A custom rifle, is just that. It will be whatever you wish it to be.
I will build to whatever specification you require in a gun. I will also offer advice, based on personal experience as far as is possible.
What I will not do, is sell you something that does not fit the purpose, nor will I sell you something that just happens to be in stock. I pride myself on customer satisfaction, that is only gained by supplying the correct rifle and calibre for the job. If I think a calibre isn't suitable for the job in hand, we will discuss it. I will not, however, sacrifice my reputation by building a gun unsuitable for purpose. After many years in the trade, the one thing i've found that brings people back...is honesty.
I tend to keep a large inventory of actions, barrels, and stocks, so rifles can be built in reasonable time frames. The fastest was 3 weeks, the average is 2-3 months. The proof house being the deciding factor, and how busy they are.
I will give you a timescale on ordering a rifle, based on parts in stock, and do my very best to keep to it. I do not charge for non stocked reamers, unless they are a true wildcat, where upon a 50% charge is made.
All custom rifles are subject to a 50% down payment, paying at the time of order. This is non returnable.
All gunsmith work is done on the premises by myself....no one else. There are a lot of companies about now who claim to build you a custom rifle, then farm the work out to half a dozen different people. This does not give satisfactory results, and a saleman is not the man to speak to, if the gun does not perform correctly, as he wont have a clue where to start.
