Re: Montana gunsmith

This is a picture of the rifle Kirby built me. It is a 7mm AM on a Nesika M single shot action w/ 20MOA rail, Jewel trigger, 34 inch Lilja four groove barrel, Shawn Carlock brake, 8X-32X-56mm Nightforce scope, all on an A5 stock. I was/am very happy with the gun.
The gun did very well on a nice bull elk at 968 yards. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Montana gunsmith

Another vote for APS!

Kirby did me up one helluva XP-100 in 7mm-270WSM. First three rounds from the bench during break-in (cleaned between each shot) went well under .2". Since then my hunting load w/ 162gr AM's goes into the .4's and has taken game to 400yds...someday further but trees tend to limit my LR hunting.

Re: Montana gunsmith

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

Mr. Allen built a 270 AM on my REM 721 action. 30" fluted Lilja barrel w/defensive edge brake and sako type extractor.

It would be impossible to be more satisfied with Kirby's work and talent.

Re: Montana gunsmith

Kirby built me a .338 EDGE with a 30in Lilja and Holland QD brake. Will shoot 1/4 inchers with 300gr SMKs if i do my part. He will get all my future business.
