Remington Custom Shop

Hello,


I need some feedback about the remington custom shop. I'm going to look for a new rifle with a sporter configuration but for lots of long range work.

I have selected two rifles in 7mm Remington Magnum :

first, McMillan new hunting rifle Legacy model there are 6 months of delay to get it but finish, Schneider barrel, action, stock are premium...

second choice, Remington 700 AWR II from their custom shop. I have no idea about finish and quality ? Secondly, I don't like B&C stock is it possible to ask a HS or McMillan ? do you have an idea of the delay ?

If someone can give me some info...

Thanks you.

I would suggest that you contact Remington's custom shop and ask them.

I have never seen one. I would call them. If your not dead set on a Rem there are lots of other great semi custom builders out there. HS precsion, ED Brown just to name a few.

Re: Remington Custom Shop

Why don't you just have Eddie build it? He builds 7 Rem mags for the Secret Service and you will get exactly what you want and he will answer the phone when you have a question. He also builds his own rifles which are usually nationally ranked. He will let you order the parts or you can just tell him which parts you want and he will order them.

Re: Remington Custom Shop

Buffalobob, thanks for the referral but, just to set things straight, I do not build 7 Mags. for the Secret Service. They have their own "In House" gunsmith, who builds all of their sniper and counter sniper rifles. A few years ago their shop was damaged in a fire and they used my shop until theirs was rebuilt. I would be glad to build a rifle for anyone who wishes to contact me. Eddie.

Re: Remington Custom Shop

I looked at a new remington custom shop awr rifle at a local gun shop a few years ago. I was not impressed by the workmanship as the one side of the stock was against the barrel. Gave me the impression that quality control was very poor.
