There was a thread several years ago about custom rifles....A lot of the pics have been hijacked by photobucket though....Let's start over since some have probably changed anyway....Plus hopefully pictures were taken this weekend at the match.....Any info such as:
stock
action
trigger
barrel
gunsmith
optics etc....

Only custom I have right now. And it isn’t particularly custom.

Yup. While assembling a good stainless barreled action and mating it to a synthetic stock can yield outstanding accuracy, a nicely done blued & walnut rifle outclasses it as a "custom."

Beautiful! Something like that is exactly what I think of when someone says “custom rifle”.

Not a full custom only semi custom but I had it made exactly the way I wanted so it's custom to me and I love it.

Yea I’d love one I just wouldn’t have much use for one other than to look beautiful. Couldn’t stand to be rough on one like that

I had it made to use. It has been on multiple Africa and Argentina trips and has been used hard. The bluing is worn on the barrel and magazine floor plate. The stock has multiple dings and scratches. The wrist and cheek piece are stained darker with sweat. To me it is prettier now than when it was new. Over 200 zebras, wildebeest, impala and gemsbok in addition to over 100 whitetail deer have been taken with this rifle.
