    I don't own a LSR nor have I ever had my hands on one, but if I ever come up with enough cash to have a true custom built, Chris M is on a very short list of smiths that I'd have do the work. Never heard or read a bad thing about his work.

    You are in good hands. I have two and no complaints. Mine are medium weight hunting rifles that shoot more like bench rifles.

    I am thinking of using a Leupold VX-3 3.5-10-40 scope and Leupold dual dovetail mounts is this a worthy set-up or what would you recommend for mounts??

    I just had Chris build me a .308 that is just magnificent. Throughout the build he responded to all of my changes and issues with great professionalism and guidance. The rifles accuracy is astounding! You cannot go wrong with LSR.
