    Position Rifle Smith

    A friend is looking for a smith who specializes in re-barreling Anschutz Position rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Pete

    Try Mark Penrod at Penrod Precision Rifles. I know he did work on a position rifle for a recent NCAA record holder. Don't know if it was an Annie, but do know he has the tooling and has done many Annie's in the past. Use your search bar for 'Penrod Precision' and you will find contact phone number. Mark turns out excellent work.

    I don't think so, Jim will not thread them. I just tried over the winter he doesn't even want to work on a Annie.... jim

    I think we should let Jim speak for himself if Pete wants to contact him. Jim has threaded and barreled an Annie for me, but it was a few years ago. bob

    I think we are all set

    I relayed the information to my friend. The shooter is a College Shooter on a scholarship soooooo. I was surprised to hear schools leave all things rifle to the students.

    Pete, maybe some of them, but most collegiate shooters furnish their own rifles.

    If i were running things, I'd have an Armorer present to work on guns. I'm sure one would work for a lot less than the prof who only teach one class per semester. Just sayin.

    In my way of thinking, why not the School ? Certainly they aren't un affordable. Do football players buy their own pads, etc?

    I live right down the road from him and i have known him forever 30 years and he is semi retired and did build a couple of guns last winter but he doesn't want to fool with an Annie let alone thread them and will only glue in for what they are worth. so call him and see ... jim
