Pulling parts for next build Bula Defense Systems M21 DMR.

Ok, so after the Starship Troopers build it's time for something just a little more conventional. Parts are sourced from mostly LRB and Bula Defense System. All parts except the stock are new.

Bula Defense Systems M21 DMR receiver with Bula bolt and op rod.

LRB/Criterion Medium weight 22" barrel 6.5 Creedmoor in 1-8.

LRB Unitized gas system.

LRB muzzle brake and front sight.

USGI M1 rear sight.

SAI Trigger group. One of the cheap ones from KB international.

Stock is USGI birch from one of the recent Dupage M14 parts kit sales.

Looks good Art! Been looking at the Bula Defense Systems M21 DMR receiver, like it! Selected a scope yet?

I have a couple dozen, or more , here to choose from. Probably a MK4 8.5 -25. They seem to do a good job.

Art, if I wanted to build one just like it, what would the 'rough' cost of parts be?

Also did you glass/steel bed it?

Roughly $2875. with scope and rings.

No bedding. I am not a believer. For my real precision stuff, I use JAE or other chassis.
I have a bunch of rifles in USGI stocks and as long as I can keep the wood tight, they will stay that way.
