    As usual, first class stuff.;) Thanks for the pics and descriptions.

    I'd say there are going to be 3 very satisfied and happy customers in a very short time. Having been in their shoes before, I can tell them that they are in for a treat and some great shooting.

    Some very interesting combinations. It's always interesting to see what others consider to be their optimum choice in a custom gun.

    If they hang out here, I'll be looking forward to some future posts about how they shoot.;)

    Some very nice glass on the rifles and hardware.

    The A5 on the 338 Edge has very interesting colors which I like a lot.

    Thanks for the pictures

    Kind of cruel Kirby....

    Even though I know that mine is several months away from being finished, I was hoping to see it in the line up. These photo's have definitely increased my anticipation level.

    I'm sure I'll end up breaking in that 300 RUM. The owner is a friend of mine but doesn't spend time on any forums.

    He was giddy like a school girl when I emailed him the pics.

    I'm sure there will be plenty of pics, we put out steel plates from 450-1000 yards. Plus he's heading to Colorado and Texas this year. I'll be sure to send him with plenty pieces of white cardboard and a good sharpie.:D

    I think it's only right for you to send me one of those to use while I'm waiting for mine. In fact, I think it should be a shop policy to offer loner guns while you wait. They look awesome! You'll have to post pictures of the pair when they are done.

    What he said:) Where is my loaner 338AM Bat action in an A5 with a NXS is preferable.

    Nice lookin rigs.

    BTW you do not have to break my barrel in just send it to MS with some load data and some brass as quick as you can. My August Oryx hunt is looming.....I am getting nervous. I have plenty of other guns but I hopefully want to my first 500+ yard animal to be shot with a 338AM.

    Kirby, those are fine looking rifles. Sincerely, I'm very glad I had you build me a 270 AM.

    I for one wished Kirby had a website...Be nice to see these rifles transform on machines. A 7MM AM on a Nesika action is on my wish list.

    I would kill for the RUM rig. But, I guess maybe a second job, or gathering aluminum cans, or selling plasma.....somehow. Awesome rifles Kirby. mtmuley

    This makes me more excited about my build. Just 2 months into it ,the wait is going to be a killer.

    A web page may be a reality here in the next few months. I will certainly keep all of you posted as things progress.
