I need a gunsmith, preferably in Central Texas, to put together a rifle for me. The smith I was planning to try is not taking on any new work for the foreseeable future. Trying to build a long range 65 shooter off of a remington action. Need it trued, rebarreled, barrel blued or coated or whatever, stock bedded, maybe a new trigger installed.

Any recommendations of cost effective, but decent builders would be greatly appreciated. I can't afford a GAP etc., I am not a competitor either, but don't want a shade tree mechanic either.

I would prefer somewhere in central Texas, but will travel or ship if I have to.

Thanks!

Long Rifles, Inc. (LRI) has been running a special on blueprinting Rem 700 actions and spinning on a barrel. You would need to supply the barrel. They are well-known for quality work and accuracy in the shooting community. Go to Sniper's Hide - Long Range Shooting, Precision Marksmanship, Gear Testing & Reviews - Scout Front Page and look in the "Group Buy" section. Best deal going right now with reasonable turn around times.

Awesome, I will check that out ASAP. Thanks for the help!

One of my buddies had a 300 PRC built by a smith up in Azle, Tx. Can’t remember his name, but a google search would probably find him. I think I remember him telling me he specializes in chassis type rifles, but will do whatever you want. He says his rifle shoots lights out.

Sierra Two Industries in Bismarck, ND has put together 3 rifles for me so far and is in the process of the 4th. He has done all the things you listed to the rifles he has built for me and I'm more than happy with the results. Contact number is 701-425-0710.

I have a few customers that have used Alonzo Custom Rifles (713-283-4384, [email protected]) and were pleased. My customers that have used him shoot long range competitions and are well educated in shooting so I trust their recommendation. Of course it makes it more convenient that he is in my area too.

I wouldn't be be a bad idea to have a final post that collects all of the recommendations into one post at the end. Once I get some time, I may do that for someone who searches for this in the future.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
