NEW Theoben on the Rack

 The NEW THEOBEN TAYLORED BT500 w/ Huggett Moderator has arrived at the Shop.

The BT500 started life as a 12-shot Theoben Rapid MK2.  Ben Taylor then rebuilds it to custom specification, adding a high-power regulator and anti-bounce hammer of his custom design to control consistency.  The Special Ben Taylor modified Weihrauch barrel is hand selected.  Borrowed from the Theoben S-Type design.  Internally, the hammer and hammer spring are modified for low drag and the porting is non standard. Each rifle is expert tuned by Ben Taylor himself to ensure the highest performance possible.  Once the valving exceeds his satisfaction, he focuses his attention on masterfully tuning the latest Theoben trigger design. 

  To say these rifles are quiet is a huge understatement. After passing the final inspections, the rifle is fitted to a custom, Milbro designed stock made of high grade walnut with beautiful checkered panels.  As an accent and signature, the stock has a Milbro logo designed into the bottom of the fore end checkering which adds a touch of subtle elegance to this fine package.

 A test target at 55 yards will be included with each of these rifles.

Permanently attached at the workshop is a Huggett moderator designed and built in the UK by Milbro Sport.
