    Here's the specs 7OO BDL action Trued, 300 RUM 27" Stainless fluted barrel, Holland Brake, Holland recoil lug, Wyatts Magazine, HS Precision stock, Factory trigger to 2LBS, New spring minus J lock, DNZ One piece scope rings, Swarovski A line 4x12x50 Duplex, built by Loren Peters in Washington state. Heres my question It has a blued action and a stainless barrel. I prefer the stainless look and am wondering if the Duracoat or Cerakote finish in stainless will match the barrel or do I need to do the action and barrel ? Coated that is. And who do you recommend in the northwest. I have seen a blued action with a bead blasted stainless barrel and to me it looks goofy.:rolleyes:

    Shawn Carlock does some sort of coatings and is in Rathdrum, Idaho. I know that he is one of the most respected smiths on this forum, and that dont come easy. Thats who I would talk to. ..::Defensive Edge - Custom Gunsmithing::..

    He came recommended to me and he seems knowledgeable. His Daughter is Laura Goetsch who is a National champion shooter. I dont have much knowledge on competition shooting but I know he builds her guns for competition shooting. His prices are the best I found also. Hes not on any forums or internet but if you want his number you can pm me.
