    Be careful when messing with these bi-pods, they can bite.
    Got one stuck on the web next to my left thumb yesterday. No stitches, but close. Anyway, getting there except for a sling with this one. My Winchester " Macaroni" will do very nicely. Hope to get out and do some comparison shooting in the next few days. This one has an as new Winchester barrel and the other is a Bula NM med weight.

    My IDF replica is basically complete now. Just needs a trigger job and the gas cylinder unitized.











    So now it just needs a trigger job, a unitized gas cylinder, and fitting a gas lock so it times up correctly, but otherwise its basically finished. I do not have a range report on it yet, but I'll take it out sometime this summer and see how it shoots. Just an fyi post regarding a replica of somewhat unusual vintage sniper rifle.
