    I believe the outfit you are referring to is Gibbs Rifle Company, which is a division of Navy arms. They take #4's and 2A Ishapores and modify and customize them in all kinds of ways. You can reach them by following this link: http://www.gibbsrifle.com/
    If you are looking for a #4 to customize Allan Schisel has a couple left for between $150.00-$170.00: http://www.allans-armory.com/
    If you are looking for a particular #4 or #5, Kevin Carney of North China Arms is one of the best dealers I've found for locating difficult C&R rifles and pistols: http://www.armscenter.com/nca/index.html
    Both Allan and Kevin are friends of mine and are super guys. Kevin can also give you all the info about anything Gibbs offers.

    Hope this helps,

    Jesse, do you know if Gibbs is thinking of making Parker-Hale rifles again? I'd love to have a 98 Mauser with a 10-round box magazine!! I'll be in HEAVENNNN!!
