Your Number One Gun

Hi Guys/Girls

I have found that the best optics in most peoples view is Schmidt & Bender, is there an equivalent rifle even if it is customised that is a real solid all rounder? Does one name stand out from all others?

Regards

Dob

Re: Your Number One Gun

Dob,
You won't go far wrong with a Remington 700, probably the most used and customised rifle available.
There is a vast amount of parts, knowledge and highly skilled craftsmen willing to improve your Remmy, there are also a lot of bodgers and charlatans ready to rip you off.
Stick with the advice given on this forum and we will keep you on the right track.

Ian.

Re: Your Number One Gun

you could go with one of the $1000 custom actions and build from there....

basically... any custom rifle will do the S&B justice. Make suer you have a good smith build it....

as far as a factory production rifle.... don't waste your money get an action contact a good smith and go from there...

Dob,

Depending where you are, Europe I would have a look at RPA, SWS 2000 and Pete Lincoln`s site (speak to him about sws 2000).

In USA; GA Precision, HD Rifles, Nesika.

Hard to make a bad choice from them.

David.

Re: Your Number One Gun

Hi Guys,

Have been talking to Pete and will probably go for a custom .260. The main reason being the Irish law is looking like limiting calibre to .270 for stalking and up to 308 for target. If this turns out to be true I want a gun that mainly shoots target but could also be used to stalk!
I have no idea about barrels, stock, etc etc but Pete is looking into it for me. I must say he has been very straight and knowledgeable and I am looking forward to the resulting gun.

Wish me luck [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
