Hot Rod Serb LIVES!

Log in to see fewer ads


The above is an old picture. Tomorrow I will get a couple new ones.

Refresher: The Hot Rod Serb stated life as an extremely homely Charles Daly Zastava. Agoetz2005 refinished the stock for me using tung oil after sanding off all the ugly finish and checkering.

Accuracy while not awful was certainly not enough to maintain my interest. Best groups at 100 yards were with Fed American Eagle AE5022. Those groups ran from 1.25" to 1.5". Not bad but certainly not great. Yes I tried several match ammos but the AE5022 was best

So it stayed for a number of months. What to do?.

The heart of every accurate rifle is the barrel and the chamber there in. The bore of this rifle is extremelt smooth and shiny. That helps. but what to do.....?

Send the barrel to nemohunter for rechambering and other work. Many of our SuperStock shooters have had good luck with nemo reworked barrels and I have a Skeeter reworked barrel that is very accurate. So after shortening to 20 inches it was sent off. I got it back last week and the work looks very nice.

Yesterday after a big struggle I got the barrel back into the action. It is an interference fit so I froze the barrel and heated the action to as hot as I dared. Even with that it was a pretty good struggle getting it seated. I got my excercise!

Today I reassembled the rifle. I will mount the scope tomorrow. Hopefully I will get a chance to test it as well. Reports to follow.

This ought to be fun.
Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.
