Custom Rifle Series Part 1: Why Build a Custom Rig?

By Frazer Winskill
Premium


Welcome to the NZ Guns & Hunting Custom Rifle Series. The aim of this series of articles will be to compare the differences in varying levels of rifle customisation, demonstrate what each level gives you in terms of accuracy, and showcase what components are available here in New Zealand, if you are thinking about a project.

 

In this article I will define what each level of customisation is and outline why you may want to build or modify a rifle in the first place. As the series progresses, I will discuss the pros and cons of each type of build and we will summarise at the end to capture what we have learned.
