What do we do differently that sets us apart from our competitors?

  1. Tried and true

    We shoot every rifle we build. That sounds pretty basic, but you would be amazed at how many rifle shops never shoot their rifles for groups to verify Proper feeding, ejection, and accuracy with factory ammunition. You will receive the targets showing how your rifle performs. You don’t have to buy several different boxes of ammunition to test. You don’t have to spend hours of range time and money trying out different loads or trying to figure out why the rifle does not shoot well, feed well, or operate correctly. You will already know the ammo the rifle shoots accurately and we will professionally mount your scope and sight the rifle in. We always shoot off a regular front and rear bag rest. No vices or sleds will be used.

  2. Quality over Quantity

    Every one of our full custom rifles is individually aluminum pillar and glass bedded. This produces action bedding that is an exact, one-to-one match to your specific stock and action. In addition to cutting our aluminum bedding pillars to the specific length needed for your rifle, we also glass bed the receiver and the bottom metal to achieve a stock to metal fit that is absolutely perfect. We take the additional step to match the color of the bedding compound to the dominant stock color so the bedding will not stand out from your stock color or cerakote color.

  3. Accuracy guaranteed

    Our Accuracy guarantee is very clear and very simple. Our full custom rifles are guaranteed to shoot 3-shot, 1/2″ or better groups, at 100 yards with recommended factory ammunition in most calibers. Because we take the time to properly bed every action and shoot every rifle, you can be confident the guarantee is real and true. You will get the targets that show the actual groups from your rifle, shot off a bench on a simple front and rear bag rest. You do not have to hand load. You do not have to buy custom ammo from us. Even if you are going to reload, a rifle that shoots 1/2″ groups with factory ammunition will make your reloading work much easier.

  4. the perfect build made for you

    We recognize that not everyone is ready to spend what our full custom rifles cost. We strive to cater to as many customers as possible. Our Harvester rifles, Pathfinder series, and Deluxe Accurizing service provide a wide range of price options. These products also include complete testing, shooting, verification of accuracy with factory ammo, scope mounting and sight in, and final targets from your rifle.
