Yukon 58 GS
Breech loading 58 caliber.
The engraved barrel legend.
Fine Bastone Walnut. Note brass machined
wedding bands attaching stocks.
The receiver and bolt are Aluminum
Bronze. Not brass. Brass has a tensile strength of approx. 30,000
psi. Aluminum Bronze has a tensile of 85,000 psi. Chrome Moly
steel is only 90,000 psi.
Billet machined trigger housing with
lamb's tongue. Fine two stage trigger.
Reservoir, firing valve, intake end
cap and valve, and hammer tube are stainless steel. Super strength
- nasty to machine. Brass machined knobs.
You will note a strong family resemblance
to the original 45 V-Twin. There are major differences though
in the layout. This is reservoir under barrel by design. It's
a stout rifle with several times the power rating of the V-Twin.
This is a beast. Yes - I chose to run it at 680 fpe for the hunt.
I've not explored it's limits.
It was wearing this large target scope
for Saturday's hunt. Actually, many things are available for sighting
options. I had made Weaver ring saddles for this application.
Without them, the turned bronze receiver shows more actually.
Click over for the Wild
Boar Hunt of 04 using this rifle. Story to be added to as
time allows. Folks were asking about the rifle so I posted this.
As with everything I make, they aren't
exactly catalog items, so I show you portions of development and
usage stages without the huge commitment of a specific promotional
campaign. One is enough for now. I've made it to use and proven
it in the field. If you think you need one, we can go from there.
