    Model 7 260 imp

    I just got the 2-7x33 back from Leupold after they gave it a free clean up

    So I put it the Alumina caps on it & put it on the finished Model 7, 260 improved bush rifle.

    I took it up the range today to sight it in after changing the scope over, the only problem was the crosshair blocked out the dot @ 100m, the joys of a 7 power scope

    It weighs 5.22 lbs, 2.370kgs as it sits in the pics without the bipod.



    Here it is when it had the 4.5-14x40 on it & Limbsaver.



    It has a Alloy firing pin & shroud, fluted bolt & barrel, lightened action & bolt handle.



    I'm very happy with how it has turned out, it is sooo light, the stock will get damaged, but such is life it is 24-30% lighter than a Carbon fibre one.



    Certainly more than accurate enough with the 120 GMX at 3100fps for it's primary role.

    A bit more bore size and it would be perfect!

    Yeah but better to use a laser rather than a bloody mortar just kidding VC, at least with a 308 ammo is easy to get
