At Warner Tool Company, Inc., we do not build just any rifle. We take great pride in catering to the long range, precision shooter who demands consistency and perfection from their rifle.
We have what it takes to make your target rifle shoot to the best of its capability and yours. There are many requirements to completing a rifle that shoots a six inch group at 1000 yards, and we will not compromise any of them.
We have been at this for a long, long time – and we have seen technology leap forward. From the days when Al was manual machining (not really Al pictured below) to fancy CNC machines that Dan loves to run, we are confident that we can build you a bughole rifle!
In order for a gun to shoot at peak performance, the action threads must be true to the centerline axis of that action.
In addition, the lock-up face of the action must be perpendicular to that center line. If these conditions are not met, the force created by the torque of locking up the barrel to the action will not be evenly distributed. The result of this stress is a rifle that most likely will shoot poorly.
No matter how many lugs your action has, it is imperative that they mate well with those of the bolt. If they do not, the result is an uneven distribution of force on the action in the direction of the unmated lug(s).
We’ll slap some single-point cut threads on the tip of your muzzle – so you can slap a MOAB Brake on the end and be off to the races!
We cut the crown at 45 degrees to the center line of the bore and ensure that it is highly polished. We cut a recess to protect from possible impact.
Note, the picture over there (to the right) is of an old-school manual lathe. While we certainly could cut your barrel threads on one of our manuals, we don’t – because CNC! We just didn’t have enough pictures…
Our chamber reamers are treated like gold as each one is ground to meet critical dimensions. As a result, your polished chamber is dimensionally correct. This allows for longer case life as your brass will not expand as far as it would with a loose chamber.
We chuck up your rifle’s barrel so that the centerline of the bore is as close as possible to the centerline of the action. Thus, the cartridge is not forced into the center of the chamber by an inconcentric action/barrel fit.
If you intend to build a switch barrel rifle, the please see our Guidelines on swapping barrels.
All chambers are polished and free of tool marks, thus minimizing friction between both the brass and chamber, and more importantly, the bullet and lead angle. We have an extensive inventory of chamber reamers. If we do not have the cartridge you are looking for, we would be glad to make arrangements to acquire it.
Note: If you plan on supplying your own chamber reamer: It is subject to our inspection and approval prior to use and we reserve the right of refusal. Unless we supply the reamer, we will not be responsible for its condition. Any repairs or modifications we make to your reamer will be your financial responsibility. Unless otherwise stated, we require you to supply a head space gage and reamer print.
The last thing you want is a trigger that is inconsistent. We are ready to assist you in selecting the best trigger available for your action.
Choosing the stock that best fits you is as important as having a true action. If you are not comfortable in it, why would you own it?
That is why we encourage you to find what fits you best.
Although we know our stock is top-of-the-line, you may be more comfortable in another.
Please call us, as we have a variety from which to sample and choose.
