GMA Kurz Action with Krieger Barrell

Image 30 of 32

Gunmaker Gene Simillion began this project with a GMA Kurz action. GMA fabricated a special magazine box for their action to fit the .223 cartridge. According to Gene, the GMA response when delivering the box was “never again.” Simillion fitted a Krieger barrel to the action and installed a quarter-rib with one standing leaf rear sight. He machined the action for Smithson quick detachable rings, fitted a barrel band front, and color casehardened the safety shroud, grip cap and rear sling swivel stud. He stocked the rifle with a superb stick of Turkish walnut and checkered it in a point pattern 26 LPI with mullered borders. There are no flies on this rifle. Photo courtesy of Gene Simillion
