Default A4 Project Rifle

I picked up a Smith Corona barreled action some weeks ago for $335 with the intention of putting one of the Redfield A3 bases on it and seeing if I’d indeed like to own an A4-gery after having acquired various parts earlier this year. My earlier project rifle for the A4 build was a Remington with an A4 stock but with an 03 barrel and a set of Lyman peep sights attached to the side of the receiver. I had planned to send that in to Chuck to get the base installed but something always seemed to come up. Anyways, the SC was already tapped for the Redfield base, so after visiting a gunsmith to complete the tapping of the front hole I installed the base, put a real A4 bolt in it and the action into the A4 stock, mounted a Weaver K2.5 on it and it seemed to come together very well.

I’ve shot it a couple times now and this morning I mounted a Bushnell Elite 4200 in some high rings and got some nice groups at 105 yards. I put the K2.5 back on and shot another good group, but put it away as it was getting to my shoulder.

It might not be correct but it sure shoots good!

A blend of old and new, with good shooting results.
