Glad to hear he is willing to look at it and get it fixed.

Me too John. He is a good smith. As a matter of fact I am liking him better all the time! That is why I refuse to bad mouth him. I may be a little dumb, but know when to keep my mouth shut. We have been talking back and forth and I told Him I tried to slide a dollar bill under the barrel and it would not fit. That is when he said send it back, there is definitely a problem. He said his recommended torque on the action screws was 50 inch lbs. I told him the truth, and told him well then I over torqued them, because I torqued them to 65 inch lbs. He could have laid the blame on me right there but he did not. He said that should not make a difference. Seems like he is a pretty Straight Up guy to me. Also I want every one to know that his rifle has been setting in a safe for a long time and I am not the person who won it. So the fact that he is working on it with me means a lot.Bottom line is I just want it fixed even if I have to pay a little. The rifle is worthless as it is right now. To light to even make a good club. LOL

Glad he's going to look it over. I'm curious what the cause is.

also ask him if its a factory chamber or a match chamber could just be the ammo is not contacting the lands just right. or not offsetting them.

It's been a couple weeks and I was just wondering if you had heard anything or finally got it figured out?

I am saving money for some High end glass. I have talked to the smith several times and other people that have one of his rifles. I am sure that this rifle is breaking the scopes now. I will let you all know as soon as I can afford too. Christmas time is a bad time for me to be buying my self a high end scope. I am broke right now. LOL

One inexpensive way, would be to take it to a competent gunsmith to check out the barrel. They may not find anything even if there is a problem but it can't hurt, & again, "should" be relatively inexpensive. What Frank said. I would also look at the scope mounts, but I would think that the smith has enough sence to put quality low profile mounts on it.Tom

I hear you on the money and Christmas thing!!! Sounds kind of silly when I say it, but I hope it is just a glass problem, as that would be about as simple a fix as possible, even if it's not the cheapest. Best of luck. It was just in the back of my mind the other day and curiosity got the better of me.
