Thread: New look for my rifle

  1. #1

    New look for my rifle

    Just given my Sako 75 S/S a makeover.
    We'll after a very long wait and being messed about something terrible, my new stock finally turned up.
    It's a Joe West in mountain camo. Great stock, awful service!!!!!

    I then bit the bullet and got the barrel and action cerakoted in 'titanium', I had the magazine done in 'Safety orange', and the mod I think was OD green.
    This was done by Tactical Coatings, an absolutely first class job.
    I must admit I wasn't 100% on the colours matching but I was assured by them they'd look good.
    I'm very pleased I listened to them.

    Out of interest,how do you go about having a rifle action/barrel etc cerakoted,do you have to deliver the rifle in person or what,and what sort of price for action/barrel/mag/mod?

    I took mine down in person, I'm glad I did as I got to see previous work.
    Also it's ok looking at colours in pictures but nothing quite like seeing them in the flesh.
    Price wise, to get all this done and my Benelli s/a barrel, action, and mag tube done was 340.
    Which included stripping down, removing scope and remounting.
    All done in 10 days too.

    Looks good, very good, nice to have a fresh start to an established shooter... I did something similar with my Hmr but In Royal Camoflauge..once again Joe West Stocks, nice woodwork, but bloody awful, I'll say that again, bloody awful service... And I really don't know why, though I have my suspicions.... Still we get there In the end and it's worth It...Cheers

    I toyed with the idea of getting it coated. But covering a 2k scope ?
    Not for me.

    I think we need to arrange a 'clay day'. Just to sort the men from the boys.

    As I understand it, having overheard him in conversation about this very point at the Bisley Phoenix meeting, he just doesn’t do keyboards (e-mail) and spends all his time in the workshop turning out product.

    Clearly a case of a small, burgeoning company struggling to find the balance and resource in such matters?

    I tried one of his thumbhole with finger groove stocks as per picture and it could have been cast from my hand it fitted so perfectly.

    It is a cracking stock, but to be told 1 month delivery from date of order to ending up at nearly two and a half months before delivery is just not good enough.
    It wouldn't have be so bad if I'd been told if there were problems, or hold ups. I can understand a small/new firm being busy at start up, BUT without any customers they won't last long, and word soon travels.

    I'm thinking of restocking another rifle at some point, and guess who won't be in the running for the job.

    No need for big targets, well not with a shotgun. Shown them how to do it more than once mate.
    We could always get the trap out here and have a competition for a few burgers.

    Ps. don't mention crows to Mark.
