    Anyone used this company before?
    Im considering the #2 or #3 upgrade package for a southpaw 375H&H rifle.

    Basically the #3 package is a restock for a premium of 1600 dollars ( AAA Walnut).

    Just not sure whether to draw the line at the #2 package or if the restock is worth the extra bucks.

    Opinions welcome.

    I'm sure it'll work well for you. I've not done business yet with Wayne, but have talked to him a couple of times. He has a great reputation. What caliber?

    Im a southpaw, so 375 H&H is the only available calibre out of the box.
    Suits me fine though, I wanted the Holland & Holland anyway.
    Wayne is great, he bends over backwards to accomodate your needs.
    I started off considering a CZ with the #2 upgrade and ended up with a full fat left hand 550 DGR rifle!
    Like going to the mall for milk and bread and coming home with 2 trolleys worth of goodies...

    Will do dude, estimated time of delivery 21. August. 3 months for a custom rifle, can you believe it.
    No cheekpiece, slim stock, open express sights - will have it regulated for Barnes TTSX 250g ammo.
    Bears are already lamenting its arrival :)
