Finished this today.

This started off as a Stiller Spectre action with built in 20 moa rail. A lovely action .

 

Onto it went a Sassen helically fluted blank, in PSS profile , at 22" long.

 

Muzzle threaded M18 x 1 and invisible thread cap, plus one of my 3 port brakes.

The stock is a McMillan HTG M40 Adjustable.

 

First job was to machine out and fit the pillars. Then it was opened up to accept a third eye floor plate, and fully bedded in.

 

A week later, the barrelled action was bedded in too. After machining , I painted the interior. Serves no purpose, but makes it look nice.

This action will run the Accuracy International AW magazine, so it was a no brainer, as they are shorter and smoother than the AICS magazine.

The trigger is one of the excellent Canadian Triggertech units.

All metalwork is done in Ceracoat Graphite black, with the barrel flutes picked out in McMillan grey, to match the grey in the stock.

A pica tinny rail was fitted to the stocks fore end, to accept a Javelin Bipod mount and Q/D swivel.

Finally, the steel specs on the stainless bolt heads bugged me, so into a simple jig they went, and were machined off. :lol:

Paint is Ceracoat Graphite black with the barrel flutes picked out in McMillan grey to match the grey in the stock.

 

All work done in house.

Awesome looking , ONLY needs 2 things ( other than a good scope ) , 1 ) A good can/suppressor & 2 ) A folding stock light weight stock ala Manners .

 

Very NICE .

It's going to be good all rounder for someone!!

That was my exact plan when I ordered it. Can't wait to get hands on as looks even better than my initial visualization

That's very nice. I really like the htg stocks.

 

Not sure on the fluting though!

From a technical point of view, we used to be dead set against fluting barrels but then began to accept that, as most well made guns are more accurate than their users, it probably doesn't actually matter and so if somebody places aesthetics above capability then go ahead.
