Buddy shoots one (on their prostaff) and I've handled it (28 Nosler) - very nice, shoots great.  They make a $3000 one and then their high end Glacier Ti one thats twice that.   You can save a couple grand on the highend by buying the parts separate - standard prefit action and their prefit barrel.  I haven't shot the $3000 one but imagine its close to the Fierce / Christenson level.

Yeah I saw that the cheaper model is sub moa guarantee and the glacier/tundra are sub 1/2 moa. I've thought about buying parts and building but i'm probably one of the most impatient people there are when it comes to waiting for stuff when i decide i want it lol.

I hear you on the lead times - If you want a custom by next fall you need to order now from most gunsmiths and its too late from some..............

You can buy a Savagae 110 ultralight that comes factory with a blueprint action and Proof barrel. Then send that action and barrel to Manners to be custom fitted for a stock. The savage action requires their chassis system which is custom bedding chassis. They will send you back your rifle ready to shoot. Mine shoots .5 moa

Total cost was about $2200
