So I bought this a while back and have been shooting it bone stock with iron sights. Basic cheapy model, all black with plastic stock. Been keeping an eye out for deals as I knew everything I wanted to throw on it...

Anyways, here what Ive done so far...

Hogue Overmold Stock
ER Shaw 18" SS Fluted Barrel
DNS Game Reaper 1 piece Scope Mount
Butler Creek Flip Caps
Nikon Buckmaster 3-9x40 Scope

I still want to paint the flutes (like the Senderos are), do something with the trigger, and free float and bed the stock. The front bottom of the stock is rubbin on the barrel...


Its a shooter. took it to the range yesterday, tried Remington Subsonic, CCI HyperVelocity, CCI CB Long, and Federal Premium Game Shock HighVelocity 38 grain... I was thinking the subsonic ammo would work the best at 100 yards, but I got by far the best grouping with the FedPrem.

Here is my target, shot 4, couldnt shoot a 5th, was to excited with how these turned out. This thing is a blast, almost as accurate as my 243 at 100 yards! And I can shoot all day long for hardly spending any $$$ on ammo.

Nice rifle....you can lighten the trigger by just replacing the hammer. Good luck and looks great!!

Its a ER Shaw 18" fluted SS, found it brand new on gunbroker.com, I think it was around $135 OTD...

Thanks, I am trying a few different brands of match ammo, and none of them shoot as good at 100yrds as that cheapo Federal does, the problem is that stuff past 100 goes crazy and is horrible... Right now its between the Federal Match and the CCI Green Tag... Trying to get set for a 200 yard match next month...
