    Well you have a great start.
    I have too many guns because I have run up on some super deals that I couldn't pass, compounded by the fact I dont really like to sell guns.

    Problem is it is an addiction....stop now while you can.

    i feel your pain. this is an addiction. i too have had deals that i couldnt refuse. in fact i have had these all built by nate in the last 14 months. i have others that are built by other smiths but nates work is impressive.

    I'm fortunate to own one of Nate's personal rifle. I'm pretty sure I will be adding more in the future. Nate is an excellent gunsmith and a hell of a nice guy.

    I might add that Toby is one heck of a shooter himself, in fact he wooped me in the last "F" class match!
    Toby the way that 6X47 shot in the last match I was thinking maybe you wanna bring it over and I'll do a little work to it so I have a chance in the next match ;)

    Gotta love the 6x47s:) I saw my gunsmith shoot 3 shots into a half inch outside to outside group at 630 yards yesterday. Too bad he shot 4 rounds. The first was off a clean barrel and it dropped out an inch or more, but those next 3 wow. Of course it helps that he was once the best shooter in the world, but he is about sold on the 6x47.

    the 6x47 is an incredible caliber. thats why i am thinking that the 22 caliber rifle that nate is building for me right now will be the 22-6.5x47, or 22-250ai.

    Nice collection

    tjonh2001,

    Those are some fine rifles. I really like the rifle in the fore-ground on the first photo. That paint scheme is awesome. Is the color molded in? or paint?

    By the way eddybo is one heck of a gun pimp. He's also one heck-of-a nice guy.:) His latest 6X47 is pure eye candy and shoots as good as it looks.

    WOW great looking rifles

    Very very nice!
    I have a 300RUM coming from Nate with a A5, Lilja barrel, Fluted Bolt, Badger Bolt Knob, Detach mag etc....seeing these pics doesn't help my anticipation....I can't wait.

    I am trying to decide which optic will sit atop this gun.....how would you compare your NF and IOR?

    What stock do you have on your 6x47? I'm curious if that's the Bell&Carlson A2 - it's a stock I'm considering.
