Got the phone call yesterday from Alamo that my rifle was ready. Like a kid on Christmas day. I couldn't get to the shop fast enough!!

Since I got my suppressor, I have been wanting a smaller rifle that isn't such a joust. I originally went in and was going to have a 7-08 built, but since I am not a reloader, they talked me into getting a 6.5 Creedmoor (take it easy on me) due to the amounts of factory loads. Laughing at that now.

Now if only I can find some ammo for it crying Maybe Chad can work something up for me.

Haven't shot it yet, but I can't speak higher for the guys at Alamo. Great guys that answered all of my (sometimes stupid) questions, and delivered a final product as described and slightly ahead of schedule.

Nice, what are the specs? I tried to go with Alamo Precision on my latest build. I sent emails to both GA Precision and Alamo Precision and only GA responded so my $ went to them.

You have zero ammo?


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Well.. Can't vouch for their handiness with emails but they answered-returned every phone call..

It's their cheaper version (Maverick), all of their stuff is "proprietary". 18" heavy sporter barrell, 1-8 twist with the spiral fluting. TriggerTech broke at 2.7 lbs.
