It has been several years since I took a #1 down. This is my latest and only #1 right now. This is just how I traded for it, complete with the heavy and worthless 6-18x50. This 220 Swift is a real tack driver. It would shoot 1" groups with factory loads despite having to lift the gun out of the bags to reload then having to try to get back in the same position for the next shot. Later, when I shot it from a rest that was tall enough to let me work the lever while leaving the gun in place, the groups shrank to about 3/8" for 3 @ 100 yds. I finally got around to taking some pictures tonight of what is under the forearm. First, the brass shim and screw. Is this stock? I don't recall seeing this on others I had. I know the bedding and fully floating forearm are smithed. The glass looks like hell, but it works apparently. Also, the trigger on this one is nice and crisp and releases at under 2 lbs. Will a factory trigger go that low or are there some tinkered with parts in there as well?
It shoots good now, but I am tempted to remove the shim and try it full floated. Of course, the groups may open up then and I may have a time testing different tension on the shim to get it back to where it is today.
