Re: Big Shout Out To Deadly Precision Gunsmithing and Lorenzo Young

I also went with Lorenzo from deadly precision for my build. I won the manners stock give away contest and that was all the incentive to get my build started. I was also on the fence as to get the rifle custom made or just get the stock to replace the factory stock on my rifle. I am glad I went with the custom build. I have a thread started on this site:
Winner of Manners contest looking for help on first build

detailing my build and some pics are already posted of the before and I can't wait to post the after pics.
I have to echo all the positive comments everyone has said about Lorenzo. He has been very helpful and returns calls and emails as late as 9:00 at night. He is customer service orientated and he keeps you informed as to the status of your build. Two weeks ago I got an email from him at 10:30pm letting me know that he got a shipping notice that my barrel was on the way!
I gave him the basics on what I wanted and on the color and details I let him go with what he thought would look best and told him to surprise me. I can't wait to see the final product and I am sure I will be blown away.

Very nice rifle. That is great when a rifle builder keeps you updated like that!

Re: Big Shout Out To Deadly Precision Gunsmithing and Lorenzo Young

I woke up this morning to see this email in my inbox. It came in a little after midnight on a Sunday night Monday morning. I thought everyone would like to see this. Lorenzo really does care about keeping his customers informed about their builds. He is a great all around person to deal with and his love for what he does shows. He isn't a 8 to 5 Monday to Friday kind of guy but it looks like he is always working! Most of my contact with him has been after 8pm when he is doing the boring paper work of running a business. I hope he is keeping the Boss happy otherwise he might wind up sleeping in the shop! Happy wife=Happy life!:

to me
Hey Bill,
I spent the afternoon on your build. I've got the action trued. I took a few pics I'll forward later. The first challenge was removing the barrel. Removing factory barrels can provide good exercise. Remington uses a 450lb gorilla to wrench barrels on with NASA approved loctite. Several years to develop a bit of corrosion inside helped make this barrel particularly stubborn.

Truing the action, I took time to note what it took to clean everything up. The face of the receiver showed no more than fifty percent contact. Obtaining a nice square face required removing six thousandths. The lug abutments required three thousandths to clean up. The threads were about average, slightly off center and out of parallel with the bolt. I opened the threads twelve thousandths to achieve perfect concentricity and alignment. The bolt is in the fixture, ready to cut the lugs and face. Typically, I remove one thousandths from bolt lugs and bolt face.

I'll take pics as I go and keep you posted. I'll put up a thread if you like.

Re: Big Shout Out To Deadly Precision Gunsmithing and Lorenzo Young

Here's a pic my wife took before shipping. Of course, she forgot the magazine. I'm afraid the camera lense had a little cutting oil on it from me taking photos of running machinery. The rifle turned out very nice. The Savage action trued up nicely, a bolt lift and some polishing made it run smooth. With fresh paint, the HS stock looks and feels great. The Badger is a very effective brake. The rifle was a pleasure to shoot. My test group put four rounds into .25 with the first round opening the group to .5.
