I'm thinking about using s&s for a 300wm build and was wondering if anyone has ever heard of or used them? I've called them a few times with questions and they are extremely kind and very helpful. If anyone has any photos of work done by them I'd love to see. Thanks guys

Stick shut it down and busted up the gang. Michael is now working with Whitewing in Denton and Jonathan is doing his own thing in Cleburne. Chris went back to work in the water business....I have no idea what happened to JD but he didn't work on guns.

I would let any of them work on my stuff though. PM me if you want either Michael or Jonathan's number.

Gonna have to x2 on Horizon. Derrick has done some great work for me. He is supposed to be at DSC and will probably have rifles with him so you can see the quality, although the real quality is how they shoot.

Well, that kinda sucks about s&s. What about Alamo precision? I havent heard a whole bunch about them.

I went by Alamo precision on the 23rd to talk to them about doing some work for me. Nobody there, no hours listed on their website, no sign on the door, and nobody answered the phone. So I called Derrick at horizon, they answered the phone, had no problem connecting me directly to derrick, and I'll be shipping him my gun after deer season. That's the way I like a business to be ran.

I have no problem with Alamo shutting down for the holiday, but I would think they would communicate to customers when they would be there and when they wouldn't.

Stick is still Stick... Just decided to throw in the towel, he's still shooting and tinkering with stuff at both Jonathan's and Michael's places.

Either of those guys are capable and while not in the DFW area Jon Trammel in Breckenridge is good and Derrick appears to put out some good stuff. Another option would be Chad and JG's guy. We have lots of great gunsmiths.

Get with Derrick he does Top Quality work, and builds rifles that shoot. Both of my rifles he built me, shoot 1/4 or better with factory ammo.
