I have decided to sell my Bansner Ultimate Ovis Sheep rifle SCI gun of the year. For those of you not in the know about Mark Bansner, he builds the most beautiful sheep rifles you can own. Every detail about this rifle speaks class with nothing spared. This rifle was purchased at the SCI show about many years ago, and was built for the SCI fund raiser banquet. I have not fired it, and it remains just as the day it was purchased. I have owned another one of these rifles in .300 RUM and it shot .2's @ 200yds. This rifle is chambered in .270 WSM and has a 1-11" twist #3 Lilja Barrel. The action is Mark's proprietary action which was made by defiance for him. It has a blank magazine with 3rnd capacity to reduce weight. It is outfitted with a Jewell trigger set at 1.8lbs. The stock is Mark's own High Tech Stock which is hand laid carbon and has a Tan Stone fleck paint. All the metal finish including the Talley rings are coated with KG industries KCoat. The rifle is outfitted with a Swarovski Z3 with BRX reticle. Mark doesn't make this rifle anymore, but when he did the gun sold for $6,300.00 for gun only.... They are that good.

Mark barrels his guns with a method called the dial in method. Essentially dialing in the perfect harmonics to increase accuracy. This package comes with the Aluminum Fitted Americase for this rifle with the custom Bansner logo and the SCI logo. A build sheet comes with the gun and scope paperwork.

Gun Weight with Scope: 6lbs. 3oz.

Gun Weight without Scope: 5lbs. 2oz.

Price : $5850.00 shipped

I don't live too far from Mark and have the same in my own 264-300 WSM and it's been phenomenal. Son and I have made countless shots out to 720 yards on game essentially with a 5 lb rifle. 6 point something with a scope. That is definitely one of the finest rifles out there. That said I've been in touch with him and may have to rebarrel mine as it has greater than 2,000 rounds through the barrel at 3300 ft per second using very long high SD high BC bullets. PA custom rifles are shooters since Daniel Boone!

I had a .300 RUM too and that gun was a hair under 6lbs. And it shot phenomenal. I expect nothing less outof this one. I am funding something otherwise would even consider selling it.

It is a 3 round, and I never removed the muzzle break but they are removable. I don't know if I have a thread protector. 24" barrel.

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
