    No, but I'll be curious to hear your feedback. I just realized they made the AVR in a left handed version and I'm considering getting one.

    They are fine rifles, no one should have problems. They just are small company

    My self and a friend of mine both had the Montana Rifle Company build us 458 Lott's. My friend has since passed away and did not get to use his, but he, and I, were both completely satisfied with the construction of the rifle. It was fired to sight in the scope, and it worked perfectly. Both of us were very impress.

    Myself, I have only fired my rifle to sight in the scope, and I was completely satisifed. I woulf recommend this company to anyone who would like to hace a custom rifle built. I had a total of three rifles made by the Montana Rifle Company and recommend them very highly.

    Here it is January and just got my lott .overall I'm happy with the outcome for the price point. It's going too get a few changes the sights are terrible but finish is good bolts a little stiff but that can be fixed. Balance is nice at 8 pound 2.5 ounces hope too put it thru its paces this weekend

    Johnny whats wrong with the sights, and not bad weight for a carry rifle.....though you might notice a touch of rear movement when you fire it ;) and of course where are some photos of your new toy? :beer:

    Christmas came a little late this year. Sorry it took so long. Congratulations. Sounds like you have a nice lite rifle for long walks. Do you have a hunt planed to use it on yet?
    All the best.

    Can't wait to hear how it shoots - the "light" weight is my biggest concern with this rifle, although I know I can have lead added to it.

    WORK??? You let WORK interfere with the review of your new rifle???? ;)

    That sounds like a pretty dang good offhand grouping to me! I really think I'm going to end up with one as soon as I get some extra money. Do I need one? Not really... But I sure want one!

    Thanks for the response!
