Re: Need imput.
I would have to agree with UncleB on this one. Not saying that I need to be the one to build the rifle at all but with a custom rifle you will get EXACTLY what you want.
H-S makes a quality rifle for sure but they are not as flexible to the desires of the customer as a custom builder can be. STock options, barrel options, trigger options, brake options, everything can be hand selected which is often a large part of the enjoyment of designing and having a rifle built.
All the smiths on this site, will work with the customer, find out what they want to do with the rifle first, then design a plan to build a rifle to meet their goals. Then the fun starts adding the custom features to get a truely one of a kind rifle that will meet every want and desire of the customer.
Depending on the rifle design, price would not be much differnt then what H-S has to offer.
For a bit more money and alot less time, I would recommend a Nesika Bay receiver. Can get one in shop in 2 months flat compared to four for the BAT. Both are world class but McMillan inlets for the Nesika Bay M receiver. THey do for the big 10" BAT as well but not the smaller BAT receivers.
