    rputzbach,

    If you see your friend ask him to put up some pictures of Spec 8. The one I have does not do the rifle justice.

    Black Death SPEC 5

    I still think that is a terrible name. Just too spooky for me. But one can't deny how effective it has been at slaughtering the competition.

    If you look at the pic you can see Black Death does not have the engine turning (jewelling) that most of the other Spec rifles had.

    I guess with a name like that Bill didn't want to make it too pretty.

    There is another Spec rifle that didn't have the jewelling. I'm trying to get a pic of it.

    Rembrandt - Glen Hartjes

    Rembrandt is one of the most beautiful RFBR rifles I've ever seen. It is not a Calfee Spec rifle but it is a Calfee rifle.

    I can't really describe just how pretty this rifle is but just ask anyone that has seen it. They will all say Wow! it is beautiful.

    For a bench rest rifle beauty is only skin deep.

    But Rembrandt isn't just pretty.

    Glen has shot a 2500 ARA target at the ARA Indoors Nationals, and a IR 50/50 card of 250 23Xs at the Triple Crown.

    That is getting it done when it counts.

    Hey Tony,
    Correct you are, Glen's rifle is a thing of beauty! I remember the first time I saw it, 2016 Iowa State ARA tournament at Voelker's club. Could hardly keep my eyes off of it.

    Hope to see you in Pontiac later in the summer.

    Later.....Scott

    Carolina Gold Spec 13

    This is the only pic I have of Spec 13. It was colorful to say the least. Now I see why Bill did not engine turn (jewel) the action.

    If anyone has better pics please post them.

    Merlin at it again!

    Todd Wooten won the 2020 Va. State (yards) tournament with Merlin.

    Some rifles and shooters just keep on going, going, and going.

    Congrats Todd!
