Welcome to Action Gun Works

Makers of accurate long range benchrest rifles and accessory's. We build custom rifles in all calibers, but our specialty is custom 50 BMG rifles for benchrest, tactical, and hunting applications. We also specialize in custom 600 yard benchrest rifles, and custom 1000 yard benchrest rifles. We are the undisputed leader in the custom 50 BMG rifle market, and have been making custom 50 BMG rifles for as long or longer than anyone else. It is rare not to see stats from an FCSA 50 BMG match that one of our rifles is not in the top five finishers. In 600 and 1000 yard benchrest we are proud of the amount of match winning rifles we have produced and have been excited at the many records set using rifles we have built. We hope we can be your first choice for your custom long range rifle needs. Thanks for checking out our site.


(9-16-2014) For over 30 years my shop has been located in a leased commercial building in Sparks Nevada. For some time now I have been planning to make the move to a building I actually own, so later this year I will be building my new shop on our property in Reno, Nevada. We do not anticipate completing the move and changing addresses until late November or December, but as this current address will no longer be a good shipping address at that time, it is best to call us to make sure before shipping your parts to us from now until we are finished moving and the new address is posted on our Contact Us page.


(1-2-2014) What a difference a year makes. 2013 has come and gone and it is quite different around Action Gun Works shop than it was a year or two ago. 18 months ago we had almost a 2 year backlog of work, this year we are back to a more normal, and much more reasonable 6-8 weeks backlog. I think this is partially due to the fact that for about two years we were abnormally busy, but additionally, I think the economic slowing finally caught up to our business too.

Rear Rests

Also in the news around here, as many of you know, it has been some time since we made a new batch of rear rests. This was due to two reasons, first, we were simply to busy with other work to do it. Also, the price of the materials used has skyrocketed in the last few years. If we had to order new materials to make rests at this time the price would have to be more than doubled to make up for the materials costs. Luckily, we were recently able to secure some of the materials for making a batch of rests at a deep discount. So while the price will have to be increased a bit, it will not have to be anywhere near double the old price.

With that in mind, we will be starting a new batch of rests soon which will be available later this year. So, if you would like to have one of these rests, call us or send us your contact information at our Contact Us page to get put on the list. Note that even if you requested to be put on our waiting list before, please send us a new request now to avoid missing out on this batch.
