Here is my newest rifle. This project was fully paid for has been in process for neaerly 3 years. The wait was worth it.

Its based on a fully customized and trued Remington 700 LA chambered in 6.5x284 minimum neck throated for the Sierra 142s. The glass is Swaorvski. The stock work, including hand-checkering, was done by Brent Umberger. I was custom fit and hand-picked the wood at his shop in Ohio. The builder is Jered Joplin of Patriot Arms, Inc. in Georgia.
