SO i never thought i would want this style of rifle, but my friend has one and its a sweet bit of steel.

hard pill to swallow with it decked out with normal hunting things, runs right at 2k ,

truglo scope eminus 24, 18" barrel, adjustable butt stock for cheek and length, m lok bipod.


any thoughts? :clapping:

picked it up later (edit) this morning :rules:

we got a sweet deal on a lease of about 400 acres, 12 month lease and can harvest any legal critter , plus all the hogs we can harvest. (food)
so this puppy will be dropped in to service alongside the savage 308 .

One thing to keep in mind, is that most of the time firearm accessories don’t add to the value of the gun. What if you hate the add on’s and put new ones on it. Well then you lost money. I’d look up the book value of that rifle and go from there.

agreed, thats why i only went with a standard hand rail, but did splurge on the scope , stock and bipod. the stock with its many adjustments, equals buy in from my wife. she commented it was comfortable for her, she is 5 feet where as i am a shade over 6 3".

299 for scope, 1400 for unit, 170 for stock, which i thought was a bit high, but he dropped 10% of it with a guarantee if i dont like it he will buy that back and put the stock one on

we shall see soon

Love the Luth AR stocks, I've got one on a recent build that's almost finished and another on a Howa 1500.

the adjustable stock is a huge GOOD plus for my wife. We spent hours with my friends, adjusting and getting a feel for it. she loved it. this rifle is a few pounds lighter than his, so she should like it even more.

hopefully we get to warm up the barrel tomorrow.

With a .308, "a few pounds lighter" also equals "noticeably more perceived recoil". That’s good.....maybe it won’t become "her" rifle. :mrgreen:

I am looking for a good sling that attaches to the hand guard and somewhere near the butt stock or on it, similar to what i have on my savage bolt action 308.
everyone wants to sell a strap like you would use that attaches only right near the butt stock connection and goes around your shoulder. so i have only one point of contact on the rifle, which really interferes with shooting in the kneeling or standing position where i could use the strap to aid support to the extended arm holding the hand guard

i had thought to get a mount for the hand guard and use my sling off the savage, but attaching it to butt stock seems to be an issue. any advice?

or am i doing it wrong :mrgreen:

found this on luth webpage
https://www.luth-ar.com/product/grovtec ... g-swivels/

well a bit more digging and magpul and grovetec have what i am looking for...of course OUT OF STOCK this may be why shops try selling me the tactical style

I've used a Blue Force Gear Vickers sling for years. I usually attach mine using 550 cord to the front of my rifles (if I don't have a mounting point) and just thread it through the rear. The main reason I like them, is that they are quick adjust so I can tighten or loosen the sling up quickly. Whether its a support for shooting, or working with both hands or trying to get over obstacles. And the padded one (linked) is awesome when carrying heavier rifles.

+1 on the Vicker's. I had a single point, that I made myself, it would detach and become a two point, but with no adjustment. Check out their sling hardware also, you should be able to find the attachment, that will work best for you.

+3 on the Vickers slings. I have 3 of them—2 padded, and one not.
