How long have you been in business, how did you get started, and who are some of the key members of your operation?
We have been officially in business since 1987. We are a family run operation. Jim Borden is the owner and Joan Borden (wife), Jim Borden Jr (son), John Borden and John (Mike) Mecca (son-in-law) participate in the business of manufacturing.

Can you describe and give me a brief history of some of your hot products or services?
The Alpine, Timberline and Rimrock LSR and SSR actions are the hottest selling products. Those actions directly drop into Remington 700 inletted stocks so they offer an opportunity to build an absolutely accurate rifle on a familiar platform. We expect our rifles to average sub 1/2 moa in hunting calibers.

What new products or services can we look forward to from your company in the future?
We will be adding 22 rimfire benchrest actions and an action suitable for the 338 Lapua in 2011.

Tell me about your (or some of your team's) long range shooting experience.
I have been involved in long range hunting and shooting since the early 1970's. I have taken game out to 1175 yards. The most thrilling for me was my Dall Sheep at 739 yards.
