This is the "prototype" for our Bad Boy V (5 round capacity) offering based on a mil or comml mauser action .. complementing our Mauser BB IV (comml Mauser 4 round), P14 BB VI (Enfield 6 round), and Steyr BB VIII (eight round) line of semi custom safari rifle kits.
While we occasioinally sight, stock, engrave and/or finish rifles we are NOT a rifle manufacturer and thus we prefer that customers commission their own finished rifles using our kits. The kit always comprises the major metal components, optionally the sights, and sometimes a finished synthetic or semi-finished wood stock. We can however put together a rifle on a customer-supplied action provided it is within the envelope of experience embodied in the Bad Boy range. Our aim is to provide a cost-effective avenue to a custom dangerous game rifle.
