    Wow, its a beauty. Mike makes some great shooting and awesome looking rifles. Shot against a couple of them in Field Target last week in Atlanta. Both beat my butt. Lol Well, most of it was me. My RAW is shooting great. I have tried a Thomas for a couple of shots.  Someday I’d like shoot an entire match with one.

    That is a second kind of cool. Congratulations! It looks absolutely exquisite, and I hope with performance and enjoyment to match. :)

    Thanks!

    i look forward to trying it out.  I think I finally figured out how to load the pellet.  😂

    Still trying to figure out how to switch the rifle between 12 and 20 fpe, and which it is set on.

    Also not sure what kind of rests or other supports I should buy.

    And do I need to set up different focus wheels for different magnification levels? 

    These are all just part of the fun. 😁

    Congrats Pew. she's a beauty for sure. I'm sure Mike sent you the extra jet scew in a plastic bag. If you have the longer screw in the bag then the short 20 fpe jet screw is probably in the gun.

    Look forward to your progress!

    Excellent, it is strikingly familiar to one of mine!  You obviously have great taste.   Kidding aside, I’m sure you will be very pleased with your purchase. They are works of art that match performance with looks. 

    Now, on a more serious note, tell me more about the case you are using.  Looks like something I should consider.

    The case is a storm im3100.  It’s shown with the middle solid foam layer removed.  I will have to mark it and cut it with a jigsaw.  This case is almost too small for the 15 inch carbine.  And taller rings would pose a problem, I think.  I’m using a Larue QD mount.

    I will check it out   It looks like a tight fit and I have a large wheel on my scope so might need a different size

    Is that the 15” barrel?  Mine is 18”.

    Yes, 15 inch.  You would need the Pelican Storm IM3300 or Pelican 1750, I think?  Main difference is the storm is waterproof even fully submerged, and the pelican 1750 comes with pluck foam middle layer instead of solid foam.

    Shoes! Shoes! Anyone can shoot if they can find their lucky shoes. Have you seen yours lately?…… I have a Seal Team coming for them. LOL

    Seriously Ray, I know you would like to try a great looking rifle like Pew just got from Mike.
