    Steve is great, he helped me with my build. He's in big demand by corporates, but still makes time for the kiwi hunter.

    I had one and also had issues with the bedding. Very easy to crush the stock through overtightening the stock screw.
    It didn't seems they had a harder epoxy or epoxy pillar set up like McMillan does.

    Gidday all

    firstly thank you to those of you that have purchased from us and your positive feedback

    just thought we would remind everybody that our products have a life time guarantee and and all work provide by us we stand buy.
    we do make mistakes. We Don't want them defining our company, if anybody is unhappy or has issue we will have it sorted by a gunsmith at our cost immediately. if you manage to brake or damage the stocks we will replace at no charge.

    these stocks do have an extremely strong none compressible beading blocks in them to avoid crushing.

    we have a great sale on at the moment of our new painted line of stocks so take advantaged People

    cheers
