Custom-built M1s are a special type of
firearm, built within fairly narrow boundaries in terms of features and
qualities that customers expect to see. Many times these features are
duplicated by the tool-literate shooter with good results; the rifles are
functional and provide most of what the average shooter wants.
What makes a DGR custom built rifle worth
the expense? Is it just the cosmetics? Is it just a fee for the cachet of a
recognized signature on the rifle? Or is there something in the combination of
mechanical refinement and esthetic craftsmanship that truly does set a masterís
work above and beyond the hobbyist? DGR understands the combination of
esthetics, accuracy and function and combines these in the building or
re-building of M1s.
The hobbyist can purchase the same
barrel, stock, springs and parts, but most do not know what it takes to fine
tune these parts into an M1 that will achieve its full potential. This is
where DGR excels. With almost two decades of experience in finishing and building M1s, DGR
has accumulated the tools and knowledge required to combine these features into
exceptional firearms. Our experience can instantly be seen in the metal and
wood finishing aspects of DGRís M1 building. DGR has perfected the finishing of
the M1s wood and metal far beyond what is generally seen in the industry or
produced by the hobbyist today.
From Camp Perry to local shooting clubs,
DGR rifles have been winning M1 matches. With careful analysis of trends in the
industry and feedback from shooters DGR continues to push the envelope while
keeping the needs of the shooter in mind. When the US State Department needed
parade rifles, they contracted with DGR. Customers have recognized DGRís
craftsmanship and have helped to make DGR a leader in the industry.
