    Just wanted to let everyone know that if your looking for a gunsmith that has A#1 workmanship and customer service check out Deadly Precision Gunsmithing he is a sponsor here if you didn't already know.

    I recently had a few issues with a savage 110 fcp 338 lapua and after weighing my options decided to send it over to Lorenzo to have him work his magic on it which included installing a 30" 9.5 twist stainless fluted select match grade brux tube, truing the action, bedding the stock, and installing a badger ordanance fte break.

    Lorenzo called me about the time the rifle was finished and recommended going with black cerecote in the flutes of the barrell to kind of set it off and man did it work absolutley beautiful..

    Due to fire restrictions and being at the dentist more than work (four root canals and a wisdom tooth extracted this week) i haven't got as much time behind the trigger as I would like, but I have had enough to do some prelim load work and all I can say is WOW this thing is a shooter.

    I have forever asked myself if a custom gun was really worth it as I have several semi-customs that shoot extremly well....and Lorenzo proved to me that a custom even though the stock is a hs and the action and trigger is a savage is well worth the price...

    Well enough talk already i suppose you would like to see it...been trying to get a new pic of it all outfitted with the nightforce and triad cheek piece, but haven't got a picture near as good as this one and it doesn't do the rifle justice.

    If you have been sitting on the fence thinking about having a rifle built or some work done on one you already own I couldn't recommend lorenzo enough better hurry though I'm placing another order in for a full custom soon as the wifes not looking:D

    LOL we trust ya man. Nice looking stick.

    Maybe with it being summer it's time to start a new "gun porn" thread... I just finished a project so I may take some pictures and start it myself... .

    Sounds though like you really got exactly what you were hoping for in this one and couldn't have found a better man to do the job.

    Too be honest Grit would probably be embarrassed by this thread he isn't the kind of guy to brag, but I'll do it for him... It is really easy to tell when you have someone that cares about what they are doing and goes above and beyond to make sure the customer is satisfied. I don't post very often just mostly read the threads , but felt like the man deserved the props from a very happy customer.

    I have been talking to Larenzo for a while now and finally sent him an action, barrel, and a stock. He is great to talk to and work with. He has also helped out with a few decisions on the build. I will probably be sending him quite a few more builds in the future...

    I also went with Lorenzo from deadly precision for my build. I won the manners stock give away contest and that was all the incentive to get my build started. I was also on the fence as to get the rifle custom made or just get the stock to replace the factory stock on my rifle. I am glad I went with the custom build. I have a thread started on this site:
    http://www.longrangehunting.com/for...st-looking-help-first-build-92415/index3.html

    detailing my build and some pics are already posted of the before and I can't wait to post the after pics.
    I have to echo all the positive comments everyone has said about Lorenzo. He has been very helpful and returns calls and emails as late as 9:00 at night. He is customer service orientated and he keeps you informed as to the status of your build. Two weeks ago I got an email from him at 10:30pm letting me know that he got a shipping notice that my barrel was on the way!
    I gave him the basics on what I wanted and on the color and details I let him go with what he thought would look best and told him to surprise me. I can't wait to see the final product and I am sure I will be blown away.

    I woke up this morning to see this email in my inbox. It came in a little after midnight on a Sunday night Monday morning. I thought everyone would like to see this. Lorenzo really does care about keeping his customers informed about their builds. He is a great all around person to deal with and his love for what he does shows. He isn't a 8 to 5 Monday to Friday kind of guy but it looks like he is always working! Most of my contact with him has been after 8pm when he is doing the boring paper work of running a business. I hope he is keeping the Boss happy otherwise he might wind up sleeping in the shop! Happy wife=Happy life!::D

    to me
    Hey Bill,
    I spent the afternoon on your build. I've got the action trued. I took a few pics I'll forward later. The first challenge was removing the barrel. Removing factory barrels can provide good exercise. Remington uses a 450lb gorilla to wrench barrels on with NASA approved loctite. Several years to develop a bit of corrosion inside helped make this barrel particularly stubborn.

    Truing the action, I took time to note what it took to clean everything up. The face of the receiver showed no more than fifty percent contact. Obtaining a nice square face required removing six thousandths. The lug abutments required three thousandths to clean up. The threads were about average, slightly off center and out of parallel with the bolt. I opened the threads twelve thousandths to achieve perfect concentricity and alignment. The bolt is in the fixture, ready to cut the lugs and face. Typically, I remove one thousandths from bolt lugs and bolt face.

    I'll take pics as I go and keep you posted. I'll put up a thread if you like.

    Here's a pic my wife took before shipping. Of course, she forgot the magazine.:D I'm afraid the camera lense had a little cutting oil on it from me taking photos of running machinery. The rifle turned out very nice. The Savage action trued up nicely, a bolt lift and some polishing made it run smooth. With fresh paint, the HS stock looks and feels great. The Badger is a very effective brake. The rifle was a pleasure to shoot. My test group put four rounds into .25 with the first round opening the group to .5.
