    Now that is GORGEOUS!! I can't tell what kind of fluting the barrel has. Could you get a close up pic of the fluting?

    What amateur did that bedding job? It's not polished enough to use as a mirror!
    :D

    Seriously, though, absolutely beautiful rifles! Those stocks and fluting are perfect!

    Looks like your feet are getting wetter! Very nice! Do you happen to know what Brux calls that fluting so I can order one? That is sharp!

    What is the difference between the McM XIT and the McM Prone stock? The stocks seem to be very similar.

    Swwweeeet! - very nice.

    A lot of machining there. What does it add to the cost of a barrel?

    Thanks for that. It looked a little fancier than the "interrupted" I've seen before. Someday, you might tell me how you get your bedding so smooth!:D;)
