The Take-Down lever action rifle with a twist
…A fast handling, heavy hitting 37 inch lever action rifle weighing approximately 6 ½ lbs with a six round magazine and minute-of-angle accuracy. The rifle is chambered in .457 WWG which fires a 350 grain bullet at about 2,300 feet per second. The rifle also fires all lever action .45/70 loads and single feeds a 2.5″ .410 shot shell giving the rifle a wide range of cartridge power making it extremely versatile. The rifle features our recoil control porting and Pachmayr decelerator recoil pad to produce a surprisingly comfortable recoil similar to a 12 guage shotgun.Now imagine this rifle in a 18 ½ take-down configuration for easy transportation in your vehicle, boat, ATV, airplane or in a backpack or scabbard. There’s only one rifle in the world with all these features – Wild West Guns’ CoPilot. The CoPilot topped the list in “7 Favorite Truck Guns” by Petersen’s Hunting.
No other rifle in the world combines such power and portability
Using precision machined parts, a stainless steel action and barrel are converted into a takedown rifle. The action is modified to allow use of the new SAMI approved .457 WWG cartridge, the new magnum version of the old .45/70, while still allowing use of lever action .45/70 loads. The 18.5 inch barrel is ported to reduce recoil and muzzle climb. Our original Ghost Ring Rear Sight and a WWG/XS solid blade front sight with high visibility insert are installed for fast target acquisition. Before reassembling, a reliability tune is performed on the action for feeding, extracting and ejecting including installation of our Bear Proof Ejector, Aluminum Mag Follower and Big Loop Lever. As part of the reliability tune we also install our patent pending Trigger Happy Kit for a crisp, clean 3 pound (approximately) trigger pull. We fit a custom WWG logo laminated stock designed to be weather resistant and rugged which has a Pachmayr Decelerator pad installed to help soak up any leftover recoil. Finally, a full fit, finish, and function reliability test is completed and the gun is test fired before being shipped out. A compact soft carry case is provided with each rifle.
