New For 2013:

The Serengeti CUSTOM HUNTINg Rifle

Kilimanjaro Quality & Beauty At A More Affordable Price

For those hunters that cannot yet afford to treat themselves to the ultimate, full custom rifle experience of our flagship Kilimanjaro Rifle, the Serengeti Custom Hunting Rifle –new for 2013– features all of Kilimanjaro’s quality, strength, beauty and accuracy, but at a lower starting price than our flagship by utilizing fine American Walnut, more affordable actions and a few features made options rather than standard.

Featuring our proprietary Stealth Lamination for superior strength and stability, the Serengeti Custom Rifle is available in your choice of virtually any chambering, right or left hand, Monte Carlo or straight comb, in any of our stock geometries, all of which can be further customized and fit to your specifications. Chambering from 22-250 to 458 Lott (and all stops in between) is possible with the standard actions. With upgraded action options, the Serengeti Custom Rifle can be chambered all the way up to the massive 505 Gibbs cartridge.

The Serengeti 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 stability of a synthetic stock but with the beauty, sound qualities and superior feel of fine walnut. You may also choose an un-laminated wood stock if you prefer.


The Serengeti Custom Rifle is available in a variety of standard actions, including our refined and improved versions of the Kimber 84M, Kimber 84L, Kimber 8400, Winchester Model 70 Long, and Winchester Model 70 Short actions. Featuring full controlled-round feed, a Mauser style claw extractor, and three-position shroud-mounted safety, these actions all continue the finest parts of the Mauser 98 and Winchester Model 70 action designs. We not only blue-print and refine these actions for optimum performance, but re-sculpt the exterior for a more elegant appearance. In addition to these standard actions, you may choose to upgrade to the Sako, Dakota or Granite Mountain actions. Indeed, the Serengeti Custom Rifle can be crafted based on virtually any commercially available or customer provided action. With the Winchester, Dakota and Granite Mountain actions, the Serengeti Custom Rifle is available in both left and right hand configurations.


Virtually any cartridge chambering is possible, including most wild-cats, from 22-250 up to 458 Lott utilizing a case head from 0.473 to 0.534 in the standard actions. Chambering in Rigby/Lapua/Gibbs class cartridges is available on the Serengeti Custom Rifle with upgrade to either the Dakota or Granite Mountain actions.


A free-floated 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.

AAA Grade American Walnut Stock:

Choose your wood blank from our selection of the finest AAA grade American Walnut. Based on the geometry you select, your stock is laminated, and then carved and inlet using our precision equipment. As with all of Kilimanjaro's rifles, however, the final shaping and fitting is still done by hand 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.


The Serengeti Custom Rifle is available in any of our starting stock geometries shown on the Geometries page under Features. These starting geometries can be further refined and customized to your specifications.

Deluxe Wrap-Around Checkering:

The Serengeti Custom 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 featured on the Kilimanjaro Rifle is the finest, toughest and most beautiful in the industry, and we are pleased to now include it as standard on the Serengeti Custom Rifle as well. Designed specifically for rugged field use, and to keep looking beautiful year after year in the harshest of conditions, it is a hand-rubbed tung-oil/polyurethane base finish applied and seasoned utilizing the special procedures developed during our extensive R&D efforts.

Ceramic Metal Coating:

Kilimanjaro's 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.

Quality Assurance:

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.

Other Features:

The Serengeti Custom Hunting Rifle also comes standard with bolt jewelling, shadow-line cheek piece, Ebony or Ironwood fore-end tip and grip cap, two action cross-bolts with Ebony or Ironwood caps, Dakota style in-let swivel studs, Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad in your choice of thickness and color, and Talley Quick Detachable scope rings & bases.
