Lansing, Michigan – -(Ammoland.com)- Scott McRee cannot accept failure.
When one of his rifles failed 15 years ago, he took matters into his own hands and thus was born McRees Precision (www.McReesPrecision.net).
Since then, Scott has built his business on customer service and unsurpassed quality for the discriminating marksmen – be they in real-world combat, the thin blue line, competition shooting, or hunting applications.
Based on the Remington model 700 action, his high-quality firearms are in use by people around the globe, who stake their lives on his products – or, as Scott refers to them: systems. Typically in .308 Winchester or .300 Winchester Magnum calibers, they are in use by the ATF, FBI, Secret Service and state and local law enforcement authorities.
As an example of personal customer support, Scott shared a story with me dating back to the year 2011, when he learned about a Special Forces sniper team being deployed to the “Sand Box” in a mere 72 hours.
The soldiers had sent their sniper rifles to Remington for refurbishing, and believe it or not, were heading to the Middle East without them.
When the unit commander called McRees Precision for a solution, Scott said, “Get your guys here as fast as you can!” With no time to waste, five desperate Army servicemen piled into the military vehicle and drove eight hours non-stop to Scott’s shop in Mississippi. They arrived after hours, but Scott was prepared with the door open.
The Special Forces team (to remain nameless) did what they could to help and in short order, the requisite three systems were assembled from inventory. After a verbal train-up on the systems, the men were back in the truck heading back to their command.
Scott continued his over-seas assistance with the troops via phone support for the following year, while the soldiers achieved three high-value targets with his systems. A year later, the team returned home and have been friends with Scott ever since.
McRees Precision works with the Marine Corps, Army, and primarily special Navy people, but its components are also excellent for civilian and hunting applications.
My having had an opportunity to fire one of the .308 systems topped with a Leupold Mark 6 riflescope shooting steel at 200 yards, made it a can’t-miss proposition firing military 175-grain, long-range ammo.
Bolt-on components are available for the do-it-yourselfer or your personal barreled action can be upgraded from a cost of $1200 to several thousand dollars with the average being $2500.
For that, you’ll get a one-week turnaround, a lifetime warranty, and support from a firm that genuinely means it.
