If I had the $ I'd buy a canyon rifle today but being a thrifty (cheap) kind of guy I have questions. I looked at the parts used to build the canyon rifle then priced them seperate. I then went to southern precisions website and priced the gunsmith work. I add all this up and it comes to right about $2500. Now that's with a rem 700 action not an aftermarket with a $1200 price tag but the price does include having the action trued and a DE style recoil lug installed. Add in a few other items like a rail, cheek piece and stock modifications and lets say an even $3000. Is there a reason to spend the extra $1120 for the canyon rifle? Might mean a extra year of saving but if the differance is that big it may be worth it.
