Vaultlock FM2 Build

Hi Guy`s,

I just bought a Vaultlock FM2 rifle in 6mmBR off a guy who built it in 98. Very well done by a very skilled hand. My question is, If a person was to get another one built, what might the cost be to do it?? I know the barrel choice would be a slight factor. Anyone else have one here?

    Re: Vaultlock FM2 Build

    The Vault Lock actions were designed by Frank & Mark DeHaas as 'home workshop' projects for the skilled craftsman. There is still a book available titled " Mr. Single Shots' Book of Rifle Plans" by Frank & Mark DeHaas. I know Brownells still has this cataloged. As far as getting one built, anyone who makes actions that will be for sale will need to have a FFL manufactures license, and will need a 'block' of serial numbers issued by ATFE. I highly recommend the book, even if you don't have the skills or desire to build the actions. There are NO pre-inletted or drop-in stocks for any of the actions described in the book. To build any of these requires machining/machine tool knowledge and much hand work and hand fitting. What you have is someones blood, sweat, and tears,,,,,,,, their treasure!
