A very specail rifle made by the ledgendary Gun smith Les Bauska:
Rifles of this quality and custom attention are hard to find and very expensive. This is not a stock Dakota in .375
but a unique rifle with beautiful dark Turkish Walnut Stock, Nicley engraved,
Famous for his barrels Les Bauska built this gun upon the BBK-02 action Known and for its durabilityone of the strongest Magum actions ever built .
Bauska was very well known for his Barrels and there accuracy. This is an example of one that shoots 1/2 groups at 100 yards with Barnes Triple X 300 grain
Guns like this are very rare, expensive and well worth it. It's in a league of it's own like Rigby and Holalnad and Holland of England.
Bauska was a great American Gun maker
This is from a press release about the Actions:
Olympic Arms purchased the tooling to produce these actions from a Montana resident named Jack Bauska back in the late 1980's. The actions are large frame Mauser style actions for Safari size cartridges like the 375 H&H and larger. With a box magazine length of 3.85" and a collar size to match, these actions were some of the strongest bolt action receivers ever made (investment cast), and could handle anything up to and including the .505 Gibbs cartridge.
Last manufactured in 2002 with an upgraded 3 position Winchester style safety and Timney triggers, the ultramag actions, still often referred to as the Bauska, or BBK action by many, were highly sought after actions for custom rifle manufacturers around the world. Standing orders existed for the Gibbs Rifle Company as well as the smashingly famous Holland & Holland Rifle Company.
Lester Osborn Bauska passed away on 11th November 2011, leaving behind him a legacy of some of the best rifle barrels, and some of the nicest custom rifles you could buy. Les had spent some time working for John Buhmiller who was a famed gunsmith and African hunter with a penchant for rattlesnakes. John Buhmiller had a reputation for using rattlesnakes to guard his firearms workshop instead of guard dogs. This was probably not all that efficient in that he had to go and find and contain each of his guard rattlesnakes each morning before his workers could begin their days work. But no doubt it proved to be an excellent deterrent to would be thieves.
The rifles that emanate from Kalispell and the surrounding areas in Montana are known for producing some of the most superb examples of American craftsmanship extant. They are rifles made by hunters and shooters who know what is needed in a hunting rifle and have a commitment to building rifles that are reliable, accurate, and at the top of their class.
