    G'day Fellas.

    BB, I will do my best to try attend the Dallas "shin-dig".
    Look forward to seeing you and all others there, and also looking forward to all the free drinks Phil will be buying me !

    Spike, I don't know much of the tech aspects of the V.C rifles but yes you are correct in recognizing this particular frame as light, small and trim.
    I particularly like the way it carries and balances for shooting.

    In the process of balancing V.C places a small lead weight threaded on two screws and fixed in to the hollow of the butt-stock.
    It is quite an easy job of removing, which I did, reducing the over-all weight of the gun down to 9lb 10, which for me is a perfect balance of carry/shoot.

    P.T.

    Ken is great and so are the guys from Verney/Carron! I think you'll be very happy. Mine has the palm swell and I was very iffy on that....small hands......but it seems no problem and is easy to hang onto.

    Sounds like you pretty much have it covered, but I might suggest an articulated front trigger. Can save a bit of knuckle whacking if your hands get sweaty.

    Best of luck with yours!

    JTEX, everything you say Ken and the fellas at V.C is right on the money.
    They all made the process so easy and fun, no grief or problems what-so-ever.

    I am VERY satisfied with the end result, this is a very well built, accurate and comfortable to shoot rifle.

    Happy hunting,

    Paul.
