I started a Win Model 70 build approx 3 years ago.I think it's appropriate to give the builder the first right of refusal to rectify his own work. If he refuses, then seek out the help of others.
Ole TacOps Mike sounds like he has a couple groupies ready to blow him in this thread.
Building it into a USMC sniper.
Initially got it back in just under a year after getting all the parts. Typical time frame.
Beautiful looking rifle and it will stack bullets but it has a chamber issue and a muzzle issue - one a function problem, the second should have been an accuracy issue but it wasnt indicating it on paper.
Still it wasnt the rifle it should have been.
Builder has been very responsive, comms are great and his ability to work has been hurt by Covid restrictions. I paid for a service, builder has been servicing it and I want him to have the chance to fix it......shit happens.
Its coming up on a year for basically a rebarel and the patience is only holding on due the fact I have other rifles to shoot.
