Top notch. I wish I could afford a set for every rifle.

I am going off of what Bailey has told me so I hope they are good. From the one he already has they seem to be top quality.

Re: Near Manufacturing

In my opinion, Better than Badger Ord., which was what I thought was the best before I found out about Near. Richard is also a great person to deal with, more than willing to work up special products.

Re: Near Manufacturing

Actually that's just exactly what he did for my handgun hunting partner and i. He put together a set of bases for our XP-100's that work great. I especially like the fact that the slots run the entire length of the base to allow for more mounting flexibility. We had a problem with another manufcturer, since his did not, altho the problem would've been hard to anticipate and this other manufacturer has the greatest of reps. also.

Re: Near Manufacturing

I ordered a rail from Richard back in May, he said it would take a month, I have called & left messages and emailed and heard nothing, is the guy alright? Has anyone heard from him lately?

Re: Near Manufacturing

I have had no problem w/him. I think he has more work than time but he has always responded to my inquiries in a reasonable amount of time.
