Q has a bolt action pistol at SHOT and Remington will be selling the 700 as a pistol. I'm really hot on the concept of the bolt action braced pistol. I took a long while warming up to the AR pistol, but I'm a fan now. Same concept in a bolt action sounds like as good a way to blow money as any.

Don't forget single shots. There's always a new way to blow money. :mrgreen:

What stock/grip is on that TC contender and where did you get it?

The pistol is CVA scout. The grip/adapter is 3-D printed by a guy using the name FarrowTech. https://farrow.tech/products/cva-scout- ... be-adapter It works well enough, but I didn't like the printing lines and the feel of the ABS plastic, so I sanded it down and put on a rubberized coating.

The brace is a SB Tactical SBA3 which comes with a six position tube. Until the ATF changes their opinion on shouldering a brace, you don't give up anything using the SBA3 compared to standard collapsible stock. I had every intention of SBRing this pistol, and still may at some point, but I'm in no hurry now.

I have to admit that I do a lot of stupid things for no other reason than I can or it’s fun. Putting a pistol brace on a bolt action would have to fall into the category of stupid fun because I can. :cry:

It won’t be a good pistol, and it won’t be a good rifle substitute. Kind of like taking the worst traits of both and combining them.

I see it as buying a potential 1000 yard MOA rifle, then throwing away the stock it came with and putting the barreled action in a rubber take off Hogue that most people are willing to give away. Nothing ruins a good rifle faster than a crappy stock.
300 Blackout, not just for sub-sonics.
