Soliciting ideas for a future build for an lrb m25 receiver, and am wondering if people have ideas on what I should do with it.

I will have all of the following, so hoping for something a bit different:

lrb with heavy 22" in walnut
fulton with heavy 22" in McMillan
SAI with medium 20" NY compliant in McMillan
SAI socom in aluminium stock
Armscorp receiver with heavy 18" NY compliant in usgi fiberglass
Fulton in t44 reproduction with heavy 22"

__
In supply, I have 2 heavy SS barrels, a medium 22 criterion stainless barrel, and an 18.5 medium SEI nitrided barrel, plus usgi guts to spare. Not opposed to buying a new barrel, though they are in short supply..

Any ideas and thoughts on build ideas would be appreciated..

I have an M25 with a heavy ss barrel in a JAE chassis. My rifle still holds the 10 dot record after 7 years. Would sure like to see some competition. That would make a great project for you.

Whatta Hobby!

Hmm, I don't think I've seen any pics of this one - can you please post some on this thread?

As to your question, I agree with nf1e, your collection is missing a JAE chassis, so that gets my vote w/ an LRB M25 receiver with integrated scope rail. This is NOT my rifle, but its definitely unique looking w/ a JAE chassis, and well suited for prone shooting with nice optic system.

corrected post. The Armscorp is actually going into fiberglass with shortened heavy barrel. The t44 is the Fulton. Both in finishing stages now. Armscorp on top, Fulton on bottom.

The jae pics are tempting. I am now split between a dedicated bench rest rifle like the jae chassis options or going the route of putting it in a Minelli stock with the warfighter barrel.

I’ll have to sleep on it.

I have a Minelli stock on my LRB. Dianna was kind enough to let me have my pick of the litter. The grain is so pretty you’d think it was on a European double rifle.

JAEs are not necessarily for benchrest only shooting. This LRB M-25 has shot prone for most of it's life including all the shooting for the 10 dot. Whatta Hobby!

As much as I do trust that the JAE’s are tack drivers, I just don’t think it is for me.

Going to bed this receiver in a mcmillan (bought a black from US Collectors Ordinance that I will paint brown) with a heavy satern 22” stainless barrel, with a newly purchased nightforce scope on top. Giddy up!
