Check out Wes Grant at MSTN as well. He not only built high precision guns, he was in a place to learn about hard use guns and managed to combine both. But he ain't cheap...

Not knocking any High Power smith but one with experience with building suppressed guns is invaluable.

Interesting link, thanks. Guy sure seems to know what he is doing there. Pricing is not all that bad for what you are getting.

But he's making about $5-600 or so for screwing an upper together based on the rough price of the parts........I just did one very close with the same or comparable components, so that seems a bit high for 45 minutes worth of work.

its always going to be high when you try to use some of the best stuff, and have a platform to sell.

Its why I pick and choose the best stuff and have barrels done as needed generally, and assemble myself.

Thats the only way I get what I want, without having someone else sell me their ideas at a higher rate.

All in all though, for going price of customs its not anywhere out of range if you can't or won't put the parts together yourself.

Yes he's making money but he's also put in some time with John Noveske back when he was alive and worked out some issues with gas port sizes, suppressors, intermediate gas system and a 3 groove barrel that Noveske doesn't produce for anyone but him. And he probably does a thing or two that most of us don't. Like fitting the bolt at 1.4646" +0.001"/- 0.000".

Just another option.

And a good option too..........there's no doubt from his website that he is top shelf.

As for his dimensioning on the bolt HS, for anything but a precision type gun, being only .001' over min, isn't where I'd want a tactical or highly used, all conditions rifle that's going to get dirty, to be. I think I'd rather another .001".

If the gun is kept reasonably clean & only shoots new ammo or new brass which is normally about .003-.004" below min, or carefully sized reloads, it will be fine though.

yep,the call on that headsizing TOTALLY depends on what ammo you are shooting....

Really always has and always will in a way.
