    Its been a long time coming....

    I have been after a Remington Titanium for a long time and as murphy's law would have it only three months after having my 7mm Saum finished by Abe that Rob offered me his Titanium in 6.5x47, needless to say the titanium was purchased and the saum was sold to fund the new rig.
    As soon as I could I sent it down to Abe to work his magic on and the Barrel was fluted and re chambered to .260AI, Bottom metal was sourced and a McMillan was fitted, anyway here it is.
    I am absolutely stoked with it and have to thank @tui_man2 for the top work as usual and @von tempsky fan for parting with it


    Specs.

    Remington Titanium S/A trued
    PTG bottom metal trigger guard floor plate etc
    PTG lightweight Firing assembly
    22' inch Vulcan tube fluted in .260 AI
    Mcmillan Hunters Edge
    Hardy Can
    Nightforce 2.5-10x42 Mildot Milrad
    Talley lows
    Atlas Bipod

    Weighs 3.3kg with the can on it

    No offence meant to other posters but when posting pics of a rifle for others to perv at, these are really easy to appreciate. Like the wee NF a lot, practical wee scope and rifle for a turn bolt jobby
