    I reciently had a action and barrel put together by Nate and had him install one of his 3 port V-brakes on it , I was very impressed with his work.

    Now If I could just get my bolt back from Robar we can see how it will shoot.

    I have had a couple members E-mail me with remarks about "pimping him out" because I always put in a plug for him when I can. I see no reason why this guy can't get as much free advertisement as anybody else.

    If you have work done by any smith that you are happy or unhappy with the results with, by all means plug them all you can. Us smiths rely on word of mouth more then anything else to keep us un business.

    We can never have to many good smiths out there and when someone does good work, its good to hear about it!!! Us smiths appreciate the kind words we can get from our customers and I am sure Nate is happy to see this post.

    James,

    I am very thankful for all your comments and for all the jobs you've lined me up with. You have really gone above and beyond a great customer! And I will also say you have been a great source of information for LRH and I have learned plenty from your posts.

    And to those who were giving you a hard time about "advertizing" for me. I would like to say that I have not put James up to any of this and in fact James was so kind to ask my permission to put my contact info in his signature. Also I do not claim to build the best rifles out there, I just do the best I can with the knowlede I have to build rifles as best as I can.

    Thanks James for all your support.....

    BLAH, BLAH, BLAH- You guys are going to inflate his ego until they have to build a detour in I94 to go around his head. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Actually I have had the honor of visiting with Nate not only via internet and phone but in person. I can honestly say you will not find a more humble, GOD fearing, honest, friendly gun lover to carry on a conversation with. Not the blow smoke kinda guy that I have also run into way too many times. Haven't had any work done by him YET but again have been blessed with the pleasure of a couple of FTF visits. You deserve the recognition you are getting Nate as from what I have seen your talents and ethics are exceptional.

    Dennis,
    The highway department was out today measuring my head for the detour /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif looks like it's going to be a pretty big one....it may swing all the way down to Lemmon,SD /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif


    Thanks for the kind words,but the pleaseure was not all yours...I will have to say it was also a pleasure visiting with you about long range shooting. I will also add from the sounds of it you've built some pretty nice shooting rifles yourself.

    thanks for the plug
