Has anyone had any projects by Mr. Allen, and if so how was your satisfaction with the end product?

I have had Kirby do a lot of work for me. He built a full blown custom gun, a 7mm AM for me. He also did some major work for my hunting buddy on his rifle, a 270 AM. From day one, from start to finish, there was not one single incident, conversation, decision or actual work done that was not absolutely top notch.
I have mailed so many packages to Kirby that I should have purchased a seat on a plane and I would have really racked up frequent flier miles.

I have even driven to Montana to hand deliver and have inspected a particular custom rifle
If I had it all to do over again I'd change nothing that I've done with Kirby. And, if you knew some of the stuff the two of us have put up with, that's saying a lot. He's gone to hell and back to make sure I've been happy and got what I wanted. I consider Kirby to be a top notch gunsmith and am 100% happy and satisfied with all work he's done for me. I'd send, or hand deliver, any gun work I needed done, on any gun I own, to him before I'd let anyone else touch it. I do have to say though, if for some reason Kirby couldn't work something in I'd not hesitate to run it up to Shawn Carlock. I've seen his work and heard people's comments about his work. I also know that Kirby recommends him highly and that says it all.
I guess you could say I'm a satisfied customer of APS.
