    Custom rifle and he says you need to have availability of factory ammo? If you are paying that sort of gold you would be making your own rollies to get the best performance.

    This has been something that has always interested me, if you make custom rifles do you use really good factory ammo as a bench mark for how good the rifle starts life and where reloads will take you from there. Not everyone will reload, even those with custom rifles, so being able to shoot factory ammo well must be a requirement?

    Very cool setup. We are lucky to have a shop pushing forward in NZ. We will be able to cut our reliance on US built parts in coming years.

    +1 and hopefully encourage others to invest and follow suit to keep competition and realistic prices.
    Nice looking setup they have.

    They have done pretty well so far, and I hope they will find customers abroad to export to. Because I do not want to sound too pessimistic ,but the NZ market might be saturating in a not so distant future . As for the rifle barrel making part of the business, have they employed somebody with the "know how "? It is another science of its own!

    Definately a well set up workshop, must be making a huge number of suppressors with a machine Centre of that size.
