SD-76 Dark Continent™ TD Bolt Acton Rifle


Every Parkwest Arms rifle is built using a unique combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and high-tech manufacturing, creating a world-class firearm that is a pleasure to own and shoot. This simple attitude pervades every stage of the rifle’s construction.
Starting with the selection of properly cured walnut blanks and modern alloy steels, to the hand checkered stocks and blueprinted actions. The attention to detail taken in creating America’s finest custom rifle will provide you with a sense of ownership that you will not find anywhere else.

The Model 76 was developed in 1986 by expert gunsmiths Don Allen and Pete Grisel using a combination of traditional methods and cutting-edge technology. With the SD-76 Dark Continent, Parkwest Arms is pleased to carry on this legacy. The SD-76 Dark Continent rifle, which was created specifically for hunting dangerous game, has grown to be one of the most sought-after rifles in the world. The Takedown version of the Dark Continent can be broken down into two parts, making for a more compact and portable rifle. Additionally, a second barrel in the same caliber family can be made, increasing your rifles versatility.
