Well she's together!

Ive been trying like crazy to accumulate the parts since january of 17. My goal was a hybrid Gen1/gen2 bulldog micro.
After basically an exhaustive search. It clicked. BD 380, has everything I need and a micro riser for my 315. I didn't want a camo rail. As its going to all get ceracoated before season

With the help of a few contacts on this site(thanks guys) I purchased a bd380 and sent the rail to be machined 1/4 shorter than a supressor by Burky, a real great guy.

So the specs are as follows.

Gen1 riser
Bulldog stock and trigger setup, with TT
Rail machined to 16.5", or 3/4" additional draw.
30.5" overall.

I can't get my chrony to stop givong me errors. But its passing through my bulldog pug target, which it never did before. By my math from all my chrony test. It should be moving in the 350s with a 395 gen arrow

Thanks guys, I dont have any fancy spot to take a pic, but I have this ratty piece of carpet for whatever reason...
And here it is beside my micro 315(on the right). And those are pretty small.

Best I can get over the chrony tonight is 352 with a 396grn Big John hunting arrow. Oddly enough, I only gained 4 fps on my old setup... But now it blows through the target. So I'm not experienced enough to know what that means. Tells me it works real good tho!

Nice project and bow! I like it! You’re absolutely right about Tim, he’s awesome with machining and making mods! He has built me a small project and it turned out awesome as well. 😉

That really shows the advantage of the bullpup stock. Shorter overall length compared to the Micro 315 and much faster!! :)

Ya it really does, and I find pulling the weight of the rail back right to your shoulder really helps with the balance, makes it far more stable.
I made a typo above it actually measure 30.5". I'm very happy, this ones getting ceracoated and staying for a long time

One thing I am finding is the Bulldog stock design also seems to absorb alot of the vibration. I'll never go back to the original configuration.. ;)
