Range Report

I performed less than optimal this day. It was 32 degrees with 18 mph winds so human error was definitely to blame. Shooting at 100 yards w/Hert ammo I think the overal 20 round spread was 7". Not my best work with a rifle but it was all me. I shot with the winter trigger for ten of the rounds.

Not bad for 20 rounds! and first time out with it. If you putting the front on a rest with the legs folded.? Try opening the legs a little so the weapon is resting on wood.

One I had from The Garand Man. A Truppe Alpini model. If I recall correctly, this is what the M14 is supposed to be, but Beretta had an issue with the US using it's design without compensation...never mind they modified Garands to build it.

Good deal for you Pappy, Tim does some really nice work. Is it a garand receiver he has machined? I really regret buying junk from Classic/James River. It would have been well worth the extra money to get quality work. How about some more pictures?

Yes this is a converted US Springfield receiver, unfortunately I have been so busy that I have not had any free time to go to the range and try her out. I was also considering a JRA build as well but decided to buy the one Tim had already finished and ready to go. I will get some additional pictures up tomorrow.
