  1. If there's an issue yes my problem , and id take / drive or send the issue back to whoever it concerns . No, just because i supplied a blank doesn't mean iv taken a cut of the smith. He would charge according /time labor tooling etc . He even suggested i pay direct because it was soo pricey anyway ! Plus on your auto motive wont fit customer supplied parts is rubbish - i actually get my car / van / bike parts myself and have local mechanics carry out the work , again they wont have parts in stock so i source them , they charge according .. Also call me a penny Pincher ? And mock me about building myself ? Uuum that's why i use a professional to build for me it costs alot , plus i don't by cheap . Soo having a problem with cheap built rifle is a non starter . He's one of the best and properly trained , not like some so called gunsmiths that do mediocre work . With questionable background / training in sheds etc . Hell you even mention earlier - not much point in paying double for other brands ? Sounds like your penny Pinching . It's up to the buyer . They can get what they like . You also mention - why not just buy 2 from your local RFD - well they may not have specific caliber 17/20 for instance in the right profile twist etc . That why i had to source one . And took it to smith who charge according . So don't accuse people from taking profit . Hell daves even stated he would fit customer supplied barrel of good brands - but wouldn't warranty them - yup totally agree . Would never try that if i had an issue , im an honest person . That my last input on this , i dont really know why im explaining myself to you anyway after mocking me building bloddy rifle myself . Good day sir
  2. If i want something manufacturer for me to my spec and that manufacturer can & will do this , then thats what ill do thank you . That action was delivered to my smith and i took the blank and stock to him - he already had the right reamer . And i bought the trigger thru that smith - he never had any issues . ps sorry palo for hijack
  3. TV and cars are built to a standard off the shelf . Ordering non standard firearm parts to your specific needs is a bit different . atb
  4. I believe some actually do , it would be fine if say a standard barrel / reamer was needed but if theres an issue with sizes (one off) drawing etc surly face to face with the customer is better and less hassle going thru hoops . When i had a custom Action made to my spec i was in direct contact with manufacturer and we made 1 or 2 changes . Then it was delivered to my smith , and paid for thru the smith . So not trying to take anything away . That's how id do it . Each to there own
  5. Moorland if its specific custom non standard stuff if we wereable to issue drawing / diagrams with sizes , why cant we buy direct ? Its surly better to deal direct with manufacturer ?
  6. Its the same with some reamer manufacturer wont supplie to the individual - theres no laws against it . Not that i know of . I needed a custom reamer manufacturer for me but 1 uk manufacturer wouldn't . I would take all component to smith once gathered . I don't diy smith anything . Tho iv had a krieger blank here and taken that to smith once ready

    CZ 527 Bolt handle

    I read about this action and sometimes a clearance issue , looks a great job to me the tapered knob is perfect with the old ball part . I have a 527 but probably will leave the ball as std . I remember sometimes they Wouldn't clear the scope
