I'm resurrecting this post from the dead to update....
I've been slowly picking at this gun since turkey season ended, and hopefully a few more weeks will have me ready to send some rounds downrange.
I may have done things backwards, but I went ahead and ordered a SWFA SS 12x42 scope, Burris Signature rings, and an EGW 20MOA rail. The logic being that I could at least shoot it in its current stock with these things (hasn't happened, but I digress). The rail needed bedded, so I tried my hand at that, and believe it was successful. The rings and scope installed easily, so the next test for those will be on the range.
After frustrating myself researching stocks, I've got a Boyd's Pro Varmint on order. Yes, there's better options out there, but it had the look and color I wanted, and I plan to install pillars and bed the action anyway. The bedding compound and pillars are on their way also, so hopefully I'll have all the components in a week or so. This will be my first shot at bedding, so I'll be taking my time and hopefully will do a serviceable job.
I bought this rifle figuring it would become a fun project, and thus far I'm not disappointed. I'm a little apprehensive about the upcoming bedding job, but there's lots of good information out there to steer me in the right direction. I hope to have another positive update in a few weeks.
