Top Gunsmiths

Well, I thought this would help a bunch of people on this site who are looking for a top gunsmith to build their long range rifle. I would seriously have your rifle built by one of these guys.

They have all proven themselves as championship rifle builders. All you have to do is look at the 1000 yard bench rest results and you will see their names on many rifles.

Here they are;

1. Dave Tooley
2. Clay Spencer
3. Leonard Baity
4. Rick Beginski
5. Jim Borden
6. Mark King
7. Mike Bryant
8. Mickey Coleman
9. Richard Franklin
10. Gordy Gritters

If you go to 6mmBR.com it will give you there contact info ect.

I would seriuosly consider one of these guys before you look at anyone else.

I know there are some more guys on that list. I have listed the gunsmiths I and other fellows have worked with and have had rifles built by them.

Remember, the guys I have listed have a long pedigree of building proven championship rifles. When you order a rifle to be built by them, you know your going to get an accurate rifle for sure. There is no hesitation, because there is evidence of their accomplishments through benchrest championships and shooting articles.

Ya know bud, I've been around here for a while and been shooting farther than you can see for longer than you've been out of diapers and all I can say is, in reading and remembering your conduct and way of doing business in all of your threads I've come to the conclusion now, just like when I first started reading the aforementioned threads, that you need to do some growing up and learn how things work amongst friend and foe. Even the enemy, real or perceived, deserves respect, and it's very apparent that you know nothing about that and can only find ways to nip and yap at people, and that reminds one of a childhood playground tirade.

I'll keep this civil and short as what I did have ready to post would have gotten my post pulled if not have gotten me banned. I don't want to upset Len's living room as I kinda like spending some time in it.

I've followed all of your recent threads and it seems like if someone disagrees with you then you go until you find someone that does. That's fine, but to post something that comes across as an out right attempt to slight someone by posting a list and excluding someone,or some people, in particular just rings of a very childish and immature effort on your part.

None of this post is a debate and none of this post is an argument, it's just a statement by me and this is the last I'll say about you or to you. Don't feel compelled to turn it into something it's not as I'll not co-operate with you and your way of doing business.

There are a lot of people that I'd share my campfire with anytime and right up at the top of the list is Kirby, Shawn, Chris, Nate and a few others that don't come to mind right now because I'm not exactly calm, cool or collected and for that I apologize to those I've missed, but whom I consider to be friends.

Trust me when I say this, as it gives me great pleasure, if you ever see my campfire just keep on trucking as it's for friends and even some foes but not for you or your type as long as you conduct yourself the way you're now showing.

Say what you want to this and respond in your normal way as I'm sure you will. I've made my statement and expressed my opinion. This is the end of this, and you, for me.

There are two guys on the list that I have shot in matches with a lot.... I mean a lot (years) and I wouldn't let them rebarrel my BB gun. Putting out lists like this is somewhat dangerous. Good guys get omitted and some that do not deserve to be on the list get on it.

---Not hard to build a 1 moa gun

---Fairly easy to build a .5 moa gun

---Somewhat difficult to build .25 or less moa guns consistently since the smith is at the mercy of the barrel maker. But, when you pick one, the turn-key price will reflect the level of accuracy that he expects out of the gun.

Don't even ask abut the two guys I mentioned above because I will not divulge that information.

Go back ten years and check the names that were hall of fame caliber then and compare it to now. The names that show up on both the lists is a good place to start when seeking a precision shooting stick.

i can't speak of the guys on that list as i don't know them. but when i spent my money i went with some one that does what i wanted my rifle to do. If Kirby Allen isn't at the top of the list for long range shooting then I'm going to buy a BB gun for long range shooting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus he's also a great guy to deal with when i build another rifle i will be sending my money to Montana with all of the confidence in the word that i will get back what i wanted.
