That a pretty nice .22. I have a friend that has a MK2 and its a pretty good shooter. I have a Ruger 10/22T that I have reworked and it is simply a pleasure to shot. What are your plans for the 20" varmint? I would assume this to be an AR15 upper. Will you be benching this weapon, using it for varmint hunting or both? I have a Noveske N4 with a 16" Recce low profile upper and I was concidering a 20"varmint upper for varmint hunting. You need to get both of those weapons oyt and stretch their legs a bit.....

Probally make a Mini Sass out of it, mostly bench shooting it has a 1:9 twist should do good
with 55-69 gr bullets, I hope it shoots well ? I even bought a three pound timney trigger and
installed it the other day, it was a great improvement.....very nice.

Well I am late to the Campfire, but if were into the "what am I doing to the builds"... I will bite.
I just ordered a Rock River Predator Pursuit upper for my AR lower that I have put together....60 day build time from Rock River. Cant wait to check this off the to do list.
Been reading up on optics for her...really looking at the Nikon M-223 line for it. Been very happy with the Nikon on the 700. Got another 250 rds of 150 gr ammo for the .308... and since the stock overhaul... (thanks to 308isgreat ;) )have not had the chance to tune her in at the range...which is a sad state of affairs in it of itself... need more hours in the day.
Other than that...just enjoying the weekend.

Cant wait to get a range report on the 700 project and see if that stock helps your cause. Love my Nikon on my 700! Really clear, dead on and rock solid optic. I have bought a few more boxes of factory rounds myself for the .308, but I just finished loading 150 rounds so my 168gr Sierra match king bullet supply is running low. :( I'm going to have to look at biting the preverbial bullet and look to buy 500 at a time to save a few more bucks. Just picked up a inch pound torque wrench last friday and have used it to get proper torque on the scope bases, rings and the stock mounting bolts. I can probably use it when tightining the allen bolts on the freefloat tube on my Noveske N4 Recce low pro. Speaking of AR-15 I just installed the Magpul AFG ( angled forward grip ) and it really feels alot better then the LaRue vertical forwaed grip I had. Better comfort and better forward control of the weapon now. Hats off to Magpul for all the neat items you can dress you black rifle with!

Here it is, with an upper on it...which i am not going to end up using on the build...which means I need to order some more parts...it never ends...lol

Well.......
I was all excited about getting out to shoot the new HS equipped SPS Tac on Saturday, but had a bunch of things come up to ruin my day. Had to make the rounds on Mother's Day, so it was out as well. Got sick of taking the gun out of the safe every hour or so to fondle it, so I end up pulling the bolt and ship it to AZ Precision today for an oversize knob install. I'll get her out for a shoot eventually, I hope!

P.S. I have the Hogue stock for sale if anyone wants it.

Thanks to 308isgreat, I have the Hogue stock off his on my SPS 700, non tactical version...and I must say that it was a great improvement over the factory stocker...stock. ;)
Just throwing this out for ya... and for anyone looking for a better stock for a base model 700 SPS like mine. It was a bolt on install...no fudging with anything...and now the barrel is free floated.
Will all be worth the wait when ya get her back... can't wait to hear the results.

Whats AZ Precision charging you if you dont mind me asking. I am going to do the same thing and want a reputable shop to do the work.

308,

The owner of AZ Precision is Keith Johns. He quoted me $75 for the knob, install, and re-finish. I sent him a drawing of a custom knob that he is going to machine for me, so I don't know what additional charges I will end up with yet. Keith comes highly recommended from a bunch of guys on the Sniper's Hide Forums. Check out his work on his website. I have no doubt that he will do a fantastic job.

This is just what the Dr. ordered! Looks like I will have the bolt sent out for a Phoenix tactical knob install and have him apply black Cerakote to the knob and bolt. Thanks for the 411!

Nice AR NBT, but I have to get used to the curvy lines of that Seekins lower reciever.

Thanks...the lower has a unique look for sure....and the AR has a "long" way to go... optics...bipod...ect. That should take up some of the slack.

I think you said you are looking at the Nikon M-233 line of scopes for this rifle. I too have been looking at these and they look like a pretty good scope for the price. I have also been looking at the Leupold Mark AR series and they too look good as well. My needs are to put my rounds spot on @ 100yds. I dont usually shoot my AR beyond 100yds and at that range the lesser magnification models would be ideal for varmint hunting. If it's much further out then it gets a .308 welcome mat!

Thanks Quick... on a side note...the Nikon M223 line of scopes are tough to come by...so I am giving this until July before I get the chance to mount up some accessories...which is driving me crazy. I want to shoot this so bad...sigh... :/ I do have an old Bushnell scope around here...which would get me on paper...but...kind of a "waste" of ammo...so I wait. To be honest, it's not that big of a deal...have plenty to do on other projects.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

NBT
