I was in the process of aquiring all the componants to build a .577 double when an unfortunate chain of events happened. All the items that I purchased haven't showed up. Until I get the items, or should I say if I get the items, I am out a bit of money. In the mean time a friend offered me a nice Kodiak double in 8 x 57. It will be the perfect little brother to my Kodiak 45-70. If the 8 x 57 version is anything like the 45-70, I will be thrilled with it. I am hoping to take possession of this in a few weeks.
