    A helpful tip is to check all mounts put on all rifles either at the factory or your favorite gun shop especially chain stores...

    Rinse them with brake clean to get rid of all the oil...then break out the loctite & go mad

I'll probably use different case brands for each rifle.
    I have one the BA13's on order. What is the measurement of the MK2 overbarrel suppressor? Specifically how far back over the barrel does it go @Cigar?

    @Sasquatch mine has the S/S modular Mk2 which goes roughly 120mm overbarrel, so i had to chop bout 20mm off the rifle handgaurd to get it on

    100% loctitie bolts and bed rail, they are notorious for working themselves loose. Mine did twice. Do either of your release mechs bind up a bit? I'm thinking it's time to take mine back

    I haven’t noticed any binding, but the rifle spent the afternoon in pieces while I measured OAL for various projectiles, checked chambering of various cases and rounds and cleaned the barrel.
    One thing I did notice is that the action won’t open no matter how hard you work the hammer I need some serious practice time before I need a second shot at an animal!

    What's the recoil like on the .308? They are really light rifles aren't they?

    Haven't fired mine yet, but they are around 3kg or just under unscoped. They have a good recoil pad, and with the suppressor I expect it will be less recoil than my fibreglass stocked Brno. I'll be running mostly lighter loads in mine with 30-30 projectiles anyway, I have the 170gr do a bit under 2400fps in the Brno, it will be interesting to see what the speed is with a third less barrel length, probably about normal 30-30 speed.

    Not that light man pretty hefty barrel. Recoil is not bad at all, good straight stock with a decently high comb. Felt Recoil is low for a 308

    Yes to me it does have a bit, as you say very light rifle, nothing to them
    Suppressor makes it way better to shoot IMHO & it does have a good recoil pad

    Definitely had some kick, probably similar or a bit less than my Brno, but more muzzle lift, noise, and flame! The guys watching were having a laugh.
    The suppressor calmed it down a lot both in noise and recoil.

    Which loctite do you recommend.
