Special thanks to Ric Horst for answering my countless emails.

If anyone reading this needs a smith I suggest you talk to Chris Matthews at Long Shot Rifles. Chris is FIRST CLASS all the way! He was very patient with me and answered all my questions. He really went the extra mile in every respect. His attention to detail is remarkable. And he did exactly what he said he would do...build me my perfect rifle. Thank you Chris

see http://opsinc.us/ The people I talked to say it reduces the recoil more so than other brakes. I knew there wouldn't be to much with this rifle weighing 15lbs. But it turned out that there is ZERO recoil to speak of. I think it's due to the ops inc.
