    A good mate of mine bought Cartmans one off here and another mate who got his licence a few years ago got one after picking my brains about what to get.

    Both are very accurate rifles that plain shoot and both owners love em.

    The only fault they both found was the 3 shot mag as they'd have like a 5 shot but that's a preference.

    I've shot both. Both are suppressed and their absolute puppies which have nice triggers.

    Hope this helps

    can order the fixed floorplate from overseas, ask them to ring the importer about ordering the floorplate kit. But yeah its just a personal preference

    GC have the Bergara ridge so basically the same gun just longer barrel and floorplate and not cerakoted

    I take it this would fit, though I wonder how far it would hang down. I suppose it would be similar to a Tikka 5 shot mag.

    Edit - Quite far unfortunately:

    Looks like the new fluted ones that are about to come to market are bringing back the 6.5 Creedmoor as well as the 308 but they are both 18", the Creedmoor used to be 22". 18" is short for a factory Creedmoor, I thought they might do a 7mm08 this time but doesn't look like it.

    Probably will when they get more recognition, noticed it has a fluted bolt aswell but i would say and meh 18" is fine it fits a spot. There's plenty of synthetic stocked models with 22" barrels available

    Yeah man I like a 18" 308. I did see they did some with just a fluted bolt but they have gone the whole way now with the barrel as well, looks pretty sweet see this vid:
