In the spirit of the thread title, wish list, I would WISH to see these: 223AI, 257Roberts AI, 25-06AI, 6.5-06 AI, 280AI FOR SURE,
35 WhelenAI (much better shoulder design than 35Whelen)!!!
Yes, I know those are not likely, but the thread is about a wish list & after all another company thinks enough of these to offer them
in a custom shop, DID I SAY CUSTOM SHOP, what a concept!!
Oh yea, 9.3X62
And now for those chamberings/barrel lengths which should be offered but for some weird reason are not:
243, 270, 30-06, 22-250 & 35 Whelen in 26" barrels, I mean what's up with this. These rifles with a 26" barrel are the length of a 22" bolt gun & they aren't too long, so what's the deal, why not get the ballistics & the gun is still light. Other current offerings could benefit also, but these the most. Why in the world does NEF not know this when another company is selling 28" tubes like hotcakes!
6.5X55, 260 , 7X57, 444, 405, 338-06A-Square, 338 Federal. These barrels should ALL be offered with a 26" barrel. Both these &
the rounds I mentioned that are already offered but adding a 26" Barrel WILL work if NEF markets these properly. A serious shooter who may for some reason want a shorter barrel can have a gunsmith cut it to ANY legal length they want & have it target crowned for a very low price.
To appeal to 2 different price sgments, they could keep the std.NEF pretty much like it is except a little more care in the fitting, but
make the Ultras a little nicer with a small price increase, I don't think that would effect the Ultra buyer much.
They should have a website that sells instead of tells & only tells part of what is available. I don't know if they have a Rep. who makes the shows or promotes to big retailers face to face, I have never seen one. They should have mag. advertising that promotes the product, current adds are not agressive enough.
I see NEF as a Sleeping Giant who could be movers & shakers if they come out of their slumber.
