Seth G. of West Virginia sent us some photos of his recent 223 Rem VLD build using a Shilen Rifles Inc. barrel and a Zermatt Arms Origin action purchased from Northland Shooters Supply. He paired his build with factory ammo.

Here are the components Seth used on his build:

  • Zermatt Arms Origin- Right hand/Short action with a beadblast finish and a spiral extended bolt knob
  • 26” Shilen stainless Select match- Small shank- heavy palma- 223 Rem VLD- 7 twist with muzzle thread
  • NSS squared and trued barrel nut
  • Forster headspace gauges
  • TriggerTech Special Stainless trigger
  • KRG Whiskey 3 Comp. chassis

Here is what Seth had to say about his build:

“Here’s a picture of my build (minus bipod and spigot), and a picture of the group it shot today. Factory Sig 77gr Elite Match. I have a few other boxes of factory ammo to try out but I’m already beyond extremely pleased, absolutely ecstatic. May end up developing handloads to see just how tight I can get it, but for now… EXTREMELY happy customer. Will be singing your praises for a while to come.”
