Thread: Which custom rifle for that big birthday would be your choice ?

  1. #1

    Which custom rifle for that big birthday would be your choice ?

    Ok, I have a big birthday next year and was planning on that custom rifle in 308 win and then a special hunt to go with it, I have been looking around and have narrowed it down to three in the U.K..

    Precision rifle services - Ultimate
    Lawrence precision - Titanium, as I current use their moderators which are class...
    Brock & Norris - Ratel

    Do any of the members have any feedback on the above, experience with any of the above, as I have never gone custom before...any suggestions guidance would be very much appreciated.

    But then I am old fashioned. It isn't a very likely acquisition though.

    are these not just off the peg suggestions for custom rifles rather than true custom rifles. Why not select the stock, barrel and action yourself and get exactly what you want. Saying that you have chosen three mighty fine options but I think the only way to choose between them is to handle them yourself

    Have a word with Steve Bowers if you want true custom

    If it was me I would get the TT Proctor that's for sale one here and spend the rest on trips

    Callum at prs built my 7mm 08 to my spec. I've known him for around 20 years, and his work is better than first class. So he would get my vote.....
