Cheap Light All weather Hunting rifle based on Ruger American

i will be documenting the new rifle im building here.

it started out as a brand new Ruger American Stainless Compact in 308, the reason for the Caliber is that i already use 308 and have a Suppressor waiting on approval.
The suppressor is a silencerco harvester.

so first step was to remove the Barrel.
i made a barrel removal tool and took of this brandnew never shot barrel :



Here is a link to the Gunsmithing forum if somone wants more info on how i build it: Building a Ruger American Barrel Wrench

to be continued..

while i gave the Barrel to a Friend i continued on the Sling, i wanted the rifle to be comfortable to carry.. i carry barrel down across my back, i dont like being poked so since im left handed, the sling needed to be attached to the right side of the rifle, plus i wanted the rifle to ride high.

the solution where Grovtec Pushbutton Swivels, the problem was that the Ruger american Stock is hollow.. i found a solution for that..



here is a video of the whole process:



later a found out about these:

that would have saved a lot of work...

Next step is the Cheekrest, but that will need a few Days until i have the parts

FYI right now i have 350$ in the rifle:
299 for the rifle
20 for the transfer
15 for the sling
15 for the Grovtec Pushbutton bases.
