We have a lot fewer active members than we did in 2008, but apparently a lot more NFA stuff now among those of us who are left. :twisted:

Hey that Lyman looks familiar. Need to check the safe, I may have forgotten (or lost in a boating accident).

And the latest Franken-rifle. Not sure about the stock. It’s on there mostly so the rifle still fits in a case.

Looks like a LaRue RAT stock. I rather like them, but they are pretty heavy.

It is a bit heavier than the average adjustable stock, but that’s the least of my worries on this rifle. Only down side to the RAT is that it pulls off the tube rather easily when adjusting the LOP.

There is a lock on the stock that prevents the pull ring from being pulled back far enough to release the stock from the buffer tube. You must be in the unlocked position. Look for a knob that can be rotated 90 degrees at the front of the stock under the buffer tube.

Thank you! I will take a look.
