From what I understand an 18 month wait is not unusual.

After much research, when I was debating between a complete custom or factory sort of semi custom rifle. I found out about this company. I've never read one bad post, all rifles will shoot less then a inch.

Kampfeld is cheaper then some of the other custom builders, and does build a pretty rifle, but in my opinion a majority on the list I posted are better rifles then Karl's.

flagI do not have an address or phone #, all I have is the name & city he resides in, his name is Dee Whitehead, he lives/builds custom precision rifles in Waco, Texas. he builds a lot of rifles for the LEO snipers & some federalies too.I've fired one of his sniper.308's, it is unlike anything I've ever squeezed a trigger on in my life!!! The trigger pull was set on 1/2 # & the bolt was so smooth that I could catch the spent brass in my right hand before they hit the dirt!!!! It is UNBELEIVABLY SMOOTH & The finest ever!!!!

There is a place in Baytown called Aquilla I think and he makes custom rifles. I have been by his shop and he is first class! Never fired one of his, but have handled a few of his rifles and they are very nice!

There is also a guy close to me that builds custom bench guns and long range rifles. His name is Ken Porter and I know for a fact he is good. He is in the phone book in Lake Jackson.

Dale Kimbrough of Clute used to build as good of a custom as anyone, but age and diabetes have taken there toll on him. He still has some of his guns for sale, but he isnt building any new ones.
