Re: A question for the experts

Slipshot,

I can not speak for the other smiths on the board but personally one of my Custom rifles built on a fully accurised Rem 700 would be similiar in price to that Cooper price you listed.

If you want more details on specific pricing and options drop me an e-mail at:

kballen@3rivers.net

Good Shooting!!

Slipshot,

I think that is the reason we do this stuff. IF you ever loose that excitement its time to find a new hobby I believe if that is what you can call this addiction [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!

Re: A question for the experts

There is room in my safe for both custom and factory rifles. (but just barely) About half of my rifle purchases have been, in some way or another, not strictly factory gear; like sporting a premium barrel, and I do a lot of aftermarket work, myself.

If you don't handload, and you can't afford to wait a year for your dream rifle, I'd get a Remington, and go shooting. I bought one recently that listed for just under $1000, but it sold for $750, plus sales tax and all the other BS they tack on.

However, handloading has so much to recommend, that possibly the best advice I can offer is to get started, the sooner, the better. You will never regret it.

Good hunting. LB

Re: A question for the experts

Why is it I decide I want something after they stop making them??? Got the custom project pretty much nailed down all except the cash and green light to fiftydriver. 4 months and couple K and that hot rod could be mine.
So today I am wandering around town (vacation is great ya know) and get a wild hair to hit the local shops on the off chance they have a Sendaro 25-06 standing in the rack. Now granted I know its a long shot at best but what the heck I got time to kill. 5 stops later I am in the same situation as when I started only now I know of 3 other guys looking for them as well (kind of makes you wonder why Remington decided to stop making them). Head off for the casa for some well diserved pouting and get this brain cramp, Lets call all the shops in the area!!!!!!! Once again I got time to kill and unlimited long distance so lets let the fingers do the walking!!!!!!! 7 calls later I got 2 guys checking with distributers and 5 more that didnt even know they stoped making them. Aint life grand!!!!! And I thought it was just golf and team roping that caused flustration LOL.

I guess timing is everything [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: A question for the experts

If you can get the barreled action and stock finished and in your hands in four months, that's good service. LB
