"Best New Rifle 2009"
E.R. Shaw's Mk. VII poses for the July 2009 issue of Field & Stream, after being voted "Best New Rifle 2009."Read the article on FieldandStream.com
I've seen many rifles come and go, but the ones that have come along in the past 10 years are a quantum leap past everything else.
You can still get a wood stock, but you also have a choice of synthetic stocks that are immune to anything short of a nuclear blast. Triggers are now terrific and owner adjustable. Over-the-counter big-game rifles now can outshoot the finest custom rifles of 20 years ago and equal most custom guns made today. Bluing is slowly being replaced by polymers that are everything-proof and eternal.
More changes are in store so hang on to your hat. –D.E.P.
Forget the eye-popping accuracy and strange-looking spiral-flute barrels. What gets the Mk. VII on this list is the fact that it represents the way rifles will be made in the future. Rather than having a standard line of models, Shaw offers the buyer 10,000 combinations of caliber, barrel dimensions, stock, right-or-left-hand, and on and on. The one I have is a minute-of-angle-gun, or a little better, and others I know of shoot just as well. For the price of a factory rifle, you get to design something that is yours and yours alone.
