New DiOrio Turbo V3 Benchrest Build hot of the press!



Log in to see fewer ads
Let me start off with I have always wanted a serious benchrest rimfire rifle. I was looking at a local used gun and ended up meeting some great guys who shoot ARA that live relativity close to me. Both are RFC members Tad E and todde.

After several conversations over the next few months they offered to help get a build together for me. These guys were already competing and had done their own builds and I'm sure they had better things to do in their spare time other than help put together a rifle for me. All three of us have full time jobs.

Ended up starting with a New Turbo V3 Receiver, Shillen Ratchet, Jewel trigger, in a Mcmillan straight line.

Let me go ahead and tell you those guys do Superb work! The machining is flawless, fit and finish Perfect ! And the best part is the rig SHOOTS! It has already made an appearance in Oak Ridge,TN at their ARA club tournament a few weekends back.

Thank you Tad E and Todde for all the hard work!

The scope rings are BKL.

I'm lucky to have Tad and Todd close by, they are always willing to help and give good advise.

First 10 ARA match cards averaged 2197 outdoor. I believe that says a lot.

IMHO, this is the McMillan model (Solid Fill) to purchase, if you are shooting unlimited class and weight in not an issue.

Brandon's stock is a solid fill. Complete rifle was a little over 15 pounds.

I watched through the spotting scope via a cell phone adapter, Plinker4life shoot a 2250 through this rifle on his 4th ever card 3 Jul using two different lots of ammo. Once Brandon gets a better bench to practice off of and more experience with the flags he is going to give a lot of folks in ARA a run for their money. That rifle that Plinker4life, todde and todde's dad collaborated on is going to give a lot of old timers in ARA fits.

I am a lucky man. If I win the lottery I don't have far to travel to get in putting together a world class rifle, plus sound advice on how to shoot it.

In the mean time I get to shoot a Kimber 82g that these fellows helped tweak that makes me giggle like a "grade schooler" every time I put it on the bench.

Thanks for the info! I was hoping for a fully inletted straight line stock for an Anschutz 1907 round action.
