Perhaps my emphasis on the rifle's accuracy encouraged people to think that it is a purpose built target rifle. It's actually a hunting rifle, for which reason it's fitted with a sling. It performed very well on a 163 pound buck on opening day at 67 yards. While the buck and other accessories aren't included with the rifle, I would think you can easily get your own once you buy the rifle.

I'm always interested in custom guns. You may private message me with the details. I'm selling the gun to pay for a nice custom fowler. I do a lot of wing shooting, and since I can bag 100 pheasants per year versus 1 deer, I think I'll get more use out of another fowler.

I thought to post a picture a of the buck's heart, but it occurred to me that such an image may not be suitable for all audiences. Instead, I've posted a typical offhand 75 yard target. I pulled the last shot into the 9 ring, but the other 6 shots of the 7 fired, are as good a group as I'm capable of shooting offhand, and any one of these shots, even the wide 9 will stop a buck in his tracks at that distance.

It will print one ragged hole off a bench. The white lightning flash hole liner and Emig improved ignition creates a very fast lock time. I think the gun actually discharges before the hammer falls, since as soon as the flint hits the frizzen the sparks begin to shower.

I have an Emig rifle. I can not tell you how much I love it because I do not know where to start.

If the Emigs lived in Japan, they would be official National Treasures.
