Really happy with how these 2 guns finished out so I had to post them here.

Barrel style looks new I like it. When do you think you will be producing your stocks?

To be honest not that impressed with the fluting. It looks coolish and hell may serve as a great wood saw but meh.



The Thread protectors aren't profiled to the barrel.

Dimples? Looks good, weight reduction or heat? That top one is definet showcase! Bottom one looks field ready, really like them both up

Heat tends to concentrate and dissipate from sharp edges and corners. The dimpled barrel setup is attractive, and I would guess that it cools quickly with all of those points.

Make a good back-scratcher too, in a pinch.

Dang, I love the barrels. Does it cut down a lot of weight and cooling time?

What camo pattern is that bottom stock? The bottom rifle is PERFECT in my opinion!

Your rifles have a high "Wow!" factor. Nice stuff.

Very unique, I like the fluting. That top rifle looks sharp. It does look like the fluting could be more trouble to keep clean/wipe down.

I shoot my custom barreled rifles too much to waste money on barrel fluting. Usually the cost of the fluting itself is darn near enough to pay for a new barrel, and I'd rather have another barrel than something that looks cool and doesn't offer much of a benefit.
