Wesson Long Range

Precision Beyond the Bench

The action on this particular rifle is based on the original Wesson Long Range no.1.  It was made for a client experienced in long range shooting, who plans to target shoot and hunt elk in Montana with it.  This 45/70 has a 30 inch half-round-half-octagon barrel with a wedding band.   We designed a medium weight barrel per customer request.  The stock was made to fit, featuring a straight comb with tow-out.  The bottom metal, internal parts, and screws are nitre blued.  Al Springer of Moore, MT color cased hardened the action and slow-rust blued the barrel.  The American black walnut was finished with McLaughlin’s Old World stock oil.  Gunmaker, John McLaughlin of Helena, MT.
