    Very nice. Have you sold it yet? If not could you answer a few questions at the risk of showing my ignorance. What are the following abbreviations: HD, Fed GM, LW, Answer systems brake, HD bolt mod, 1.5 AICS bedded, 20moa base. Most of my custom rifles are hunting rigs not military snipers, hence the questions. Also how does Nightforce compare to Zeiss, Swarovski and Leupold? Thanks

    I'll chime in here for Drabchoi:
    HD- HD Rifles in Texas, owner Jeff Hicks
    Fed GM- Federal Gold Medal Match ammunition
    LW- Lothar Walther barrels
    Answer systems brake- Jeff Hicks got his start in gunsmithing at Answer, so he's partial to their brakes.

    HD bolt mod- putting three screws into the bolt handle of a Remington to re-enforce the solder joint.
    1.5 AICS- Accuracy Internatioanl Chassis System with adjustable cheek piece that has been skim bedded
    20 MOA base- It has 20 minutes of slope built into it to give your scope more elevation for shooting long range.
    From my experience as a guide and a hunter, the NightForce is by far tougher than Zeiss or Swarovski. Then Leupold is my second choice. In fact I saw more European scopes break and/or fail in the field under "Rocky Mountain" hunting conditions than I did all others combined.

    Chris, You almost got it right [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I got my start in gunsmithing about 15 years ago in my house. I had a terribly small basic gunsmith shop and only did minor work like parts replcements and hot water bluing.

    I then went to work at Bachelder custom arms where I did warranty work for most of the major manufacturers like S&W, Colt, Remington, Win ETC.

    I then went to Gander mountain.
    Then went to MC Sporting goods and headed up thier new gunsmithing section, built the shop for thier 1st one and went on to Answer Products as head smith for 3 years or so where I became more specialized in rifles and came up with the Ruger #1 Accurizer.

    Had a small hobby smith shop in Indiana and put out a few rifles from there and came up with the Remmy 3 screw mod.

    Now joined up with Clay in Del Rio and busy as hell.
