Re: My New Gunwerks LR-1000 7LRM Rifle Left Hand

Any update on this? I'd really like to hear back from you about it. I have my parts sitting ready to go to them, but just wanted to hear some actual first hand info from someone other than Gunwerks.

    Tell me more about the brake. It looks as if its a clamp on. I've never seen one like it.

    Its called a tactical mini muscle break. The design has a set screw that lets you index the break off of an indexing mark on the under side of the barrel. It is still threaded but allows the shooter to easily remove the break when cleaning the rifle and then returning it to the correct indexing point every time for repeatability. Contact chris at benchmark barrels or the gunwerks guys for one of these.

    thats perfect for me. I like a 9-10lb LR rifle. Im thinking of getting a 6.5x284 carbon sheep hunter one in the next couple years and have it finished all up with nightforce at 8.5lb but thats a ways in the future. this is my perfect rifle and should do everything I need from antelope to moose.

    I was not aware they did this........ If ya dont mind what are they charging ya to do a barreled action labor wise.... I know that you got the parts.........will they do this with parts of your choice or do they recommend which parts to get...... Do they have a broad caliber selection Dan

    Midnight sorry for the hijack and that is a beautiful rifle ya got there...
