Long Range Hunting Rifle Review – Fierce Firearms
I first came across the Fierce line last year when a customer of mine was looking for something custom but he didn’t have the biggest budget in the world. So, I was looking for “custom on a budget.” Of course it doesn’t seem like those words should go together, at least not in the firearms industry, where most gun enthusiasts would say “you get what you pay for.” Regarding some brands you might even say “you get what you over-pay for.” However, I don’t find that to be the case with Fierce Firearms Custom Rifle line. You would be hard pressed to assemble something of this quality on your own for the same price or even close to it.
Watch just what makes Fierce Firearms different than most of their long range rifle competition.
Fierce Firearms Custom Rifle line first debuted in 2014. This very young company has a notably diverse product line consisting of six models—all based on the Sako 85 Rifle’s bolt action. John Mogle, Fierce’s founder and CEO, has been a long-time fan of the Sako 85. When he decided to go into custom/semi-production rifle manufacturing in 2014, he simply cloned what was, in his experience, the best action available. He created his first long gun and still the flagship model: The Edge. In this article we will look at my four favorite Fierce Rifles.
Check out our Fierce Rifles HERE
The Fierce Firearms Edge Long-Range Rifle is the original Fierce Custom Rifle.
It is very reasonably priced at $2,775.00. This high caliber rifle is a game changer for hunters looking for true, consistent accuracy and precision every time. It has a great trigger with a pull that is 1-4 lbs. The Edge comes with a guaranteed 1/2-inch group at 100 yards. Another feature that made the original Fierce Firearms Edge so popular is the rifle’s weight – which comes in at just under seven pounds.
The Fierce Firearms Fury Long-Range Rifle makes the Fierce Firearms line even more affordable.
It has a beginning price of just $1,995.00 making it The Best-Most Affordable Long Range Rifle. The Fury, built off of the Fierce triad action – has all of the same features and benefits of the Edge model. The only differences between the Edge and the Fury is that the barrel and bolt are not fluted on the Fury and its bolt is polished instead of coated in our DLC coating. The Fury comes with a 1/2-inch group guarantee (as do all Fierce rifles). The Fury comes with durable satin cerokote finish. So far, no one can come close to winning The Fury Challenge issued by John Mogle.
Chamberings include: 6.5 Creedmore, 7mm Rem. Mag., .28 Nosler, .300 WSM, .300 Win. Mag. and .300 Ultra Mag.
Next up is the Fierce Firearms Carbon Edge (carbon barrel) Lightweight Long-Range Hunting Rifle
It sells for $3,250.00. The Carbon Edge has all of the same features and benefits of the original Edge rifle but with a lightweight C3 carbon barrel. With the very durable C3 carbon barrel a shooters accuracy is comparable to that of a heavier barrelled rifle.
The Carbon Edge satisfies the demands of the serious hunter, offering the popular Edge model with a carbon barrel. Carbon offers the advantage of keeping your barrel free from expanding or shrinking in hot or cold conditions, allowing for shot-after-shot accuracy. The carbon bull barrel offers an aesthetic that appeases those looking for a tough, enduring rifle.
The Fierce Edge brings you custom performance and accuracy at a factory rifle price. The new Fierce Edge is truly a game changer in the shooting and hunting sport. You no longer have to overpay for accuracy. The Edge comes with a 1/2-inch group guarantee at 100 yards and a validation target is included with every rifle. Another impressive feature of the Edge is the weight, coming in under six pounds. Fierce offers you a high caliber, long-range performing rifle at half the price of most custom rifles.
Fierce Firearms CT EDGE (carbon barrel, titanium action) Premier Long-Range Rifle
Last but definitely not least, the CT Edges sells for just $3,775.00. If you’re thinking to yourself what is left to improve upon when it comes to Fierce Firearms rifle designs… here are two words for you: TITANIUM ACTION. Yup. The CT Edge is an ultimate lightweight, long-range rifle. Its accuracy is hard to rival. The CT Edge also comes with a C3 carbon barrel and titanium action. Altogether this fierce combination gives you a custom rifle that weighs less that 6 pounds, delivers incredible accuracy, and half the price of most custom rifles.
