Ian: Thanks for the info. I'm in the process of putting together a new custom rifle and was just informed about Near's products (Near's web page)
in the last day or two. In looking at his site it looks like some top grade machining and products. I've noticed the Near ads in PS mag before, but never really checked into it. I'm going to check with him next week about what he has available, but it looks like everything he does is first class work.
