I live in Greensburg now, but used to live in Harrisburg and still travel out that way alot.
Thanks for the info - I will definetly check Seekins out!!
If I can find a rail, do you think that Mr. Baer would drill and tap my receiver for it to fit?? Here in Greensburg, there are no riflesmiths that I would trust to do any work at all!! I'm going to giver Kirby (fiftydriver) a shout too - he has helped with some questions I have had- seems like a hell of a nice guy!!
You sure don't like your locale boys for some reason?
Some of the best longrange smiths might just live in PA.
You should go to one of the Williamsport matches, I've never been but they been shootin 1K matches for years.
Open competition really improves the rifles and shooters skill. You might also find a used custom at a good price!
And know how good it is by the targets it shot.
Maybe lookup Howard and Bobby Wolfe I know Howard is in the 1K benchrest hall-of-fame, Shooting his own guns!!!
He made me a rifle 4 or five years ago and it was OUTSTANDING.
Guns have been around for hundreds of years and most of the best improvments have been built upon others hard work its been a slow process and the groups keep shrinking.
Other improvments have been in the glass, bullets and computer program (mills, lathes)equipment avalable today.
Anyways sounds like your gun is doing OK for a stock stick.
"IMPROVE ACCURACY"thats what we are all working on!!!
I have a Sako L691 that looks very similar to the 75. Reloading is the way to go & by the way the trigger adjustment is pretty easy. They do have a very sweet trigger. What a supprise it is every time the gun speaks!! Shooting 1/2" groups. The only thing I have done to the gun was lighten up the trigger & free float the barrel with some sand paper... Hard to beat a Sako barrel.
Mag, i don't think Bruce really does small gunsmithing stuff any more,only builds complete guns/rebarrels. besides, he left to hunt out west today.i would call Kevin Cram of montourcountyrifles.com 570-275-1698 good smith, good guy, lives about an hour or so's drive up the river from harrisburg.he could turn it around for ya pretty quick.
It's not that I don't "like" the Pa gunsmiths - I just don't know of any here in my area - I am new to this long Range stuff.
I know Jim Borden and Mark Basner make awesome rifles, but I don't think they mess with small jobs such as drilling and tapping a receiver. They are super busy building guns for their clients.
I really wish I would have had one of those guys buld me a rifle instead of buying these Sako's!! I was new to the game and really didn't know much about it. I have learned alot by reading, and by websites such as this one. The more knowledge you gain, the more you want to get into better equipment!!
I appreciate all the help and suggestions from everyone. I am a very picky person and I want the best equipment (no matter with rifles or archery)that I can afford - its just how I am.
