"Well I have to say I am very happy with my SVR so far. Still in the brake-in process and it comfortably groups under your 1/2"MOA guarantee! It's a real head turner at the range also."

"I just came from my local FFL and I saw my rifle for the first time. I wanted to tell you that it's a work of art. I'm very pleased. It says precision in every way possible. It's my absolute favorite gun and I haven't even shot it yet."

"Just an update on your excellent M40. At the end of my three day TFTT tactical rifle class we shot from long distance and also hostage drills at two and three hundred yards. Your rifle did it's best to help me out and the instructor a former Marine Scout/Sniper instructor looked through his binoculars and mentioned that I had a half minute group at 800yds. On the hostage drill we had that target where the head of the bad guy sticks out partially from behind the hostage. It would come up for 5 seconds during which time you would acquire the target and fire before it went out of sight again. Your rifle helped me put one between the eyes of the bad guy. By the way a police sniper from Wisconsin who came all the way out here to California for the class noticed and commented on your rifle. Which was unusual because he didn't talk a lot."
"Guess I told you but didn't show you. First three at 200 yards from the Grendel Friday. Not on center cause I screwed around with quick disconnect prior to this outing. Guess if one measured center to center, it's a bit better than I initially stated."
"Just got back from WY. 1 antelope at 752 & 1 at 789 yds both cold bore kills. I love that lapua! Thanks again."
"I just have to write you finally and tell you that everything you said was correct. You were ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. THE WAIT WAS WORTH IT!.
LOL I am embarrassed now that I called so many times and even questioned you if this was really gonna happen. It was a LONG wait but OMG. When I fired that rifle it had less kick then my 9mm."
"I already have one of your SVR IN .204 Ruger and I could not be happier with it!"
"Thanks again for the info and your time on the phone yesterday. As Imentioned, I went to the range yesterday and I could not believe theresults. I took my first shot to get on paper and then dialed for a zeroand the second shot was spot on, then I took my third and I thought I missedthe target completely, but the shot had gone through same hole! The gunshoots like nothing else I have ever shot, I had a huge smile on my face thewhole day as shot after shot continued to amaze me. You build anunbelievable rifle and should be very proud of your work."
"Your rifle continues to be awesome. And your cleaning method just as awesome. I have never cleaned a rifle so completely and easily before. Taking your words to heart and wanting to err on the side of caution I completely remove the jag from the rod before bringing the rod back out of the barrel. Trying to keep risk to the crown at zero. When I took that three day class last June in hundred degree weather from that former Marine Scout Sniper instructor I hadn't shot longer than 100 yds. before. I was just hoping not to embarrass myself and your rifle kept me above three of the five shooters and neck and neck with a Police sniper from Wisconsin to 800 yds. With my Nightforce I just dial the dope and aim straight at the body sized target. Later it sort of blew me away when I stopped to figure what my minutes of dope equaled in hold over. Damn I was accounting for a 16' drop! But your rifle was putting shots right on that target at 800."

I just wanted to share with you my experience at the range yesterday. I took the 6.5x47 Lapua that you built for me last year. I took four or five warm up shots and set down and shot four, five round groups. I did not cherry pick the groups, I just shot twenty consecutive rounds. I have attached the pictures so you can see the results. Center to center, my average for the twenty rounds is .36 inches and my best group was .18 inches. I have not been in the military and have had no formal training. Just goes to show that if you put a superior rifle in the hands of a motivated amateur like me, he can look like he knows what he is doing! As you know, this is the second rifle that you have built for me and with results like this I am sure there will be a third. Thanks again for all of your help!
