Another great collection LOF! I like the red touch on that 1st rifle. My preference for a stock is the Boyds "At One Competition" not sure what color yet but the steel in it is going to be all SS or silver.
Right now I feel the way to go based on what I have put together so far, is with all Kidd hardware. Their write ups seem to be very good & they have what I want. They have a silver receiver with a scalloped bolt along with a silver trigger group and a heavy fluted 20" barrel. However this is not yet cast in stone but in doing my do diligence & research outside of going with the really high end stuff they are in the ball park (price range) with accuracy & reliability as all the other guys. It's going to be a while before it all gets done but right now that is how I'm trending.
What say you guys?

I have a Ruger brand 16 inch carbon clad barrel right now in my shop...
Its heavier than it looks, about the same weight as a std 18.5 inch carbine barrel but I'm sure
the blue 18.5 inch carbine w/open sights barrel will be more accurate...
