Thanks! Keep it coming!

Check the gunsmithing portion of the forum. The prevailing opinion on these Stillers amongst the gunsmiths is that these actions are good to go - AS IS/DELIVERED.
Check with Shawn or Kirby - do not take my word for it. FWIW there is a group buy going on at snipers hide right now for these Stillers, the price break is outstanding. Do a search on the keyword Stiller and you will find the thread.

    Thanks, Don. Hey, I'm just N of you in Whatcom Co.

    From looking on SH, is appears that that buy does not include the TAC 338 made for the Lap 338 or 378 Weatherby cases--bummer.

    Thanks for the info, nonetheless. Hopefully it'll help someone out.

    Jon

    OH MAN!!! That's right! My bad!

    I was just up there in Whatcom Co today. This morning "she who must be obeyed" announced to me that I was taking her to lunch in White Rock and to get my rear out of bed.

    On the way home we swung by Birch Bay and checked out a time share we bought into. It was very nice (Sand Castle Resort).

    By the time we got out of there, there was not time to swing by Kesselring's on the way home. Settled for stopping in at Sportsman's in Burlington.

    Shoot me a personal e-mail at flash.bang@comcast.net, I just got a picture of a really nice blacktail buck taken on Friday in Whatcom Co. My buddies dad got him. It has some really narely non-typical eyeguards, since I do not have permission to post his pic's on this web site I will have to e-mail them to you.

    Email sent.

    Hard to go by Kesselring's without stopping in...

    I got a spike bull last Sunday and packed him out Mon. and came home and put him in a friends cooler. Then went back the next day with my brother as he had cow tag starting Wed. morning. 45 min. after shooting light and two 428yd shots into the kill zone of a cow and he was done for the year. More packing...6 quarters out of the wilderness to the car for me this year--I'm not working out for a week...

    Does anyone have the link to Phoenix Actions? Can't seem to find it.
    Jon and Don, I grew up in Burlington, now live in Sedro Woolley, and feel like I grew up in Kesselrings. Don, I would love to see the photos of the blacktail. My personal email is kona410@hotmail.com.

    Here's the link: Phoenix Machine

    There's more of us locally than I would've thought. Don showed me those pics and I recognized the guy that shot it as someone I worked with for a few years and have done a bit of shooting with! I called him the next day and got the story. Small world...
