    Time to build a true f-class rifle as my hunting rig has close to 1000 rounds on it already this summer in f-class. Looking for a very competent builder who has attention to detail for a full f-class build. Hoping I can keep it somewhat local in the MN/ND area. Comments/info appreciated,
    Many Thanks, Eric

    I would recommend Jim Kobe 10841 Oxborough Ave. So. Bloomington, MN 55437 USA Voice: 1-952-884-6031.

    Jim does the barrels for some of the top F-class shooters in MN, his rates are good and his turnaround is amazing. I think he will have done 7 barrels for me by the end of this year and about the same last year.

    Steve Wald of Wald Precision Rifles in Mandan ND. Call (701) 527-6447.

    He and Nate D work together on projects and are professional friends. Steve is also a shooter with wood to back it up. 2007 ND F/O champ, ironically Nate won in 2008.

    Steve has done three chamber jobs for me and will continue to get my business.

    I have had Jim build me a dozen rifles, he is a member of the Custom Gun Guild and does great work.
