I am at the point where I have decided to get a custom rifle.

Can anyone please give me a list of some reputable gunsmiths or companies?

Thank you.

On the main forum page, if you go down to where you see the sponsors forum, there are a lot of good gunsmiths on this very site.

Your location might be a factor as well.

I am from south Texas, and I was interested on getting a 300 win mag or a 6.5x284. I wanted the 300for shots over 700 yards on deer and the 6.5 for anything closer. I currently have a 270 win and a 243.

There are a lot of great places to get rifles built, it is nice when you can talk to the smith so you full understand what they are telling you and they know exactly what you want.

Re: reputable custom rifle sales man/company?

I am not familiar with a smith in TX. But will give my recommendations from the Smith on this site I have used or shot their rifles.

My new build is coming from Shawn Carlock at Defensive Edge in Idaho. I have met and shot with Shawn on a few occasions and we think and shoot alike. Every rifle I have ever seen that DE built was a top end shooter.

I also have had the pleasure to shoot a rifle built by Kevin Cram of Montour County rifles. The fit and finish was excellent and the rifle shot very well too.

Kirby Allen from Allen Precision rifles in Fort Shaw Montana also builds very nice rifles. He would also be a top contender for a long range rig.

Know going in to this that these guys stay busy for a reason. They are among the top rifle builders in the US. So if you want a rifle in a hurry I doubt it would happen with these guys. But they are reliable, here for the future, and you will get a fine rifle in the end.

There are other builder too that can fill the bill from this site. These are just the first I would consider as I have used their products.

Jeff
