Winchester Model 94 Trails End Takedown

Winchester Model 94 Trails End Takedown

It can quickly be disassembled and reassembled in the field with a simple twist. It comes apart in two compact pieces, the barrel assembly and the stocked receiver assembly, that readily fit in a backpack, or in any mode of transport where storage space can be an issue. It features a soft rubber buttpad, Marble Arms front sight, adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight, steel loading gate, articulated cartridge stop, is drilled and tapped for scope mounts, and the hammer is drilled and tapped for a knurled hammer spur extension. Additionally, the barrel on the .450 Marlin is ported for less recoil and muzzle jump and, in that calibre, comes with a Pachmayr Declarator recoil pad. It is available in three calibres: 30-30 Win., 38-55 Win and.450 Marlin.

Bloodsport Nitefall Broadhead

The new Nitefall Hybrid Design broadhead uses advanced engineering to provide bowhunters and crossbow hunters with a broadhead that flies straight with field point accuracy and cuts deep. They will push through tough tissue and bone no mater your quarry, from deer-sized game to Alaska/Yukon moose. It starts with a chisel-tip ferrule made from 7075 aluminum that fronts two scalpel-sharp, large, triangular 420 stainless steel fixed blades, providing a one-inch cutting diameter. These forward blades are paired with two rear mechanical blades that fly closed without the aid of O-rings or rubber bands. They instantly deploy on impact, adding an additional two inches of cutting surface for a large wound channel and stay locked open avoiding closure during penetration.
