Mechanics: The action functions correctly, but it should be noted that the Jewell trigger is approximately 2 oz. and closing the bolt too sharply will trip the sear. The trigger guard has play at the front, but its mounting screw is snug. We did not fire this rifle. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This rifle comes with the additional .204 Ruger barrel as described.
Our Assessment: This is a custom target rifle built by well respected gunsmith Dave Sink in North Carolina. The rifle was made with Benchmark barrels on a Stiller Predator action all bedded in an H-S Precision fiberglass stock. Finished off with a 2 ounce (!) Jewell trigger, this is a set that will make for a great benchrest gun that would also be death on your local varmint population. According to information provided by the consignor, both are set up with standard chamber neck diameter, 1:11″ twist for use with lighter projectiles and were broken in with a strict “shoot/clean/shoot/clean” procedure. Whether you’ve got a groundhog problem or just want to poke little holes in paper very close together, this ought to be a great rifle for the lucky winner. Please see our photos and good luck!
