    D94C6AEF-0B11-46D0-A107-0AE612557423.jpeg The Sako Benchrest action is a single shot. Apparently there weren't very many made with that bolt face. Most were the PPC. Here's the original action box.

    Yeah baby!! TRUCK GUN THREAD!!! DOG PILE!!

    This rifle shouts durability. Tools in the grip. Scope and mount pop off with three screws if ya wanna use open battle sights.

    She'll shoot 2 MOA on a good day -- if I do my part.:rolleyes: It is ripping good fun as a 0 - 100 yd. ground squirrel rifle. I haven't done it yet, but I'd shoot a deer out to 200ish. jd

    So you guys are going to take these nice rifles and throw them into the back of a pickup truck and haul off across the field with them? How about and old Enfield jungle carbine? Now that's a truck gun.

    I throw mine in the back of my Landcruiser. It's a truck underneath it all.

    My thoughts as well. Make it a rifle no one will cry about if it gets banged up under the seat.
