That's a beautiful rifle; I'm still waiting on mine. Maybe this fall.

Very nice rifle. It will serve you well. I've had the same experience with TVM. I have two of there MLs and they both came out just as I had ordered only better than expected.

Nice rifle!.....
Been enjoying the heck out of mine as well!

I went .54 / 44" Rice on mine with some carving and inlays.

Looks great...I'm glad to see they put the touch hole in the right place...She should be fast even with a full pan...

What does a gun like that cost nowadays???

Wow, I am so glad that I up-graded to P+ from
a plain stock on my E. Va at TVM. It is a
fine looking long gun. One week to 10 more
days I should have mine.

Mine took a little over 4 weeks, but they had time off for the 4th and Dixons Gun fair. Pretty simple build, no carvings.

That is the exact model I ordered from them on January 26. Only mine is a lefty with no patch box. I am hoping for a call any day now. The money is in the account waiting. And I am sure wanting to do some shooting with mine. Maybe a little late season ground hog hunting!!

You have made me very jealous. Good luck with your rifle.

Please keep us updated on your initail shooting. And how you do your work on your sights.

After seeing your patchbox I am thinking I may have made a mistake by not getting a patch box on mine. I might change my mind if it is not too late??

I do not know if they start working on rifles before they receive your money?? Tom.

She is fast! Kapow! So much better than my GPR. This rifle was $1485 including shipping. Worth every penny!

I placed my order on November 17, 2010. It was worth the wait though!

You will get an email when they start your build AND you can make changes up until that time. Toni and Richard are very understanding and helpful. They seem to want to build YOUR rifle, not just something "off the rack". They were very nice to work with on this project. If I ever order another rifle it will be through them.

I started out slow at the range. 50 grains Ffg at 50 yards. I was able to get a five-shot palm sized grouping the first time out. It was about 5 inches low and a little to the left of my aim point. I will be trying other loads until I get the tighest grouping and them will adjust the sights to point-of-aim. I am hoping to make meat this fall!
