I love a good quality bolt-action rifle, and today there are so many options. Most of them are mass-produced, relatively cheap, but there are a few options that are a bit more exclusive.
The Gunwerks CoPilot is such a rifle. Priced at $13,995.00 I look forward to reading the comments below. Still I’m sure there’s a place for this kind of build in the market. Remember there are some people who might order a matching pair out there.
The CoPilot is part of what Gunwerks call “The collective“. Since this is the first rifle in the series, I look forward to see what more they will offer.
Designed as the ULTIMATE truck gun, this little guy rides shotgun everywhere you go.
When I think of a “truck gun”, I’m more thinking about something inexpensive that’s always in the truck. Something that works, but you don’t really have to worry about if it get a dent or two. A rifle that’s probably going to be dearer to the owner if it gets a dent or two.
But I guess there are people who need a truck gun for their Bentley Bentayga SUV as well, as the CoPilot might be the perfect choice.

The first installment from The Collective series of rifles from Gunwerks. The CoPilot was designed as the ULTIMATE truck gun. Chambered in 6mm Creedmoor and fitted with an ultra-compact collapsing rifle stock, and designed to run with a silencer, it makes an excellent hunting rig for kids! Watch as this father and son team put the Gunwerks CoPilot to the test on a Texas whitetail hunt.
