High-End Rifles of the Dallas Safari Club Convention

posted on January 12, 2014

Although much of the attention at the annual Dallas Safari Club convention has been focused on the organization's controversial black rhino hunt auction—which hopes to raise as much as $1 million, which would be earmarked to support further conservation efforts for the species—the show has had no shortage of non-rhino attention-grabbers.

Chief among those headliners are a selection of high-end custom rifles that some of the world's most renowned gunmakers unveiled on the convention floor. Firearms aficionados from around the world had the opportunity to view—and later, bid on—a number of incredible handcrafted rifles. The final selling price of these beauties, some of which take years to craft, ranged from $10,000 to over $400,000.

Admittedly, many hunters aren't going to have a $400,000 rifle in their budget. But that doesn't mean the sheer craftsmanship of such a firearm can't be admired. Get a closer look at some of the show's finest selections in the videos embedded below, hosted by Kevin Jarnagin.
