    Default Gunsmiths near Anch

    I know about Stan, but was wondering if anyone has had any experience with Extreme Rifleworks in Palmer or any other smith's, with the exception of WW Guns. I have a couple of things I would like to get done and am looking for the opinions of others that have had experience with some of the gunsmiths around here.

    Thanks.

    Default Extreme Rifle works

    I had extreme rifle works redo my Winchester M70 375 H&H. They did a complete lightweight conversion, chopped the barrel at 20" and dropped it in a lightweight kevlar stock. I have been very pleased with the job they did. The rifle weighs right at 6lbs 4oz bare and just over 7.25lbs loaded with scope. I am very impressed with thier work. I wouldn't think twice about having them do some more work for me.

    Hey Bear that rifle looks sweet! But at 7 pounds four ounces it has to kick like a mule on coke. How do you stand it?

    Nitroman-

    Its actually not too bad when shooting from most feild positions where you can roll with it. From a bench it really lets you have it though. Actually takes a lot of concentration to do fine sight in and load development. The rifle is quite accurate but it takes several minutes and a lot of mental control to not flinch off the bench. Its sweet for hunting though.


    When I first got it I shot it a bunch the first day and actually had some brusing on the back side of my shoulder the next day. Funny thing is I have yet to have anyone want to shoot it after watching me shoot it a few times.
