I needed pics of the stock so i could work out what colour coatings I want, so don't worry the barrel is there.

Re: Just ordered my 338 EDGE

Young and keen is great..but there are a few tricks that are only gained by building match winners. I have no doubt they build accurate rifles.

How many "F class open or standard have these rifles won.recently ? I know what won at Rosedale today..

It was Benchmark barrel..... Which barrel and action holds the F class National title.... ? Every minute detail counts.
Of course the shooter has a lot to do with it!

If I am spending that kind of money I need to know its the best built by the best in the country. If that means I have to wait 15 months so be it!

Who might we be referring to here?

Stock looks great Aussie LRH although you might have some probs closing the bolt ,what colours are you thinking for the metal work.
Is John painting it for you,i know a couple of years back he didn't touch duracoat and similar paints,i had to get mine coated elsewhere.

I was thinking the same....Giles is one of the best in the country some people must just think there is only one smith......I am not going for the F class championship I'm simply building a rifle to MY specs, and needs not a world beater but I'm sure it will be a tack driver.

Geoff from SLR coatings will be doing it, I am thinking something close to the tan in the stock, micro slick on the bolt.

Yes Sig you are right in what you say, but wait there is more......

Once again our highly skilled and extremely talented gunsmith and Australian Commonwealth Olympic champion shooter Geoff Grenfell cleaned up the entire show at Rosedale this weekend in F Class standard with a score of 298 out of 300.
This is a great testimony of Geoff's skills in building a match winning combination rifle with a Lawton action coupled to a Benchmark barrel .
In fact all events won either sported a Lawton action and / or a Benchmark barrel.
Not a bad compliment to pay in anyone's language.
There was no mention of any other so called quality actions and barrel combos winning anything.
Geoff has nearly finished building my 284 Winchecter F Class open rifle based on Lawton action with a Benchmark barrel due to be picked up this coming Friday, incidentally just in time for my birthday.
Looking forward to picking up my top class match winning rifle.
My second rifle a long range outfit is also being built by Geoff on a Lawton action coupled to a Lawton barrel is two weeks behind the 284 in arriving.
No doubt that one will also be a superb shooting rifle.
More on that later down the track.

I only seek the best from the best and have it built by the best...............the records are there and they speak for themselves .............there is no other option
