Brett,

Congrats on your new acquisition. :cool: Nice building job and a wonderful report.

I love woodworking and have considered one of these kits. I may have to build one over the winter.

Thanks,

Ron

I've had the pleasure of viewing through 3 of Randy's scopes (actually one that is HIS) and 2 sold by him and built by the owners. I've also had the pleasure of viewing with Randy and have to say he is just a "Quality Guy" all around. He won't settle for less than THE BEST in anything, from materials to accessories, to workmanship. You CAN pay less, but you'll GET less.

I'm glad the new scope went together well and you're happy. When you consider all those wood parts were made and cut in Colorado where it's High and Dry, and you put them together in S.FL where it's Low and Wet, it's amazing you had no problems, but Randy takes EVERYTHING into consideration when he builds kits, so really, it's no surprise.

Enjoy that beautiful scope, I know you will.
