Just a Few Pics

Here are just a few pictures of my Tactical Rifles M40 .308

I'm no photographer so I'm sure I haven't done the gun justice

Remington 700 short action chambered in Rem. .308, hand lapped match chambered stainless barrel with recessed target crown. It's the Tactical Rifles M40 T7 stock. I'm not sure of the twist but I think it's 1:10

Yeah I love it. A buddy of mine had some cash problems and when he got the rifle he sold it to me. He never even got a chance to shoot it and he gave me a pretty good deal on it. I've had it for a couple of years and it's deadly accurate. Much more accurate than I am. I'm thinking of getting a second rifle from them chambered in .338 Lapua mag but its just so expensive to shoot. Thanks for the thumbs up

Would your friend also happen to say things like 'Oorah' and 'Yut'? Just curious.

How's the action and trigger on it?

The trigger and action are great. I took it out the other day just to run a little oil through it because it hasn't been fired in a while. I found myself laying on the floor looking out the back door just working the bolt and dry firing at stuff in the backyard. Everything about it is so smooth and the trigger pull is very effortless.

And yes he would say these things

Awesome. Give him an 'Oorah' for me, and enjoy the rifle. I'm genuinely jealous.

I'll give him the 'Oorah' for ya... he should be jealous. He bought a gun and never shot it. I offered and he told me he would rather never shoot it

That desert camouflage scheme doesn't blend in real well in suburbia.
