Hi everyone, just want to show you my long awaited rifle that I got build by John Davies from DCR. It all started when I was watching a Youtube video from Richard with his .284 Dcr build by Steve Kershaw. I totally loved that it was made in the uk and it looked so promising from spec and customer service point of view. So I looked into to find out more, just to realize that DCR actions are build not far off from where I live in Cornwall so I went to investigate on a rainy day and met John at DCE-Holne R&D facilties in Kingsbridge South Devon. The company is super high tech as they deal only with precision in mind. John showed me some of the rifle he had build recently for customers and I was sold by the entire package and asked to start straight away on the build of a F class action left port right bolt chambered in 308win.

The process has been really fun as John has been on the ball to find the right barrel and all the other components.

It has been now 4 months since the order and I would recommend too anyone to speak to him as he is full enthusiasm and his work has so far not disappointed me.

I shall be looking forward to join the Ftr league next year but first get some practice and experience.

 

Cheers

 

Action: DCR F class, short action, single shot, left port and right bolt.

Rail: DCR matching aluminum 20moa adj

Barrel: Trueflite, F class contour 32" 1-10" twist

Trigger : Kelbly Benchrest

Stock: Joe West, Ftr thumb Ups, light weight butt inlet

Scope rings: Third eye

Trigger guard: Holland light weight aluminum

Scope: Sightron Siii 8-32X56 lrtd/tdt

 

So far I am just making up some loads so will keep up to date how it shoots.
