    Jeff Patterson's J-PAT SPEC Rifles

    I have recently learned that Jeff Pattereson is going to limit the number of J-PAT SPEC rifles to 13. That is right only 13 of these rifles will be built.

    The sad news is all but one has already been sold.

    Listed below is the current list of J-PAT SPEC rifles:

    SPEC 1. Robert Oates "Primevil"

    SPEC 2. Charles King (AKA BUBKING) Name: TBD

    SPEC 3. Larry Parsons: Name TBD

    SPEC 4. Anthony Wright: Name TBD

    SPEC 5. Mike Sherill: Name TBD

    SPEC 6. Bill Collaros "Waltzing Matilda"

    SPEC 7. Brian Stehlik: Name TBD

    SPEC 8. Brian Stehlik: Name TBD

    SPEC 9. Larry Mills: "Tombstone"

    SPEC 10. Not announced "The Virginian"

    SPEC 11. Norm Flynn "Red River"

    SPEC 12. Brian Brandt: Name TBD

    SPEC 13. Still available as I write this.


    As most know, these rifles are, and will be, very special competition rifles.

    They will all have a distinctive look with the actions being Jeweled (engine turned) and their SPEC number on the side of the action.

    Only the best components will be used and they will be handcrafted with great attention to detail.

    It remains to be seen if they will achieve lasting notoriety as Calfee SPEC rifles have but it will be interesting to see.

    The only J-PAT SPEC rifle delivered to date is Primevil to Robert Oates.

    That is the run down as I know it. I would like to keep track of these rifles and to document their performance in competition.

    If anyone has additional information please post it here.

    TKH (4628).

    UPDATE: SPEC 13 has been ordered by Dennis Cronin. He has not picked a name for the rifle yet.

    All J-PAT SPEC rifles are now sold.

    It was bit of a surprise Robert was not in attendance at the recent IR50/50 indoor nationals. If for no other reason than to show off his new shooting stick.
    Robert usually attends.

    Bill,
    All others on the list are in the U.S. so unless someone not from the U.S. gets SPEC 13 yours will be the only one leaving.
    Iím glad to see you on the list because I know you will be able to showcase the rifle as it deserves.

    That did not take long!

    Well, that certainly didn't take long.

    SPEC 13 has been ordered by Dennis Cronin. He has not picked a name for the rifle yet

    All 13 J-PAT SPEC rifles are now sold.

    Now it's up the Jeff to work his magic.

    pretty quick

    Tony,
    I wonder if all the Calfee SPEC rifles were spoken for in the same short amount of time, that JPats were ? Or was Calfee's done over a course of years ?

    As I remember it very few people even knew there was such a thing as a Calfee SPEC rifle.

    At the time (2008-2009) I was trying to get Calfee to build me a rifle. It took a very long time just to get in direct contact with him.

    He didn't answer his phone nor did he return letters. At this time he was turning out about a rifle a week and really didn't want additional orders.

    The SPEC rifle thing just kind of happened all at once, it was born out of what Bill had been calling his project rifles.

    Jim Pepper coined the term "Calfee SPEC rifles" and Bill ran with it. He started calling the rifles he completely built SPEC rifles. Then all of a sudden they were no more.

    Tony Blosser had the last order in for SPEC 10, The Virginian but it was never built. I can't go into the reasons, but it wasn't because Bill didn't want to build it.

    There were only seven Calfee SPEC rifles built. One would think there was a hundred of them from how well they are known around the world.

    It will be interesting to follow the J-PAT SPEC rifles. They may take us to a new level.

    Tony, it might be nice to keep this thread as a sticky note (similar to the Calfee rifle thread), so you have the details since the first Spec was produced. We can update as Jeff proceeds with assembly of the remaining rifles in this set.

    Just a thought...

    I would like to see it as a sticky too, but I think it has to be rated with 5 stars and have a bunch of views.

    Maybe it will make it in the future.

    What is a J-PAT SPEC Rifle?

    Since only one of these rifles has been delivered (Primevil) we only know what Jeff used to build it.

    I'm guessing Jeff will use pretty much use the same components for the other 12 J-PAT SPEC rifles.

    The action is a three lug Turbo V-3. These actions come with the crescent shaped firing pin.

    Many doubt the crescent pin is worth having. I've spent a lot of time on that, and I can't say for certain there is anything gained from it.

    Here is a picture of pin strikes. Notice the crescent pins hits a much larger portion of the rim than the chisel pin.

    In theory that should increase the odds of striking a place certain to ignite the powder. Leading to more consistent ignition. Again, I can't prove that makes a difference.

    The action has also been blue printed.

    When I say "blue printed" that may not be an accurate term. While it is true some things in the action have been modified,

    and many things have been checked, that in itself doesn't equal true "blue printing".

    I think it more accurate to call this "action tuning".

    The barrel is a Muller. I believe it to be an 8 groove. I don't know if Jeff will use Muller's on all the J-PAT SPEC rifles. But he may.

    The trigger is a Flavio Fare whisper Trigger.

    The tuner is a traditional Harrel's, and the stock is a full fill Mc Millen.

    Optics are the choice of the owner, but it is a good bet that it will be Nightforce or Kahales.

    That is the package as I know it. If you know of differences, please post them here.

    Tony, from the post that JP did on another site, here's Primevil's details:
    - V3 with Crescent firing pin
    - FF Whisper 2 trigger
    - Muller 8 groove barrel
    - McMillan full fiberglass stock
    - Harrell's tuner

    Larry,

    That is what I have also. I just forgot the Flavio Fare Whisper trigger.

    Thanks for reminding me.
