Christensen Carbon 1 custom 300

Hey guys,

I went to the local gun shop the other day and saw that they have a Christensen Carbon Once Custom 300 Win Mag. I wanted to know what you're experiences where with these guns and if they are worth it? This one was priced in at $2k. From what I have seen looking around it seems to be a good deal.

Thanks for the input.

Re: Christensen Carbon 1 custom 300

IMO you could build a lot more gun for $2000.00 then what you would be getting with a Christensen. They are little more than a Shilen barrel sleeve wrapped in carbon. You could invest the money into a custom build and have some left over for glass too. It's true some Christensen arms shoot very well. I just think that you could get more bang for your buck building your own and it would be brand new to boot.

Remmy action trued $550.00
Hart Barrel installed $650.00
Quality stock $ 350.00
Custom Trigger $ 200.00

Total Semi Custom Rifle $1750.00 + the joy of having done it yourself.

Re: Christensen Carbon 1 custom 300

I know a guy who has one in 300 rum couldnt get it to group he kept sending it back with no luck. The problem was it was machined so he had a long jump to the lands i can't remember how far of a jump but it was a long jump he started seating the bullets out a lot further it started grouping better. But for the cost he shouldnt have to go to so much troubleshooting to get it to shoot imo
i agree there is some fun & satisfaction to building your own plus it will probably cost less.
2 grand is a good deal i think they are much more new special ordered from the factory but i would still rather build than buy one for the cost.
