Custom Rifles - All Weather Safari and Dangerous Game
Going to Africa is a rare opportunity and life changing experience. Your commitment as a sportsman must be mirrored in the rifle you carry. Our Safari and Dangerous Game rifles are typically built on proven control round feed action designs like the Dakota Arms Model 76 and Pre 64 Winchester Model 70’s.
The use of modern composite stocks, processes, and firearms coatings gives these guns an all weather capability intended for rugged and intense use.
Our unique pillar bedding system combined with double cross pinning the stock ensures your rifle delivers exceptional accuracy anywhere in the world.
Detail items such as Ken Howel Sling studs, properly timed screws, and clean lines deliver the respect and legacy inspired by this kind of rifle. LRI makes the effort to pay homage to this exclusive community.
Barrel crowns are not an afterthought, but rather a careful variation of the traditional sporter crown. Ours feature a true single pointed 11* relief angle that transitions elegantly to the well established radiused style sporter crown.
Our efforts are in no way intended to replace the classic designs of days past. They are meant as an alternative more suited to the modern sportsman. This is done through the use of advanced composites and finishes designed to go anywhere in the world.
Heavy recoiling cartridges such as the 416 Rigby are made manageable through the use of shock absorbing recoil pads, mercury recoil reduction tubes, and muzzle brakes when requested.
As always, we strive to build rifles that tell a story with every scratch and dent acquired only after a lifetime of faithful service.
