  • Skinner Sights Bush Pilot Kit

    Skinner Sights, LLC, is coming out with a specialized survival kit for bush pilots and back country enthusiasts.

    The Bush Pilot Survival Kit features a customized Chiappa .44 Magnum lever-action rifle that’s designed to separate in half for compact carry.

    The kit also includes a RAT-7 Ontario Knife Company Survival knife with a 7.2-inch carbon steel black powder coated blade and Micarta handle. The kit also contains Titan storm and waterproof matches in a sturdy capsule, magnesium fire starter, Ration brand heat and cooking stove with Hexamine fuel tablets, tough “polyester film space blanket” tube tent large enough for two adults, Brunton TruArc 3 flat base scouting compass and 50 feet of nylon utility cord.

    The kit comes with a custom, 1,000 denier Cordura padded carry bag with a 500 denier liner. The bag features MOLLE attachment points for the knife sheath, and an easy-open, buckle down closure flap.

    “This unique survival kit is the result of spending a lifetime in the extreme outdoors,” according to Andy Larsson, owner of Skinner Sights.

    The rifle has a six-round capacity plus one in the chamber, weighs 5.5 pounds and features a 16-inch barrel.

    The Bush Pilot Survival Kit will retail for $1,799.

    Pretty cool kit but if I were a bush pilot in Alaska I'd prefer a 45/70 over a .44 when griz are looking at me as dinner.

      The rifle seems like a nice idea.

      But, at a minimum, I'd throw away the matches, "utility" cord, knife and compass and substitute a couple Bic lighters, some 550 paracord, a Leatherman Surge and a Cammenga Lensatic compass. Oh, and I think a flashlight would come in handy. Did they forget that little piece of essential gear?

      As usual, when it comes to things like survival kits, food rations or first-aid kits, you can almost always do better and save money by rolling your own than buying something that's prepackaged and is usually just a bunch of marketing hooey.

      They'll sell these to preppers and back-woods wannabes. I wonder how many bush pilot there are out there who don't already know better what they need.

          I guess I was ahead of my time. Sent a Marlin 1894P to WWG years ago and had the Co-Pilot conversion done. Not cheap, but a sweet little gun. One of these days I might actually shoot it!
