Looks great! You will have a blast shooting it. I've been shooting quite a bit the last several days.

That’s a good looking rifle! How do you put the two lines on the cheek rest? That molding really gives it a nice touch!

Very nice rifle! You got the toe plate from Track? Curious because I have an order in and want a toe plate on my build.
also- the rifle case looks perfect. Where is it from?
Thanks and congratulations again!
Thank you!
Yep got the toe plate from Track but I will say I wish it was slightly wider.

The case is from The Log Cabin Shop. Here's the part no.
