Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

Still enjoying this little rifle, not getting a ton of range time, but enough to keep from going nuts.

Re: Lone Survivor?

I was concerned that this one wouldn't be good, but pretty much everybody has said its great. Looks like we'll have to go catch it in the theater.

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

OK, I got back to the range for some chrono work. I haven't been able to figure out a magazine, yet. Every time I get close, it looks like I can't do it without cutting into the bottom of the receiver. One more try before I commit that fully. I only have ss195, 197, and 192 at my disposal to test. I...

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

The barrel does not have to cost that much. Fluting adds $150, threading for the brake was $70, stainless adds some cost too. I think the basic barrel could have been had for closer to $250. The project could be done for much less money, the original SPS-V stock would have worked just fine.

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

Do you have an aproximate total of what you spent? Also contact info for your smith? If I could simply buy a finished gun instead of having one built that would be better of course. I still think I can come up with a magazine well adapter for this that would take FiveSeven mags. Required stuff: Gun...

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

The gun was built by well-known gunsmith Lee Baker. He's been in the game for a long time, and is a very talented and skilled man. Its an honor to own a gun he built. I'm actually bummed I didn't have him build a brake, since thats the only part I know of that he actually puts his name on. The HS Pr...

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a62/242brick/rifle/70214.jpg Well, its finally done, I got the rifle back on Friday, and fortunately got to head right to the range. After a few shots, I got her pretty quickly sighted in at 50 yards with factory 40 grain V-Max. I moved out to 100 yards, and things ...

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

So how much is this little project gonna cost all said and done? I'm trying to not think about that! :lmao: Honestly, I've traded and sold so many parts it will be hard to figure out total cost. Once the gunsmith gives me a bill, I'll try to put a dollar value on it. I will own the reamer and gauge...

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

Its a brand new Remington 700, that was chambered in 17 Fireball, but only fired at the factory. I got it for a great price, cheaper than I could find anything used locally. It is the SPS-V, so I sold off the stock and made some money to put toward the all black HS Percision with full aluminum block...

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

I'll share any info I can provide. I'm also more than happy to loan out my reamer and headspace gauges once the gunsmith is done with them. I was also thinking about trying to adapt fiveseven mags, we'll see once the action is barreled and the H-S Percision stock.

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

I agree about the pics, but I felt it more important to get the barrel in his hands before he closed for the day. I went straight from UPS to his shop, and just beat his closing time (he has crazy hours 6am-2ish). Tons of pics to follow when the thing is finally done.

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

Well, the barrel arrived on Wednesday, and the whole box of parts is at the gunsmith now. Its his busy season, so I'm not too optimistic about getting the finished gun back soon. However, the barrel looked absolutely awesome. I'll definately be picking up another Krieger, if the barrel prints half a...

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

Keep us posted! Out of curiosity, what did you specify for the barrel? Twist? Chamber specs? I went nuts. Its a Krieger in the Remington varmint profile, 20", fluted, threaded for 1/2x28 break, 1:14 twist, with no chamber. My smith will do all the chambering, one the barrel arrives, some time after...

Re: 5.7x28 bolt action

Update. Sorry for the delay guys, I was holding out for FNH to step up and sell one, but another SHOT come and gone with no love. So, I ordered my barrel, reamer, gauges, and stock this week. The action goes to the smith this week for blueprinting and bolt conversion. Unfortunately, the barrel lead ...

Re: Five-Seven Throwing Brass

In the rifle world, the Mini-14 is the undisputed champ. Before changing out the gas bushing mine could eject brass 25 feet plus straight out.

I have Levang comps on all my ARs and my AR57. I really think its a great product, and the AR57 is very comfortable to shoot sound wise.

Re: Remington 700 in 5.7x28

I'm working on it. I got a brand new 700 SPS-V in .17 Fireball for a donor (I made a great trade with my local gun shop for the 17, I should be able to sell off the V stock and heavy barrel to help fund the build, plus I got the SPS rebate from Remington). I just need to make some more extra cash to...

Re: 5.7x28FN Snake Charmer!

That sir is awesome. For my current project, I need to pick your brain. What is the twist rate of the barrel? What loadings do you intend to run through the rifel. Do you think 20" is taking full advantage fps wise, or could a little more barrel add up to some more velocity?
