^^This.

It was 5 years ago, but I think it was a two week turn around. Spiral fluting was only $20 more than straight, and spiral removes more weight. Plus it looks sexy!

I called one time, and was told they are only fluting rifles they build.

I’m not sure what kind of rifle you’re working on but APR told me a while back that they couldn’t flute a Tikka bolt for me. I ended up sending it to LRI. They did a great job for a very reasonable price ($45) and I think it was about a 2 week turnaround.
