    Default SouthWest Custom Firearms--any reviews?

    Anyone purchase or have any experience with any of their custom bolt action rifles?

    Custom? That is sort of a stretch in my opinion. Just a Remington rebedded in a syn stock and flutes added to the barrel and bolt with the Sako extractor. There is nothing there you can't get any good smith to do but might have to search a little bit to get the fluting done. It is not even that light at 7 pounds empty.
    You could easily buy a SPS and build up a similar rifle for a lot less money.

    Now days you can change out a few parts that can be purchased on-line from many places and call your somewhat changed product custom.Kinda like changing the brand of wiper blades on you truck and selling it as a custom
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you
