Very nice. The straight trigger is an interesting choice on a hunting rifle.
I shoot cases with a belt because I feel the other cartridges need to pull their trousers up.

yea, the straight face trigger, might take a bit to get use to.  Now I'm wondering, if they will offer the spirial barrel flutes as an option though the custom shop??  I'm thinking about placeing an order though the custom shop, but I would have no problem waiting a few months if they are going to offer spirial barrel fluting as an option.  8)

That is a nice rifle rifle. I also like the look of a fluted barrel when done right. Straight style triggers are nothing new and have been around for over 200 years. I used to build flintlock long rifles ("Kentucky" or "Pennsylvania" rifles) and some of the originals had "double set triggers" which were two triggers, one right behind the other, a curved one in back and a straight one in front. While the curved rear trigger actually released the sear and the front straight one "set" the rear by cocking a small spring loaded hammer, I think the idea of straight triggers came from these old systems. Those old triggers were extremely light when set (I believe as light as 1/2lb) and I wouldn't be surprised if the term "hair trigger" originated from them.
Come and take it.
