extra lithgow 101a machine test range info at 50m



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi All Here's the information that I have plus the pics, the rifle in held in a milling machine vice with timber in the jaws, yes it looks like a bubba job but it seems to work, there's a crony to measure the velocity of every shot, and if you look down range you will see the guy standing in front of the target, please excuse the pics small size but due to space limitations, ,you will see the small range wind flags on the left and these were dead still for all testing.
The rifle has been bedded and the trigger lightened to 500gms and a screw has been installed to reduce the creep rather that stoning it. the barrel was a pacnor heavy varmint profile supermatch barrel which was machined down to Anschutz 1710 profile and a clymer 22lr match reamer was used to cut the chamber.
During testing I didn't touch the rifle at all except the trigger and bolt handle as once when I fired it and rested a finger on the butt stock I felt the vibration and noticed the shot go astray out of the group, I fired a total of 5 batches of eley match and the slowest speed of 1053fps shot the best.....as you can see from my picture above in my earlier post of the group.
Another ammo tested was RWS R50 it shot very well also but had more vertical dispersion, and eley tenex had slightly more horizontal dispersion. I am talking about less that a 1/16 of an inch in both cases but eley match shot the best for the $$$ I did try Lapua XACT but groups were around .4 and at $40 a box here in Australia and eley match at $21 I know what I prefer.
Yes I almost forgot, the range officer who ran the computer during testing and who handed me the ammo said that the plastic stocked 101a's never shot as well as the laminated stock versions and before bedding in epoxy mine would change it's POI from week to week but since it's been bedded it's now quite stable.

"Lithgow 101" built his LA101 having seen the results I was getting with mine

Just to prove the quality of his build, he has kindly given me permission to post a couple of extra targets shot at the Sydney International Shooting Centre with Eley Tenex & RWS R50 - I'm impressed !!!

There is also a third one of these actions getting around down here wearing a Broughton 5C barrel and sitting in an alloy chassis - Also achieving similar results.

I don't have the luxury of having access to the Sydney test facility as I live in the bush but I've built some impressive 22's in my time and Lithgow deserve credit for producing an excellent Australian made action in this LA101.

"Lithgow 101" - That rifle belongs to another fellow down your way - Have been trying to contact him on the Benchrest Bulletin Forum with no joy - Would like to see the alloy chassis on that rifle!

Article in the September 2017 issue of "Rifle -Sporting Firearms Journal" , they seem to be a little pricey given the "listed" price as $1215. Unfortunately I have not been able to track down any distributors/dealers in Canada yet.

OOPS, posted a little to quickly , found a Canadian distributor - www.triggerwholesale.com- however, they are showing prices between $1285 to $1435, even allowing for some discounting this is Anschutz 1416 territory.

I recently got a Lithgow la101 and love it. My only problem is the trigger. It's a good trigger just to heavy. Is there anything on here showing detailed disassembly of the trigger? I recently shot mine in a local 50yd benchrest match off a cheap rest and had good results.

Mine came with a threaded barrel with a thread protector and adapter. Threading is ” x 20 UNF Right Hand but the adapter works with US suppressors.

Is the adaptor included? I'm looking to pick up a new gun trying to decide between three, ironically two are 1/2-20, the Steyr RFR and this one. With CZ managing to figure out what their consumers want in the proper thread pitch on the 455. I actually complained to Steyr at the NRAAM and they are working on getting Austria to listen.

Yes. An adapter came with my rifle.

Legacy's website doesn't make a distinction between rifles that have or don't have a threaded muzzle, but Lithgow's website lists muzzle threading as optional.

Appears the US imports include the threaded muzzle as standard but something to confirm if you go that route.

I was actually leaning towards the synthetic stocked model for the price savings and the fact that I'll be using this in PRS matches where it'll get banged around but after reading they don't tend to shoot as well it has me doubting that choice. Honestly I wouldn't mind getting a chassis but it's doubtful that will ever be available outside of full custom.

Well, Legacy is out and doesn't know when any are coming in. So far it seems they're just taking names for a list. They also didn't give my dealer any discount so it's MSRP if you want one.

Had my FFL put his credentials on the waiting list at Legacy about a month ago. They still had some synthetic stock versions on hand but the laminate is backordered. No estimate given for wait time. The representative at Legacy said they'd been inundated with requests after 22plinkster did the youtube review. Waiting is undesirable but I think it's worth it. I have many tacks that need driven!
