Today i went to the Luxus facility and met Clay and Tony. They showed me the operation and all the beautiful wood just waiting to be turned.
I had called Clay a couple of weeks ago to order a rifle, but since I live just a couple of hours away. Clay suggested that I stop by.
They had several stocks turned and I chose the pick of the litter!(haha)
Clay and Tony were great to work with and very patient with me as i chose the options I wanted.I had originally wanted the bright blue finish but after Clay showed me some Case colored recievers they had done, it was a pretty easy choice. Doug Turnbull does there case coloring and it is magnificent!.
They at some point are planning to offer 3 different barrel weights. The rifles i got to handle today were all the light weight configurations. They pointed and handeled very nice, however i prefer a slightly heavier and a bit more muzzle weight. I chose what they are calling their #2 contour. It will be comparable to a Ruger 1-B that i really like.
The actions are very smooth to open and close with no play whatsoever.
The trigger was set at about 2 pounds and broke like the proverbial glass rod. The production guns are set at about 3 pounds for liability reasons.
The wait time will be approximatley 4 months, because i am having it engraved also. Without the engraving it would have been 3 months.They also gave the option to pic my choice for the serial number.
This is a truley great rifle and great people to work with. Waiting on it is going to be hard. I might sneek back over there in the meantime and check on its progress! Not really, I will let them do their work and leave them alone so they can make their customers happy!
If anyone is not familar with the Luxus Rifles, you can check them out at Luxus Arms LLC
I have a few pics of the stock i picked out but i dont know how to post them. Maybe i can get my friend Jason Broom to post them for me.
) Even as nice as the stock looks, the pics really dont do them justice! The wood that you can choose from is marvelous!
