Amen Vall and there some like Connie Grims who seem to remain unknown and one who has made several various actions from scratch and not by using a casting but from a solid block of material. They are true Jewels and all of them a flawless work of art and if memory serves me right and some if not all were made from Stainless Steel and Randy Wright please correct me if I don't have that part right.

Thank you Schuetzen Bob and I believe he made a Borchardt, a HiWall and besides his Gatling Gun I am not sure of what ever else. The Ballard is I believe is the Striker action that I was thinking about and one has to admire what look to be close coupled double set triggers or it's just possibly just Keith's shirt. I used to have pictures of all those he made including the Gatling Gun but I am not sure after the move where they are now hiding at.

Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

That's an amazing Ballard build there! Not usually a fan of light wood, but that stock set is gorgeous!

I watched Connie shooting his Borchardt one day. It is in 6.5-284 and he was shooting at 500 and was miffed that the group was as large as something like an inch and a half. I also got to shoot his 45-70 Gatling one time. Talk about a beautiful weapon! He makes his barrels also.

I remember the borchardt, I believe he called it his dynamite shoot gun because of the match in Colorado he built it for. All are works of art. Connie Grimes talent is only exceeded by his personality, one of the truly nicest people I have had the pleasure to know.
