I’ve been shooting and representing Christensen Arms for many years now.

When they started building carbon fiber barreled rifles for hunters, it really piqued my interest and showed that this company cares about a lot of the same things that are important to me.

All serious big game hunters understand that a high-quality, lightweight rifle allows you to hike and hunt better. Christensen Arms understands this, too.

They also understand that exceptional accuracy is paramount.

Hiking in the mountains for days and days leads to a split-second opportunity. The more accurate the rifle, the better chance for success even if you don’t make a perfect trigger squeeze. Inherent accuracy allows a slightly larger margin for operator error; and none of us are perfect with our shots all the time.

And, finally, Christensen Arms understands quality craftsmanship and engineering. They deliver the whole package in their rifles. And while their rifles are not inexpensive, a Christensen Arms rifle, in my opinion, represents the absolute best value in quality hunting rifles available today.

My Christensen rifle of choice is the Traverse. I took mine to the Yukon on a sheep hunt. It’s lightweight, durable, and survived everything the Yukon threw at it. It’s my go-to hunting rifle.
