There's heaps of em'...........
The only one i can see in the mags similar to your description is Anglo custom rifle.
Hope this helps.
Eddy, Mark Crudginton near Marlborough is very good, my mate took a Howa there and within a week or so Mark had fiddled about with it and totally changed the bolt, balance and floated the barrel and done a few other bits.
He was also very reasonable in price.
I know about all those you mention, that is why I posted my post as 'a long shot' I am after a specific one that caught my eye.
I know Mark, but normally he would rather make one for you than sell you one off the shelf or tinker with one you already have and I can't justify spending that sort of money!!
The ad I saw rang a bell with me as if he was more down to earth than some of the other big money riflesmiths.
Was it Steve Bowers at Specialist Rifle Services?
Steve is going to be at the Cirencester Stalkers day on the 16th so I'll have a chat with him then.
I was at a BDS meeting one day a few years ago when Riflecraft were in attendance.
I picked a Howa rifle up to look at, no 'scope or mounts and it was a little heavier than I expected and it felt strange.
I mentioned this to one of the chaps there and he said 'huh you don't know much about rifles, when you have handled as many as I have you'll be able to tell all about them before you pick them up'
That may well be so, but I thought that was rather rude because he could not have been more than in his early thirties.
I'm nearly seventy and have handled rifles/shotguns all my life as a Sporting hobby and professionally.
So I didn't order my new rifle from them!!
Steve is a gem and would appear to be ideally located for you too. I have no reservations in recommending his services.
sounds like the rhinorifles.co.uk add that was in Gunmart
some time ago.
Try their website.
I think that might have been the advert I saw.
I am now well placed to make a decision, thanks to you all.
This modern technology stuff is fantastic stuff isn't it.
