So last week I came across a Bohica Arms rifle in the new EE. I bought it and received it this week... when I got it, it had a Sightron scope on it. I had a Nikon 6-18X40mm so I decided to swao it out. Today I put 15 rounds through it and once I got it on paper I was able to get 2 really nice groups with some Summit 690 gr Ball. It has a 30" fully floated and fluted barrel and a very nice Jard trigger.







I ended up getting the rifle, 40 rounds of Summit ammo, a whole cleaning kit, and the scope for $2200

That looks like a nice set up.  I hope you get a chance to post some groups and maybe a video of the blast from that brake.

To be more specific use the safety before loading every round on top of all the usual precautions.  Most of the Bohica 'safety' threads here and elsewhere are all mostly BS.

Nice score, BTW.

Nope it's about a 1/2" from it... it's just the angle!

Was that yours with the custom bolt handle 99?

Nice! I'm sure you'll have a great time with her. About how much does it weigh?

It's a Stainless Steel Bohica lower and a Bohica rail with Knight's Armament rail covers on it!...

Very nice!  And a great deal to boot!
Link Posted: 2/27/2010 8:25:53 AM EDT
Its a BOHICA rail, I was trying to keep it as much BOHICA as I could. Upper, lower, stock and handguard are BOHICA made...

I've had mine since Christmas and I love it.  Put a Nightforce 8-32X56 NXS scope on it and I'm shooting API bullets w/218 gr of AA8700 powder in it.  It seems to handle strange ammo just fine.  It's a lot of fun to shoot.  Chris has built a very nice upper that works great.  Just take care of it.

I saw you being very active on the Bohica boards and such.   Just curious as to why you sold?  On to another manufacturer?
Cheers,

I saw it on the EE, thought about it and decided my wife yelling at me wasn't worth it...

Digital Mail scale at work says 25 lbs 11-1/2 ozs

Mine with the 24" barrel and the Nightforce scope weighs 27 lbs.  That is also with the Bushmaster lower and the Magpul PRS stock.

That's a big diference between fluted and non-fluted...

I believe my Nightforce weighs in at 32 oz so that probably makes some difference.
