    i am sure this is a very accurate gun , James has put a few guns together for me and as always done 100 % correct. He and I have become good freinds and was sad to see him go in a different direction from gunsmithing. Anyone who buys this will get a rifle put together as good as it gets

    Just bought Jim's electronic game call this last friday. I had to see the gun for myself. It is what he says. If I had some xtra money laying around it would be in my safe. Showed me his 5rd. group @ 100yds. I couldn't stick my pinkey finger through the hole.

    Jim, I called in a dog yesterday morning to about 400yds. before he decided to turn and head the other direction. The sun had just come up and I was a little more exposed than I wanted to be.

    Pictures don't do the gun justice. Hopefully he can post some. If I was smart I would have took my camera with and done the pics for him. Jim is a wise older fella whom I enjoyed talking to. If your serious about this gun give him a call and go take a look at it. You wont regret it. Eric
