It's called the Alaskan CoPilot...Website


"We take a factory-made Marlin 1895 and completely dissemble it. Using precision machined parts, the rifle is converted to a takedown. We cut the barrel, port it to reduce recoil, and recrown it at 16-1/2, 18 or 20 inches in either .45 or .50 caliber.
The front sight is remounted using a fiber optic front bead for high visibility and our original Ghost Ring Sight is installed.
Before reassembling, a reliability tune is performed on the action for feeding, extracting and ejecting.
Our patent pending Trigger Happy Kit is installed for a crisp clean 3 pound trigger pull. The action is modified to allow use of the new .457 Wild West Magnum while still allowing use of standard 45-70 loads, or is set up for the big .50 Alaskan. We install a Pachmayr Decelerator pad to help with recoil and Parkerize the rifle. A 21"x9"x2" soft carry-case is provided with each package."

I always wanted a TakeDown rifle... But 3 grand... come on... for that kind of money I can buy a Nemesis Arms Vanquish, there $4,500 BTW



I hope the gun makers read this post because Lots of people like me would love a good high quality Takedown Rifle, something that can live in my backpack 99% of the time, but when needed can be easily assembled and put into action quickly... without having to take out a second mortgage to get one.

Ah but it's nice to dream... Going to have to put this one on my list of things to buy...after I win the power ball...

Mommy, can I have one...please, Please, Pretty PLEASE!

I want one too!
Small enough to tote and good enough to get the job done.

I'm almost afraid to show my husband though, because if one did ever make it in the house, I might have to fight him for it. Haha, but he's got his own toys already.

Thank you for showing us this!

They do not "dissemble" a Marlin. They might disassemble one, but to dissemble one would be... difficult. I am not sure how one dissembles any kind of rifle to be quite honest, but it would be trickier than disassembling it, which would actually be a helpful thing to do, if their intention is to modify the living hell out of it, and make it throw cannon balls (which appears to be the affect they are after).

And am I concerned for anyone who would purchase a firearm from an engineer who cannot spell disassemble? You are damned right I am!

Knowing you have a mini cannon ball when the bear is staring down you and the kids is a very good feeling.

As it stands now a .410 slug is what I have. I'm sure I will never see one of these, but we can dream right?

Oh, I am sure the weapon performs admirably. But they really need to work on their basic spelling and grammar on their website!

To be honest, it does look like a bit of a mean bugger of a firearm. It looks like the sort of thing you expect to see someone from the television series Firefly pick up when the crap hits the fan. From the numbers being bandied about on the website, and the fact that it can be broken down to fit into a small case or back pack, I would say that it will be a hit with those who like loud noises, sore shoulders, and decapitating whatever they are shooting at using only the pressure exerted by the passage of a bullet through brain matter.

I really cannot get over the idea of "dissembling" a firearm though...

"Its not a firearm, it is merely a tool for the rapid projection of lead in a direction chosen by the operator."
"It is not a firearm, it is just a lead redistribution mechanism which looks like a firearm."

I art a high school grad-u-ate and can't speel but I can build a website!

I'm not one say anything... I'm more than a little dyslexic and it really comes out when I'm in a hurry or excited.

Is it colur or color?
But hey this is America... we don't speak no proper English here bouts, we all speak Merican... with "Ye-all" used as a Present Progressive Tense for Current Action and a Possessive Pronoun at the same time!

Couple months back the wife and I took the girls to Dutch Johns to go fishing.
that's way up in the NW corner of Utah BTW.

when we were breaking down camp my wife spotted a Grizzly sow with a cub, waiting for us to leave so she could come in and check for left overs...

Man, nothing in the world is more dangerous than a momma bear with a cub.... And we never thought to see a big Griz that far south either...

Now that is one sweet rifle, I would love to use it for hunting,

But for that price I could have a dozen SKS's or a weatherby.

The owner of that store is a real piece of work. I'll never shop there just because of the attitude he's given friends of mine.

well it is a custom job after all.

But I'd really like to see Marlin or Winchester even Rossi mass produce a Takedown riffle like this.
I bet they'd sell a lot of them.

I mean a SS Marlin in 45-70 MSRP is just over $600... if they could make a Takedown version for...under $800, I'd buy one...

3 grand is more a pipe dream.

Totally agree! Rossi makes some really sweet rifles and this looks to be right up their alley!

LOL... We have a "gun store commando" here in Colorado too.

whatever it is you've ever done... he's done better, faster, more often and with style... Don't believe me, ask him, he'll tell ya all about it. and we young bucks, (anyone under 50) don't know diddly squat!

Little wonder no one just hangs out in his store, we just get what we need and go...

Well, it's not just him ... his staff is also really unfriendly and unhelpful. There are TON of other gun stores that have better customer service and prices than that guy.

The owner has also recently been in the news for some hunting violations:


The colorful star of the Alaska reality television show “Wild West Alaska," which promotes an Anchorage gun shop and the 49th-state's huntin'-fishin'-goldmining lifestyle, today finds himself in trouble with state wildlife authorities with their own reality TV show to promote -- "Alaska State Troopers.''

Wild West Guns owner Jim V. West has been charged with 17 hunting violations, including trespassing on Alaska Native lands while guiding a black bear hunt. His attorney has questioned whether troopers might have busted him to boost their TV ratings.

It raises he blood pressure a touch doesn't it?
I prefer to be able to leave the area, but you just never know what they are going to do. Mama's are especially unpredictable. Those cubs are so curious that many times they will bring mama to you just out of that curiosity.

My sons first rifle was a Rossi Triple Threat single shot take down with three interchangeable barrels, 22, 243 and 20 gauge shotgun, it has been quite the meat stick.

As for that shop in Anchorage, that guy sounds like a real loser!

I know some guys that are *really* into guns -- and they won't shop there.

Sadly, with Cabella's and Bass Pro now up here the little guys are feeling the squeeze. Most military guys on deployment up here don't know about the smaller Mom & Pop gun stores and just head to the familiar named big box stores.
