Precision CNC Machining
ONE Cool Rifle
Below are some pictures of the completed rifle assembly (minus the barrel). The barrel was being chambered at the time the pictures were taken.
Rifle Details from Jerry, who designed the rifle on his
All right, here's the skinny. I was walking through the shot show last January, and I saw this awesome bulpup rifle in the German section, a DSR-1 (featured on the current cover of Gun's & Weapons for Law Enforcement) I always wanted to build an aluminum stock rifle, so the wheels started turning. I have AutoCad so I designed it all on the computer screen, where it can be built to exact dimensions. Then I found the link to DC tech and their CNC mill.
It all started as a 6061 T6 quarter-inch wall 2" tube, turned and slotted with milled flats. The rest of it kind of evolved. The long weaver rail on the support tube allows the whole thing to hang off a bipod (see link) or you can rest it on the adjustable forearm/handpiece. A third leg screwed into the bottom rear gives you a tripod, or benchrest bags work great.
Inside the 1.5" i.d. tube is a Nesika 1.47" stainless action. The barrel is 26.5" 12-twist stainless Kreiger fluted heavy-Palma contour--soon to be chambered .308 match. A Holland muzzle break is waiting to be mounted.
The whole unit is a meter long (39") and weighs 20lbs. The scope is a Night Force 5-15-50mm.
When my wallet recovers in a couple months, I'll have it anodized and chambered, and will send some finished shots.

about the time I was hoping to build a custom aluminum stock rifle. I sent
him some drawings and he gave me a fair estimate, so I took a chance and
had him do it. The results were amazing, the guy is really talented. I got
his machined components yesterday and they are perfect! If you can draw
it, he can build it. Thanks David. More work coming your way.

This is the moveable forearm on stainless steel rails.
