Question Legal Stock?



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a Remington M541X that I've flattened the first 6" of the forend to make it more stable on the front bag. Other mods include recut and crown the original barrel, thread barrel and action, match chamber, locking lugs lapped, pillar bedding, and a the stock trigger has been lighted to 6 oz. (and is absolutely safe). While the rifle is really not stock anymore it's far from a true bench rifle and seems to comply with the rules except for the reshaped original stock. Would this rifle qualify for the SSB varmint class?

Thanks,

PWNolan

You have a 6 oz trigger pull, and you say it's safe? That would scare the Heck out of me....

Then you'd really better stay away from the 2 oz. ones, and there are plenty of safe 2 oz. triggers out there.

FallRun, keep in mind that this rifle has the single shot adapter and is only used to punch paper. A round is only chambered when the muzzle is pointed at the target. I would not consider it safe if I was taking it out in the field and hunting with the gun. Since I received the rifle back from the gunsmith I have done all the traditional tests to check if the trigger is safe. In fact, the third time that I dropped the butt of the gun on the concrete garage floor it hit so hard I thought that might have cracked the stock. However, everything's ok.

Thanks,

Pat

I would never have thought a 6 oz trigger would pass the "Bump Test" I guess you really can learn something new every day.

No one has voted as to whether or not the stock is legal, I'll put my vote in. I vote that there is no reason why it wouldn't be. Sounds to me like a perfect example of a "superstock".

We like photos.
