    Jason has done multiple classes with me over the past several years striving to become the best rifle builder he can for his business. I recently shot one of Jason's precision rifles at our local range, and it shot extremely well. lt was reliable and very accurate. His workmanship and attention to detail on building this rifle was extremely good also. I do not hesitate at all to recommend his workmanship and his rifles!”
