    Some of these pictures were done professionally by a guy out in Washington State (Turks Head) I built this rifle in 2004 for a friend who was on the 2003 US Palma Team.

    1.350 Nesika J action
    Mark Chanlynn Medium Palma Contour barrel
    RPA quadlock ladder front sight
    Warner Tool rear sight
    Warner/Robertson prone stock (L/H)
    Grunig/Elmiger FT 300 two stage trigger (action modified to fit)
    Sunny Hill Trigger guard


    Stock gutted and reinforced with carbon twill weave.
    This one also got my "Frankenstein" bedding experiment. (seems to work. . .)
    Finally, all painted up in that sick looking 2001 Suzuki GSXR sportbike blue. (I used mine at the time for inspiration)

    Enjoy.

    Here's basically a carbon copy in red that I built in 2005 for Kyle Leibertrau. This kiddo went on to become the 2007 world long range champion with this rifle. Both individual and Team events. Only real difference is the stock, this is a Robertson H/H prone with the same carbon and bedding "tricks".

    Thanks for the interest.

    Chad,

    You are certainly a craftsman at your trade.

    Very nice work.

    BTW: Just (less than an hour ago) bought my CNC mill for action work. Working on another one right now for stocks.

    Got my Brown/Sharp surface grinder on the way and my Wilson hardness tester and Mitutoyo Optical Comparator and metrology software package.

    Wheeewww.

    Hasn't been a good day for the savings account and visa card!

    Hopefully by this winter or later in the spring I'll be set up and running under my own name.
