My son Cole turns 21 next week and I wanted to give him something thoughtful and something he could pass down to his son.....So I decided to build him a rifle....I contacted Defiance actions and had them build an action with his Birthdate as the serial number and the plan was put into motion.....See below
Defiance deviant action ( nitride coated )
Proof 8 twist 24 inch barrel
Timney CE set at 1.5 lbs
Manners EH-5A stock
For load development it will be topped with a leupold VX-6 4-24-52
I can't say enough about Eric at Axis Works his work is truly amazing. The fit and finish on the rifle is unbelievable.....

Dave, nice to see the finished product!!! Looks awesome. Any idea what it weighed without the scope?

No but when I get a chance I'll weigh it....Do you by chance still have that die set you were trying to get rid of....
