i'd like to throw a plug out to a gunsmith that is a sponser here , i hired him to do some work for me after talking to him a few times on the phone about what components to use and reamer design.
i found him very helpfull and patient with me .
when the rifles were done he shipped them to me , and that's when the problem started .
the shipping agent took NO care in the delivery process and damage to my new barreled action was mostly cosmetic , but there was a few deep dents and scratches . i called the smith and i was very impressed on the attitude he took on the whole situation . you learn the most about people when the chips are down . he IS truely concerned about his customers satisfaction !!
he sent me a shipping label and paid for the return shipping to him and fixed the damage and shipped it back to me , the turn around time was 8 days , with shipping time .
he did an excellent job on the fix and made sure i was satisfied with the outcome.
he has earned my future biusness .
i can tell you if your planning a build , or just looking to buy some of his inventory, buy with confidence. he will go above and beyond to make you happy .
now to top that , all that happened 2 weeks ago , this past wkend i got the time to shoot the new rig after fitting the stock to it , and it shoots very well , so his craftsmanship is right on also .
the smith : "barreled by harold "
most of the time you only here about the bad deals people have , so i thought i'd even it up some and let you all know about a stand up man that knows how to build a rifle .
thanks for your time
