The Magnus

The new Magnus builds on ten years of building long range shooting systems. It is NOT an all around gun. It IS the most impressive shooting you will experience.

The secret is in the design. When we sketched out the concept of the Magnus, we wanted to build the perfect gun for long range shooting. Specifically, we wanted a stock design that fit the ergonomics of prone and bench shooting. The grip is vertical, the fore end wide and stable, and the toe line radically flat. It retains the signature Gunwerks negative comb. The result is straight tracking, low muzzle lift, and fast target re-engagement. It so different, its startling.

We’ve designed it to do a handful of things very, very well - It does.

The System

Putting a six inch group on the bullseye at 1200 yards is no easy task. Even if the shooter does his part, the equipment has to be perfect. The rifle has to be capable of precision groups. The scope has to be mounted correctly with a system that won’t move. The scope needs to adjust accurately, and the ballistic parameters of bullet BC and muzzle velocity determined by actual long range shooting. A configured Magnus from Gunwerks is ready to go, out of the box.

The Design

The Magnus was designed for the long range shooter. Several design factors influence the way a rifle behaves under recoil, our goal was to minimize muzzle movement for fast follow ups and shooter self spotting. Radical function calls for radical design, and the Magnus stock, barrel contour, and muzzle break all contribute to the rifle's unique handling characteristics.

The Shot

Long Range Hunting is a never ending cycle of education, practice, and development. There is no limit or boundary, but as we pass 1000 yards, more distance requires exponentially more skill. The equipment is no exception. The Magnus can be set up for the backpack hunt, or in its heaviest configuration, the perfect Sendero rifle or tactical competition platform.

Ballistic Turret

Just Dial and Shoot. Its the easiest way to shoot long range--and we pioneered and perfected the technology. Each turret is customized to your rifle's exact ballistics after we shoot it out to 1000 yards!

GLR Action

We’ve redesigned the cocking, closing, and extraction cams in the action to provide a perfect cartridge feeding and ejection cycle. In fact, we added a second cocking cam to balance the load and offer the lightest and smoothest bolt lift possible.

The Magnus Stock

Straight Lines, Straight Recoil, and Straight Shooting. Break away from the classic Mcmillan A series and copies, and try a shooting experience that is truly revolutionary.

Bedding Chassis

The other guys are still using plastic to fix machining errors. We don’t bed our rifles. Our bedding chassis is machined to precisely secure the action in a V rail configuration, and when combined with the integral recoil lug on the GLR action it creates the most stable platform available.

Bottom Metal

We didn’t just make another bottom metal. The entire concept was redesigned. The interlocking floorplate, wide lever and leaf spring create the most positive retention possible. Our bottom metal has integral pillars for perfect fitment to the bedding chassis.

LR Ammunition

The Magnus is intended to be the perfect platform for Ultra Long Range. Our magazine box allows a loaded cartridge length of 3.80 inches. The Ultra Mag cartridges or the massive 338 Lapua loaded with the longest VLD bullets, easily fit with room to spare.

CNC Machining allows perfect fit between products. For example, we have over 36,000 different rifle configurations, each potentially requiring a unique inletting program for the rifle stock. Our system builds a custom program for each inlet, some with over 60,000 lines of CNC code!

One Of The Finest Systems I've Ever Used

"The Gunwerks shooting platform is one of the finest systems I've ever used. It has made me confident that when presented the golden opportunity on big hunts that I can make the shot count. I started shooting the Magnus this year in 6.5x284 Norma and I am blown away by the performance, the craftsmanship and beauty of the rifle. I am a Gunwerks customer for life!"

My New Magnus

Just got my new Magnus rifle in 6.5/284 and it is awesome! It looks good, stock fits me perfect and it shoots good too. I checked zero at 500 yds. adjusted elevation 1/2 MOA and shot 850 yds. with no problem. This is my fourth Gunwerks rifle so all of this was no surprise.

Incredible Kill Shots

How high should I hold over for longer range shots? I have owned many hunting rifles though out my hunting career that all suffered that same issue. After attending the long range shooting school you really get to see all the innovation put into the Gunwerks system that make it so simple to use. I have the 300RUM Magnus and have made some incredible kills shots up to 900 yards. When I had the basics of set up, ranging and windage shooting at long range became a simple task. My best kill was made at 890 yards on a Red Hartebeest. Gunwerks gets a 5 star rating for being that simple.

Gunwerks Junkie

I attended the Gunwerks Level One class and was amazed with the level of training, quality of instruction and knowledge gained from the class plus the use of Gunwerks 6.5 Creedmoor rifles in the range training.

At the completion of our class both my son and I immediately ordered the new Magnus in 6.5x284. I received my rifle on Wednesday and was at the range three days later. Added a new 6.5 profile in my BR2 from the supplied ballistic data. Checked zero at 200 yards w/ less than a MOA adjustment then moved out hitting targets on the 600 yard range all within less than one box of shells- Amazing!! Along w/ some more practice, I am confident this rifle will do well at 1,000 yards. I am looking forward to shooting the new Magnus next month at my up coming Level Two class.

GREAT job to everyone at Gunwerks for a professional job well done from the point of sale, delivery, quality of staff to the outstanding finished product. I am totally impressed and proud to own the new Magnus, I will highly recommend it to others. Also thank you Gunwerks for the constant dedication, passion and everything you guys do everyday to educate and promote the art of our long range shooting sport.
