Custom Takedown Rifles

Custom Takedown Rifles

Our take down models can be built on most desirable bolt actions as a basis for the basic rifle.  There is an almost unlimited choice of compatible calibers to choose from. And the number of barrels per rifle is only limited by your imagination and your wallet.

More and more hunters, especially those who travel a lot, are requesting take down rifles.  Placed in a compact Cabela’s or similar take down case, it can be added to most large travel bags or duffels.  It is secure and disguised in a duffel or bag and there is less chance of theft of your rifles.  The ease of portability has also been a fine selling point for our take down rifles.

Each scope will return to zero with each change of barrel. This makes it ideal for quick change overs in hunting situations.

Custom Takedown Rifle Choices

All rifles are priced based on action choice, caliber choices and stock choices.  We will give each client a clear and concise quote after a thorough consultation based on wants, needs and desires along with compatibility of calibers.

TAKEDOWN CONVERSIONS:

The Ruger Hawkeye rifles lend themselves quite well to our takedown system.  For those who would like the portability of a takedown rifle, but not the expense of a full custom rifle we will be glad to make your Ruger Hawkeye into a takedown rifle.

The takedown rifle is very easy to put into a backpack with the scope for long backpack hunts on foot, horseback, or for airline travel.

These rifles have the same accuracy, time and again, as our full custom takedown rifles.

*PLEASE NOTE*

The rifles pictured here are just a small sampling of the rifles Randy has built over the years. Each rifle, depending on components, will be individually priced at the time of the order.

All rifles pictured on this site are custom rifles built for individual clients specifically for their own needs, uses and budget. We do not stock rifles on hand, but build rifles on order to each client’s particular specifications. We also do custom conversions. We will be glad to build a rifle custom tailored to your needs, desires and budget. A rifle may be built similar to any of the rifles depicted or may be totally different. If you do not see something on this site that you wish, that does not mean it cannot be built.  Please inquire..

All orders must have a minimum of 70% down to start the order and the balance will be due prior to the completion of the rifle.  The time frame for that balance will depend on each individual order and turnaround time.

Occasionally a rifle will be placed on the site for sale. In that case it will be noted that the rifle is for sale and a price will accompany the picture and description of the rifle.
