    My ,25 RAW LRT arrived! I figured I would share a few pictures. It was complete right at twelve weeks like estimated by Rapid. I ordered the new right hand magazines for it also.  It’s fitted with a Sightron SIIISS1050X60LRMOA-H. I thought I would try out the Burris XTR Signature rings with adjustable MOA inserts.
    Now all I need to do is shoot it. With the weather terrible here and time constrains So far I’ve only ran two pellets through it to get a sense of how loud it is compared to my FX .22 Royale. It is louder but not that much.
    The workmanship is top notch from a visual perspective. I need to get some time with it to get an idea on everything else. It is nice to deal with a small company with owners that will answer questions also. Makes me feel comfortable with any issue or parts I may have/need in the future. Heck….. It even comes with spare o-rings.

    Beautiful rifle. Is that a real pelt? If so, what is it?

    Now that is what a wood stock should look like. 

    Real walnut with an attractive pattern. None of this fake laminate with strips of cheap wood glued together with a pattern painted on. I think that’s the nicest one I’ve seen from RAW.

    Very nice. Could you post the overall length and weight?
    Which SIII? The only one I know of that parallaxes down to 10yds. is the 2.5 – 10x, which I have and really like.

    Very nice rifle.  I too like that walnut wood grain. I’m also very curious the overall length and weight.
    Thanks

The SIII 10-50 x 60 FT has parallax down to < 9 yards (at least mine does) but maxes out around 60 yards for range finding. As you’d imagine, the wheel moves huge amounts for the first few yards, but at the far end its easy to distinguish 50, 55 and 60 yards.

    I like walnut and I like laminate. The wood used for laminates is actually of pretty good quality to be free of irregularities. Combined with epoxy binder it is very dense and stable, good qualities for target rifles. Good walnut is very pretty and relatively light. Basically it’s a matter of taste and function.

    Ah, you’re right, I forgot about the FT 
models.

    From RAW’s specs. If you want weight with scope I can weigh it. It is on the heavy side. It is as long as my trap shotguns.
    Weight 9lbs 8oz
    Length 47 1/4 inches

    Beautiful RAW!
    I hope to own one someday.
    For now I will have to make do with my Air Arms 510.

    Is that walnut a premium stock?

No. I was originally invoiced for a wood upgrade. When the time came for the build they said they did not have anymore wood they could justify selling me as an upgrade. So this is their normal priced wood. I think they did a good job on the wood choice personally.

    It is a beauty! I am curious as to how it compares to your royale both in handling and ballistics. Is this going to be a hunting gun or target gun?

even better.
    When it does come time for me to pull the trigger on one hopefully they will have some upgrade wood in stock especially if they are considering this one as not worthy.😊
