Aquila Precision Firearms specializes in hunting and tactical style
rifles. We can build them in practically any configuration to meet
the shooters needs. Most of these rifles will shoot .250 groups or
better at 100 yards with the work described below, proper optics,
correct hand loaded cartridge and the proper skill level. We
guarantee them to shoot .5 MOA.
are a lot of options available for these style rifles in order to
fit them to the shooters needs and preferences. Most of them will
be listed on this page to assist in making the proper choices. Also
there is a checklist at the bottom of the page.
following are item and option that are the anatomy of a true custom
Action and Bolt
start with a new Remington Action and incorporate very meticulous
machining methods to blue print the action and bolt. The Bolt is
bushed to remove any slop so that everything is concentric with the
bore of the barrel to ensure repeatable ignition.
Aquila also utilizes custom actions. Some of them are pricey but
deliver quality results. Since there is no truing work required on
a custom action, sometimes it pays to use one if starting from
scratch. If a custom action is desired, there is a large selection
to choose from. We also carry some in stock and are listed at the
bottom of the page.
have settled with two brands that offer great performance and
reliability - Timney and and Jewel. This is an important option on
any rifle. It doesn’t make the rifle any more accurate; it helps
the shooter, shoot better. It is almost impossible to shoot
accurately with a heavy trigger pull and excess creep. We no longer
adjust the Remington triggers due to liability and quality reasons.
However, the new Mark-X are adjustable snd can be made into a decent
Aquila’s preferred barrel manufacturer is Mike Rock, Hart, Kreiger
and PacNor. Our customers and we have been extremely happy with the
results from these barrels. There are other barrel makers available
that also make great products and we will be happy to use certain
other barrel makers if preferred.
properly fit a barrel to an action is a very meticulous pains taking
job. We developed several operations that have allowed us to
produce consistently accurate rifles and incorporate these into
every rifle we make. There is a huge difference in a gunsmith that
doesn’t understand the dynamics of a gun barrel and machinist that
takes all of the dynamics into consideration when machining and
fitting it to the receiver and chambering. Even the best barrel
will not shoot well if not proper machined and fitted
crown is the last part of the barrel the bullet touches before it
heads down range and it has to be perfect. We machine them so that
they are perfectly concentric with the last few inches of the bore
and the bullet makes full contact all the way around as it leaves
Other barrel options are muzzle brakes and fluting. Muzzle brakes
are a must for some of the larger magnum calibers but may not be
needed for the smaller ones. This is up to the preference of the
shooter. Our brakes reduce the felt recoil up to 50%, this is a
huge option for some of the larger calibers.
Barrel fluting reduces the weight and looks great. It does not
offer greater barrel rigidity as widely touted.
with most of the components of the hunting rifle, a quality stock
must be used in order to produce accuracy and comfort to the
Aquila normally uses H-S Precision, Manners and B&C Medalist stocks.
We also go with other makers that our customers prefer. These
companies offer very high quality products that we can get in short
order in order to stay with our short deliver times.
Aquila can also outfit the rifles with rings, bases, scopes and any
other accessories that are required.
Aquila uses Duracoat and CeraCoat for most applications. We have
found both to be a very versatile and durable finish. We go to
great lengths to ensure every coating job is perfect, from metal
prep to the final spraying. Just bead blasting the metal and
spraying the coating isn’t enough to produce a good-looking finish
that will last.
detailed in our coating section, there are a lot of options, colors,
and solid or camo patterns…. Even pink. Just let us know what is
