I've only been looking for this **** disk for about four years! Finally stumbled onto it today.

Two of my favorite guns that I've built for someone. Did these as a pair back in 2001 for a gent down in AZ.

It was Christmas time, hence the paint choice! Nothing like being FESTIVE!!

These were done "old school". I had a 1947 J head Bridgeport and a Jett lathe that should have been turned into fish habitat long before I got a hold of it. started as flat top stocks and a box of parts. I layed that carbon in the barrel channel by making a casting mandrel and then grafting it to the barrel channel after I machined it. Fun stuff!

Miss those days sometimes. Anyone have any competitive smallbore guns they want built??!! I NEED a fix!!

Enjoy.

These rifle are pieces of art. The fit and finish of your work that you post is perfect. If my rifle looks as good as these I may just hang it on the wall to look at!

Wow Chad! They look great. Almost makes me want to dig my old 1413 out of the back of safe and send it your way. But then I'd have to decide between three guns instead of just my 1813 and custom 52D in a anschutz prone stock. No, I'm set with a dedicated prone gun, dedicated position gun and a decent back up gun. But if I ever need to upgrade...

Nice looking rifles.
