A few years ago I created a .44mag double rifle in the vision a customer had for hunting black bears and hogs behind dogs. In doing so, you typically find yourself walking long distances, and shots are VERY short. Sometimes so short the bears can leave a mark!
This rifle took the .44mag concept and made it better for his needs. This one is in .480 Ruger, which is launching a 325gr HP/XTP at over 1450fps out of the 16 1/4” barrels. The rifle weighs 5lbs 12oz as pictured, and balances 1/4” behind the hinge. The selective ejectors make quick work of emptying the chambers. It is setup with a peep sight, but has provisions for a red dot. At 40yds it’ll put 4rnds at 3/4” if you do your part.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

To be fair, anything over 6.5 manbun causes your shoulder to ache. This one isn’t as bad as you’d think. Stout 20ga load type recoil.

That is gorgeous! I miss my 480 Ruger Super Redhawk. I would love to have one of the Bisley single actions to go with my 454. Have to ask, how hard does something like that hit the wallet?

Hello,
I do a fair amount of shotgun to rifle conversions in most rimmed calibers. Caliber in mind will dictate the base/donor gun. The most important part is that the donor gun has bushed firing pins. Cost to do a conversion starts at $4500 total plus tax if applicable with a 50% deposit due at beginning, this price doesn’t include the donor gun. My current backlog is around 2yrs.

I apprenticed/worked for Bailey for over three years before starting my own business. Still talk with him multiple times a week.
