"Hello All,

Most of you have probably never seen these rare Dangerous Animals before. Well, they have infiltrated the suburbs here in Wisconsin. It is believed they mutated by drinking the discharge water from one of our Nuclear Power Plants. Subsequent in-breeding has further altered their ravenous behavior to the point that unprovoked attacks on animals and people have become an all to often serious occurrence.

.
.
.

Here are a few pictures of various mutations of the vicious WISCONSIN KILLER RABBIT.

I have taken it upon myself to help combat these satanic creatures.

As you know, a Double Rifle is designed for that quick second shot in case the dangerous animal charges. Such is the case here. If the first shot fails to stop a charge, the second shot is quick to finish the job. Although I have a battery of double rifles to choose from, ranging in calibers from 7x65R, up-to 700 NE, none of them really fit the bill for the task at hand, namely hunting these Dangerous Animals.

I needed a very special Double Rifle. It had to be in a caliber that was quiet for use in populated suburban areas, and it had to be fast-handling for the quick and nimble game to be hunted. It also had to be light weight to carry - in case a rapid run-away departure was required to retreat from a charging pack of the killers.

So .... I contacted Aaron Little to build me a Special Double Rifle of my design. It would be used exclusively to Hunt-Down and Kill these Mutated WISCONSIN KILLER RABBITS. You may recall that Aaron built my custom 700NE back in 2016.

As he had done for me in the past, Aaron came through with a wonderful rifle specifically designed for the upcoming hunt of these Vicious Devils. The workmanship is absolutely Flaw-Less.

Here are the specifications:

Make: A.M. Little Bespoke Custom Armsco Box-Lock
Caliber: 25 acp
Action: Engraved Scalloped Boxlock w/ Extractors
Barrels: Monoblock 23-1/2" Walther Lother
Rear Sight: 2 Leaf Express Rear Sight - 1 Standing, 1 Folding on Raised Quarter Rib
Front Sight: Raised Ramp with Gold Bead and Flip-up Ivory Night Sight
Stock: Checkered Straight Grip AA Fancy Turkish Walnut w/ checkered Butt Plate
Forend: Checkered AA Fancy Turkish Walnut w/ Deeley Release
LOP: 14-5/8"
Weight: 6 pounds 11 ounces - 6 pounds 11.1 ounce loaded
Safety: Non-Automatic

Muzzle Energy: 90 ft/lbs
Recoil Energy: 1/10 ft/lbs

Regulation: 30 yards

Regulation was tested with 3 kinds of Factory Ammo. Future hand-loads are sure to improve performance.

Never before has the World seen a center-fire Double Rifle in such a diminutive caliber as the 25acp. As a side note, this is a true ONE-OF-KIND. Once all the WISCONSIN KILLER RABBITS have been eradicated, I'm sure to have a lot of fun shooting this one along side my 700NE. Its great to have the BIGGEST and the SMALLEST Double Rifle in my collection. I now have a Double Rifle in a really big center-fire caliber, and one in a really small center-fire caliber. So, now I'm ready for anything on the planet.

Comparing the ballistics of these two extreme double rifles shows following:

Weight:
700NE = 18 lbs 10 oz
25acp = 6 lbs 11 oz

Bullet Weight:
700NE = 1000 gr
25acp = 50 gr

Bullet Velocity:
700NE = 2000 ft/sec
25acp = 890 ft/sec

Recoil Energy:
700NE = 150 ft/lb
25acp = 1/10 ft/lb

Muzzle Energy:
700NE = 8,900 ft/lbs
25acp = 90 ft/lbs

.
.
.

By the Way ...... The rifle performed flawlessly ..

Cool. If I had the $ might want one for such in the 17 or 22 Hornet.

Huglu uses some beautiful wood on their upper end guns. Not sure if they still do it but at one time they used only old growth (200+ year old Turkish Walnut) for their stocks.

Sort of, this was a shotgun to rifle conversion. This gun started life as a .410.

Hey Aaron!

I saw this when Buckstix posted in on AR; I remember when you were working on his .700. While I wouldn't have been interested in helping you regulate that one, this would have been a joy!

And in creating this, you two have (in my opinion) ALMOST found a worthwhile use for the .25 ACP!

Over that length of barrel I am surprised that there is not enough friction to bring the bullet to a complete stop in the barrel.

Hello All,

Believe me ... these creatures really are dangerous ....

[Linked Image] [Linked Image]


I just joined this forum today so I could post about my new aquisition ... well .. I see someone beat me to it ....

You can't believe how much fun it is to shoot this little double ... It's a HOOT ! ! Here's the latest test results.

[Linked Image]

In 2016 Aaron built my 700NE. Its a wonderfull cannon and a joy to shoot.

[Linked Image]

It took 5 years, but in 2020 I finally shot a Wisconsin Whitetail Deer with it. Likely the "only" Wisconsin Whitetail Deer ever shot with a 700NE.

[Linked Image]

I have a set of 25acp Corbin Swage dies coming to make custom hunting bullets for this diminutive double rifle...
....and next year I intend to shoot a deer with this rifle.. Likely will be the "only" Wisconsin Whitetail Deer to be shot with a 25acp. roflmao.
.

I believe him. I keep flashing back to this documentary I saw about the search for the Holy Grail. This line from Tim really stuck with me.

Well he’s got huge sharp, eh, he can leap about,... look at the bones!

Thanks to all for the reply.

It should do well on any number of small game animals here in Wisconsin.
