Bula Defense Systems XM21 87

Receiver just came in today for another project.
XM21 will be fitted with a Wolfe 18.5" Fluted chrome lined barrel.
Majority of small parts will be Bula.
Stock is walnut USGI which I finished over the last few months.
Can't wait to get started. Maybe this weekend.

Awesome!!

Any idea how much higher the line of sight is with that receiver versus one with iron sights?

Thanks from nf1e

Have fun Art. Really like the deep cut serial number and Bula heel.

What stock are you thinking for the 18.5 configuration?

Really couldn't say. I use an adjustable kydex cheek riser on most of my scoped rifles.

Initially it will be test fired and set up in gi fiberglass.
Then this one will be fitted to a presentation grade usgi walnut that I have been refinishing over the last few months.
The lower darker stock is the one that will be used for this build.



This is the barrel going on this setup.

I'm really interested to see how that barrel shoots. I've been searching since they came out but there isn't much info out there as far as performance goes on this particular barrel.

Exactly why I decided to try one. This rifle is going together for steel shooting out to 300. I have a feeling it will be just what the doctor ordered.

I've been wanting a shorter barrel for my loaded and it was between this barrel, the 18.5" wmsw, or the bula med weight 19.25". With even more barrel options in the chute I may wait some more to see what comes out. I look forward to the results of this build.

Doesn't take long to screw in a barrel.
The Wolfe 18.5 Fluted med weight chrome lined headspaced right at 1.632 in the Bula Defense Systems receiver using a Bula bolt version 2. I will have to pick up a few of their final version with the logo.
Should have some kind of report this weekend. Temps are supposed to be in the 40s so I am anxious for her first dance.
