Several years ago, I decided I needed a 404. Early in 2011 I chose Reto Buehler to build it. Got measured for the stock at SCI 2012 in Vegas. Took quite a while before GMA had enough orders to do a run of left handed actions. I prefer tang safeties, so that is what I've got. He specially designed and built it just for me. Superb quality work. Excellent trigger. Just took it out tonight and it is not bad at all to shoot. I think that is because it fits me perfectly, something I've never had before because I have long monkey-like arms. He couldn't believe his stock fitter got the measurements right because I'm only 5'10" but the length of pull is over 15 inches. So we re-checked, and it was right. Like I said, monkey arms. If took a while to find the wood. If anyone is contemplating a rifle build, I'd suggest looking for wood right away because it may take a while to find one you like that has grain suitable for a big rifle. He finally located the blank in Switzerland of all places. I'm not a fan of cheek pieces, and they are not necessary if the stock if built to fit. It shoulders like a shotgun and the sights are lined right up like they are supposed to be. It is surprisingly nimble for a dangerous game rifle. It also has a quick detachable z6i, but I'm going to enjoy it with the irons for now. Now I have to decide what to use it on first. I just got back from Namibia less than a month ago, so I'm thinking it is going to be a whitetail out the barn window come rifle season.
