I am a Brit in the market for a .308/7mm08/284win custom rifle
. I have looked at the gunsmiths near to me in the UK and compared to the USA they are very expensive and more orientated around very heavy Benchrest target shooting rifles or Deer stalking and they charge an extortionate rate for the work they do.
I am really struggling to find a gunsmith with any experience making long range hunting rifles and have now started to look at the feasibility of getting a rifle made in the USA and picking it up whilst on Holiday there later this year.
I have an aunt that lives in Florida and I will be there in October-November this year so I need to find a good gunsmith in the Florida. Can you recommend one???
In addition, I have checked out the laws in the UK and according to British law I can purchase and bring a firearm into the UK with me, as long as I inform my local firearms team what I am doing and take my licenses with me, but will a gunsmith from the USA sell me one???
Are there any gunsmiths on here with experience in this field ???
