Yup, they quoted me a full custom package topped with NXS and nitrided action and barrel for about $5600 which I thought was a very good deal. I will probably be getting one of their customs.

USO's EREK knob is bad to the bone, while it wouldn't be my first choice for a saddle scabbard it is my favorite overall.

I'm just a tight German so I'll take the NXS, Danke

Neither is a wrong choice for sure. I would really like to add a 25x USO to my stable.

I have never looked through a USO but have heard a lot of great things about them and no doubt they are a great product. I have been through their website and I like the NF options a little better. USO does offer customized options but that comes with a price and I like NXS options just fine.

Broz let me shoot his LRKM last weekend and I got to check out his ACTAR. It is very nice! He and I are both SFP kinda guys so that scopes does the job for us. I also like the MOAR reticle.

Why don't you just drive over to Surgeon Rifles there in Oklahoma and pick one out? Well, it's probably not that easy but I'm sure they could build whatever you want. Support your local gunsmiths. You are really getting quite the hall pass from your wife. You better keep her. Good luck with your build.
