Hummm, Q for you Art. Ultra heavy barrel, looks to be a GI fiberglass stock. Did you have to cut a recess for the ultra heavy barrel op rod guide? If yes, any pics of how much material was removed? And was the stock "re-enforced" in any way?
Yep, USGI fiberglass stock. Barrel and op rod guide fit in nicely. I did have to nibble some for the rear lug, but not terrible. Also had to clearance around front ferule as always. Stock was not re-enforced.

just goes to show that homebuilt w/gi stock can shoot w/the best of high $ crowd.
I'm skeptical that there's enough money that would help me keep up with Art, unless I was paying somebody else to shoot it. :p

I suppose that's an option... but given options, I'd rather make a fool of myself and share his company for a range day.

Nice stick Art. That’s some nice shooting considering it’s USGI FG stock not reinforced. That’s kind of a change for you going FG, I’m used to seeing you release your newbies in JAE. You running low on cash? :).
I still want to be you when I grow up Art, and keep me in your will :).

I was asked a question as to why I didn't post the whole target paper. Main reason there were no other holes in it. I only shot the 30 rnds yesterday with that rifle. Easy answer. Whatta Hobby!

Thank you all for the nice replies. I am enjoying the process more every day. Experimenting with USGI fiberglass stocks has proven, to me, that can be reliable and accurate. Whatta Hobby!
