Jarrett’s Shikar is an innovative wood stocked rifle that doesn’t change point of impact because of the weather. What’s the secret behind Wood that Works? It’s a Jarrett designed stabilizing aluminum chassis inside a gorgeous American Black Walnut stock cured 28 years. A Jarrett tested weather impervious finish provides ultimate protection from the elements.

The Shikar is available in three stock designs, English, Estate and Grand Classic that combine timeless “gun room” beauty with legendary Jarrett accuracy. Our accuracy guarantee is ½ M.O.A. at 100 yards on all .30 caliber or smaller chamberings, while everything above .30 caliber is 7/10ths or better.

"We’re very proud of the new Jarrett Shikar rifle series.
After 130 years of unpredictable wood rifles we’re proud to
be the first to offer one that we guarantee will not change point
of impact regardless of the weather experienced during your hunt.
“Wood that Works” is our moniker for the new chassis frame Shikar rifle."

“Wood that Works”

Jarrett Rifles offers a brilliant solution for the age-old problem with wood stocked rifles -- varying humidity means varying accuracy. Jarrett’s answer, called “Wood that Works,” is now available in their spectacular new Shikar Series.

Employing a totally new concept in wood stocked rifles, Jarrett uses its own CNC machines to fabricate a stabilizing 6061 aluminum chassis. The chassis is fitted and epoxied into a stock carved from a gorgeous blank of 28-year-old American black walnut. A Jarrett Tri-Lock receiver is then lightly bedded into the chassis and a hand-lapped super accurate Jarrett barrel is completely free floated in an epoxy lined barrel channel. Lastly, a thoroughly tested two-part epoxy barrier is applied to the stock’s outer surface, resulting in a durable, completely moisture impervious finish.

Available in three stock patterns, English, Estate, and Ultimate Classic, each repeater Shikar features hand cut checkering, trap door floor plate, Decelerator pad and Talley rings and bases. Jarrett’s Shikar Series produces unrivaled accuracy, absolute reliability and is guaranteed not to change point of impact under any climate condition. For those who love the classic rifle look, the Shikar Series’ utter beauty, durability and accuracy of “Wood that Works” will delight you.
