I'm really digging that camo/color scheme.
Thanks! It was stupid easy to do. I liked the Manners Black Forest camo but didn't have Manners money and I wanted less black showing... just enough to show contrast between the 2 colors. I spent wayy more time deciding between Aervoe colors than I did doing the actual painting. I did screw up when painting the barreled action and touched it before it was dry but it's hard to see in the picture and I was more concerned with rust protection than looks.

Some of these rifles look like 'Modeling Rifles'....they spend all day posing in front of the camera...but do they get any serious work done? They are beautiful....and I do get jealous. I think the big thing for me....is I can't take a good picture to save my life.

Nice rifles. Based on shooting a Tikka I bought for the first time I'd be pretty dang surprised if that Tikka didn't shoot as well as your custom. The CTR I bought and put a little cash into shoots every bit as well as my Seekins Havak or Bergara Ridgeback.

hell yea...a scope with character!
I painted it a year or so ago, and it has been sitting on my Mk13 build which has been going back and forth to the range, competitions and just general in and out of the bag. It might get a repaint later on this year.

Looks like he has good form !!
This was his first time to the range this year. But he knows how to handle the FX, thats for sure. He has shot around a 1000 pellets with that rifle last year and I think we will be able to shoot at least another 1000 this year.

Actually I'm not sure, I originally had a budget of $1000, but following the input of several members I'm going to wait until I have closer to $1500, at that point I'll try to figure it out.
What kind of shooting this rifle will be coming?
1500,00$ you will have few very nice scopes in US ;)

Are you a veteran? If so you can get a brand new MK5HD from Leupold. Any one of the three magnification ranges. I've got a 3.6-18 and a 5-25 and they're great scopes. For that price I don't think you can do much better.

100% t&p unfortunately. I'm new to the whole VA thing as I literally just received my letter a few weeks ago and am learning new things everyday.

I'm assuming I contact them directly, verify my status, and order?
