Hi Everyone!

This is an awesome site, tons of info and vast amounts of experience! I have been a long time reader, and I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their contribution! I picked up a 5R couple of weeks ago and been feverishly getting it ready, now I can finally say that it is ready thanks to everyone's contribution.

Thanks again everyone!

Very nice, I like!

But how does she shoot??!!!!

Thanks dudes.

She's still brand new, zero rounds through the barrel. First test drive should be this weekend, hopefully I can polish my technique enough to do her some justice.

i see labor of love put in at your build esp the paint job - nice.
(just got a glimpse of the snap cap - quite smaller than the actual ammo.)
......its a beauty overall! :)

What contour barrel is the 5R? Is it varmint like the SPS Varmint?

Cut your toenails.


Then come and join some CaPRC shoots.

Everything is labor of love. I had a lot of help with the paint job from my shooting buddy but in the end we can say that this was built by us and if it shoots like crap it is our fault.

According to http://www.snipercentral.com/milspec5r.phtml
5R contour is similar to 700P/Varmint.

CAPRC looks interesting! Me and my shooting buddy will be out at Angeles Range this Sunday to break-in and zero so we will join you guys in the near future!

Toe jams are great! Lets you know you are moving.
