My new 14

So my new M25 arrived the other day. GI stock, 18.5, tanker LRB. I also added the black nitride piston. It's wearing a Leupold Mark 4 4.5-14x40
I'm very pleased although quite a bit poorer. Lol

That is an awesome rifle! Like the stock.

Just an observation but I think you would have room for a lower scope ring if you wanted.

Dang if you ain't right six click.
I've been so busy with work and hunting season I missed that but yeah, that scope is too high. I thought they were sending me medium rings. Now I have to check and see what they are as those look big. I have low ring on just about everything I own and usually there is space for a piece of paper to slide between the barrel and objective the scope but not much more.
Thanks for pointing that out.

Nice looking set-up. Now drop that scope down about 1/2" and rub the stock down with some True Oil and buff it with some 0000 steel wool when it dries and you'll have a real looker and a better cheek weld with the lower scope rings.

Nice rig.
As mentioned, Lower the scope and oil up your stock. Make sure your handguard has clearance fore and aft and that there is space between it and your stock.
Then get a good cheek riser and add one of Hawk's dummy kits.
When you get ready to head to the range, turn the sling around so the keeper is forward and the butt clip is at the butt.
I think you are going to enjoy the scope rifle combination.
I have a bunch of MK4 3.5 - 10s and they are super.
If you ever get up to the NW part of the state, you are welcome to shoot with me anytime on my home range and we can compare notes.

10-4. I already took the scope off and will hopefully make it to range this afternoon. Once I realized what I did, I had to rip it off.
I may be able to get to cabellas late today and get some low rings.

Thanks for the invite. Looks like you are the Hickock 45 of CT with that range. 10-4 on the rings, I've been so sleep deprived from getting up at 4 to bowhunt. A cheek pad would really complete the look.

Had no idea what Hickock 45 was until I did a quick search.
What are you doing with the deer at those dark times of the morning? Jack lighting. Or do you just like to catch them while they are still in their pjs.
Cheek pad is for functionality, not just looks.

lol, yup add some steel targets and you too can make $ on you-tube.
Understood on the cheek rest. Knew that. It does contribute to the look though.

Because it's been so warm, deer tend to move more at night and early morning, before the temperatures climb. I get up then so I can shower, drive there, walk in and be in the tree before the sun comes up. You have to allow extra time to climb a tree with a climber stand if you want to be quiet.
This is a good way to catch them coming back to their beds. Now with the time change, I think we will need to be up about 3:30 for rifle season.

I managed to shoot the M25 sans scope Sunday afternoon. Basically went through the break in procedure as described on the barrel site. One shot- clean, one shot -clean, lol
It was fun anyway. Rifle range was packed, weekend before deer season. After this week it will go back to normal, no one there for the most part.

I had a phone call from a friend that stopped by Wooster Mtn club in Danbury yesterday. He said that the parking lot was full of guys waiting for a bench to sight in their deer rifles. He made the trip to my place and had a ball with no wait.
Took this photo on my range 3 weeks ago, just so you remember what they are supposed to look like.

nf1e, nothing like rubbing it in! Here in SD we are loosing deer left and right due to blue tongue and other bad things. Due have a four by four that likes to drink the water wife puts out for her bees.
