    I have one on my custom 300 win. Beautiful machine work, tight tollerances and some of the finest people to work with you will find at any company. They offer lots of options too.

    I got one recently and feel the same as Broz. Smooth as glass. My next custom action will be a defiance

    I have one on my 338 Norma, I love it . Makes you wish you had all customs. They made 3 test type drop ports for some friends of mine. They in turn helped advise a friend on his build, and that guy shot a 1oo target in his first 1000 bench shoot. They have 20 + people working right now and are busy.

    I hope not toooo busy!! They told me my Defiance left hand right port drop port for my comp. rifle will be done around mid March. I have owned several and they are nice. It was also about $200 cheaper than Bat.

    Boss Hoss you going to make it to Ca. in April? I am guessing maybe July of this year for me to get to a match. That is if the rifle gets done. Richard was telling me the way they setup things he should make it to all four nationals this year. He is 1 point away from NBRSA and made the Hall of Fame a couple years ago for IBS. I think he has been competitng less than 15years now.

    Jeff your making me drool!

    What brake is that?

    What could I expect to pay for that action w/rail just like yours?

    Their website doesn't tell you much but they win for best photos!
