BT500 w/ Huggett Moderator

Scope Not Included

The BT500 started life as a 12-shot Theoben Rapid MK2.  Ben Taylor then rebuilds it to custom specification, adding a high-power regulator and anti-bounce hammer of his custom design to control consistency.  Then, the special Ben Taylor modified Weihrauch barrel is hand selected.  Borrowed from the Theoben S-Type design, the BT500 is fitted with a particle filter for total reliability.  Internally, the hammer and hammer spring are modified for low drag and the porting is non standard.  Then, each rifle is expert tuned by Ben Taylor himself to ensure the highest performance possible.  Once the valving exceeds his satisfaction, he focuses his attention on masterfully tuning the latest Theoben trigger design.  Permanently attached at the workshop is a Huggett moderator designed and built in the UK by Milbro Sport. To say these rifles are quiet is a huge understatement. After passing the final inspections, the rifle is fitted to a custom, Milbro designed stock made of high grade walnut with beautiful checkered panels.  As an accent and signature, the stock has a Milbro logo designed into the bottom of the fore end checkering which adds a touch of subtle elegance to this fine package. To confirm accuracy, we are testing each of these at 55 yards and supplying a test group each rifle.
