** Actions **
We're happy to build on just about any quality action. There are a lot of good actions out there and these top the list of our favorites.
Stiller actions are very popular for good reason - they are offered at an afordable price and are built to exact tolerances. We keep these popular actions in stock in many configurations, including short-actions setup for using 10-round AW magazines.
Pierce makes an outstanding action and we're proud to build your next custom rifle on their fine action. Actions are available with cone bolt faces as an option. John Pierce starting building actions for benchrest competitors and now builds actions for the tactical environment too. We always have Pierce actions available.
X-Treme Shooting Products
X-Treme Shooting Products makes really wonderful 700-footprint actions. They've been in business a long time and have even made the Titanium actions for a very popular, large manufacturer. (Can ya guess who? Ha, ha.) We've built several rifles on these actions and have no complaints.
** Barrels **
Bartlein makes top tier barrel blanks and we're proud to use them. We always have several Bartlein barrels handy in our inventory.
Brux is very well know in the benchrest community and is gainly popularity in the tactical world as well. We couldn't be happier with the performance we get from these top quality barrels. In fact, we have customers who hold national records with these barrels.
Mike Rock has built a well deserved reputation for making quality cut rifled barrels. We keep Rock Creek barrels in stock and always have some in our inventory.
** Stocks and Chassis Systems **
Accuracy International chassis systems remain among some of the most popular.
Manners fiberglass stocks
Manners stocks are another very popular choice for a quality fiberglass rifle stock. Their reputation of being ultra durable is well deserved. In 2011 Manners started offering molded-in colors to their products.
McMillan stocks are among some of the most popular fiberglass stocks available. They are incredibly strong and durable. Colors are molded into the stock's gelcoat. Custom colors and features are available. We proudly use McMillan products on many of our personal rifles. The HTG and A5 remain our favorites.
This is one of our absolute favorite chassis systems available anywhere. Everything McRee Precision manufactures is made proudly here in the United States by proud Americans. Scott McRee wouldn't have it any other way. McRee makes a rock-solid chassis system for most popular bolt-action rifles. In addition to the chassis system McRee makes AI-pattern magazines that work in all AI-pattern platofrms. We proudly call Scott a friend and personally use his products. Good stuff!
The popular McRee chassis is available with side-folding rear assemblies and assemblies that accept standard AR-15 style stocks. It is the most versatile chassis on the market.
** Triggers **
X-Treme Shooting Products
Tom Myers and the folks at X-Treme Shooting Products make some of the best two-stage and single-stage triggers for Remington 700 style actions, AR-15s and other popular host firearms. Can't say enough good stuff about Tom and his products. He makes some great actions as well (see the "action" section for more info).
Timney makes some of our favorite aftermarket triggers for popular rifles, such as the Remington 700 and AR-15.
** Silencers (Sound Suppressors) **
Advanced Armament has a complete line of suppressor products for everything from .22lr rimfire to the biggest large bore rifle calibers and everything in between.
Since the late 1980s Ops Inc has manufactured some of the best sounding rifle suppressors primarily for the military. Several years ago they started offering these products to customers outside the military community. You can also now own one of these outstanding products. We are proud to stock these products.
SilencerCo products are among the best performing and most innovative in the world. We can't say enough good things about their company and their products. Great stuff and we are proud owners.
We've long been fans of SWR products. They make excellent performing rimfire, pistol and rifle caliber suppressors and accessories.
** Industry Partners **
These are just a few of our "industry partners". By that we mean these are people we very much respect and consider family. We can't say enough good things about these folks. If you happen to contact them please let them know we sent you!
Robert Gradous is one of the best custom rifle manufacturers in the country. He is a true gentleman and we're proud to call Robert a friend.
Dustin, Maria and all the fine folks at EM Gear have been friends of ours for years. Their customer service and product knowledge is why we buy our Maxpedition, Eberlestock and other gear from them.
