Merry Christmas all, I wonder what you are wishing for Christmas.
I would love to try a new magic Muller if Santa is reading, as I just can not get one.
I am an equipment junkie, always have been with my hobbies, I still have all my rock climbing gear.
Barrels, Stocks, triggers, scopes, and tunners are pretty well known, tried and tested. This year I have been lucky to play with some new actions. I sold my Baitys Falcon and Blackhawk rifles and built up my current rifle on a 3 lug Turbo. Its tough to use with the heavy bolt lift but I can not fault its performance and I have not done a thing too it. I have listened to one of Australias most experienced shooters tell me of the many hours he he had to put in blue printing his Turbo and it does shoot amazingly well. Then I read with interest on a USA website the trouble Ben had with his, I must have got lucky with mine but I will use the off season to strip the bolt and inspect the internals.
I have had a lot to do with Stiller 2500X actions importing and building the first ones in Australia and I love them. In my opinion they have the highest build quality and are the current go to action, but also are the most expensive. However I like 3 lug actions.
We do now have other options, with the Holeshot Arms Trident and team 10X X3L. The Trident is out of Jerry Stillers new factory and is a 3 lug version on the 2500X. I have had a close look at 2 of these and built 1 up and I am impressed, same high quality with an extra lug but still a high price tag. The 10X I have wanted to try for years but could never get 1 exported, but this year I got one. I have not had the time to build it up yet and maybe I will just sell it however it looks the part and is a much better price.
So what surprise would you like to find under your Christmas tree?
