McMillan Donates African Hunting Rifle to Dallas Safari Club
Phoenix, Arizona (June 28, 2010) – McMillan is donating its Heritage rifle, an African hunting rifle from its Custom Collection, to Dallas Safari Club (DSC) for its annual fundraising event. The rifle will be auctioned off during DSC’s convention January 6-9, 2011. DSC is an international organization conserving wildlife and wilderness lands, educating youth and the general public, and promoting and protecting the rights and interests of hunters worldwide. The money raised will go to expand DSC’s grant programs that benefit conservation and education initiatives around the world.
McMillan’s Heritage rifle is built rugged to handle dangerous game hunting in extreme circumstances. The Heritage comes with McMillan’s fiberglass stock specifically designed to help absorb and slow down the recoil impulse. The drop belly fiberglass stock holds 4 rounds and is impervious to temperature and humidity changes. The stock is fully hand bedded and includes a 1” Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad, and a 14” length of pull. The rifle is chambered in .416 Remington. It is drilled and tapped for scope. Talley bases are included as standard. The 24″ match grade barrel gives fast handling and quick pointing, while retaining maximum velocity. This special edition Heritage rifle uses the McMillan G30 Control Round Feed action for positive feeding and extraction.
The retail value of the donated Heritage rifle is $4,880.
According to Kelly McMillan, president of McMillan, “We are proud to support Dallas Safari Club in their fundraising event to help continue and expand their great work worldwide.”
The Heritage is part of McMillan’s Custom Collection, a line of custom hunting rifles based on the premise that superior technology builds a superior rifle. The Custom Collection is comprised of seven different rifle models. The foundation for each rifle is the McMillan G30 action and McMillan’s fiberglass stock technology. Only the finest match grade barrels, triggers, custom grade hardware, and accessories are used in the collection.
