    Default A custom rifle from Denmark

    Here's a one-off 9.3x62mm big game hunting rifle that we've build for a left-handed customer. As this is our first post, I'll start off with a short introduction. We're a small manufacturer based in Denmark. Our mission is to build rifles with unparalleled precision, complete in a beautiful and high quality package. Everything is hand made and she'll do 0.5" groups.

    Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoy the pictures.

    Welcome to AH Forums. The rifle is absolutely beautiful, being a lefty myself makes it all the more appealing.
    Did you do the stock work as well as metal work on this rifle?
    Both look fantastic.
    I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

    Thank you Tim. All the metal and stock work on this one is done by us, though the engraving is done by an artist in England and the obvious things like the rings, optics etc. are sourced elsewhere.
    Interesting story, our rifling bench is a 117 year old Pratt & Whitney because we insist on doing the rifling the old fashioned way by cutting to gain ultimate precision.

    An incredible decelerator system in that butt stock. I have never seen that kind of storage design. Creative.

    Gorgeous finishes all the way round.

    Here I was hoping someone had foregone a deposit....

    I am not a big fan of full stocked rifles, but the work sure looks of capital quality. That kind of quality comes at a price though, likely more for the very well heeled sportsman. Tap should have a look at this!

    WOW! Stunning work! Cut your own barrels too, wow again. Do you find any problems with point of impact changing with a warming barrel with the full stock as opposed to rifles you may make with normal length stocks? If not, how do you control it? I'm just an amateur gunsmith doing my own rifles only but I have fun at it anyway.
    Welcome and it's great to have you on board. Please comment often.
    PS: I don't suppose you'd share your stock finishing method with us would you? :-)

    Welcome to AH

    While your rifle is top of the line, and few on here may be able to afford. The workmanship and woodwork are second to none that i have found. Your rifle is outstanding if i must say so.


    The caliber selection in my opinion for your rifles is very limited.

    Having read your web before plus having it bookmarked. I like looking at your rifle.

    A few questions for you.

    Accuracy, i have not found what your rifles performance will do.

    It appears that many of your rifles are purchased by individuals who make them wall hangers.

    I know, i would have a difficult time traveling with JRC rifle when they hit a certain bench mark.

    I've always coveted a well made mannlicher and this is one of the best I've "seen".

    I love they way a full-wood feels in the hands and handles when in use.
    It's hard to explain how well they point and swing when stocked correctly, and this one looks as though it is stocked correctly.

    Great straight lines to the stock and well shaped through the main barrel channel.

    From the pictures you have provided the quality of workmanship looks to be of a very high standard.

    From a practicle hunting prespective I think I'd rather have me spare cartridges in an ammo holder rather than contained inside the stock, but that's my personal taste as oposed to any critisism of the build.

    What length is the barrel ?

    Congrats on what appears to be a very high standard of workmanship.

    For a rifle that runs around 50K USD.

    all I wanted to know about the accuracy was the 1/2 inch groups, is that for 10 - 25 - 50 - 75 or 100 meters.

    The storage unit in the butt stock is fairly common in europe and can be found in a lot of higher quality drillings another thing I like about this rifle.

    Welcome to the forum
    The Jensen rifles are very good looking and of great quality, but sadly I will never have the money to buy one.
    All I can do, is to look at them and drool.

    It does not cost $50.000, I don't know where those numbers are coming from. And thanks for the praising words by the way!
