First Custom

I'm putting together my first custom, and I believe I have everything I need to get the smith started. Below is my list of all my current components. Is there anything I need to look out for, or anything else I need that isn't on the list?

Factory Rem Trigger
PTG Speedlock & Aluminum Firing Pin
Holland Recoil Lug
Brux #4 contour barrel
Factory mag box
Factory spring and follower
PTG LA OberndorfBDL Bottom Metal
B&C Alaskan 700 BDL Ti Ultralight stock
Leupold DD bases and rings
Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44 LR

Re: First Custom

Looks like you have the parts.
Now it's up to you and the gunsmith to set down how you want things assembled.
Things like....
Chamber
Throating
Shank length
Finish length
Crown
Bedding
Finish

Yeah, I have to sit down and talk with him about it here before too long. I'm stoked about it, can't wait to get it done and shooting!

Re: First Custom

Don't know what bullet, but planning on a .280 Rem.
