Dangerous game deserves a purpose-built rifle system. We designed the SKUHL for ultimate reliability and quick target acquisition in close quarters when shots count. 


Cape Buffalo under 100 yards in the morning and Kudu at 600 after lunch. Or perhaps a moose or caribou opportunity on a brown bear hunt. One rifle does it all.


"Only accurate rifles are interesting." - Townsend Whelen

While accuracy isn't the hallmark of a dangerous game rifle. We set out to build a rifle optimized for close quarters, dangerous game hunting, but also meeting our precision standards - Mission accomplished.


Big bore options in 338 RUM, 375 Ruger and 416 Ruger with matched loads and laser etched turrets results in a rifle system effective from zero to 600+ yards, right out of the box.

NEGATIVE COMB The ClymR stock's negative comb reduces felt recoil while allowing for higher recoil pad positioning. This positions the recoil pad more inline with the barrel, thus reducing muzzle rise. The result is a more forgiving shot with heavy recoiling rounds and quicker follow-ups.  ERGONOMIC GRIP DESIGN The clymR grip is unlike anything the firearms industry has seen. By studying the ergonomics of shooter interaction, and the rifle recoil impulse. The SKUHL grip is designed to fit nearly any hand from large to small and is finely tuned for both firm control in tense situations with large rounds and finesse when long range, precision shots are in order.  TECHNOLOGY MEETS TRADITION

We took our favorite carbon ClymR stock and infused some class. The SKUHL stock features the same advanced carbon fiber structure with CNC machined bedding block, and a layer of flax fiber added into the composite layup. The painstaking process yields a beautiful blend with the performance of carbon, but the look and feel of a traditional wood stock. There's simply nothing like it.

SHORT AND LONG GAME 3 Carefully selected optic choices capable of shots from close to extended distances. With laser etched ballistic turrets and matched ammunition, the traditional close quarters big bore rifle becomes a 600 yard-capable precision instrument.


Traditional dangerous game rifles are notorious for heavy recoil. We're on a mission to change that! While the SKUHL Still packs a healthy punch, the Gunwerks radial brake provides significant recoil reduction. The brake, paired with optimal stock geometry and healthy recoil pad make the SKUHL much more enjoyable to shoot. A rifle that gets more practice, is almost always employed better when it counts!

LASER ENGRAVING A first for Gunwerks, we've employed a laser engraved buffalo and bear skull motif as an homage to the game it's made to pursue. The action body, barrel shank, muzzle and bolt shroud all bear these designs. BATTLE WORN CERAKOTE

A unique battle-worn Tungsten Cerakote finish rounds out the design to mimic the look of your granddad's trusty Rigby. But don't be fooled. The stainless steel composition and baked ceramic finish render this tool and work of art practically impervious to the elements.
