    Default Final Product: Caribou Assassin Gun

    HPIM2986.jpg

    My new toy. It will be perfect for the game 'Sneak up to the caribou and shoot 'em.' 34.25" extended, I dont have a scale but it feels a little under 7 pounds, maybe 6.5-ish. Have to thank AKBEE for giving me that Weaver K4 that now sits on it. Lu at The Ammo Can cut and re-crowned the barrel for a mere $50 and set up and boresighted the scope when I bought the scope rings. Such a nice, helpful guy over there, I encourage you to go buy up the pallets of ammo he always has in stock. The stock was $96 online. Total cost to convert from the original setup: $162

    This will be very functional for packing into and out of the walk in only area this fall. Even more importantly, it looks so dang cool, which as we all know, translates into better performance. Since it looks like a ninja gun, I'm assuming I will now walk with perfect stealth and awareness. Look out Nelchina herd!

    Now I'm starting to think maybe a 7mm-08 version next.

    You might want to add a hammer extender, looks like it might be hard to reach the hammer with the scope on. I had one on my NEF, it attaches to the hammer and lets you cock it from the side.

    Sweet looking rig!!!

    I've actually never had trouble getting to the hammer with my Encore. I have smaller hands so maybe other people would, but it's perfect for me.

    You are welcome- nice looking and practical set-up. I hope it shoots as well as it looks!

    Good looking setup sir!! Should be a fun little gun for tipping over some caribou. Just remember its just gotta work for you. I have something funky in the works myself, just gotta work for your uses. I hear ya on the small hands thing also. I have no problems with my dainty hands reaching the hammer on my scoped Encore either.
