    I've got two that were build by Stan Jackson (349-3854). They're both really good shooters, and his turn around time is usually pretty good.

    Sorry... 562-0881 is Andy Hawks number, he is over off of Old Seward and ? Dowling maybe? Cant remember the cross street, but he will obviously give you directions.

    He has only re-barreled two rifles for me, but has done several general reapairs, muzzle breaks, recoil pads, trigger jobs and drilled and taped a bunch of mounts and sights.

    I hear lots of good stuff about Stan Jackson, and I am sure they are all true, but I have never met the man. A guy I worked with hooked me up with Andy when I first moved up to Anchorage and he has done such a good job for me and the wife over all these years that I have never needed to look for anyone else...

    Default Thanks...

    I appreciate the replies. I just dropped the rifle off over at Stan Jacksons place AND the reamers have been ordered. Im gonna try out the new 338 RCM. Ive not been a huge fan of the short actions in the past but I came accross one in a horse trade. I'll put a 20" barrel on and see how she rides. With case capacity it should be a 338-06 short action so to speak. Anyway will be some fun. Thanks again.
