     Everything that could be done to bring out the best of this rifle was done to the best of my abilities.  Everywhere a milled steel item could have been used, was replaced with the stamped version.  The scope assembly was modified to accommodate a 4-12×40 rifle scope with side focus from 10 yards out to infinity. With a full magazine and plastic oiler,"filled" along with the pull through, the rifle balances directly on the King Screw. With all the lightened metal bits, including a sear from a No5 and the stock bolt that has been reduced in diameter, the rifle weighs in at a scant 10.5 lbs fully loaded minus a sling. The cocking piece, trigger and sear contact points has been polished with diamond impregnated jewelers rouge that allow for one smooth pull until let off is reached with a consistent 2.5 lb of trigger pull. Barrel bedding was done at the muzzle using a copper shim. According to CMP/NRA specifications, it is neither a service rife nor a target rifle. I will refer to it as a Rogue Rifle and in a class all by itself. So, without further adieu.....Hug.....

Nice looking rifle. I always enjoy see your builds.
I noticed that you modified a modern front sight blade. What tools did you use to do that?

Thank you for the compliment. 
The front sight blade is a Gold Bead LE3/28 from Lyman.

I had to go back to the smaller 3-9×32 scope. I could not get the one pictured to focus properly and it would not keep a horizontal hold. I just went back to what I know works and left it alone...
