    Hi guys

    I am new to LRH, I am starting to get into long range hunting and competition. the two builds will be a Howa in the .243 win flavor and a rem 700 7mm rem mag. i am looking for a gunsmith in wi that i can have blueprint, trigger work, and fit and finish stuff. I am from the southern part of wisco but i am not afraid to go any where in the state or just outside the state. I really looking for a good smith not just any Joe blow to do the work . Thanks for your help gun)

    Jim See is a sponsor on here. He goes by coyboy. Check out his website ~ centershotrifles.com he built a few guns for me and friends. Great work and they shoot! His shop is in the center of the state.

    Trying to revive this thread in need of a top notch smith in Wisconsin to blueprint a sako a7. I am from the oconomowoc area not sure if that is all that relevant other than closer to me is better. That being said willing to explore my options so long as the smith is known to be very good. First hand experience with smith is preferable is anyone can point me in the right direction here. Thank you.

    Jim Kobe over by the twin cities just did a rifle for me, and its a shootin' sonnova gun for sure, he's very well known in the bench rest game from what I understand

    With bartlein, Krieger, brux, and criterion barrels all in state you would think we would have lots of Smiths to choose from.

    I'm in the market for a new barrel on my M70.

    His site says IA which may not be bad drive for some.
