A purpose built, short, lightweight rifle chambered specifically for the Federal 175SMK gold medal match.

Raw components, Defiance Rebel long action, McMillan stock in multicam, Bartlein .30cal 1-8 twist barrel, Badger M24 bottom metal and FTE brake, Timney trigger.

Headspace set.

Parts freshly cerakoted in Coyote Tan and Patriot Brown.

Trial fitting of barreled action to stock, ejection port extended, all clearances checked, ready for bedding.

Stock's existing inlet was missing structural support between the bottom metal and trigger inlet. A strut will be made using epoxy reinforcing rigidity, maximizing accuracy.

Stock is roughed, degreased, ready for bedding compound.

Epoxy is applied.

Initial separation, perfect stress-free bedding, off to the mill for cleanup.

Note the epoxy strut, reinforcing and increasing the stocks rigidity. Proper reliefs made, all clearances checked.

DBM is bedded to the stock, full contact without compression, zero lateral movement, no slop or bind, perfectly level.

Clearances made for Timney Trigger's wide housing, cold bluing is applied.

Rifle Complete.
