Re: Montana Rifle Company Actions
My experience is that the quality control guy works part time. you get 1 action that is a right dog, requires machining, lapping and a load of finnishing work, the next is a realy nicely finnished action that is true and straight.
late delivery, logistics problems, slow response time all plays a factor.
The actions make a good short range do it all rifle, but they need 100% looking over and sorting out before doing anything with them. Ive just built a .338wm on a leftie action in stainless, the thing needed a lot ( a real lot) of work to get it right, i would have sent it back but my customer needed the rifle, so i sorted it out my self. the result is a nice rifle, that is accurate ( easily shoots 3/4 moa groups with all kings of factory ammo i could find) but every inch has been worked over. If you take the cost of the action, add the amount of work to get it right, you might as well buy a $1000 from the off.. having said that, the right hand action i have in is actualy quite nice, 100% better finnished ( before my work).. but who wants to deal with a guesisng game QC issue.
