Mr. Noreen is a talented craftsman and gunmaker. He sold his superb proprietary action to Waffenfabrik Hein which subsequently went out of business. He has since left the world of fine wlnut and blued steel to join the Dark Side building large bore rifles on the AR platform with his son. This piece has been to Africa and tasted buffalo. It does have some dents and dings from field use. Blue remains at 98%, stock finish at 95% and checkering at 99% This is excellent quality and value in a true and outstanding magnum length action.
