Maybe we should have a "built by Chad" fan club ;)

Re: LongRifles Inc.

Very nice! Looks similar to what I have in mind to have built. The action and barrel fit look excellent. Can you tell me what stock that is you used, and did Chad do all of the inletting on it? On his site, he says that he'll only build on stocks that are "free of any/all finish and inletting work". If he did that for your stock, he did some damn fine work.

Re: LongRifles Inc.

The stock is a McMillan Remington Hunter with the edge technology. Chad did all of the inletting. As I said in my first post pictures do not do justice to this rifle. All of the inletting follows the metal perfectly and is ballanced, no gaps anywhere. Chad also spent a lot of time hand sanding the stock to smooth the transition from stock to metal . This is my second custom rifle. The fit and finish between this rifle and the first is like night and day. The first was inletted by McMillan and assembled by the gunsmith. There were large gaps around all of the metal. The ejection port of the stock was shorter then the port on the action, and the gunsmith made no attempt to clean it up. I was extremely disappointed in the finished product. It's obvious that Chad takes great pride in his work.

Your LongRifles Inc. rifle looks like it was genetically engineered and grew into a full-fledged rifle, as designed. No detail overlooked!
