Re: another 280 AI

I wish Dan did not have his level of integrity. I just left his shop....empty handed even after trying to snake this gun from it's rightful owner. Dan just said it was "sold". I may not have carried the gun out, but I left with a firm understanding of how awesome Dan's guns are. He had just finished the 4th cleaning of this rifle and asked me if I wanted to give her a go. I of course jumped at the opportunity. He set me up on his 100 yard range, and I settled in behind this jewel. He had already shot the center target, and told me to do the same. Had I known what I was going to do, I would have taken pictures before and after each shot. The top 3 holes were from individual shoot and clean, and there were three holes about the size of a nickel an inch high. My three rounds went inside the three holes and inch high. Still breaking this gun in, and it is shootin sub-.5 MOA. Amazing. It is hard not to have a grin on your face after you shoot one of Dan's guns, but it would be impossible for anyone to shoot this gun and not want to carry it home. With the weight of the gun and the break, very light felt recoil, and I did not measure the trigger, but it was a crisp break at about 6 to 8 oz at most. The picture below tells the tale of how this gun shoots...just as sweet as the one I got my father last year....the one 72 year old man was making #8's and snowmen with bullets touching at 500 yards.

Wow, a Brux barrel, Nightforce scope, McMillian stock, Stiller action, SSG brake, and Jewell trigger makes for one heck of a combo! I am having Nate put one of his brakes on our current build and cant wait to see how effective it is.

Nate's brakes work awesome! I have one on my 300 Jazz and it feels like I'm shooting a 243.

Another gem from Dan, and looks awesome! If anyone is considering a new build you really need to talk with Dan Glover at DCGS. On time, on budget and, as you can see, his rifles are beyond accurate.
