Magnus Features

 

With Ultra Long Range capabilities, the Magnus adds control with a stock of substantial proportions. A wider forend provides more stability on bags and substantial surface for any bipod mount. The vertical grip and butt stock design create a more comfortable platform for prone shooting with better check weld and proper finger positioning for correct trigger pull. You will also notice a heavier barrel with a muzzle diameter of 0.850 inches. With a heavier stock fill, the increased barrel weight does not affect the proper balance of the firearm, but merely adds to the 12 lb overall weight. This rifle is rock solid.

The Magnus is built on the extended version of our Gunwerks LR-1000 action that has been modified to accept a Wyatt magazine box. This allows a greater overall loaded length for our cartridges—maximizing case capacity and muzzle velocity. In the Magnus, we chamber the 338 Edge wildcat based on the Ultra Mag case. This fires the heaviest 338 bullets just under 2900 fps. The 300 Remington Ultra Mag and new Gunwerks 7mm LRM are optional.

Like all Gunwerks Shooting Systems, the Magnus has a G7 rifle scope by Nightforce pre-installed. On the Magnus, we use a custom fitted 20 MOA picatinny base, pinned to the action, with matching rings. The combination has been test fired for accuracy, with the barrel properly broken in to stabilize muzzle velocity. Gunwerks separates itself from other rifle manufacturers by test firing each rifle on our 1000 yard range. A true ballistic profile is developed to match the rifle barrel and ammunition, and that information is used to calibrate a custom Ballistic Turret that indicates the drop correction in yards. Now you simply range the target, and dial the distance on the turret.

Add the optional Long Range Package to your Magnus to have a G7 rifle scope by Nightforce pre-installed. On the Magnus, we use a custom fitted 20 MOA picatinny base, pinned to the action, with matching rings. .  This is the rifle scope and service that turns your rifle into a complete Gunwerks Shooting System   The preferred rifle scope is the new G7 5.5-22X50 model by Nightforce with the G7 reticle. Like Gunwerks rifles, this scope has set the industry standard for performance, including individual testing and quality control.
