Custom purpose built F-Class rifles, ready to win matches.

Barnard Actions, McMillan stocks and Krieger barrels courtesy of our good friend Peter at Hirsch Precision.




After dialing in the bore to less than .0001 concentrically at 2 points, the barrel tenon is single-point machined to fit Barnard P. Unsurpassed surface finish, like fine jewellery.


Machining the crown.

Finished crown, perfectly square to the bore.


McMillian Prone stock channel is milled to fit Barnard S action.


Trial fitting of Barnard S, existing McMillan's factory pre-inletted stock ejection port designed for Borden Rimrock action requires lengthening and fitting to match Barnard S action.

Ejection port cut-out complete.



As these two McMillan stock's were preinletted for Borden Rimrock action, the Barnard S action screws does not line up with McMillan's machined-in aluminum pillars designed for the Rimrock action. They are off by 1/4".


Existing pillar drilled out, new custom made pillar with escutcheon installed, aligned perfectly square with the action.


All reliefs and clearances milled on the McMillan F-Class and Prone stocks, stock is then roughed and ready for bedding.


Actions are then prepped, putty seals-up areas of unwanted bedding, release agent applied uniformly for a perfect bedding job. Ready for bedding.




Epoxy is applied.



Initial separation, perfect stress-free bedding. Off to the mill for relief cuts and fitting.



Milling reliefs, final hand fitting and all clearances checked.
