Re: Who to build a custom rifle


custom rigs are addicting.... once you get one you want another ...but hey such is life.....

I have had many... builders... build me a custom rig... some of the top ones around actually...

i never really got exactly what I wanted until I e-mailed Chris Matthews.... what I thought would be one or 2 e-mails turned into a few e-mails and phone calls and he was really interested in what I wanted... and He (not me ) said to me that he needed it to be perfect... since that first e-mail I have had 3 custom rigs built by him and just talked to him on the phone last night about a few ( yeah more than 2 ) more!!

if anything just e-mail him or give him a call and talk to him... I know he knows how to built a LR screamer... ask the guys at the 1K br match in Iowa this past weekend!!

Re: Who to build a custom rifle

If you want a guy that will really take time with you and actually listen to what you are trying to get out of project.

If you want absolute accuracy

If you want attention to detail

If you want perfection then...

My vote is for Chris Matthews. think he might have a website

Re: Who to build a custom rifle

I just sent my Sako 75 action to Kirby Allen. I'm excited about my first custom rifle.

Re: Who to build a custom rifle

Chris Matthews gets my vote.

I have to be the most anal and picky SOB on the planet. It all started with an email to chris. I explained to him what I was looking for. Being this was my FIRST custom rig..I soon found out I really didn't know what I needed. After several emails and even more phone calls, Chris got me on the right track.

But wait...Now I wanna change this and that..No problem, spoke to Chris and had detailed conversations on why I wanted the changes etc.

Sent him the action and off we go............But wait I just saw a thread about so and so item and I gotta have it. Phone call # 500000 Item added.

All I can say is Chris has the patience of a saint. I thought for sure several times I was gonna flip this guy out with all the changes and questions etc. Some of the questions even went as far as" What would be the best load for this beast" Questions answerd.

Chris has a great personality and is willing to listen to everything you have to say.

Anyway, Chris just sent me an email saying my very first ever custom rifle will be done in a few days all I can say is WOW. To say I'm exciteds is an understatement.

Be sure to keep an eye open for that thread comin that will say "it's here" I will be sure to include pics and targets.
