TESTIMONIALS FOR VALKYRIE RIFLES

Had a 'pepper pot' type muzzle brake fitted to my 8 x 57js Blaser barrel by Dave, from posting to the finished barrel returning to me in N. Wales was an amazing 3 days. Tried it in my quarry today the rifle has been transformed big reduction in recoil, so much so the Aimpoint sight does not move off the target an absolute must for that 2nd shot on driven boar. A huge thank you to Dave for his work & advice on choice of 'brake'. As an addition Dave has, over the years worked on all 5 of my rifles, why go anywhere else.

I called in with my AR to have a quad-rail fitted, I forgot to make an appointment, but he still did it for me anyway, and within 20 minutes I was on my way back home, he is a top bloke and very good at what he does, cheers Dave.

Well i rang dave at 8.55 wanting a slot for a CZ 17 hHMR barrel shortening, re threading, crowning, and advice about a mark in the barrel nothing too taxing for a man of Dave's capabilities but I'm amazed at how things went,"bring it down lets have a look"he says, by 9.30 I'm in the workshop,9.45 after a borescope and been assured the marks a factory machine mark the barrels in the lathe,10.15 the jobs done quick cup of coffee and I'm back on the motorway, 12.00 the guns back together and I'm off to try it out, it shoots bang on and dare i say better than before, I'm amazed this quality of workmanship while you wait its a credit to the man friendly, honest, free advice, and he lets me sit there and drink his coffee as well as chatting while he's working, now obviously he cant do this all the time but he fitted me in and in 3 1/2 hours I'm sorted and back on zero, who else would do that, all the best mate and long may you and your venture reign you deserve it.

 My CZ455 had very poor bedding so after researching gunsmiths and talking to Dave I gave him the job. Dave is a very straightforward person to deal with, has great knowledge and admirable skill. I am most satisfied with the job and Dave will be the first choice for any other smithing work.

 Dave re-barreled my .25-06 for me and while it was in he gave it a full bedding job and finished it off with Cerakote Armour Black. It looks amazing and shoots even better. I'm getting sub 3/4" @ 150 yds with factory ammo! Can't wait to see what it can do with some load development. Top job Dave thank you.

Kevin Warner

Very pleased Gamekeeper

 

 This is the third time I have used Dave to work on my Remington 308. This time he fitted one of his muzzle brake, the difference is astounding it has reduced to recoil by 70% it now feels like my .223. If you are having trouble with recoil gives him a call you wont be sorry

Trevor North

 I would like to thank Dave for the excellent work he has done to two of my rifles. The bedding for one has taken the grouping down to putting bullets though the same hole repeatedly! The quality of workmanship is second to none, and at a realistic and very acceptable price. With my latest rifle just back, and taken out for its first outing i can safely say, Dave, once again you have not let me down!!

George

Very happy hunter!

 

After purchasing expensive component parts from different suppliers and manufacturers for my first custom rifle I wanted a paint job to not only to match but to be done right. After contacting Dave and discussing my requirements I decided to choose Cerakote in armour black. The communication, price, speed and end result is what you might expect, but in this case is what was delivered. I could not be happier with the end result. Use Dave with total confidence. I know I will.

I bought my .223 Remington Tactical with a Bell & Carlson stock and trigger job already installed by Dave, it was a great rifle. I decided to get a floorplate installed to increase capacity and have the barrel threaded. After getting the rifle back just a week later I was seriously impressed with the quality of the inletting and how incredibly precise the threading and invisible cap were. Amazing workmanship and service, thanks again Dave!

Happy Valkyrie Remington Customer

Dave hi, I just wanted to email you this image I thought you might like for your website. Having just found you on the web, it was these images and the testimonials that gave me the confidence to give you the job of coating and threading my rifle. This confidence was justly rewarded with good advice, excellent workmanship and rapid results. Many thanks for your help in this regard and anyone who reads this will do well to give you their business. Kind regards Best Ed

kris

 

Cerakote, Duracoat, Cerakote, Duracoat.... And the decision? Cerakote! Love it! Great finish, looks as tough as nails and tests seem to say so. Dave was brilliant, a guy who is well into what he does and very helpful. Turnaround was excellent. He did the action, barrel and mod and the whole finish is superb. Would definitely recommend him. Thanks Dave

Dave extended my Escort Hatsan 7 shot magazine tube to an 10 shot capacity, the gun will now hold 11 shells, 1 in the chamber 10 in the tube, the job was done quickly and at a very reasonable price and dave is an pleasure to deal with. in summary excellent job done and will definitely receive more custom from me!

Dave has an absolute amazing ability. I sent my Remmy 700 over to get modified and the difference is astounding! I could not be happier with the work undertaken and am a very happy owner! Thanks for the hard work Dave! I look forward to doing business with you again. Thanks

Cheers Dave for doing a super job on finishing the stock on my F class rifle. I can see all the hard work put into it and the number of coats of clear coat applied. The depth of finish is superb and it looks like looking into a crystal clear stream and still being able to see all the detail at the bottom. Thanks again. Dave Lloyd

David Lloyd

Superb finish on my F class stock

 

I would like to thank Dave for the first class work no my rifles?. The moderator on my 223 is a dream come true also, the tactical bolt conversion has totally revamped the gun. Remington 308 LH new 10 shot mag conversion and altered the bolt to a tactical one by hand is superb, He also rebedded the action at the same time, and He did that for free. The advice and help I have had has helped me no end, its like a one to one tuition. A highly skilled work at down to earth prices

I had a 22 Rimfire Magic built and Dave coated the rifle, stock, and moderator in green, proper head turner, But the Fluted Bolt he's done on my Remy 700 in AICS stock other shooters can't keep their hands off, just looks stunning Big thanks Dave Alan Meeds

Chuffed to bit's

 

 I sent my 22RF to Dave for him to screw cut the barrel. A somewhat minor job for a rifle builder. So I assumed it would take its turn down the list to be fitted in between bigger jobs. To my surprise, I returned home in less than a week to read an e-mail that the work was already finished and was awaiting payment and return. A real neat and professional piece of work topped only by his excellent customer service. My first time in dealing with Dave and he is to be recommended

 Dave has just built me a stalking / hunting rifle in .280 rem. Where do l begin and for that matter where do l finish in my praise for the man and his work? I wont go through the complete spec. but if anyone wants to check it out feel free to email me via dave. I will just say that if you had to go into the wild with one trusted mate he would be a sure bet. He wont let you down, Get on the phone and order that rifle of your dreams... lifes too short, just do it !!

The man did it again. AICS have just brought out the AICS AX stock. Available as a chassis from Sporting Services. So it an email to Dave can you do it? Course I can, got the stock shipped to Dave (which he hated at first sight) and then worked up the spec with his input (don't even try and get him to fit something that he doesn't?t think is up to the mark) Valkyrie Action, 30 inch Border cut barrel, Duracoate etc etc. It should be on Dave?s gallery by now. What is even better is that I could even choose my own serial number ? how cool is that. It is absolutely the dogs do dahs, will shoot through the same hole at 100 yards no problem. Haven?t tried it at 1000 but am confident , apart from an old man?s eyesight, I will get that target. Dave is the man, the end product he produces is just spectacular. By the way Dave did change his mind in the end and agrees with me the ACIS AX stock is really good ? see he is wrong sometimes.

Excellent communications & very fast turn around. Sent my Rem700 bolt to Dave on Saturday to have a tactical bolt knob fitted & received it back job done by Tuesday 1pm. Not cheap, but then this level of service is rare in a Gunsmith today & worth every penny. I know who I'll contact for similar jobs in future.

GREAT RIFLE Dave has just built me a 308 Valkyrie magazine action long range target rifle, using a 30inch border barrel, Jewell trigger, Vais muzzle break, the action and barrel were bead blasted to match and bedded into an AICS stock, at 600 yards it shoots V bulls with ease. I will be shooting at 1000 and 1200 yards in the near future. With Dave's advise I am using a Nightforce 12-42x56 NSX scope with a NP-2DD reticle. I must thank Dave for his advise and skills in producing an accurate rifle, and all in 8 weeks. Stephen Dennick

Dave built me my very first custom: .223 Valkyrie repeater action, Shilen 1:14 barrel, AICS stock and Jewell trigger. Can't begin to boast how damn good looking it is! Until you get the rifle in your hands it's hard to appreciate the level of craftsmanship Dave puts into his work. No photographer on the planet could capture his gift of gunsmithing. The finish is exhibition-grade stuff, the action is flawless and I'm already getting cloverleaf groups at 100m after only 25 rounds of load development!! Now if that isn't testament to his skill I don't know what is! If I ever find anything larger than Charlie to shoot in West Wales I'll be getting myself another custom from Dave ASAP. Cheers Dave.

Bleddyn Edwards

VERY happy Welshman!

 

A fantastic Duracoat job on my RM10/22, finish is awesome. Dave always has the time to stop for a chat despite him clearly being very busy and his skill, knowledge, and enthusiasm are beyond question. I'll only be phoning one 'smith when it's time for a custom rifle.

Dave fitted a new bolt handle refitted and regulated the trigger and did so at my conenience fitting the job into my visit schedule to the North East. Great service skilfully done absolutely no hesitation in using him again or in recommending him to others.

I recently bought a Remington 700 SPS Tactical, with the 20" heavy barrel and I found that with the Warne scope rail fitted, I couldn't get my sausage fingers in to load the 4 rnd internal mag, so I decided to buy a magazine conversion and have it with a 10 rnd mag. I sent the stock and the kit up to Dave and I thought I would have a very long wait, but the newly equipped 700 was back in my hands after only a few days. I fitted everything back together after giving it a really good look over and I couldn't believe how perfect a job Dave had made of it. I've only put about 50 rnds through it, since the conversion, but it cycles perfectly, it never missed a beat during all 5 loads and it makes the rifle look the business. It must have been a pain to hold it still, in the jig for machining, with it having a Hogue over moulded stock. But he did it and I'm more than happy with his work and I have no hesitation in recommending Dave. Baz, a chuffed customer

Totally Chuffed & Over The Moon, First Time Customer

 

Just wanted to say thank you for your expert and friendly advice while i deliberated over what i wanted you to do to my Remington 700 (.243) The finished rifle not only looks the business, but has been re assembled with obvious quality and care. After all the work you carried out, the new lighter trigger is the icing on the cake, it's so smooth, I can't believe the difference it's made to the accuracy of my shooting, it's great! I will certainly be using your services again and will have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends. Thanks again!

Pete Butler

Very Satisfied 1st Time Customer

 

After contacting and harassing Dave over e-mail and in person. I wanted a 10 shot AICS magazine for my custom Remington 700 6 mm BR. He tested, assessed and discussed the options, then fitted his proprietary designed magazine system using AICS magazines. Lots of people say the 6mm BR wont mag feed at all, especially from a 10 shot detachable magazine........ well this one sure does, and reliably too! Also impressed with the HK black Duracoat that was applied, it finished the rifle of perfectly! Stock fit and inletting are perfect. Will certainly be returning for future work and a re-barrel! Great expanding workshop and facility's too! Unfortunately for Dave, he now has me as a returning customer! Cheers, Dan.

Dan Owen

Happy smiling shooter.

 

You will see my rifle on the SYSS gallery. I think it was one of the first .308 custom rifles that SYSS built when Dave was with them. What ever I go with it it draws attention. Various shooters have tried it and all have said its one of the best they have ever shot. Nothing is too much trouble and the care and attention is first class as are the prices. Go on and treat yourself you wont regret it.

Trevor Maxim

An ecstatic customer

 

I have a Lawton 0.308, with a fluted Pacnor barrel, M5 stock & jewel trigger that Dave built for me. Its my first custom rifle and I'm absolutely delighted with it. The rifle works flawlessly, the bedding is perfect, and the invisible barrel thread protector is just that. Built by a Craftsman, not just a gunsmith. Thanks Dave.

Graeme Moss

Delighted Customer

 

Dave built my 6mm BR in a Sako 75 action bedded in a macmillan a5 with border archer barrel only words to describe are "TACK DRIVER" hit the fly at Diggle 3 times in the same comp and put in a 2 inch group at 500 my first time out!! he also tricked up my Remington 1187 shotgun for practical shotgun comps. very nice work dave very very nice work!

Damian Swift

Dave built me a custom surgeon in .308 the craftsmanship was flawless. This combined with his enthusiasm and knowledge makes it a pleasure to deal with him. He is always on hand to offer advice and nothing is ever to much trouble. He is a first class gunsmith whom I intend to use again in the very near future

The level of service was only beaten by the quality of his workmanship. Absolutely Superb

Mark Kaye

Happy Chappy

 

Dave has built several rifles for me to date and frankly I would not have anyone else build them! With a real eye for detail and drive for perfection I know my rifles will function flawlessly and look great, making my customers (and me) very happy. The real test is performance and reliability in the field and this is where his quest for perfection really shows! Fit, finish and Dave's particular skill and flair for Dura-coating mean that all my future orders will be with Valkyrie!

Having shot out my tikka M595, i was looking for a person to build me my first rifle... Dave was that man, After asking the usual questions, other's tried to steer me to calibre's of "Their" choice.... dave was most helpful, quick with e-mails AND answers, And most professional, Needless to say i'm over the moon with the results... Another point which impressed me was that it was a one stop shop, Everything done under the one roof during the build, Quality control at its best... Highly recommended...

Dave, what can I say? My 260 is superb, your advice and workmanship were excellent and the rifle was delivered when promised. You are now MY, Trusted Go-To Gunsmith. A very satisfied customer.

I have one of Daves Remy 700s in a AICS stock in .308. I love the rifle, it shoots like a dream. It has won the uk varminting annual shoot early this year. It also won factory class in this years fly shoot at Diggle, hitting the fly in the process. A great piece of kit put together by a great guy. Cheers Dave!!!!!

John Anderton

Dave's work rocks!.... :-)

Paul Tasker

Dave's the man

 

Until I bought my first rifle from Dave I had no idea what was actually possible regarding accuracy ...having only shot factory rifles beforehand. Wow!........ Suddenly getting reliably tight groups from a stunning tactical rifle in .308 was a revelation...and it looked damned good too! Since then I have had Dave build me a 338 Lapua Magnum and a Remington 260 ...both fantastically accurate (when I hold them straight) and the Duracoat paintwork is truly a work of art in each case. Dave is the Biz! Dave Thain

Dave Thain

Very happy Customer!

 

I can honestly say that the rifle Dave built for me is the most accurate rifle I have ever owned. I have owned a few too! I won the McQueen league at Diggle in 2009 and have never been out of the top three every time I have shot the McQueen at Bisley ( getting beaten by Dave a few times) He has put together my FAC Shotgun which I came 11th overall in the 2010 national Championships, this was my 1st ever target shotgun comp. I am an apprentice trained Engineer and Dave's work rates as the best I have seen. Results with the rifles he builds speak for themselves. Awesome!

Tim Finley

Shooter and media whore

 

I have one of Dave's .308 blueprinted Remy 700 actions with an Archer heavy match barrel and a Wild-dog stock. It's a .308, but holds its own against fancy high BC calibers in McQueens regularly placed in the top 3 with the odd No.1 slot. Did I mention it was a .308? Quite apart from its top-drawer performance is the quality of the workmanship - even if I didn't shoot it I could sit and look at it all day long. It's a pleasure to own a gun from a gunsmith who takes professional pride in his workmanship and who judges his guns by their accuracy. Cheers Dave.
