    I have seen Seitz, TS-2000, Alfermann guns around but never one of the Bill Cole singles. What are the pros and cons of the Cole, weight balance etc?

    I had one, and I shot it well, only problem I had with it was the release trigger, and I couldn't get any one (Bill) to fix or replace the trigger, so I sold the gun, my loss ($$$$$$) but it handled and pointed well. Jim

    Bill Coles gunsmith was Ed Haley 541-314-5369 cell. He is in Plymouth, Washington....just over the line from Portland, Oregon. The Cole SBT parts inventory was with Bills Wife couple years ago.....guess Bill Jr has parts now??
    I've got 2 Cole SBT's......Great Guns with no issues.

    Mike was "PerazziBigBore" he passed away a while back.
    Mike undertook a number of interesting projects over the years.
    Building the titanium cole was one of them.
