                             Thomas Bland Signature Rifle

 

Up until the early part of the 20th century, Thomas Bland & Sons produced quality rifles for the hunting and shooting fraternity. These weapons were considered to be among the finest in the World; but production slowed when the firearms market shifted to shotguns. Thomas and his sons were not slow to pick up on the market trends, and as a result, rifle and pistol production took a back seat, eventually ceasing altogether. The Bland customers who come to our shooting and custom shotgun facility have expressed a keen interest in acquiring rifles of the same quality and workmanship they experience with our shotguns.

What we at Thomas Bland and Sons have been encouraged to do is once again start producing the finest, most accurate, custom hunting and target rifles on the market today. These rifles are built to customer specifications using the finest materials and smith'd by the finest gunsmith in the country and are superior to any rifle found on the market today. We will also produce rifles for select factory ammunition which are guaranteed to shoot sub minute of angle groups, out of the box.

Our nineteenth century rifles were made and regulated to shoot factory ammunition as quality reloading equipment and supplies was not available in the mid twentieth century. Many double rifles would not “regulate” their barrels or lost their accuracy once the original factory ammunition for which they were manufactured was no longer available.

Today, several ammunition makers have created quality hunting and target ammunition in a variety of calibers and bullet weights, these include: Federal Premium, Hornaday Custom, Winchester Supreme, Remington Premier and Black Hills Gold. Our custom rifles are crafted to produce sub minute of angle groups using these brands of quality ammunition. If the customer hand loads his / her ammunition, Blands gunsmith can craft a rifle which will surpass sub minute of angle accuracy.

MATERIALS USED IN THE MANUFACTURE OF OUR RIFLES:

SCOPE:

All Thomas Bland rifles come with a Swarovski Rifle Scope (or a scope and mounts of your choice) in the power range selected by the customer, mounted using Conetrol Mounts and rings or Dave Talley Rings and Bases as standard equipment. The customer can have his / her personal riflescope mounted, or select another make / model for mounting.

 ACTION:

Thomas Bland recommends the Nesika action with Shilen trigger for all series rifles, both hunting and Varmint / Target models, and in all grades. We will however, build to customer specifications using any action or trigger system requested (POR).

 

TRIGGER:

While the Bland Gunsmith uses the Shilen triggers due to their sturdy construction and range of adjustment, we also provide Timney, Canjar or Jewell triggers per customer request.

 

BARREL:

We use Lilja Premium barrels on our product, unless the customer has a specific request. We do this because Lilja produces the highest quality, most consistent product on the market today. These barrels come either fluted or non-fluted, in various profile configurations, lengths, and rates of twist. Unless the customer specifically requests a certain rate of twist, length and taper, the configuration of the delivered barrel and rifle will be determined by the customers discussion with our gunsmith.

 

STOCK:

Our product is designed to be the most rugged, accurate hunting rifle available on the market. To accomplish this, we recommend the use of carbon fiber or blended stocks. The carbon fiber or blended stocks will be delivered in any color, texture, or pattern the customer desires. There are other materials such as laminated wood, metal, or exhibition grade woods which we can use for stock material. We pillar bed each rifle, attach a muzzle brake, recoil pad and sling swivels, as standard features. The Edwards recoil reducer system can be installed in all our rifles, and is recommended for Magnum calibers where the customer does not desire a muzzle brake. Length of Pull adjustment will be made per customer request, and the drop of the stock is handled through adjustment of the height of the scope rings. We also stand ready to work with the customer to create any configuration he /she desires.

                                                                                                               

ADDITIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICES:

Thomas Bland and Sons stands behind our product 100%. We also provide other services the customer may request.
