    A build for the damaged?

    I have spent quite a few hours tonight and yesterday reading and looking at stocks and cal.
    Here's the speck, some movement and strength on the left side! The left hand will make the height of an AR mag but can't go passed the mag ( what's normal for me is my hand holds the trigger guard) and I can lock of the elbow into the hip this will allow shooting short term.
    The right wont left above eye height, but still able to shoulder and hold short term.
    So my thoughts are 1 in 9 twist .223 cz 527 carbine with a thump hole stock ( this will have to be shortened as well)if that's possible? also cut the carbine barrel and suppress it, this will make it a big bunny buster with the ability of a heavy projectile for what ever it is needed for.
    Now the other side of this, as most of us aren't full of cash as I had to take early retirement two years ago.
    So just trying like most to keep the cost of the build down, I can't just roll over and not have ago
    You can pm me or post, and put your take on it. many minds here can solve things sometimes or see things that other cannot.
    The thing I like is the 1 in 9 twist as those little 40gn flatten most things.
    I was going to re barrel a browning 308 but sold it which should be in the rifle I shouldn't of sold list
    Time goes when you are writing and reading, still like to hunt or just have a walk with a bang stick

    Good choice of calibre.

    If you are looking at second hand parts or rifle to rebuild don't limit yourself to a 1 in 9 twist. I have 1 in 12 twist and I have used many projectile weights up to and including 60gr.

    I have gone back to 55gr for deer after having a tinkle with 60gr on them.

    So with 45gr to 60s range I consider myself well equipped for bunnies or bucks and all in between.

    Boyds do some very nice thumbhole stocks that are affordable, around $200 NZD including shipping, but they might be a bit heavy ?

    Also consider bipods or shooting sticks to take the strain off your arms...

    Yes have been thinking on the thump hole do you know the weight? and the bipod I would make quick detachable instead of having it on full time.

    That's a good price for what I have seen in the AR line up.
    Cut that barrel will help the weight and no need to work the bolt! is the price justifiable ?
    Well we will see what comes out of the forum.

    Hi Mate,

    I've got on my xmas shopping list a The Ruger American RifleŽ Ranch Bolt-Action Rifle Models
    in AAC 300 blackout which given the price point for these might be a option to start at. I like the 16.5 inch barrel already for a suppressor like a little DPT or something.

    Could you get a Boyd's for that? don't know they're still pretty new on the scene. It has a nice 4 shot rotary mag and you could happily shoot subsonic loads with a 225 or 112 or 125 super loads quite happily with not much more recoil than a 223.

    I agree with scribe tho a well placed 223 round in 55gr blitz (outback) or Hornady v-max is more than enough explosively for neck shots to drop the animal pretty much on the spot.

    Just another thought? and has a very good price tag. Factory rounds a bit pricey but I'm sure there's guys who'd be happy to get you some handloads to try.

    Good luck on the search...

    They'd be on par with the Windham.

    Yes spoke to someone today about this in .223 1/8 twist.
    what I know is the 40gn will pin hole in the 1/9 and I have left that as a base so far.
    But we all can learn something from someone after you spit out the bones
    Thanks for the idea, it will be put into the hat for a look at .
