Two weeks and counting

Got a call from CDI Precision Gunworks today, finalized my order, they verified all parts are on hand, my rifle should be on the way back in about 10 days.

Really looking forward to the conversion to a conventional mag for the Ruger American Ranch in .300 B/O. Pics and range reports to follow when she returns.

Waiting....waiting....waiting....

    Took a chance with these folks, couldn't find much about them but Midway carries their bottom metal so I figured they are ok. Stock inletting and mounting is free with purchase if you buy direct, what a deal! We will see how the finished product performs.

    Right at $335 with shipping back to me with 2 mags.

    They've been around a while.

    I'm interested to see the conversion.

    Will post when I get her back. The conversion will make the rifle
    As it should have been from the start, Ruger are you listening?

    Interesting. The American mags seem to get a lot of bad press.

    No I put the new stock on the rifle, they said no need for the old one unless I wanted it done too, which I don't.
    The old stock can stay as factory, I didn't like the feel of it.

    They are pretty cheesey! I had one break apart in my hands loading it.

    Like the rifle itself, I think Ruger went too far trying to make an inexpensive rifle.

    I think I remember seeing a picture of it in a Boyd's stock now. The factory stock sucks gopher balls.

    I agree. The .308 I looked at recently had a nice action and trigger, but everything else just felt cheap.

    Then my eye fell on the used carbine on the wall above it.......... :devil:
