Yes , 28 inch GM . Went with a stainless Ruger rail , it’s too short to get the rings far enough apart to put the Wheel on the Mueller 40x56 Target dot scope, so I’m back to the drawing board.

It’s got a JHW bolt and a Brimstone tier 2 , trigger, oversized pins and v block and a take off receiver. Plus A Green Stock.

Pretty darn heavy. Gonna have to buy a front rest, like a Caldwell Rock. Don’t think a bipod attached by a sling stud will last long.

The stock is from eBay , seller , glenlvt, makes them, and sells them on eBay. It’s a little tight. But I will work it out. Looser is easier to fix, but tighter is better.

Thanks! Toomany22s is partially correct. The stock I have was made by me from a mold I took of a stock from Ebay - glenlvt sounds familiar. My stock is hand-laid fiberglass and aluminum. I had wanted to leave the fiberglass clear-coated, but I couldn't get it looking perfect like from a manufacturer after the sanding, so I decided to go ODG. It took way too long to make, but it is crazy stiff and lighter than the laminate wood. The complete rifle with scope, magazine, and bipod weighs 7 pounds 4 ounces. The Volquartsen tensioned CF barrel is pretty darn light as well.

I'm not sure what "Gonna have to buy a front rest, like a Caldwell Rock. Don’t think a bipod attached by a sling stud will last long." even means. This bipod has survived and offered a solid rest in the field for years. Coldwell rests are for the bench...

Also wondering what "It’s a little tight. But I will work it out. Looser is easier to fix, but tighter is better." means...

I saw the words” how heavy “ and went on my way. If he’d had said , how light?

Well, he has a very nice designed stock - the reason for my purchase. I just wanted a glass stock. Otherwise, I would have been perfectly happy with the laminate.
