Thanks. .. much appreciated.

Kinda silly maybe, but it took the purchase of a barrel, stock, an early 581 and a late 581-S to make what I had envisioned happen... But, it's mine and will stay that way.

Ran some patches with Kroil on them through the barrel, it cleaned up real nice. Still need to do some more spring swapping in the trigger / sear department.

I had put the Remington 700 open sights on it, but didn't like them, so they came back off and will be getting some plug screws.

AND, still waiting on the scope to show up and of course some tip offs to mount it.

Getting VERY antsy to shoot this darn thing.

Mike

MANY years ago i put 541-S bbls/adjustable triggers on 581 actions and as they are shooters, i kept them in origional stocks. To be honest, i never liked the S stock so it was a no brainer for me...



anyway, they do shoot very well... This one has put a pile of meat in my freezer...

Thanks Tommy... Scope should be in tomorrow, I'm gonna try to grab it and some mounts on my lunch break and get them mated tomorrow evening.

I'm very anxious to shoot this darn thing.

Well... I finally received the scope, went up and bought some Burris high mounts and mounted it on..

I'll have to get some pics maybe tomorrow or Saturday, but still have to change some springs in the trigger to get the pull weight down a few lbs. Then next will be trying to figure out a time and place to do some shooting.. might be a lil tricky considering rifle / deer season starts Saturday.

Any updates on this? I'd love to hear how it shoots.

Just picked up a 541S myself. Maybe I'll start a thread when it arrives. . .

I went and shot this thing today at an indoor range.. Looks like I'm gonna have to get some Burris Z rings..

Not exactly sure what's going on, but it still shoots a bit low at 50 yds and the scope is all out of adjustment, but the good news is it groups pretty darn good with crappy / mediocre ammo.

Anyhow, I took this 541 and my 5mm to an indoor range yesterday.. I'm not a very good shooter, probably don't have very good form and probably have bad habits. However, I am very certain that this gun could shoot EXTREMELY well in the right hands.

The only ammo used was CCI Blazers and CCI standard velocity, I only fired 2 rounds of the standard velocity.

Before I was done shooting, I did realize that the action screw needed tightened / torqued and after I was done, I had realized the darn Burris Tip-offs came loose allowing the scope to slide front to back...

I was extremely irritated, but my own fault.

Also, my target just happened to get used by somebody else before I got it, not that big of a deal though.

I marked the 6 shots that were not mine with a black "X" and mine with a yellow hi-lighter and red circle.. in the group that I had circled, the 2 furthest points were .75"





I'm very certain with a little work and a better operator, this gun will be an Awesome shooter.

I did purchase a nice Snap On torque driver (ouch) and torqued the action into place at 25 in/lbs.. I didn't realize how loose this thing really was until I carefully aligned it and torqued it. but now the mags are easier to install and remove.

I also realized the rings that I'm after are NOT the "Z" rings but are actually Burris signature rim fire / air rifle rings. I want to get the new rings before I torque those to the dovetail and then go and shoot this thing again.

I just chatted with a buddy of mine and he said I could borrow his TIG welder, gonna do some metal mag conversions...!!!
