A Legendary Blend
For decades Mark Bansner handcrafted custom hunting rifles for the most extreme climates, with much success. Tucked away in corners of the shop are volumes of testimonials containing photos and letters sent from the farthest reaches of the world attesting to the quality of his rifles. Held to the quality expected of a master gun maker, these rifles were bedded on High Tech Specialties synthetic stocks, which provide the utmost durability whether used in the jungle of Cameroon or the sub-zero Arctic. Available in a multitude of variations, these lightweight, tactile stocks were paired with thousands of quality rifle actions, but none as exemplary as the 704 rifle action. Developed by Ed Brown, this rifle action was referred to by Guns & Ammo magazine as “the most significant advance in bolt action rifle technology in over 100 years.” Defunct for several years, the 704 was resurrected by Legendary Arms Works to be the crowning piece of its new line of production rifles.
These three parts, the Maker, the Stock and the Action, coalesce to create Legendary Arms Works, a new standard by which all others will be judged.Read more about our "Legendary" Story
