A bishop blaster is born!

HogginHoggin MemberPosts: 413 Member
A bishop blaster is my new coined term for a ridiculously oversized pistol. :)

I started with a Remington M7 non designated.

It's just a wee little 223 1-8

Barrel tapered in house from 1.2 to 1" at the muzzle.

Made my stock....I'm no stock maker but it will work.

Next to the range!

    I've come to realize that most guns Ernie shoots are functionally sound but obnoxiously ugly. Just say'n.

    Ditto. I made this one blaze orange so I can see if he picks it up and stop him before he breaks something.

    How long is the barrel? Just curious. I have been pondering ordering another barrel from MGM for the Encore pistol. Going with the little 223 for inexpensive plinking, varminting and maybe deer. 1:8 twist. Just haven't settled on a barrel length yet.

    Not to derail your thread. Was just wondering what your barrel length is.

    The deer I took this year at 140 yards with my .223 Contender pistol was with a 13" barrel. Just FYI.

    Awesome. Thanks guys.

    My 454 Casull barrel is a 13" bull with integral brake. I find it pretty handy and manageable. Was thinking of going the same with the 223, or go 14 - 15" with a heavy factory profile and brake. Decisions, decisions....

    I think I went 1-7" twist with mine.

    What trigger did you use in the Model 7 action and where did you get it?

    To me it looks as good or better than store bought. Seems like the grip angle and size should handle recoil well.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    I figure 1:8 is a good compromise twist. And all my ARs are 1:9. Figure if I go 1:8, I can go with a little longer bullet if I want, but I can still effectively make use of the nearly 1,000 rounds worth of components I have to load using 55 grain Speer bullets I already have.

    Besides those classic 1911 types like Bernie and Zee have (which I really like mostly based on nostalgia and curiosity) I'll never get this SP thing. That's just a rifle without the shoulder stock that would actually make it fun to shoot... :uhm:

    You mean like the custom ones I did. :)

    Rifles are too easy.

    Enzo, you weren't at the last shoot where I had my 7mmIHMSA XP. It's got a lighter barrel profile and a mid-grip stock, since it was built for shooting from the creedmoore position.
    It's quite handy to shoot off-hand.
    Smaller case, no LOUD muzzle brake, lighter and much more pleasant than Six's XP he brought the last time he came.

    Good looking specialty pistol.
    Looking forward to the range report.

    The bishop blaster is getting close. Shooting great.

    Doing a little stock shaping here and there to get it just right.
