I spoke to Callum today at precision rifles regarding having some work done on my rifle...
he seemed very pleasant & helpful on the phone! was just wondering if anybody has had any work done with them?
I will second that - as far as hunting rifles are concerned. There is 1 smith just as good when it come to single shot / target rifles and that is Pete Walker.
In fairness to Russ Gall I will wait and see how my 22-250AI turns out, I may add his name later!
I have had rifle work done elsewhere with reputed smiths, and have concluded that I will simply adopt the old adage "buy once cry once"!
Callum and Pete, (and maybe Russ!) will always get my work from now on.
I have known Callum for a long time. I was up seeing him on the way back from Moy. he has not survived in the game for so long without good reason regardless of price. His work is exemplary and there is nothing he does not know about building accurate rifles.
He will be at the Deerstalking fair in March so anyone going can meet him in person over the weekend.
i've seen some of his work, it was very good, and the people i know who have used him have nothing but good to report, and will be returning for more. his delivery times were as promised, for rebarrels/bedding work on factory rifles. as for cost, he was a little more but perhaps that not an issue if your going to shoot many tens of thousands of pounds worth of vension/trophys with it and have the pleasure of it for a good many years. i've spent much more than the difference on a bad night out many, many times over.
Hi - Prior to purchasing a custom built rifle, PRS (Callum Ferguson) were recommended to me by several serious stalkers and keepers whom I know, however I formed my own opinion and looked around and did my own research. Ultimatly I bought a rifle from PRS.... The rifle I have bought (6.5 x 284) is superb, incredibly accurate and I am delighted with it and I have had an excellent follow up service and advice - the guy knows what he is talking about!! As far as I am concerned (based on my experience) I would not go anywhere else and would thoroughly recommend PRS. Hope this helps.
