    Tested, Tried And True... All Around The World.
    The CBE



    “Outdoor Hall of Fame” member and TV personality Colorado Buck has teamed up with Montana Rifle Company to create the Colorado Buck Edition (CBE) rifle; a dependable, long-range design that is as rugged as they come. A 24” hand lapped, match grade barrel is mated to the Montana Flats Muzzle Brake to reduce recoil, and the Tungsten Gray Cerakote barreled action is set in a carbon fiber, Kevlar-reinforced stock in Colorado’s favorite caramel brown with black spider webbing finish. Available in a selection of calibers, the CBE Rifle is fully equipped and ready to travel the world with you and get the job done.

    What is the weight of the rifle ?
    Is it possible to get other chamberings such as 280AI
    or 6.5 Weatherby ?

    6 lb 5 oz in short action 6.15 in long
    we can make it in any caliber- we add a small up charge in non standard calibers to offset tooling needs. But yes I have one currently in 6.5 Creedmoor

    Is the brake removable and if so is a thread cover included?

    May I suggest a few additions for the larger calibers seeing as you will most likely be catering to the AH community and the like?

    The threaded muzzle protector is a must...regardless of the other requests.
    A barrel band front sling swivel and seal up the one on the stock.
    Mount a barrel band hooded front sight with fiber optic post.
    Rear V notch sight dovetailed to the barrel with a quarter rib.

    And while I'm asking for the world...
    Machined in mounts on the action for QD rings.

    Do all that and keep the price under $3.5K...you will not be able to keep this rifle in stock.
    Make two models the CB Alaskan in stainless and synthetic, the other walnut and blued AH edition!

    Please read thread...

    Yeh, concur with Beemaa and would add forget the “MARLBORO MAN”.
    Keep the PR to animals and rifle pics. Less joke and more folk will do the job.

    Forgot to mention that you may want to up the weight just a wee bit for the 404J.
    I will default to others who have shot the 404J for the specific weight but I will take a guess at 8.5-10# for a range.

    My 375 H&H SS synthetic stocked, muzzle brake, sling, loaded and with VX-6 scope is right at 10 lbs on my scale.

    I agree with you, 10# is right around what I would be looking for in a 375H&H production rifle.
    However a 404J that comes in at 7#, that's a whole new ballgame.

    I thought the quote was for 6#? Couldn’t understand how the long action was less weight then the short action.

    Yeah, I lost it there too.
    I think what they mean is 6 lb 5 oz for short and 6 lb 15 oz for long.
    That's all I got, unless they mean the long action is actually 6.15#.
    Can't we just use grams as a unit of measure for weight and be done with the imperial system.

    Is that weight even possible for a DG rifle ?my 458 Lott weighs 9# 6 oz ready for the need, and it is about as light as I want it. My Kimber 375 h&h weighs 8+ and 6 # in a 505 G would be formidable.

    I believe he means 6.15 inches long. I don’t think he meant to spec any of their DG rifles at 6 lb 5 oz. I believe he was answering for the 280AI rifle.
    My 375 H&H I gave the specs for above is their CBE model. Their weights are not on the website that I could find. All I have seen/handled are close to the same as Win Mdl 70s. Maybe a bit heavier even.
    Personally I did not want a CBE model, but I wanted a rifle set up for Alaska, ie, stainless steel, synthetic stock, ceracote, etc. I also needed a muzzlebrake due to a torn retina. I have removed the brake to try to use it without and see how my eye does. But Id rather be deaf than blindo_O!

    That's one thing I have noticed about the options as the caliber goes above 375, not a lot of stainless/synthetic options.
    Probably due to the fact that most who want these calibers are going to Africa where the weather is just a wee bit more arid.
    Plus beautiful wood is part of the mystique of owning a DG caliber rifle.

    Sorry to hear about your torn retina and agree with the blind vs deaf argument!

    Interesting that the OP hasn't posted a since Monday, must have taken off for the holiday.
    Could have cleared up any confusion and subsequent speculation real quick.

    Thank you for the clarification.

    Any word on the QD compatible action, quarter rib, V-notch rear sight, barrel band front sling stud and barrel band front fiber optic sight?
    All that chambered for 404 Jeff would be kinda sweet...matter of fact, really sweet.

    I’m glad to see them offer a 404j. Now we’ll just have to wait and see. Wonder if these will be available in left handed version. We’ve been waiting a few years for a left handed ph action. I did have them put together me a 458lott a few years ago and it came out the way I wanted it. It weighs 8.2 so is that going to be around the weight for the 404?

    We are using all input in the new products. we will have a leaf sight and sling swivel on the 404J. We will have the new products up first week of January, as well as our new web site
    We will offer an Alaskan series with synthetic /cerakote etc as well as African Series in wood.
    I think all will be happy with the selections.
    There were always rumors of a "coming soon" left hand PH action- but there were never any efforts made by the previous owners to do this--
    We are currently going into production on the PH action in both stainless and Chromoly-- and will "actually deliver " these offerings in first quarter 2019-
    We are making progress guys and fast!!
    See you all at SCI/DSC/Sheep show etc etc
