The American West was built upon the backs of men and women venturing into the frontier to pursue dreams of fame, fortune and a better life. Through the years this adventurous spirit has become a part of the American tradition embodied by firearms like the Montana Model 1999. Montana Rifle Company created the American Legends Rifle for the avid hunters who rustle through the mountains, seek their quarry in the field and share the common bond of appreciation for a handsome hunting rifle. Perfect for outdoorsmen seeking big game adventures, this bolt action rifle is chambered in the ever-popular .300 Win Mag and provides consistent, reliable performance through an artfully executed design.
Each rifle action is custom bedded into a select American Black Walnut XX Grade stock with a raised cheek piece and black forearm tip and grip cap. The stock is dressed with beautiful deep checkering and holds a wrap around front pattern. It is finished with the popular one-inch Pachmayr Decelerator pad for comfortable shoot-ability, and the minimal weight makes this rifle easy to pack. Each rifle has received a classic matte blued finish for protection against the elements and features laser engraving of the Friends of NRA logo and “Gun of the Year 2016” text in gold Cerakote on the floor plate. This never-before offered rifle also features custom NRA serialization with numbers NRA16-0001 through NRA16-1150. The Gun of the Year is limited to 1,150 units and available exclusively at Friends of NRA events. Made in the USA!
