Done for Now



Log in to see fewer ads
What started as a stock carbine with a BX trigger soon turned into a full on project. This stuff is addicting. Shaw barrel, Hogue stock and Bushnell Banner 4x12 AO. Did the scotchbrite bit too. Test firing this weekend if wind stays low. Accuracy potential is there but was using a 2x7 post crosshair hand me down.

Pick up a receiver, swap it out, and you'll have your original Carbine back...

just a thought...

??? I really don't want a stock carbine anymore, never really liked the looks of it. Too M1ish for my personal tastes. I think a bolt will be the next addition but it's not a bench gun, range fun and squirrel harassment....

Unstable rest (sand filled shot bags and a couple 4x6"s) but not bad for the second range session. Wolf printed low but grouped well as did the Federal Gold medal (old box). Will need to get better rest and try some different ammo but the results are what I hoped for for a hunting, plinking, bench gun. 5 shots 50 yards, the upper right would have been stellar if I didn't put too much shoulder into it.

The force of the Darkside is strong, plans for incremental upgrades are in place, but you already knew that!

Done?
Surely you jest.....
For some reason I think this thread may have a longer life than you envisioned.

I bought a Stainless ER Shaw barrel several years ago. Was accurate, but I guess the chamber was tight, as it would start failing to extract after around 50 rounds or so. Turned into a safe queen. Ended up sending it to CPC with a gun, and it came back both accurate AND reliable.

Nice looking gun!

Here's mine.

My Shaw sporter wt. is more fussy too, but once it balks I bend a Q-tip, dip in bore solvent, wipe out the chamber and leade then flip it, dry the chamber and rock on.
All I send is bullets downrange

Come to think of it I did have a couple FTE episodes, thanks for the memory trigger guys. Done for now was a true statement, "for now". I see a KIDD or JWH bolt in my future just for reliability purposes. It's not going to become a ballz to the wall bench gun, never say never though. I just like shooting accurate "tools" be it big bore revolvers or bows. Great site with a ton of "been there done that" information.
