Photos are here

What a nice piece of work. Arrived well protected in a good sturdy box, no tool marks, bolt raceway is slippery smooth, well put together. MUCH bigger than I expected. Hopefully in between the kids bb games this weekend I can break out the 30mm lapping bar, and inch lb torque wrench, get the scope mounted and get yall a few more snaps before I take it in the back yard and start shooting.

if you don't mind me asking. sounds like you got her straight from factory? how long did it take to get in and what was your final price? what glass are you putting on?

Congrats dude!

BGA will allow you to order straight from the factory. I did all the research on line and by phone with those guys, they are great to deal with. I sent my funds and a copy of my recieving ffl. My gun took a while longer than norm. 1 it is LH. 2 they were really hustling to get a bunch of CA stuff out to meet the deadline. Mine took 19 weeks. In the process they kept me informed.
If I remember the cost of the Viper and shipping was $2325 shipped. That is a bargain. For now the gun will wear a Leupold M1 3.5-10. I m sure it will hold up, I don't think it is enough magnification for the longer ranges. It will be held up by a pair of Burris xtreme tactical rings. 6 screw, 1 in high beefy mounts. These were also a compromise at the time of purchase Badger was elusive. But I do not think they will have any issues. They are stout. Hopefully a range report later this week, as soon as I can drag her into the backyard to put a few down the pipe.

Nice Rifle.
You know, I took the foam from my box and had a local carpenter make me a wood crate around it.
It has served me very well and kept the rifle very well protected. I think anybody who is handy could do the same thing!

Hey Im no tease. Sorry for the delay, my little black cloud and goofy preplanning has slowed me down. My nephew has been in the icu for a while now after a perffed appendix. He is on a rough ride at the moment and Im trying to help his family the best I can.
My lack of figuring out what I needed to maintain this girl didnt help. Had to order some new cleaning stuff. Tom Miller from biggerhammer and Paul & Ramona Harlow at aaa ammo have been super working w/ me to get the stuff I need. Hopefully in the next week Ill have a report for yall. Sorry to string ya along. db

Nice piece of metal there. uhm-Richmond, KY is only 40 minutes from me. $2,325?? Income tax check on the way....uhmmm...You go me thinking now blusmoke...My wife is going to hate me..
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:55:51 AM EDT
Hate her back and do it. Give those guys a call Gary and Jeff are pretty good to deal with. The only obltical you might run into is sales tax. Still might be cheaper to have it delivered. Just a thought. Good luck. db

I vote you go and cherry pick your piece in person. While you are there try to get a sneak peek of the semi-auto prototype. Better yet, sneak some photos of it.
