Rebuilding, continued

So I got my Frankensteinian monstrosity out to the range. I have no idea how many different guns these parts came out of, but everything fits together just fine except the butt stock. If anyone knows someone who might make these, please let me know.

Anyway this is what she looks like:

Alternative for a higher quality(Possibly the best) but priced accordingly contact remcrazy on this forum. I don`t have his email but perhaps someone here does.

Those look pretty good. Might have to give them a call.

The odd thing about The Monster is that it shoots better than my other .30, the one that unscrews itself under recoil. It also feeds both of my handloads: the regular ones with the 150 gr round nose bullets, and the Hornady 150 gr Spitzers. These last my unscrewing gun would have trouble extracting for some odd reason. The Monster eats them right up.

I dunno...It's a Frankensteinian monster, alright, but she's one of our ladies, too. I therefore say that she shall be named the Bride:

Took The Bride out shooting this weekend. Nice and sunny, as you can see. She ate everything up and nothing unscrewed, fell off or shorted out.

At 100 yards the upper three holes are Hornady FTX 160 gr over 30 gr of 3031. The lower three holes are Sierra 150 gr RN over the same charge. She also dinged an 8 inch plate at the same range with monotonous regularity.
