We start with your rifle and artfully refashion the stock into the slender, graceful form of those beautiful sporting rifles of the late 19th and early 20th Century which initially inspired Mr. Bill Ruger and Mr. Samuel Cummins, founder of the old Interarms company, to produce the Ruger No.1 and M77 and the Interarms Mark X Mauser and Mini Mauser rifles, respectively.
In creating our Early Mauser Sporting Rifle, we also raise the trigger guard and floor plate about 1/4-inch which results in an incredibly slender bolt action rifle that handles like the finest of shotguns. It just seems to float to your shoulder and aim itself! We also offer optional barrel services and sights which can complete the classic look of those early Oberndorf Mausers without their high cost.
Additionally, we re-checker the stock at 20 - 22 lines per inch and finish with an all-weather factory-type "Hunter" finish. The price is a mere fraction of the cost of restocking your rifle or that of a custom build and the result is a Trophy Rifle that is sure to become an heirloom.
Most people know me primarily as a rifleman. However, I also have a keen interest in handguns - specifically, those designed for hunting big game. Behind the scenes I've been developing a new High Powered 1911 Pistol - the .45 SUPER LONGSLIDE.
Click the .45 Super Longslide link at the top for information about this spectacular handgun.
Whether we craft a No. 1, an M77, or our Early Mauser Sporting Rifle, we will produce for you a Trophy Rifle that handles so wonderfully that you have to experience it to believe how removing just the right amount of wood - in just the right places - can make even a clubby rifle handle like a fine shotgun. Our customers agree that It's a real joy to hunt with one of our Trophy Rifles.
And now get ready for our Trophy Handguns!

The Trophy Rifle
"Life is too short to hunt with an ugly gun."
~ Richard Adamson
Oh what a feeling!
Many hunters develop a close bond with their primary rifle. Over time it becomes more to them than just a firearm and a tool of the harvest. It becomes a very personal possession - a trusted companion on every hunt.
Because of its quality of design, materials, and craftsmanship, it stands the test of time and continues to prove to be more than up to the task of bringing home the harvest without fail. Truly, such a special rifle is as much a trophy as the rack of horns or game head on the wall in the den. Each time it’s taken from its case and handled, it quietly reminds of those hard hunts endured to earn that meat in the larder and the horns on the wall. Yes, a good rifle becomes more than a mere tool, in time it becomes a cherished trophy, too.
We believe that every hunter deserves to own and hunt with at least one Great Rifle in your lifetime. It's a rifle that becomes a trusted friend and a treasured heirloom. We can design and craft a Ruger No. 1, our Pre-War 77, or our new Early Mauser Sporting Rifle that will become that One Great Rifle for you.
