Anyone have a 700 done by TBA? I would love to fire one of these babies. 1/4moa garanty with reasonable pricing.

not in the near future. i'm might actually be selling off a pistol and a rifle (sig229 equinox, 700p) .

just wanted to shoot one of the old school rifles, and compare it to my new stick. kind of like old school vs new school comparison.

I'll bring my Chandler M40A1 with me this weekend so you can see and shoot "old school" if you want.

i wonder if you buy one of those m40a1, and you don't shoot it. can you resell it for a couple of extra hundred bucks on top of msrp?

There's been plenty of denial of that guarantee - in fact IIRC if you call they'll condition the hell out of that "guarantee"

got it, that's why most people garanty the 3/8 to 1/2moa.

You can shoot it later - just let me know so I can bring her along.

Also depending on the 'smith they hold their value or in some cases appreciate depending on the rifle. CHandlers, GAPs and a couple of others usually appreciate in value or at least hold the same.

Couldn't imagine too much of a profit after wait times, transfer fees, opportunity costs, etc.

doubt it but if you ever go to sell one you won't loose much either

About equal if I do my part - I've shot sub .3 MOA 5 shot groups with each. Each rifle's barrel has a different sweet spot (Savannah is a little faster that Kelly) but if you stay in it they're are both pretty equal in performance.

two paths that lead to the same road.

Basically - the only problem with them is that their stock configurations are so different you cannot shoot them equally well without an adjustment period between the two.
