    Mike Norris

    I wanted to say a huge thanks to Mike Norris for sorting the problems I had with my new 243

    Background info
    I have recently had two rifles re-barreled by a so called custom rifle builder.

    The first rifle is a 204 R - the other is a 243. Both rifles are fitted with Pacnor tubes. Both rifles had serious issues which affected both the accuracy and safety of the rifle.
    This was down to the pi55 poor quality of work by the original rifle builder. ( I cannot say much more as this time as this saga is still ongoing )

    Despite leaving the 204 with the original rifle builder for a week or so - when asked, had he looked at the riflle - His reply was " Too buzy - Not had time mate "

    I contacted Mike Norris last Saturday morning - What a difference " Bring it straight down here and I will sort it " - I spent most of saturday afternoon with Mike watching him work and inspect every part of the rifle.

    The mans work is fantastic - a perfectionist and true craftsman that had time to sort somebody elses cock ups out.
    I only wish I had gone to him first and saved myself alot of money and stress.

    Thanks
    Alan

    Quite happy to let anyone interested know the details - These rifles where not just in-accurate but also had serious safety issues - I am very angry to say the least.

    Mike Norris seemed shocked that rifles in this conditon could leave a custom rifle builders workshop.

    Alan. I think we would all like to know the details. Can you have a think about how and when you can update this thread? Or ask the man concerned for a statement to post on his behalf?
    Regards JCS

    If serious safety issues are coming out of someones shop,................... people need to be brought up to date, for the chance to avoid a bad job going "Ti** up"

    Yes I think so too.

    2 rifles tested by Mike Norris in front of myself and a friend had serious issues with head space.
    This was born out by having serious pressure marks on my 243 cases even though I was using a starting load.

    I am visiting Mike on Friday to have the third rifle checked over as this too will not group. ( thats will be 3 out of 3 rifles having serious workmanship issues )
