Does anyone have any recommendations of any gun smiths in Ohio who can put together a precision rifle for me? I am located in Columbus but will travel for the right smith.

+ another 100

Here is what the PRS blogger had to say about them:


Short Action Customs sprang onto the scene with a vengeance. Although this was their first debut into the PRS world, they had 4 rifles represented among the top 50 shooters, which says a lot. SAC is headed up by Mark Gordon, and they’ve been cranking out precision rifles full-time since 2010. They obviously are already performing, because they leapfrogged some legendary names.

Short Action Customs –SAC is headed up by Mark Gordon, and they’ve been cranking out precision rifles full-time since 2010. They are an ambitious young company that is obviously already performing at a high level, because they’ve leapfrogged some legendary names on this list. Here is their view: “We are never satisfied with the industry standard. Our business has been founded with the principal that everything can be improved upon. Techniques, tooling, fixtures, and execution can all be refined to the point of perfection. With every service and detail we perform, we apply this philosophy.” As a question-everything kind of guy myself, I can appreciate that approach!

Kelbys in North Lawrence.

They have done 2 rifles for me and if there is a third, it will be with them.

Mark Gordon for sure.

This is a gun he built for me using the Alpha 11 action.

How do you like that Alpha action? I still haven't decided which action to go with and was looking at those last night. How do they compare to Stiller or Surgeon?

It's been great. The rifle shoots well. This one doesn't have an integral base, but they are offered that way now. I'd do another alpha for another build.
