    Custom Rifle

    Has anyone had a rifle built by Neil McKillop; what is it like to use?

    Not had a rifle built by him, but work on my rifle (Pillar bedding, Crown, trigger), Neil is a genuine guy who is always busy (not a bad sign!), there are a good few people on here like me who have had work done and rifles built by him, I have yet to hear a bad report and would recommend him in an instant.

    Yes I have and it's very nice to use, exactly what I asked for and extremely accurate.

    Quality work, see for yourself:

    Here's one I had built by Neil a few years ago and as with many others its a tack driver, also find him very easy to deal with.

    I have one rifle built by Neil. It’s a 223 with a tight neck and long throat. Long story short, Neil took the Stiller Tac 30 action and Jewell trigger and chucked the rest away. This was a new custom rifle I had made by someone else. It was supposed to be an accurate 600m rifle but after 500 plus rounds from new I could not get it to shoot anything better than .5MOA, on a good day with a following wind. It was cr@p.

    I’ve just worked a second new OCW load today. 22 rounds fired from start to finish. The average group from the OCW sweet spot was .164 from a three group sample with an ES 8 fps. I know this kind of result is not guaranteed, but it’s nice to see what a new toy can do when everything goes right.

    To say I’m happy with Neil’s work would be an understatement.

    I had a 6mmbr built by Neil on a Remington action the gun is still shooting 2" groups at 500yds,it is a rem varmint contour barrel so is used as high seat deer,fox rifle and long range varminter.
    Neil is a great guy to deal with,good value for money and delivers on time,I've also had other guns threaded by him and all work has been 1st rate.
