I have a question: in your post it says it was eck tuned ,is this implying it was also built by eck or was it built by another gunsmith, on the rimfire accuracy site i believe someone said it was a myers benchmark sporter tuned by eck .If so, is this still classified as an eck sporter?

Chuck you have to get all the details from Tim but he is implying Gordon Eck

Eck rechambered the barrel and cut the knob back to where it would shoot (this is how you tune a sporter). But according to Gordon, yesterday it was an Eck gun, today it was a Meyers. ;-)

This gun was initially built by Bill, it was completely redone by Gordon, including a rechamber and alterations of the lug including length, backbore,recrown. It's an Eck sporter, in fact it was his personal sporter until he sold it to me last year. I hope this answers any questions.

I've never met you before, but I know how hard it is to shoot the little gun......it is my favorite rifle to shoot. Congratulations on a great win!! Your scores will be real hard to beat in the future. I don't know if it is a world record or not but it is the best scores I can remember. Sounds like that old Eck boy is a pretty good gunsmith too!!

Eck sporters won the Sporter Nationals, the 3 gun yards, and 3 gun meters sporter targets. Domination!! Gordon is the sporter king. Any doubts?

Tim, you are 1st class on the bench and off the bench. Thanks for all the helpful advise you gave me. It sure makes a 11 hour drive worth while when you can be shooting and learning from the top guy's in the country. I'm already looking forward to next year.

Mel, next year I will have my wife make a triple batch of cookies, 1 batch for you, 1 for Alan Hall and the 3rd for the rest of us. I really enjoyed the Nationals and meeting so many great people. Living in the Midwest I read about all of you guy's out there, but now I can put a face with the names. I was really impressed with some of the scores shot out there. I think Tim will have the sporter record for a long time. There was a lot of outstanding scores in less than ideal conditions. I'm going to have to practice up more before coming out there next year.
