After months of anticipation, the World Heritage Rifle is ready to take its place in the pantheon of high end custom rifles. We’ve been following the development of this exquisite rifle during its journey from conception to completion and are proud to unveil the finished product. And the very best part is…this functional piece of firearms art can be yours! It will be auctioned Saturday night at the 2015 SCI Convention in Las Vegas!
