Montana Rifle Company - Opinions please

Thinking really hard about ordering up their Extreme Weather model in stainless chambered in 260 Rem.

Does anyone have any experience with their production rifles?

Thanks for your help.

I know a guy who had a 308 and was pleased. They are just a quiet builder.....don't go crazy on marketing. He loved the action and felt there was a lot of value for the money. I have read columns from picky old writers who appreciated this company.

I do not have experience with their production rifles but I do have a full custom 338 RUM build on their model 1999 action - a Model 70 clone. That rifle will put 4 into less than 1 inch at 200 yards so their actions have the potential to shoot well. I also have had to have work done on the action and they have good customer service. I spoke with the president of the company directly and he took care of my issue without charge.

Respectfully, as I know I am not a frequent poster here, I am well aware of how to use a search function, but I wanted to hear about recent experiences as these guns are relatively new to the market in their production formats. I have had recently had a terrible experience with a new to the market manufacturer, Forbes Rifle LLC, where I had to return two successive guns due to brutal quality control issues.

You are always free to ignore a post if it bothers you.

Not trying to be an a__hole, but I always wonder when people have to post that. It's a forum.

Have a good one.

I have a MRC stainless 1999 in a .308 custom hunting rifle. Very solid, smooth action. Have had no issues with it. Shoots very tight groups, no feed or extraction problems, trigger is smooth. I am buying another one shortly to build a new rifle with no reservations.
