Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default New barrel and Duracoat finish on the old Sako

It was time for a new tube on the Sako AV I've had for the last 31 years. I got the gun back from the gunsmith with a new 1:9 twist Brux SS Bull Sporter, cut to 26" and chambered in 300 WM.

The stainless tube, blued action, and camo pattern on the McMillan carbon fiber stock didn't blend well, so I stripped the gun and put a Duracoat finish on it. It's my first time using Duracoat, and I have to admit, it's an easy paint to work with.





Next up, might as well paint the scope before I mount it.

Scope mounted, bore sighted, and the level plumbed. Next week I hope to get down to the range, run it through some break in cycles of shoot / clean / shoot, and then sight in with some factory ammo. I'll keep using factory ammo until I have around 100 pieces of once fired, then I'll work up a hunting load.

It should work well with two legged vermin also.
