Chiappa Rhino Revolver
MSRP: $980 to $1325
Chiappa designed the revolutionary Rhino Revolver to significantly reduce recoil and muzzle flip. The Rhino fires from the bottom chamber of the cylinder (6 o’clock position) and not the conventional top chamber (12 o’clock position). Firing from the lower position reduces flip, better controls bullet torque and shifts the recoil back, rather than up. The Rhino is currently chambered in .357 Magnum /.38 Special and .40 S&W. The revolver comes in barrel lengths of 2, 4, 5, and 6 inches, with the three smaller barrels in blue, polished nickel and the 6-inch version in a polished anodized gold finish. Chiappa plans to debut a new lightweight composite-poly frame Rhino in the near future.

High Tech Custom Rifles – Alaskan Pro Hunter
The Alaskan Pro Hunter, from guide and company founder Rich Reiley, is a synthetic-stocked, all-weather rifle, typically short-barreled and hence built for dangerous game and not the long-range shooter. A barrel band is also added so the gun carries lower on both the pack and the shoulder, which makes it easier to handle in heavy brush and thick cover. The Alaskan Pro Hunter can be chambered in the customer’s choice of caliber, but begins with the larger calibers, .338 and up, including the large-bore wildcats.
M77 Ruger Compact Magnum
Developed through Ruger’s partnership with Hornady, the new M77 Compact Magnums are based on a shortened .375 case and are chambered in .300 RCM or .338 RCM (and perform comparably to the .300 and .338 WinMags). The rifle’s overall length is just 35 ½ inches, making it an ideal weapon for Alaska’s thick brush and rugged terrain.
Wild West Guns
Made for Alaskans, the Wild West Guns Alaskan Co-Pilot begins with a factory-made Marlin 1895, which is dissembled and then converted into this fast-handling, take-down lever-action rifle. The barrel is cut and then ported to reduce recoil, and then re-crowned at either 16 ½, 18 or 20 inches. The action is modified to allow the use of the .457 Wild West Magnum, while still allowing use of standard 45-70 loads, or it is set upfor the .50 Alaskan.

Nosler Custom .325 WSM & Ammo
Rifle MSRP: $1795 Ammo MSRP: $29.95

But there are plenty of other reasons to make this your go-to gun for target practice and small game. If the single-action/double-action trigger and low profile adjustable sights don’t convince you, maybe Taurus’ Lifetime Repair Policy will.
