    HnF is, which is a local engineering company that apparently can thread with out removing The barrel. That was my concern about having to retouch the finish (had bad experiences with a local smith.
    Throwing the DPT from my 308 on it, pretty much dedicating it to being a gong gun.
    Awesome, also worried about having the exposed steel where the thread is cut.

    Looks a bit out of place amongst the blued steel and walnut!

    I've asked for a thread protector to be cut at the same time, bearing in mind these are blued rifles.
    I haven't shot mine either, should have some loads done for next weekend.
    Was going to do a mini write up about them as I struggled to find any real info on them from a NZ perspective.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    This is my latest rifle project. Picked up a T3 action with no bolt, and have gone from there with accumulated bits, using bolt from another T3 I have, boyds stock, tikka super varmint barrel thanks to @Dead is better calibre is 6.5-06, initial load work is very promising with the 142g SMK

    Yeah, I carry that in my truck. Wife also carries an AR in her Infiniti. I've been targeted off duty.

    Yeah, they really don't like my wife and I. Since we're both Latino and a mixed raced marriage too boot.

    Here in the US, Gun Grabbers just call that an evil sniper rifle used for long distance killing. Especially the surpressor attached is a naughty piece. The grabbers say it is so you can hide your signature and kill more innocents.

    It doesn't matter what type of firearm. They want them all banned.

    I don't bash folks for what they own and why. I own firearms for self defense, for hunting, for target shooting, and just for burning a hole in my pocket when I have money to spend. Some of my guns will never be fired. I just own them because I wanted it.

    But I will not let someone disarm me. My family went through that once already. They were executed by the commie bastard Ernesto "Che" Guevara ad Fidel Castro.

    My family got to experience the true wonder of civilian disarmament.

    This thread is for pictures of firearms, and I'm keen to see what any forum members want to share, regardless of where they live. We can try to moderate what gets posted here and have a forum-wide ban on the word 'weapons' and it won't make any difference given what NZ shooters post on Bookface and youtube. 'Arm' is another word for weapon, if you are bearing one you are 'armed' and they are often kept in an 'armoury', to take one away is to 'dis-arm'. A 'fire-arm' is an arm (weapon) that uses burning gases (the 'fire' bit) to launch a projectile. As opposed to a pole-arm for instance which is a spear or pike. A weapon is a specific type of tool, designed or used to kill. A firearm is a specific type of weapon used to kill by means of a projectile propelled by burning gas. Most of us own weapons designed to kill animals, many of us own weapons designed to kill people, which we use to shoot targets or animals. You can call it a weapon, firearm, rooty-tooty-point-and-shooty, "das black-und-scary-laudenboomer" or anything else, but I really don't think it will change the perceptions held by people who use them, or those held by the general public. The way to change people's perceptions is not to re-label something, but to show them how it works. So don't argue with each other here; convert someone new by taking them to the range!
    Okay rant over, more gun porn please =)
