I know, I know, this isn't the place to be posting about Custom Rifles, but I was hoping I might get a select category of opinion if I launch this topic from one of the more technical sections of the forum.
I am looking to get a custom rifle made - goes without saying that I am after accuracy - but was looking for a practically tough, light-weight mountain rifle as may be styled by the Kiwis. Can anyone from their own experience suggest some better-value rifle builders ie. would it be financially sensible or even viable to get a rifle build in the States / NZ and import, or have a UK-built rifle?
Within the UK, who offers a good build for an affordable price? For example, I know Callum Ferguson builds v. good rifles, but he soars above my budget.
I want to emphasise I'd rather pay the money though if there is a risk the build won't be good. Any advice or experience-share appreciated.
