I have had 2 rifles built by Bull Mountain Rifle right here in Blgs. He is a stand up guy with no BS. He's located just west of Yellowstone Golf Course off Rimrock Rd. If you want to see his work or any further details just PM me - be hsppy to help in any way I can.

    Another option to consider is Joe Starnes (LongShot Rifles) in Conrad and Dave Young (Young's Gunsmithing) in Tracy. If you contact Jeff (BROZ) he can give you more insight, both had built awesome rigs for him.

    I believe Joe Starnes built him a .338 LM before he moved in MT but cannot find the thread (for now ...).

    Good luck.

    Pete Forthofer in Whitefish. Great guy, lots of knowledge, excellent and quick work, and honest as the day is long.

    Joe Starnes built a 243 AI for me that is amazing. Gentry Custom in Belgrade has built me nice stuff too. Dave Young is working on a 30-06 AI for me now as well and seems like a heck of a guy.

    Spread the wealth I guess. I'd use Kirby Allen but I am too impatient to wait that long for a gun.

    Thanks guys for all of the help. Having Bull Mountain Rifles in Billings do the upgrades for me. Funny thing is I didnt now he existed and he is only a couple of miles from me. Good shooting to all, Craig

    There are no "GOOD" smith's in the Billings area period. I've seen and had done work by the " good "ones. Not anymore.
