Looks a lot like Sniper 101s, 243 build. Nice suppressor! I would love to have a 308 lake that.
Biggorilla you build is pretty sweet too

Great looking gun. I like the camo. I'm not a black stock fan. The only reason I haven't painted my savage stock yet is because its got a rubber nonslip type coating. I hear that it doesn't last long and starts to peal. As soon as that starts to happen it'll sprout camo.

Well I am upgrading my savage .308, today I bought a vortex viper PST 6-24x50 mrad ffp scope that I'm gonna set in those nightforce rings... I can't wait to get it in!!! I'm also considering buying the attachment that will replace the top portion of my rear ring so I can get an angle indicator...

Farmer.
After you put a few rounds down range with the new scope please let me know what you think of it. I'm thinking about upgrading with that same scope. Thanks

Please tell more about the angle indicator. I've seen some that have a small level built in but I don't know if I seen something that actually indicates the angle. Sounds neat.

The ones I've seen are produced by nightforce... They 2 different mounting systems for it, one replaces the top section of nightforce rings, and the other mounts on a picatinny rail... It has a level in it that will indicate angle with the angle viewable with your nondominant eye... They make them for left and right side mounting...

I'm also thinking, if I like this vortex PST like I'm hoping I will, I'm going to get a vortex viper 6.5-20x44 pa md and put it on my ultra accurate white mosin 28/76... Read a few reviews about it and all were good, I also talked to SWFA and they told me all of tthe viper scopes have the same glass and all will track perfectly... Phenominal is the word they used for the vortex vipers... Then I guess ill move my sightron 4-16x42 to my m39 redo... If its the same glass and will track, seems $429ish will be a good price...

Farmer.
Don't rush and buy that Viper 6.5-20x44PA. CameraLandNY gets special runs of this scope made exclusively for him with the "extra wide" duplex reticle that he sells for $279. I have a few and love them. THe extra wide reticle is great. Gives you a very open field of view. He's out of them right now but gets new shipments like every 3 months. They sell out fast when he gets them.
