Looking to put together a 7mm08, from self sourced barrel,action, stock. Or should I say looking for a good riflesmith, with a reasonable turn around time, and unfortunately have been told that Precision Rifles can be 18-24 month wait.

Has anyone had any dealings with Richard Pope, or Steve Bowers, or Walker Rifles?

Not wanting this to turn into an inflammatory discussion, if any one has particularly stong views could they please pm me.

Many thanks

I met Richard Pope on his stand at Bisley back in March. The examples of his workmanship were second to none and I was very impressed by his enthusiasm and attention to detail. I dont know about turn around time , but he was certainly a man to do the biz with. He had just built his father in law a plane , so Im sure he can screw a barrel onto a rifle!! ATB.

Someone I would highly reccomend is Mike Norris of Brock and Norris. He has built rifles for several people that I know and all have been turned around quickly, to specification and have all been excellent shooters.

Mike is available on 07971169829

As a point of reference the last Border Stalkers shoot was won with a 6BR that Mike built on a Tikka m590 action. Stag1933 will attest to the excellent groups produced and if you frequent UK varminting both Shrek (the owner of the 6br) Ratwhiskers (rem 700 7mm o8) Elwood and a number of others all have rifles produced by Mike. If you want to pm those guys they'll tell you the same story.

Regards
