With all these endorsements, you are certainly at or near the top of my list if I need a build. Keep up the good work.

More and more I am wishing I had gotten a Lawton kit. I could have had the rifle finished by now because I wouldn't have had all the issues I have had with the Phoenix, it has been an albatross since day one.
I am leaving for OK this AM to boar hunt, hopefully when I get back I will have the receiver.


When a man makes a humble and sincere apology for an error, a gentleman responds with grace. I sadly see no grace in your response. There is a saying... show mercy, get mercy... show no quarter, get no quarter... in other words, what goes around comes around.

If you ever decide to come to Montana to hunt, dont look me up.

Re: Straight Shot Gunsmithing - endorsement

I'm the proud owner of Nate's first 280AI -shoots like a champ.

It was finished well ahead of schedule and i can't say enough good things about Nathan -very friendly -modest easy going family man .

Nate - We'll be needing a 25-06 AI reamer soon i have a rockcreek .257 barrel in hand.

And the troubleshooting advice you gave me about my burris signature series rings possibly being overtightened on the bases [by me of coarse] causing the rifle to shoot WAY too the right was spot on !

Thanks -Mike

Nate is building my 300RUM and has been very patient with my questions about fluting, scope mounts, bottom metal etc. etc. and has forwarded me pics when my McMillan came a word he has been great to deal with and since my gun is close to being finished I am sure I will be singing his praises even more on this forum very shortly.

Re: Straight Shot Gunsmithing - endorsement

sounds like a great guy and the groups with that factory ammo in a gun he built simply blow my mind. wish i had some $ and lived closer ( i hail from down under, nz).
