10 1/2 pound .243 gas gun is a terrific platform!

"Slick" is the right word. That's a really nice set up.

Nice, the only thing I don't like is the color! Just not into FDE, but I'm old. My granddaughter said "POPS" does OD in OD green mean "OLD DUDE" After I wiped my eyes I said, WHY? Well only old dudes are buying the OD Green VooDoo hats. Maybe she has a point!

Hello all, thanks for the complements. I'm the author and can ask any questions you may have as the project progresses. Brandon made a great rifle.

I chose FDE because most Texas environments are brown. But I get your reservation

Am I reading the scale right that the finished gun weighed 10lbs 9.15 ounces?

I looked at JP Rifles RediRifle program and it seems like their 8.9 lb 308 rifle with rings and a 19.2 oz scope would total to about 10lb 2oz. Does the difference in bore explain the 7 oz difference. I know that at $3400 the JP is pretty pricey.
