    Bill,

    Listed below is the current list of J-PAT SPEC rifles:

    SPEC 1. Robert Oates "Primevil"

    SPEC 2. Charles King (AKA BUBKING) Name: TBD

    SPEC 3. Larry Parsons: Name TBD

    SPEC 4. Anthony Wright: Name TBD

    SPEC 5. Mike Sherill: Name TBD

    SPEC 6. Bill Collaros "Waltzing Matilda"

    SPEC 7. Brian Stehlik: Name TBD

    SPEC 8 Brian Stehlik: Name TBD

    SPEC 9. Larry Mills: "Tombstone"

    SPEC 10. Not announced "The Virginian"

    SPEC 11. Norm Flynn "Red River"

    SPEC 12. Brian Brandt: Name TBD

    SPEC 13. Still available as I write this.

    I'm going to make an effort to track these rifles and their owners and would appreciate any help I can get.

    Please note only one J-PAT SPEC rifle is available and that will be lucky number 13.

    As most know, these rifles are, and will be, very special competition rifles.

    They will all have a distinctive look with the actions being Jeweled (engine turned) and their SPEC number on the side of the action.

    Only the best components will be used and they will be handcrafted with great attention to detail.

    It remains to be seen if they will achieve lasting notoriety as Calfee SPEC rifles have but it will be interesting to see.

    TKH

    UPDATE: SPEC 13 has been ordered by Dennis Cronin. He has not picked a name for the rifle yet.

    All J-PAT SPEC rifles are now sold.

    Bill,

    I really wanted a Calfee SPEC rifle but was never able to get one.

    When I first heard of the J-PAT SPEC rifles I was very much tempted into trying to get on his list.

    But when Bill retired it forced me into doing my own gun work. Bill has shared with me a lot of information on his techniques. I've actually been to his shop a couple of times.

    So I've been doing my own work for years now.

    I've decided I would rather shoot my own work and to see how much, if anything, I've learned. I'm going to chase down opportunities to shoot against these J-PAT SPEC rifles.

    When I beat one I'll put a notch in my stock, when I get beat by one I'll go back and work harder.

    I know the standard these J-PAT SPEC rifles represent and I want to meet or beat that standard, just as I did when I shot against Calfee SPEC rifles.

    That's my attitude and I'm sticking with it.

    TKH

    Do you know who will get SPEC P10, and, will the name be "THE VIRGINIAN"?



    TDX, you know if I could build just one more SPEC rifle, which is not going to happen by the way, it would be named "THE VIRGINIAN"

    Once again, it isn't going to happen, but man, that is an Iconic name for a SPEC rifle....


    By the way, I'd use the same stock graphics and black paint that I used on THE SHERIFF that I build for the ole Hawk several years ago.....

    Bill,

    The buyer does not wish his/her name to be known at this time. But I do believe SPEC 10 will be "The Virginian".

    It would be a crying shame if it wasn't.

    I wish you would get off your lazy tail and produce that last Calfee SPEC rifle and we would have both a Calfee SPEC "The Virginian" and a J-PAT SPEC rifle "The Virginian".

    That would be really special. It would just about drive everyone insane with two Virginian's to worry about.

    Dreaming, just dreaming.

    I should be happy that Jeff will produce his J-PAT SPEC "The Virginian".

    Your Friend,
    TKH (4628).

    Tony, Jeff Patterson just left my shop......


    He brings things he's working on, sometimes, for me to give my stamp of approval to.......( like my stamp of approval is needed, which it's not)


    Anyway Tony, that man is better at this time in his young RFBR career than I was in my prime.


    By the way, the piece Jeff brought out for my inspection was absolutely perfect......


    Oh, oh, before I forget......


    Jeff is going to do some more octagons........I believe he just got one in......which he will have to re-lap, of course....




    Finally:



    Tony, I'd give about anything if I could get off my lazy tail, as you call it, and produce another Calfee SPEC.....THE VIRGINIAN...


    But those days are gone.......

    Bill,

    I'm just poking at you. I very much know what it is like not being able to do as you once could.

    I mean no harm. But sometimes I dream not of how things are, but how I would like things to be.

    I guess that is in some ways like living your youth again.

    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.

    Your friend,

    TKH (4628)
