Re: 1st custom rifle build

Received my action and all looks well. Firing pin has some rust on it which is surprising. Does anybody have experience with Aztek Arms out of Utah? When I was checking out 6mmBR.com, saw their ad there.

    Why did you decide on a 5R barrel? Every one I have worked with I could not get nearly as much velocity as I could with a 4 groove krieger. Just wondering. dave

    I thought that the 5R was the way to go on barrel life, accuracy and higher velocity?
