"My Todd Ramirez 7 x 57 is by far the nicest rifle I've ever owned... and to my thinking it's designed and built the way a fine bolt action rifle should be. In the field it's a joy to carry, and it handles like a dream. It has not yet failed me, and I'm sure it never will." Craig Boddington

Todd built Craig this 7 x 57. It is a left handed square bridged rifle. The wood is Bastone with a red stain and an oil finish. Craig has hunted various parts of the world using this gun.
