Show us your Ultimate Collection!!!

Hey Gang- thought I’d pop in and try and start a trend. and post a few of the rifles I built here on RFC. To all of you who still have a collection of builds, post them in this thread! It would be cool to stroll down memory lane with y’all.
These are the ones I still own as they are all outstanding shooters and have stood the test of time. A couple were shooters out of the box, although several required multiple (in one case 6) barrel swaps before I was happy.

Here’s a couple . I’ll add more when I get a chance to snap a new picture. Most of my builds center around offhand shooting , but can double as bench rifles . Kirby

Does the scope on that bull pup have a polymer mount? I always wondered how stable those were. Nice collection!!!

Very nice! Said this before- I’ve become kind of a wood snob but if I had a polymer 10-22 stock it’d be that Odyssey w the adjustable comb & LOP. I’ve always thought it’d be really sweet to build a B&C clone from highly figured Walnut or Maple with those adjustable bits added in.

My daughter loves your Tacticool. We already have her next stock- a Barracuda in purple laminate. Her TM receiver/Kidd LW barreled rifle pictured first on my post will be pillar and rear tang bedded into that Barracuda someday when she outgrows the current shortened carbine stock.

Keep em coming, folks!!!

No its aluminum, the side rails are too. It's connected to one half of the stock so it doesn't lose zero when taking it apart.

I have a cheap red dot on it right now without the bull barrel to lower the weight a little but it's so short it really doesn't matter how heavy it is.

Sweet! If I ever did a bullpup build, it’d have to be solid since that style just begs to be run hard, lol. Very cool !!!

DrGunner. I too would love to have a wood version of the Odyssey.
Your daughter would have loved my Tacticool more if she’d seen it with the Pink trimmed Sightron I had on it before .
BTW , those pink Si Sightrons can be found for less than $100 if you search around . Same scope , lower price .
Shooting a rifle with a pink scope doesn’t bother me one bit I have four of them . Kirby

Crazy as this may sound, she doesn't do pink guns. When she was 6 and we went to buy her Crickett, she had a choice between pink and black. The store clerk grinned when he pulled out the pink one thinking it would be love at first sight....
She said, "No Thanks, I want the black one. I dont think REAL guns should look like toys. Someone might make a mistake." She thinks purple is pushing it but the Barracuda has lots of dark gray so shes OK with it. Shes 9 now, and her favorite in the safe is my AR, after that she's learned to appreciate walnut and blued steel.

I was invited to post some guns here. One is not in that photo that I gave to my son. I am currently getting ready to build another. The first one is my most accurate. 24" Douglas barrel, ABRA custom stock, Grand Master receiver, Grand Master 1lb trigger, JWH bolt, Kidd bolt handle, J&L PRX II tuner, built and bedded by Joe Chacon, Weaver T36 fine crosshair with dot.

Here is how that first gun can shoot. That first group was under .100ctc and that 10 shot group was I think .238ctc.

I will show you one more from that gun so some don't say it was only one group. This gun is wicked accurate. That was shot on coraplast and bullets actually blew a bigger hole than what it is. That is why edges of outer bullet holes are so zig zaggy. I measured it twice. Group is probably somewhere in between those numbers.
