    Custom 6.5x47 Lapua For Sale

    Treat yourself for xmas.
    Built by Dean Maisey
    Sako AII action
    True Flite UM barrel
    McMillan Composite Stock
    Gunworks Duralium Suppressor
    Timney Trigger
    Optilock rings
    Zeiss 3.5-10x44 Rapid-Z scope
    Metalwork Milspec'd Green.

    Only issue is trigger needs readjustment and perhaps a new spring. Would take a Gunsmith half an hour and cost $50.

    Photos to come

    She's a real tack driver and fired less than 100 rounds. Must go to fund new ute.

    Make me a serious offer.

    Barrel length?
    Standard chamber or do you have to neck turn?
    How well does the RapidZ line up with your loads and on what power?
    Suppressor thread size?
    Would you sell without the suppressor?
    Weight all up?

    Thanks Matt

    Ah yes of course, I hope you have been keeping well young fella.

    Barrel length- I think it's 18" but will have to double check
    No neck turning required.
    Rapid Z works very, very well. Is spot on at 7 and a 1/2 power with the loads I was using (140gr Amax). I didnt get around to trying the 123gr Amaxs, I'd say they would be perfect.
    I can't remember velocity off the top of my head but think it's close to 2700fps. I have no trouble shooting MOA and deer out to the last increment. As someone who is used to dialing up I was initially skeptical of the ranged reticles but this works really well.
    Unsure of suppressor thread size, it will be whatever is standard-most common. Suppressor has derilin bush to receive thread.
    Would prefer not to sell suppressor separately.
    Weight all up approx: 7 1/2 pounds.

    Rifle is lovely to shoot with almost no recoil.

    Nice looking rig. Who did the mil spec work? I presume the rings are 1"?
    What are your thoughts on the cartridge? Looks like it has some serious accuracy potential from what the F class and BR guys are suggesting. Cheers
