    I noted the rear ring is poorly mounted on the base.
    There are other photos that show it with the scope, and in fact the rear ring is off...
    Any update coming?

    Pedro,

    The ring hanging off the scope base was in boxing terms "A Rope a Dope". As in Mohamad Ali.

    It would never be shot that way. The scope was put on just for the photo.

    The one piece base will be installed before the rifle is tested.

    Here is a better look.

    Thanks Tony, and my question was more a rhetoric one, because it won't be shoot that way.
    Maybe I'm too picky, but even for just a photo, a better approach could have been taken.

    Breaking news

    The demand for High quality RFBR rifles continues.

    High Table JPAT-SPEC 2 has been sold to Mike Gross.

    Mike has expressed the desire to purchase High Table in the past.

    Larry Parsons, knee deep in High quality RFBR rifles, accepted Mike's offer and the deal is now done.

    With the new owner maybe we will see High Table at some matches.

    Congratulations to Mike. Good luck with the rifle.

    Larry, thank you to for allowing this rifle the opportunity to pursue the chance to make it in the sport Jeff built it for.

    This is a win for everyone concerned.

    Nice looking rifle. I'm sure Jeff builds a great gun, too.

    Butch,

    That is the knob that comes with the New Turbo actions. I agree that is the first thing that needs "customizing".

    I much prefer the tear drop or the cone like these.

    Simple question...
    It's clear a longer bolt arm on the V3 Turbos. Is this due to a more lever to overcome the three lugs, or is it just design?

    Length is fine- the knob is terrible.

    Bolt Knob

    Butch/Tony,

    The bolt knob length, by design, provides more leverage to facilitate easier lifting of the bolt. Sorry, some don't like the shape we've never received any complaints or negative feedback about the knob shape, until now. Changing the profile of the knob is an easy change as we manufacture the knobs in house. The bolt handle stems are threaded 5/16"-24 and there are literally dozens of aftermarket bolt knobs available, take a look at Bruno's Shooting Supply for example. We do offer an aluminum teardrop knob in lieu of the longer cylindrical knob, a customer just needs to specify their preference when placing an order.

    Best Regards, Anthony DiOrio

    J-PAT Spec Rifle schedule

    Tony, this list looks like it may need to be updated. Several months ago I told Jeff that unfortunately, because of current financial reasons, I was withdrawing from the list. This is a big disappointment to me but I am sure someone will provide a great home for #10.

    Just noticed this thread a couple days ago. Larry Parsons was gracious enough to give me the 13th spot, grateful that he did this.

    Since then spot 13 has been switched to spot 8.
