I'm interested in knowing who makes precision rifles with 1/4 MOA 100 yard guarantees. Additionally, I'm interested in knowing if these guarantees are for real, or just marketing fluff, or come with an asterick with the attached fine text, something like "clamped in a vise with custom handloads, best 3 of 5" or some other nonsense.
I have heard Tac Ops and Texas Brigade Armory, are these two true, and are there any others?
Also, does anyone have any experience with the Baker Special stock? I like the design, but have never had a chance to hold one and see for myself.
Well, the only stipulation I know of for both Tac-Ops and TBA is that it must be federal match ammo. I believe there are some others what will do a .25 guarantee, but I do not remember them off the top of my head
To answer your question, yes some do. I cannot speak for every company due to the fact that I do not own a rifle from every one of them.
You can't go wrong with Georgia Precision, HD Rifles, Iron Brigade, Tac Ops, Patriot Rifles(theres two with this name, the better one) and SC Rifles.
I would recommed SC Rifles as Mel can tell you, they are a great deal on very well built rifles. Without a doubt one of the best buys. I plan to get one myself.
Even though I had some bolt work done by TBA, there have been issues in the past with them and some SWAT buddies of mine and so I avoid them now. Mike Lau does produce good work however as my personal preferance I have not had any work done by his shop since.
I would argue that to give a 1/4 moa guarantee without a couple of conditions would be impossible. Without stating, load, range etc. you would simply be setting up your product for failure regardless of build quality. I just got finished spec.ing out my first custom and what I found was that gurantee or not the good smiths simply stand behind their product. With any of the above stated smiths I can't imagine you would have a problem.
means the gun is capable of .25 MOA
if it shoots .2499999999 MOA from a vice and doesnt shoot .26 MOA when the best shooter shoots it, the rifle met it's guarentee
this could be indoors too but dont forget that outdoors accuracy is the same, your ability to judge wind is the limiting factor
same for range- if you can predict where the environment takes it, the rifle should shoot just as accurately all the way out there
of course ammo- Tac Ops guarentees it with Federal Gold Medal 168 gr BTHP only
so guess what- if it shoots .25 MOA w/ FGMM 168 gr and doesnt group a dinner bowl with some other load, it met it's guarentee
