    Contacting him by email is the best way. He's super busy now but will answer you email. kballen@3rivers.net

    I have a build in progress. This is my second one with Kirby.

    I've never talked with the man. Just one email each time and one more for one thing or another.

    email your specs, he'll send, as they all do, a cost then just go for it. It saves a lot of phone time, (reduced production )

    Pops must be pulling through for ya. Go for the gold.

    On the serious side. He'll answer your emails one of these moments.

    Let su know what you're dreamin' about.

    I'm not dreaming about anything literally the last couple nights, got those woman issues on my mind. ;)

    But the build should go something like this:

    Stiller Tac338 or Lawton 8000 (I think 8000, maybe 8500) action
    Broughton 32" barrel+APS Painkiller (maybe fluted)
    The lightest Jewell trigger with a safety
    Mcree Precision stock
    Barrelled action coated matte black, stock a coyote tan/black

    Then I supply the optics, probably a Nightforce 5.5-22x56 if I can afford it before I get the gun. Maybe I can find a used one on here or something.

    With that barrel and brake it sounds like it may be a big'un.

    I've seen a couple of those go for a reasonable price on E-Bay over the last few months. Keep an eye out there and some of the other forums like BR and Snipers Hide.

    Kudos on your new build and I hope you're patient... I get the impression that Kirby is vey busy and backed up.
