Just brought her home last night. Her name is Judy and she weighs 11.25 pounds when she's full.

Actually my new rifle came in and I'm stoked.

LRB Arms M1A: Drop forged receiver. Machined, heat treated and finished to USGI specs. Wilson Chrome-lined NM-quality GI-contour barrel. Mine was built with 100% H&R parts (except the barrel). Even the rear sight is H&R. LRB said they like to keep the same maker in a rifle, so if they happen to use a Winchester oprod, they will try and fit a Winchester bolt and other parts, but they usually end up with a hodgepodge. He was suprised they had enough parts from a single maker for my rifle and I am glad I got a "thoroughbred". :lol: Each one is handbuilt, these are near custom rifles and the customer service is great.

Guaranteed 2.5 MOA, but anecdotal evidence seems to indicate that these are more like 2 to 1.5 MOA BEFORE accurization in USGI trim. About the same price as a Fulton, but I think I got a better rifle.

USGI stock with cartouche is what it rides in. I'm going to fill the selector holes with a Sparrowhawk dummy selector. It's better than the Fulton "selector" as it uses a demilled connecting arm to REALLY complete the look.

Enough of me blabbing. Pics:
