as nails--time will tell. The only issue I have had is trying to figure out how best to sling and carry it. I keep trying different configurations.

1.8 moa with a eotech? Good shooting. I like the slim look of the blackfeather, your rifle has a very clean look to it.
Oops, sorry for missleading you. That group was shot with the long eye relief scope.

My EOtech groups are usually around 3 inches.

I didn't see the folding mech on the website, where did you get the folder for it?

Also did it come anodized?

I was hoping for these to weight a bit less.
.still 9lbs isn't too bad.

The folder, sight, Vertical Grip, scout rail, even the type of sling swivels all add weight---On thier website, they do have a 8.2 lb rifle, which is doable and usable, but the weight of this rifle is comparable to a standard M1A with a scope.

The folder is made by Hera-Arms and I purchased mine at Lan World---Its Called the Hera-Arms SFU (Side Folding Adaper)

Very simple yet strong---very well made, but does add weight. and it did come anodized black
