SG & Y Rifles

Has anybody had any experiences with SG&Y? I am thinking about having them rebarrel my 300 Rum.

Re: SG & Y Rifles

I've had Speedy build 3 rifles, as I have been pleased with his work. He is extremely detail oriented. What initially sold me on his work is the number of his rifles that are winning matches. I'll try and post a pic of my 300 jarrett he recently finished.

Thanks, that is what I was expecting to here. What barrels are you using?

I am currently using krieger barrels yet wouldn't hesitate to go with a hart, shilen, or lilja. I think Speedy would second the Krieger or Hart. The only thing I regret is not going with a faster twist than the 1/12's.

Re: SG & Y Rifles

I have spent a lot of time with Speedy and Stick at the shop and to say that SG&Y is detail oriented is a gross understatement! He has built many rifles for me including my competition rifle and barrels and to say that I am 100% satisfied would be an understatement. SG&Y they know what they are doing! If you ask Speedy about barrels he will tell you what he thinks but I will let him speak for himself on this subject—don’t want to hurt any feelings.

Re: SG & Y Rifles

I have no idea what your post means but what I was referring to was the thoughts of Speedy as they relate to barrel manufacturers. If he wants to post what they are then he can--I can tell you that in his shop you will see several Makers in the racks as “House” barrels. I personally have several different ones and they shoot lights out. In many cases when you are building a rifle it depends on the LT for a barrel that will drive part of your decision as to the maker. Is that the best way to do it---depends on what you are building but that is a different discussion. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
