    Default L/H Rifle completed, R/H Rifle planned

    Allen,
    My son-in-law is left handed and this will be his very first left handed rifle. I still have plans to have built the R/H 325 WSM with the MRC 1999 SS action that I bought from you. That will be my next rifle project. Will post pics when it is completed, may take 6 months or so to complete.

    Thankyou, but credit for the table layout should really go to the previous owner of the 308 Win, rifle makes a nice centerpiece doesn't it. Something only a hunter/rifle shooter would enjoy.

    Default Dandy lookin' Rifles!

    My Brother lost his right eye 20, maybe 25 years ago. Had to re-learn to do everything, including shooting, left-handed. He went down the road of semi autos, pumps, and levers, finally got round to going over the top to use a right handed bolt gun, and got quite proficient at it. Two years ago, I found him a Southpaw controlled feed M70 Classic/XTR type .300 Winchester. He really thought that a left handed rifle was going to be the cat's meow...till he tried to use it! Two years, and he still fumbles around with the piece, and I think he's about ready to hang it on the wall and go back to his right handed 700 Remington!!!
    I've got a Montana Rifle action hanging on the wall, I've got to get going on! As close as I am, I should just climb in the truck and drive up and have them put a barrel on for me. How do their barrels perform? Quality of their barrel work? Have you had them blue anything?

    Default MRC Rifle Barrels

    I cannot speak from personal experience about MRC rifle barrels, but here is what the previous owner of the 308 Winchester had to say.

    Quote: The bedding and floating is first class, one of the nicest jobs I have seen in a long time. I am the second owner. The first owner had this gun built, shot it 20 times with 1" groups @ 100 but felt the gun was too heavy. I bought this gun, did a bit of work on the floating, mounted bases and 30 mm rings and topped it off with a Leupold Euro 3X9 fine duplex and took it to the range. It shot groups of just at 1/2" @ 100 yrds. I put 20 rounds through it, so it now has a total of 40 rounds through it. End Quote
