Step 1: The King of Two Miles

At this moment we are building the pre-production model. The first one was made entirely by Pim and the Pirosport Team. For the next phase we will work together with production partners. With this pre-production model we can work out the most efficient proces to produce the Ascalon rifle in larger numbers.

Pim will shoot the pre-production model in April in France at the King of Two Miles.
To be as succesfull as he anticipates for the 3.2 kilometer range, the pre production model will be made in .375 Cheytac.

We will keep you updated!

Step 2: the first ten rifles available

The next step after the King of Two Miles will be the production of the first ten rifles. These ten will be custom made to fit the wishes of the new owner and will of course be numbered rifles (x of 10).

The rifles will be available in 4 types:

  • Type A: .308, .260, .243, 30-06, .280, 6.5x55, 6.5x47 etc.
    The most used large caliber munition.
  • Type B: .300 Win Mag, 7 WSM en .300 RUM.
    The common magnum calibers.
  • Type C: .338 Lapua Magnum, .300 Norma magnum en 7MM Hulk.
    The larger magnum calibers.
  • Type D: .375 Cheytac en .408 Cheytac.
    The really big guys.

Every rifle will be fitted with our patented fast change system, so the shooter can easily change his bolt and his barrel. Making it a multi disciplinary rifle.

Summary

The Ascalon has a lot of advantages:

  • 1. A jammed rifle due to a stuck case is now a thing of the past.
  • 2. Manipulation is a lot easier.
  • 3. The bolt maintains a true position relative to the cartridge without demanding very small tolerances within the rifle.
  • 4. The production process has been drastically simplified.
