Just the thought of shooting at something over 1000 yards…heck, over 500 yards, and actually having a chance of hitting it, is something I never took the time to consider. Except when I am watching my sniper hero’s on the military channel on my, bigger then life, 52″ LED HDTV. But, now days you are hearing and reading more and more about such opportunities becoming, not only a possibility, but a very popular reality.
With the increase of custom rifle manufacturers throughout the US, you will need to take the time to find a manufacturer that meets your needs. Because the word ‘custom’ is being abused more and more each day. So, before you type in your credit card number on the internet for your dream rifle, you will want to do some homework and find that perfect manufacturer that defines the word ‘custom’ in a way that deserves your stamp of approval.
My personal favorite manufacturer is Aztek Arms, based in Utah. These guys deliver ‘custom’ on every level, and guess what? They know what they are doing! So, when you are ready to invest in a custom rifle, that can plant a perfectly placed kiss on an attractive varmint at 1000 yards. Be sure to do your homework. This is an investment and should be treated as such.
Good luck out there my fellow snipers!
