PRS Ready: custom built 1000m rifle

Today we look at a ground-up custom build by our Adelaide gunsmiths, capable of competition-grade performance at 1000m distances. The new owner and lucky shooter only needs to fit a scope, head to the field and step it out as far as their skill allows.
One of our specialties as gunmiths (and passions as shooters!) is precision and practical rifle series (PRS) style competition - so that formed the overall direction and theme of this custom rifle build. It had to be something easy to maneuver in movement competition with reliable performance and precision accuracy.

Little touches make big a difference

This CZ P09 is a beautiful example of how a small and simple modification can have a massive impact.

It was delivered to us in factory condition, including full standard black finish.

We finished the slide and safety release in Titanium Cerakote (leaving the frame as standard). Its a relatively inexpensive and quick change. But the results were impressive.

Our customer was thrilled to take home a custom and unique looking handgun.

Can “Tactical” be clean and minimal? Custom Rem Rifle Build

The term “tactical” conjures up many images (such as those extreme tacticool operators, who kit out their gear with enough rails to mount their frypan and camping equipment). In this custom build, tactical meets clean, classic and (dare we say it?) classy!

Raising scope elevation to 55MOA for 22LR with custom pic rail

Thanks to custom picatinny rail created in-house by our gunsmiths, this 22LR Lithgow Crossover now has the elevation adjustment to shoot out to 400m on dial-alone.

The rifle was set up for long-range competition use (precision rifle and field) but the factory mounting options didn’t support enough scope elevation. This was reducing the amount of elevation available, costing time and accuracy when finding and hitting the target.

So, our gunsmiths created a picatinny rail in 55MOA to allow maximum elevation adjustment. The rail was made to suit the length and size of receiver, with a cut out for the ejection port and drilled/tapped to suit. It was finished in black Cerakote.

With a trigger job to bring the factory trigger down to 1lb, it is ready for some accurate competition and field work.

Adler A110 magazine extensions

For some shooters, the factory 5 shot version of the Adler A110 lever-action shotgun does the job. But others have found a need for a larger capacity shotgun. Particularly in primary industries, pest management, hunting or  competition such as IPSC.

We manufacture and sell magazine extension kits for the Adler. The kits can increase you capacity by an additional 2 to 6 shots, depending on the size kit you opt for.  They are designed as DIY installations and do not require permanent modifications (they are reversible).

Adler plus 2 and plus5 side by firearm watermark
The ICEng Adler +5 (10 shot) extension tube is aligned with the 28″ barrel, while the shorter +2 tube lines up with the 20″ barrel. Both kits can be fitted to either the 20″ or 28″ model shotguns.

How does it work?

We experimented with single-piece tube designs when the Adler was released, but we found the wall of the tube in single piece styles had to be thinned out too much and was at risk of splitting. We stand by our products with a full lifetime warranty, so that was not an option.

The answer was to create a two-piece magazine extension. This keeps the integrity of the extension tubes and gives greater flexibility in changing between magazine capacity sizes quickly and easily. It also gives greater control over the end length so you can tinker until its exactly in line with the end of the barrel.

Installation involves removing the factory mag tube (And putting it somewhere safe), screwing in the extension pieces and reassembling the foreend. Instructions are provided.

To change capacity, remove the clamp and swap over the extension piece for a different size one. Simple as that.

To go back to factory capacity, unscrew the whole kit and screw back in the mag extension. Voila!

The Deluxe Adler Extension Kit offers a full magazine replacement option that’s stronger than single tube mag replacements

Which size should I get?

Our kits can increase the capacity by an extra 2, 3, 5 or 6 shots.  The +2 extension creates a really nice weight balance, but the +5 can’t be beat if you’re looking for a few extra rounds while hunting.

The +2 style is recommended for 20″ barrel shotguns as its roughly flush with the end of the muzzle.

The +5 style is recommended for 28″ barrel shotguns as it sits roughly flush with the end of the muzzle.

These kits have been popular for hunting and local IPSC competitors looking to increase capacity while remaining under the competition’s overall gun length rule.

Standard kits are finished in a hard-wearing black Cerakote.

Lever action shotguns have been available in Australia since the late 1800s. Gunsmiths have been modifying them since this time, including class-appropriate capacity changes. Some states may have restrictions on capacity or magazine type. Please confirm with your local firearms authority to confirm your state or territory laws.
