    I think i just came a little bit :wackit:

    Nice. I'm guessing .308 instead of .30-'06? and are you going to finish it in a different color? I'm also guessing no happy switch...

    Looks like a good build.

    I have a crank kit which makes it faster than a happy switch!

    and its 308 but I have an 8mm barrel and 10,000 rounds of 8mm ready to go!
    I now need a tripod!

    We can go to the Chestnut Mountain range by Calhoun. The ranger might shit a brick thinking it's full auto, but it would be fun until he shows up...

    I have no idea.. Lets add it up :)

    Parts Kit $299+29 for shipping
    Right Side plate $120
    Engraving $21
    Internals Machined $200
    Rivet set $17.. but I needed 2 bc I fucked up
    Trunnion- $150 (not normally needed)
    Links $20 /100 but you can get cheaper
    308 ammo. 140rounds for $55.


    So $928 out the door but if you dont fuck as much it can be done short of $800!

    That's the common misnomer.

    The range is in the John's Mountain WMA. However, the range is run by the National Forest, they call it the Chestnut Mountain Shooting Range.

    The National Forest is in charge of the land and facilities, the GA state WMA is in charge of all the animals.
