For 2017 – Our Enhanced Specialty Rifle For The Huntress

The Artemis Custom Rifle
For The Goddess Of The Hunt

Designed By Women For Women

For The Huntress/Sportswoman – the Artemis Custom Hunting Rifle represents an offering unique to Kilimanjaro Rifles for a market unfairly ignored since the time of its namesake. Designed by women for women, it features a classic profile stock geometry with toe-out and special cast in the butt-stock to move the recoil pad away from critical areas of the feminine anatomy. An open grip is moved forward to correctly position smaller hands for accurate trigger positioning. Other feminine attributes are the trim, slim mountain rifle shape designed to provide a quick-handling rifle where weight and bulk are kept to minimum. Drop at heel typically intersects the mid-point of the bore. Suitable for all rifle calibers and introduces a unique design for smaller shoulders. The Artemis also provides an opportunity to those hunters/sportsmen who wish to share their love of hunting/shooting with their wife, significant other or daughter.

The Artemis Custom Rifle features:

Stealth Lamination:

Our proprietary Stealth Lamination provides greater strength and stability while preserving the full figure, grain and beauty of the wood. It provides all the benefits of a synthetic stock but with the beauty and superior feel of highly figured real wood. You may also choose an un-laminated solid wood stock if you prefer.

AAA Grade American Walnut Stock:

Choose your wood blank from our selection of the finest AAA grade American Walnut. Your stock is laminated and then carved and inlet using our new precision equipment. As with all of Kilimanjaro's rifles, however, the final shaping and fitting is still done by hand to your specifications by our talented stock shapers. As an option, you may select an upgrade to any of our Special Select Circassian Walnut, Exhibition or Premier wood blanks shown on our Wood Blanks page.

Deluxe Wrap-Around Checkering:

Artemis Custom Hunting Rifle includes our deluxe, fine-line wrap-around checkering—all done by hand—as standard. Our trademark Diamond Fleur Wrap-Around Checkering and other checkering patterns are available as options.

Museum Grade Wood Finish:

Our Museum Grade wood finish is the finest and most beautiful in the industry, and is designed specifically for rugged field use. This finest finish procedure, achieved during our extensive research and development efforts, requires no less than two months of effort from start to finish. You may specify high lustre, moderate lustre or satin finish.

Exact Wood To Metal Fit:

Our fine Circassian and American Walnut stocks are precisely fitted to and mated with the action and barrel by hand in this most time consuming step of the production process, and is key to meeting our stringent accuracy standards.


Your choice of the Kimber 84M, Kimber 84L, Kimber 8400, Winchester Model 70 Long or the Winchester Model 70 Short is standard. All of these feature full controlled round feed, massive claw extraction, three-position shroud wing safety, and a 2-piece Winchester style hunting trigger. The Kilimanjaro improved versions of the Sako 85, Dakota 76, and Granite Mountain actions are all available as options. Indeed, the Artemis Custom Rifle can be built on your choice of any commercially available or customer provided action as an option. With the Winchester, Dakota and Granite Mountain actions, the Artemis Custom Rifle can be crafted in either right or left hand versions.


Virtually any cartridge chambering is possible, including most wild-cats, from 22-250 to 505 Gibbs and all stops in between. Cartridge selection may affect the best choice of action.


A match grade stainless steel barrel to your specification of length, contour, twist and crown is included from your choice of barrel makers. We utilize only the highest grade of barrels from the most quality conscious barrel makers like Pac Nor, Douglas, Shilen, Lilja and Krieger, but every barrel goes through our own independent testing for verification of accuracy and consistency.

Ceramic Metal Coating:

Kilimanjaro Rifles’ premium ceramic metal coating is standard in your choice of colors, providing excellent metal and corrosion protection in an elegant non-glare finish for field use. Other metal finishes are available on request, including color-case hardening, bluing, and bead blast finishes.

Quality Assurance & Testing:

Rigorous quality assurance throughout the production process is provided with multiple pre-final and final tests. Full barrel conditioning (break-in) and accuracy testing with test target provided are standard.

Delivery Package:

Kilimanjaro Rifles' focus is always on the field and on the hunt. This focus extends to our delivery package. No cheap or flimsy plastic cases or impractical wood/velvet display cases here. No –we deliver your custom rifle in a top of the hard rifle case with a special ballistic nylon padded bolt/accessory pouch proudly embroidered with the Kilimanjaro logo.

As an available option, step up to our Deluxe Delivery Package which features a Pelican 1750 or Boyt Premium double rifle case in which your rifle, accessories, and a premium Kilimanjaro ballistic nylon field case are carefully fitted and ready to withstand a million miles of the toughest treatment any airline, freight company, baggage handler or safari staff can throw at it.
