Nice rifle! I like the do-it-yourself attitude. You saved a bundle and lost nothing in real world performance.

Here's a pic of my "SPR". It's an A3 Bushy Govt profile with a Briley FF Tube, Rails, JP trigger/speed hammer, Ergo grip, ARMS 38 S-Ex Swan Sleeve/22Med Rings, YHM front sight, Ashley same plane rear aperture, Smith Comp and a Trijicon TR21 Accupoint.

Here's some 300 yard groups fired from a bipod with 55 grain reloads.

i plan on shooting it.  should be less than a month til i have the funds for the bolt/carrier.

    nice rifle!  i am just finishing one up like it for my varmint rig.  i just need to drill and tap the gas block for set screws and it should be ready.  i'll post pics of that one in a day or two.
