SSK has manufactured custom rifles for many years in calibers ranging from mouse guns to elephant stoppers. Each custom rifle whether it is a semi-auto, single shot or bolt gun becomes the proud culmination of the ideas of the customer. B & M Rifles are good examples. Michael did the cartridge design and planned how he wanted his rifle to be made. SSK put it together. Michael did the cartridge—rifle testing and became so enthused he designed an entire line of cartridges and rifles dedicated to providing the customer with a hunting rifle “as good as it gets”. SSK makes them all and anxiously awaits Michael’s next design.

In designing a custom rifle for yourself it is a good idea to get a rough idea of what you want to end up with. At the same time figure a maximum budget you are comfortable with and E mail SSK a preliminary inquiry. After that it is telephone time to discuss if your ideas can be transformed into that dream rifle within your budget constraints. SSK does not at this time offer “package” deals of standardized units we keep in stock. We tried that and found it just didn’t work for us. We are a small company and prefer to give individual personal service to our customers.
For Custom rifles section----- Built on a McMillan action this 416 Barrett is set up for interchangeable barrels. In 416 recoils less than a 243; in 50 BMG its is bit more but anyone could shoot it comfortably. In 14.5 MM it isn’t bad; but an attention getter.
