  1. Did they do a wood or laminate version ? If not and you want it sorted properly its finding a smith or stock maker that may have the inlet or they can copy the std inlet ? - one way or another it can be done . If you changed your profile to say what area you are someone may offer help or advice

    6mm bullet choice

    Iv just received some Nosler 95 grain Btips (purple) to try in my 6br , if they shoot well this could be my go-to new bullet . Iv put them side by side to 95 TMK and there somewhat shorter with a lesser boat tail . But this could be a advantage to seat the bullet out further / nearer the lands . I struggled to get the 95 TMK to shot so sold them . I try and post a picture of the nosler nx to TMK . Then again iv not tested the 108 eld-m iv had for some time now . My shooting has dropped off the last couple of year so its now time to re-ignite the hunting bug , spring is close and im hopefully going to eradicate many corvids.

    17HMR what to get

    17 hmr is the first ever firearm i owned , marlin 917 i think . But i upgrade to an Anshutz 1517 TH cracking gun but gave up in the end due to bad inconsistent ammo . Not sure if things have changed . My Anni used to prefer Federal ammo and shot tighter groups with it than Remington , hornady , cci . Weirauch do a hmr ? Thats who id try
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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 ?
  10. 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
