Anybody had any dealings with riflecraft or any body got any comments on them, thinking about getting one.

I know a few people that have rifles from them. All have been excellent, extremely accurate and very good value for money.
I did read of one chap would had an unsatisfactorily finished fluted barrel that had been supplies by Border Barrels, which took a bit of time to resolve, but thats about all.
Like many of our riflesmiths they do sometimes have long delivery dates, which them have on occasions missed, much to their customers annoyance.
If I was in the market for another semi-custom rifle they would be one of the people I would be looking at. You can sometime pick up a bargain if you are not to set on a particular calibre of rifle.

Hope that helps :)

Have you seen Callums price list recently. :eek:

What sort of thing do Border Barrels do? More importantly what do they charge?

If you want a Rem'y based semi-custom (not that I would choose a Rem'y action for a custom myself :evil: ) you could contact South Yorkshire Shooting Supplies, and talk to Dave, they are the official importers for Remington barreled actions and will do you a semi custom for the right money. As another alternative Col48 on UK Varminting has a full custom for sale in 243AI for not a lot of money for a custom.

All the best.

Border Barrels are advertising in sporting rifle they do a fully pimped up Remington 700 for £2250

I notice the price of their fitted barrels has come down a bit, I will be giving them a call sooner than later for a new barrel.

I have read good things about the Archer barrels.

21/4K sounds a bit rich for a reworked stock Remmy 700 or is it more than just that.?

Hi SWB

It is built on a custom/after market action not a factory action, does that make it a semi-custom or a custom:???:

Tricky one that. I would have to say custom with some reservations.
From what I can see he has done very little to any of the various major elements other than set the required headspace.
Custom and semi-custom are vague terms anyway people have to apply their own criteria as to what is either.

Hi SWB

I know it is not easy sometimes to split the difference, to my mind if it is built on a specialist action I think of it as a custom even if it is a bolt it together job. Although to be fair if you are buying an after market action you would not expect to need to true it up ect.

If it is built on a factory action then I think of it as a semi-custom.

I suppose that in reality you yourself can only order a true custom rifle, and custom built for somebody else is unlikely to have been made exactly the way you would have specked for yourself. Therefore it would not be a custom.

Just a rough estimate of costs can’t be arse to do the home work. :D

Action £500
Barrel chambered £500
Stock £500
Magazine £50
Trigger £200
Bed action £100

Total:- £1850

Although no doubt the guy got his components a bit cheaper trade. For £2000 might be worth it if you have no patience and want it now. :rolleyes:

Riflecraft

I did a course with Riflecraft a couple of years ago, they were a little disorganised but knew their stuff. I shot several of their rifles. The TSR 1 was a nice bit of kit, but the TMR1 and TMR2 are in a league of their own. Very easy to shoot and very accurate.

try rhino rifles or danny at stafford synthetic stocks had my howa done with tr2 stock titanium bedding pacnor fluted barrel jet z compact moderator, blueprinted action and paint job for less than £2000
just waiting for another custom a 7mm08 built on a gbr action
to be honest with a little work on bedding, trigger and decent hand loading most factory rifles will outshoot the shooter for a fraction of the cost

Nice looking rifle, what weight does that come in at? (is that built more for target?) I'm currently waiting on my new purchase coming from border barrels, just have to show patience i suppose. (should be ready next couple of weeks)
