First Strike. Wood, and brass...
 
What a combination.

Question for either of you fine gents.
Any chance of ever seeing one roll off your work bench eventually?
Conversion maybe.
Thinking of the ultimate sniper rifle. Something that has old school written all over it. That's kinda what I'm leaning towards.
Would love to get your take on this.

The feed can't feed FS rounds because of their skirts. But otherwise, something like that but a lot more cleanly done is what G&L is very good at.

He already did well over a year ago.

I tried to have a build done from Bret and Jake for a first strike KBA in SS, but a problem with the first strike rounds is that they need a slight overbore, and that would entail a .686-.688 bore size. As you could imagine, that would be pretty inefficient if you were using small bore paint in conjunction with the larger bore FS rounds. I don't think underboring FS rounds is a good idea, but I could be wrong.

I don't see this as a problem for a KP, as a conversion is what I'm after. A bolt, and a slot for a FS. Or maybe just a bolt. I'm open to suggestions.

Bret did an interesting revolver conversion. There are pics that exist, I do not have them

I did a FS brass bolt action KP, then sold it to Hooligan. I'll try to grab pics.

edit: Here are the pics from before I added a proper stock

I kinda like it better that way. Looks like Camille kinda!

All those poor chopped up rifle stocks on that other forum make me cry. :(
