The MEGA BEAST
|Since 1987 we have been building the perfect dangerous game rifle in 470 Nitro and 500 Nitro. It was a plain jane working gun with no deluxe features. That was our BEAST rifle. Thru the years we have had folks ask for more of a special rifle, but still in 470 Nitro and 500 Nitro. That is our MEGA BEAST.|
The new MEGA BEAST is built on your Ruger #1 base gun and the base gun can be in any caliber as all that changes. We add a new heavy duty 20 inch barrel and our own patented muzzle brake, add front and rear sights and engrave the sideplate with scenes of dangerous game. The deluxe version has solid sterling silver dangerous game positioned to the sideplates along with engraving while the field grade has engraved animals. We add gold or silver bands to the barrel and the gun is then high polished and has our deluxe Black Chromex finish done to it. We finish the stock in an ebony finish and add a decelerator butt pad to it for more comfortable shooting. The MEGA BEAST comes with express sights and a white or gold bead front barrel band sight. The MEGA BEAST also has our loaded round indicator.
The 470 Nitro and 500 Nitro are true classic short range dangerous game cartridges. Each one was designed to handle dangerous game in Africa. A normal dangerous game rifle, like the 458 Winchester Magnum or the 460 Weatherby Magnum are great guns but heavy on the recoil. With the two Nitro calibers we give you the power but do so with less than half the recoil. Whether you choose the 470 Nitro or the 500 Nitro MEGA BEAST, you will have all it takes to put down the largest most dangerous game on this planet. The Mega Beast is also available in 470 Nitro and 500 Nitro with shorter or longer barrels and other options. The MEGA BEAST also comes in stainless steel with all the same features and at no additional price.
