For sale is an un-used (never left the shop) fully custom 7mm-08 Rifle by Dave Wylde at Valkyrie Rifles. Whilst the heavy barrel has been reprofiled with stalking in mind, it is still too heavy for the person who ordered it so they have decided to try and sell it rather than sign it onto their licence. It weights a smidge under 5kg (un-scoped), and is beautifully balanced but not for those who like a lightweight gun. We would suggest this is a good option for anyone involved in park culling, or static shooting, or who just like a heavier rifle!
Its a Thor action with fluted bolt and zero Cant one piece rail. Tactical bolt knob.
The barrel started life as a 32 inch heavy varmint Bartlien. Its now reprofiled, fluted and 18" long. Screwcut 14mm x 1 and invisible capped.
Trigger is a jewel.
The stock is a Manners T5 and has been modified in the bolt slot and ejection port area to better fit the action. Then pillar and devcon bedded.
Paintwork on the action is cerakote OD green and graphite black.
Paintwork on the stock is Duracoat tactical flat black, woodland tan, snow grey and OD green. Its far harder wearing than C series cerakote on a stock. The manners stocks are also painted in Duracoat from the factory.
A very short, pointable rifle that balances beautifully.
Rifle cost £4155 to put together, but this is a custom-spec rifle so expectations are realistic... sensible offers welcome but please bear in mind that this rifle is completely new and does not come with the usual 6-12 month wait for a custom rifle.
