I've been watching them for about a month now. They look nice, the Ed Brown action is a winner for sure. I wish they had faster twists in the smaller Cals. For the price, I would probably buy a Howa Alpine (Basner stock), a Forbes or a Nosler then rebarrel it with a fast twist and be the same price as a LAW.

There's a 35 page thread on 24hr about them. LAW is going to change some twists, but still not to an 8 on the 243 or 22/250.

If I didn't have a .270 being built, I wouldn't mind one in .270.

The strange thing is, the 280 is a 9 twist, 280 Ack is a 10 twist and the 7mm Rem mag is a 9 twist...

Always made nice stocks!! His rifles look ever bit as nice. I would like to have seen the 243 with a faster twist.

Mark told me once he just wanted to build great rifles, he never really liked the marketing/business part of his job, reckon he's now doing what he likes doing. hope he does well, he's one of the best smiths in the country.

Wait until Diablo Custom Rifles is up and running in about 6 weeks...

Have you thought about a 6.5 WSM? I happen to know of one available, with a nice Richards microfit stock, I know how you like wood over synthetics...
