I appreciate the offer, but I don't want to cause any problems for either of us.

I'm sure I can find a 541/581 set and modify. The pictures are a HUGE help as they show exactly how much I have to...

I tried the parts for the 541 and they almost fit. I'll try and source them in Canada before I try the US for parts.

As you mentioned, the ejector nubbin has to come of, as well as widening of...

Thank you Sir!

I posted the above when I was in the city for a couple days and didn't have my 541 handy. I'm now out at my rural place with the 591 and 541's and can tinker and test. I'm going to...

Does a 541/581 magazine guide and latch work on a 591?

Since I've been able to acquire some 5mm ammo, I wanted to take it out and shoot it, but....I misplaced the magazine guide and spring for my 591 when I took it apart to explore a CF conversion about...

Mine loves Hornady 20gr and shoots the 15.5 well too. I'd only shoot the 15.5 if your state law says you must, otherwise it's a ballistic dog.

The correct way to spec the dovetail is by measuring with two pins of the same diameter, unfortunately my 527's have DIP rails and I can't do this for you. Perhaps someone can do it??

I've got some 15.5 factory stuff and was all excited about the speed till I ran the ballistics on it.

I seem to remember that at about 80 yards the 20's are at the same speed and anything past...

I've broken down ammo that didn't fire and saw the same thing with no priming compound in the rim. Further investigation showed that the rifle was giving a weak enough hit that it wouldn't ignite,...

Paul Mole did the underweighted 22 mag conversions. At the time, I saw how he did it and did one of my own, it actually worked. I still have almost all of the components for it. Shortly after I did...

I know 69's work with 1-9, but I haven't tried 77's, this was in a 527 Ebony BTW.

I'll check the balance point on the MTR when I get home later.

I've got one in 6.5 Grendel and I love it. Even as a lefty, the stock is usable, it would be great for a right handed shooter. As the literature states, it is NOT a set trigger like all the other...

Firstly, I'm in Canada....

I found a NIB .22LR and it is a sweet shooter, I put a Williams peep on it and took the ladder sight off.

I then scored a 17HMR which up here seemed like a very rare...

I've got one in 6.5 Grendel, it's a great shooter! I've seen the .223 ones up here for sale, but not a .222. It's too bad the .223 version didn't have a 1-8 or even 1-7 twist. It's a bit limited for...

Thanks for posting, I'm planning on doing some weighting mods on mine. What is tungsten like to machine? Do you need ceramic or diamond tooling?

I've got a 16" and 20.5" MTR and they are both threaded 1/2-20 with nice factory knurled caps. I have a 6.5 Grendel MTR and it is threaded too, but I think it's metric.

I don't have pics handy but I did five, 5 shot groups with a 16" and a 20.5" MTR at 50 yards, bipod and rear bag only. The first four groups were with Std Plus and the last Centre X.

I got one of the last barrels they had in stock about two years ago. I've put it on a 455 Varmint, but I need to bed it. The odd thing is it when I shoot the 15.5 gr NTX load, the bullets tumble. I'm...
