In order to be consistently ranked nationally one needs to build consistently accurate rifles (it also helps to be able to shoot them accurately I am sure). Like many of the gunsmiths on this forum he is a very honest and forthright person whose reputation is built upon his character and the quality of his work.

P.S. What he charges for his work is about the same as anyone else.
Sweet, Thanks! I just got off the phone with him. I just purchased a .338 RUM on gunbroker and he is going to accept the transfer for me.
