Rising Block Single Shot rifle

7X65R


7X65R Rising block single shot. Color case hardened Rising Block action machined from 8620 steel. Delicate English scroll engraving with 22k gold inlay borders. Barrel block and cavity are wire EDM cut for precision. Bushed firing pin, coil spring driven striker and an excellent trigger set at 2 lbs. Shilen barrel with quarter rib, sculpted sling swivel band and front sight base.The quarter rib has talley style dovetails machined in. One standing/one folding rear sight, front sight is small bead with flip up night site.

Beautiful and dense Turkish walnut stock with hand rubbed oil finish, 22lpi checkering. Pachmeyer decelerator pad and sunburst grip cap. The extractor works very well and will eject the case with a quick opening of the action. The safety blocks both the trigger and the sear, making the rifle very safe. 7X65R is and excellent cartridge, very similar in performance to the .280 Remington.

This rifle shoots like a dream. Crisp and light trigger with no creep. Shoots sub MOA groups with S&B factory ammo.

With the upgraded wood quality and gold inlays, this rifle would normally be priced at $10,000. In an effort to get this new action design into customers hands, I have priced the rifle without the $1500 in upgrades.

All of the work was done by me in my show with exception of drilling and rifling the barrel.


Price: $8500 reduced to $6000

The engraving and wood alone are worth more than the asking price. $6,000 is an absolute steal.

She's a wonderful rifle in a wonderful cartridge. Someone is about to get lucky.

By the way, I love how the safety lever swings side to side. It is a wonderfully intuitive and tactile approach (no mistaking its position).

Thanks!! The safety blocks both the sear and trigger, and as you said, it's easy to know it's position and easy to operate while aiming without fumbling for it.

No kidding. I can't go all the way to Zim and not shoot a buffalo.

But, I have been saying for years that I will have a Bradshaw rifle one day.

Trying to figure out what I can sell!

Hey Baily...trade you some acreage in Ozark County Missouri for this rifle! :) :D

Rifle is sold! Thank you for all the kind comments.

I have several more of these actions in process. The next one will be chambered in 30R Blaser. The action is 80% finished and almost ready to stock.

Well, if it is half as elegant in the hand as it is in a photo, I think that I’ll have every reason to be smitten. (y) Will let you know if it works on a deer.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
