Show your Accuracy International


Recommended Posts

I started such a tread a while ago, however it disapeared for some unknown reason, so following my previous post on the subject of a (number of ) picture threads heres the first one - Accuracy International

 

Please show a picure of your AI, maybe a few words on specification, any changes / modifications and why you purchased an AI (I apologise in advanced for being a bit of an AI fan boy).

 

Here is mine - AI AT, 308, 26" barrel, AI muzzle brake, Schmidt and Bender PM II 12-50x56 (second focal plane with P4 fine reticle), AI bipod, Next step is a thumbhole stock conversion. I purchased an AI (50th Birthday present to myself), because I like the style of rifle, I enjoy McQueens comps and thought it would be a suitable choice whilst also allowing me to participate in other forms of completion and general target shooting.

Mac .308 - what a fantastic collection (I wish I had similar, [well an AX 308 and 338]), lucky you, must be a lot of fun.

 

Where do you shoot the AW50?

be it a accuracy international or a remy copy in that drab olive or flat dark earth will always be my favorite looking rifle.the scope on this one looks like shorter mounts are needed.

AI-6.5x47.jpg

 

One of my favourite rifles is my ancient AI/AE chambered in 6,5x47. These days it looks virtually the same however with a CG M22 trigger and biathlon sling and is my long distance rabbit rifle. I have also reduced the length of the legs on the bipod by an inch or so and added some short spikes to stop the rifle moving forward when I load the bipod up.The odd looking cheek piece is because I could never get on with the original set-up and the rear butt spacers are because I took the original out to use as a template.

 

Next job is to bush the firing pin aperture and fit a smaller diameter firing pin which I have been threatening to do for the last 5 years!

shaggy - that is a thing of beauty !!

 

What calibre?

 

I agree, wish similar was within my budget when I purchased my AT: unfortunately it wasn't - you are lucky indeed.

 

It would be interesting to compare to an AT of equivalent calibre.
