Old stock mod...

With my newly retired free time, I have been catching up on my fun shooting as opposed to my work related shooting. I reached deep in the safe and took out my first year production DPMS LR308. It has an adjustable Jard trigger in it set at 2#s and a JP for end.

The stock began as the original A2 before being cut and re-formed with Marine Tex. I am pretty sure this was done before the Magpul PRS series and surely before they did the 308 version. That and I didn't have $250 for one.

I added and fit an Accuracy Speaks (Derrick Martin) fully adjustable high power base plate.

Thought it may encourage some to just grab their tools and do something!

Very nice, Mike. We really enjoy shooting our cheap-0 S&W MP-15 5.56. My next rifle 'want' is a .308. Yours looks wonderful and ready for some reaching out to touch someone/something in the far distance.

Next you need to post some targets with ranges marked. That would get us fired up.

Very nice set up Mike. I agree with Gary, the 308 is a terrific round for reaching out.
