McWhorter Rifles

Does anyone have any experience with these rifles? Good or bad. Looking at one for a the 338 lapua hunting rifle.

Re: McWhorter Rifles

I certainly do not, but I'm sure someone here does. Have you looked into one of the sites gunsmith's. I feel pretty confident saying you can't go wrong with any of them. Lots of guys on here have used them. I've even used one of 'em.

Re: McWhorter Rifles

Tim McWhorter is a first class gun smith. He used to do rimfire benchrest and has built many an award winning gun. I own a sporter he built for BR50 years ago. YES I know you will not believe this but it is capable of shooting in the zeros. That is less than .10 of an inch 5 shot groups. Mine is a sako action built with a stith stock, lilja tight .22lr bbl, a jewel 2oz trigger. Mcwhorter smithed this and it is a true shooter. He no longer builds rimfire guns and focuses solely on Centerfire from what I understand. Any smith that can make a rimfire gun shoot in the zeros is certainly capable of making an incredible centerfire weapon. I know there are differences but accuracy comes from the attention to details. No matter the flavor, a true action is a true action, an incredible bedding is incredible bedding, a trigger properley set with no creep that breaks consistently at the same .........You get the point. To answer your question an emphatic yes.

Re: McWhorter Rifles

I have a Sendero SFII that McWhorter rebarreled, bedded, braked, and accurized. It is now a very good shooter. With a little reloading work, consistently shoots 168 gr VLD's into 3/8-1/2" groups @ 100 yds.

Re: McWhorter Rifles

I now have three McWhorter rifles and solidly recommend these guns. VERY accurate, well put together, balanced, and they perform as advertised. I have worked with both Allan Rovig and Tim McWhorter on building my guns and they were very knowledgeable and helpful in my selection process.
