Finished it up last night.

Installed trigger springs from a Marlin 2000A target rifle, brought it down. The stock trigger was something stupid like 5 pounds.

Shimmed the scope up a little bit to get it about .5mm higher off the barrel, it was too close for comfort before.

Tossed on a pivot bipod.

Taking it back to the range tomorrow to get the scope zeroed back in.
