Application: Bush rifle (0-300y)

 

The first thing I did was to have the barrel shortened to 16" and have it threaded.

I then fitted the following accessories:
DTP suppressor.
Leupold VX-3i 3.5-10x40 CDS scope.
Steinert Neopod Ultra Light dipod.
Grovtec GTSL20 sling.

Total cost (including gunsmith): $4,250.00

The entire rig ways 3.1Kg. Weight was an important factor for me as I have a permanent back injury and had bypass surgery in November 2017. I can carry the rifle all day and it isn't a problem weight wise, and it is short enough that it doesn't get hung up in the bush.

More to come.
