What a fine custom rifle we have here, with all the niceties and outstanding workmanship in a package that does what a rifle is supposed to do…shoot incredibly consistent sub-moa groups with factory ammunition.  Built on a British Small Arms (BSA) 7 x 57 Mauser style action with controlled feed and custom barreled to .244 Remington (same as 6mm Remington as the barrel has 1:9 twist to stabilize the heavier bullets), the action is smooth as butter with a positive, quiet safety and an incredible adjustable trigger with ZERO creep or travel that breaks like a glass rod at 2.75 lbs. pull every time.  The rifle shoots, there is no doubt, but does so with superb good looks and custom rifle touches that are both classic and racy.  The curly, burled, deeply figured Bastogne walnut stock is shaped to perfection, with a Monte Carlo comb, cheek piece with shadow line, ebony forend tip and sculpted grip cap, and the most pleasing golden-brown color.  The inletting is literally done to perfection throughout.  Even when you take the barreled action out of the stock there is perfection, with no glass filler anywhere.  The checkering is borderless, with no straight lines anywhere, resembling a flame style with internal ribbons and skip-line checkering done to perfection.  We all know how important the stock inletting is when making an accurate rifle, and it is obvious the maker of this rifle cared a LOT.  The Neidner checkered steel buttplate with widow’s peak sets the stock off visibly and functionally by keeping the rifle melded to your shoulder.  The barrel is stamped .244 Remington but the maker was well ahead of his time as the .244 Rem had 1:12 twist rate which did not stabilize the heavier bullets well.  Remington later came out with the 6mm Remington with the same bullet diameter having discovered the 1:9 twist rate stabilized a greater range of bullet weights.  THIS 22” BARREL HAS 1:9 TWIST RATE and a perfect bore.  IMPORTANTLY, THE LONGER 7 X 57 ACTION ALLOWS FOR HANDLOADING HOTTER LOADS AND IS THE ULTIMATE PLATFORM TO MAXIMIZE THE 6MM REMINGTON ROUND.  Weighing 7lbs. 7oz. including the new Leupold Vari-X III 3-9 power scope, it is a true lightweight custom rifle.  I have owned and shot this rifle for 3 years.  We don’t know who the craftsman was, but he was at the top of his game.  Get this rifle in hand…feel the balance.  Shoulder it to experience the cheek weld, perfectly lined up with the scope.  Look at fine touches, like the checkered and engraved bolt handle, the graceful shape of the forend tip and grip cap, the incredible wood.  Beauty and function in one package at an affordable price.  Don’t let this one get past you and thank you for looking.
