    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Yes that him. Have seen his website but don't know anyone who has had a rifle from him. Has he built guns for you before? What are his prices/build time like?

    Try devon custom rifles done me a great job on my sako 75 action rebarrel and pillar bed and a new stock great bunch of lads to deal with. They do there own actions as well a fast turn around time as well and a very good price I tried a lot of gunsmiths and they-offered the best price and turn around.

    Give NITROEXPRESS a try. He has just shipped in a batch of actions from the states (very nice I was looking at them the other day). Has a large selection of stocks in stock and ties with a number of excellent gunsmiths. He owns a number of custom guns as examples etc.

    I've used Chris Backburn/UK Gunworks, he knows his stuff.

    I also use Neil Mckillop (Mckillop Engineering) in Reading. Neil has just rebarrelled a T3 in .260AI for me, excellent quality of work.

    Chris fitted a new barrel to my Tikka T3 .243, fitted the GRS stock and lightened the trigger. The rifle shoots superbly, he wont let you down.
