Ed Brown Varmint

Notes: This is a small-caliber varmint rifle built to the standards of Ed Brownís other custom rifles. It has a standard-format pistol grip wrist synthetic stock, with a 1-inch thick Pachmayr recoil pad. It is otherwise similar to other such Ed Brown Custom rifles, and especially the Damara, except for the weight and caliber, the lack of a magazine, and that the barrel is heavier than most Ed Brown designs.

Twilight 2000 Notes: This rifle does not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Harrington & Richardson Ultra Slug Hunter

Notes: Though this weapon fires 12 gauge shotgun slugs, it is for all intents and purposes a rifle, since the barrel is rifled and it is not recommended that shot be fired from it, lest one destroys the rifling. It is a single-shot weapon firing 12 or 20 gauge slugs, and comes in three variants. All use a semi-pistol-grip wrist stock with a Monte Carlo shape. Itís a heavy rifle (as one might expect), built on a 10-gauge action for extra strength. The Ultra Slug Hunter has no iron sights but does have a scope mount which can accept most civilian scopes or sights, and looks similar to a MIL-STD-1913 (but isnít). The action is single-shot break-open, and the hammer has an extended spur so that it doesnít interfere with a scope. The extended spur may be mounted left or right according to the needs of the user. The stock has a thick rubber recoil pad. The gun has a transfer bar safety, in which the hammer never contacts the firing pin, but instead has an intermediate mechanism which can be easily blocked by a safety. The Ultra Slug Hunter comes in a Standard model, a Deluxe Heavy Barrel model, and Youth Model, but the barrels of all three are pretty thick due to the ammunition fired. (Except for the laminated stock and the more exotic wood grain of the weapon, the Deluxe Heavy Barrel is identical to the Standard Model for game purposes.) The Youth Model barrel is 22 inches, while the other two have 24-inch barrels. The Ultra Slug Hunter may fire normal slugs and sabot rounds equally well, but no other type of 12 gauge ammunition is recommended.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The original 12-gauge Ultra Slug Hunter is a rare weapon in the Twilight 2000 timeline; none of the other versions or gauges exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Harrington & Richardson Ultra Varmint

Notes: This is a handy little break-open "walking around" varmint rifle, short despite the long barrel due to its break-open configuration. The Ultra Varmint is equipped with a Weaver-type rail that can mount most telescopic sights. It is a good utility gun.

Henry Acu-Bolt

Notes: This is in many ways a version of another Henry rifle, a youth rifle, which has been upscaled into an adult-sized varmint rifle. The barrel is a full 20 inches long, and the stock is of black synthetic material with checkering on the pistol grip wrist and fore-end. The fore-end is also flat to allow it to sit in a more stable manner on a rest. The metalwork is of stainless steel. The sights are Williams Fire Sights which have red fiberoptic inserts in the rear sights and a green fiberoptic insert in the front sight. In addition, the Acu-Bolt has a cantilever scope base, and comes with a 4x scope and the rings to mount it. The Acu-Bolt is a single-shot bolt-action weapon which is very easy to use and maintain.
