Default Ol Girl got a make over

My trusty 280AI has been the go to gun for my boys and I for several years and was showing the wear. Cerekote was best up, stock was worn and scope was in need of upgrade.





So I added an over size bolt knob, she got fresh cerekote, a new Leupold 6.5-20 LRP and a special order McMillan A-3 naked carbon fiber stock. The guys at APR then did their sponge camo paint job that left some bare carbon fiber showing.




I really like the look and the rifle feels much better with the new stock.
