Sometimes there is a small niche that needs to be filled.
Our Black Timber Rifles provide a custom rifle approach to two somewhat, out of the mainstream cartridges; the 350 Legend and the 450 Marlin.
Both of these are most commonly found in lever action rifles that tend to be less accurate and less friendly to mounting a scope than a modern bolt action rifle.
We combine the Tikka T3 action with a Lilja match grade stainless steel barrel and McMillan Sako Hunter fiberglass stock in our Black Timber camo finish. Each rifle is individually aluminum pillar and glass bedded for maximum accuracy and consistency in any weather condition. The triggers are tuned to a crisp 2.75 pound pull. The factory polymer trigger guard is replaced with an aluminum trigger guard. And, all the metal is coated in a Graphite Black Cerakote finish for weather proofing. All rifles are shot for group to verify accuracy prior to delivery.
