    Brass Work

    I'd like to start building what I would consider one of my dream guns but not sure who exactly is doing brass work at the moment.

    What I'd really like is:
    Bolt Action
    Side tube with Thadapter
    Cartridge Valve
    .682/684ish barrel on the longer side. Something similar to Bacci's KL
    Wedgits
    Porting
    Possibly some sort of iron sights but not a neccessary feature

    Pretty much a G&H Customs Bolt Action but I don't believe they're taking work anytime in the foreseeable future from when I contacted them. Palmer's may be able to do it but I don't know about quality or turnaround time.

    Stock portion isn't needed since it's something I'd like to fit myself. I also have a 2k PGP and a KP2 that I'm more than willing to sacrifice to the cause to aid in its construction.

    If anyone is up to the task or knows who would be, I'd appreciate the help. Thanks.

    I cant speak for his workload and or wanting of the gig, but I'd be sending my brass to WALZ . Go look in the armory Sheridan section and find many of his posts of recent builds. He creates some amazing shooters.

    There are other guys on here that have made some crazy stuff too, but Walz is the only one I know has been actively churning out customer projects within the past month.

      This is the correct answer. You need some llama goodness.

    Sounds like you want a KBA 20/20. I bet if you wrote a really nice letter to BretG, he might be open to it.

      I messaged a couple times before the old forum went down and he was unfortunately busy or couldn't acquire the supplies when he wasn't. I'm guessing he's back to being busy again and I don't want to be obnoxious about it. It is what I'm after though.

        I need some brass work done as well and I have 2 questions.....

        1. How/where can I contact BretG?

        2. Where can I find pictures of the KBAs?

        A combination of the kids screaming in my face and being a techi dinosaur has not helped me win the Google jackpot. Feel free to PM me if the contact info is not supposed to be made public. Any help is appreciated!!

          1. Look up BretG in the members list. I believe he has a profile within these hallowed halls.

          2. I am not sure on this one, I feel your best chance is right here on the forum, but I also couldnt put ya on a picture thread myself.

          What is the price tag for something like this?

            You know what they say, if you have to ask...

            I think price really depends on a bunch of things. Do you have a KP or similar to put toward the build? What add ons do you want, finish etc. Best is to get a quote from someone who is actually going to do the work. It's speculation otherwise.

            I can say for sure that it's cheaper to pick a custom build up when they show up in the BST.

          I'm really not sure what the price tag for something like that would look like, I can only guess North of $800? If I could find a builder that can meet those specifications I'm willing to discuss it.

          The little communication I've had with Brett implied there may be a chance of them making guns again, but until then I've been biding my time, contemplating building a rifle out of a Phantom.

            Hello!

            If you have to ask.... yes that is VERY true with custom brass. The reason I was asking tactfully is that it is not cheap to do the hot work and custom brass anymore. In fact, one place is quoting 3k per project with a 12 month lead time. And this place is the professional work place for custom sheridans.

            Now, I am not speaking for anyone else on here that does the work also. Just be careful with seeking out someone to take on your project. Lee Kinney, Lance Deleisses (Noxx), Scarecrow are all horror stories of seeking out airsmiths to do custom work and the project is never delivered and the deposit money is stolen. Didn't Lance get away with stealing all of those KPs and KPMIs that were supposed to be levers? Fucker.

            Best,

              It's not a project I'm in a huge hurry to work on, and I may not find anyone to do it. I've owned a couple of pieces from the more "name brand" customizer and haven't always been super impressed, and with the extreme turn around time, I'm keeping my eye open for alternatives, but we shall see. Hopefully I'll get a message from Brett out of the blue and he'll be able to make one (if only to stop me from bugging him every 3-4 months).

                Just give it a little more time. I saw Bret and Jake the other day, things will be happening.

                      My body is ready. My bank account maybe less so, but...

                        I let KL10 go a decade ago. Kick myself everyday about it. Patiently waiting for whatever greatness shall come.
