Congrats.

What is the invoice amount and the premium amount you have paid to the dealer.

Also please provide the price of cartridges.

Very nice rifle vivekpeter.
It looks like you got a decent piece of wood in the stock. When you get a chance to shoot it, please post some photos of your targets. BTW, can I borrow your Kenneth Anderson omnibus after you are done with it. :)

rraju,
Those silver colored casings are the Winchester Supreme load. It is nickel plated brass.

@sainikji - The invoice amount for the rifle was 91600 and the amount I paid was around 96000 INR. And the cartridges, the Winchester cost me 250 INR a pop, and SB was 140, excluding the taxes.

@ankur - It is not an LED aiming device (Laser to be precise), but a TAC light that fits onto the barrel.

@xl_target - thanks for your compliment sir :) I have a Leupold scope, which I will be fixing onto the rifle, and I will zero it tomorrow. I will definitely post the pictures or maybe upload some video. And sure, you can have my KA omnibus once I have finished reading it. I have JC omnibus too.. :)

Some more photos. Fixed the Leupold scope using Savage Scope Rings, and home made rails. Zeroed it using a bore-sighter. But yet to shoot it.... :oops:
