No Longer For Sale

Ballard 1875 Model #5 Pacific Rifle in .45-90 WCF built by Steve Garbe at the factory in Cody, WY. It has a 28 inch heavy octagon barrel with wiping rod. All metal is bone charcoal finish with the traditional checkered metal buttplate. The wood is fancy English walnut with a black walnut finish, just like the original Ballard rifles were built. In addition there is an ebony insert forming a knob on the end of the Pacific lever, no rear sight dovetail, globe front sight, with inserts, that matches the wiping rod thimbles, two extra firing pins, one extra stock bolt screw, a #107 MVA Ballard Long Range sight with extra eyecups, an Axtell #39 Short Hunters tang sight, a Lee Shaver Hadley eyecup, a custom built Merit #3 rear sight disk and hardcase. The rifle is no longer made. There are a few small handling marks. I will sell for $3600, which includes shipping to your FFL.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

Nightforce ATACR Scope Review

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
