Chris' Thanksgiving Build Along
Well I am on leave for Thanksgiving like most of you....my boss was kind enough to let me have the weekend off....tough working for yourself laugh .....so while on leave I am going to work in the shop! Just not on customers stuff. One of mine is finally going to get done....Its been about a year since I built myself a custom.

So here we have a barrel.....

Very nice contour of the muzzle brake to barrel! I Like the diameter of the brake. Almost aerodynamic in a way. Nice build. Are you going to leave it a 2 tone or coat it a solid color?

Looks great. I also have a stock like that that is new to me. I found that I have to open up the thumbhole more so I can get my hand more behind the grip It is very sensitive to how I grip it and to where the bullet hits. Love the brake you have.

Am I the only one that can't see the pics??? Confused Sounds like a good looking gun, but instead of pics I see a red outlined circle w/ a red slash from 11 o'clock to 5 o'clock. cry


Good luck and good hunting.

Nevermind...... Now I CAN see the pics and it is a nice looking gun/build. thumbup Don't know what happened w/ the pics. Maybe I somehow was no longer signed in?


Good luck and good hunting.
