Gunwerks Rifles, anyone own one? Need info

I'm looking at the L1000 with the Nightforce G7 package in a 6.5-284, or 7mmWSM. Who owns one, can you give me your thoughts? Happy with them? Wish you had gone a different direction?

Thanks

I have two now and just sold one. Get the 7 mm LRM. They are absolutely great setups. I just sold my LR 1000 in 7 mm LRM to help pay for a hunt but will be replacing it at the end of the year. I own a LR 1200 in 300 Win with a TI action and carbon bbl for my lighter mountain rifle. Did I mention how damn accurate they are. I also had them build me a 358 Wssm to hunt with a rifle in Indiana ( funny restrictions ) and it is also scarey accurate. Customer service is the absolute best I've ever delt with. Only downfall is the cost.
PM me if you need more info

I own a GAP Non-Typical in 300wsm topped with a NF G7 scope. Absolutely love the entire setup. Close friend has LR1000 in 6.5x284, and it is an absolute lazer! It's my next rifle beyond a doubt. The setup and ergonomics just fit me perfectly. I love my GAP but my next high end long ranger will be the Gunwerks. In addition to the rifle, the G7 scope and rangefinder are fantastic and very intuitive to use. Durability is also top notch! The entire system works as advertised, from ammo to rifle. Go for it, you will not be disappointed!

I have their 6.5x284. What a sweet shooter! It hardly kicks so you don't need a muzzle break...so no dealing with muzzle blast and ringing ears. Last year, I killed two large bull elk with two shots. One was over 750 yds. Neither went more than 20 yards. I had never shot anything smaller than a 300 win mag since I was 12 years old. What an absolute pleasure this "little gun" is to shoot.....and that 140 Berger is DEADLY!

great reviews guys, thank you very much. I bet the wait wouldn't be half as long as waiting for one of George's Non Typicals.

Yes I did. It's ready to be shipped to me. Just need to come up with some cash to make final payment.
