The Wildey Pistol

When selecting a handgun for hunting, it is important to consider one that will handle hotter loads and still be comfortable to handle. The Wildey pistol’s action features a three lug, enclosed face rotary bolt that easily handles high pressure loads. The patented gas operation may be adjusted for different loads. This lets a shooter switch from the lightest to the heaviest bullet and not notice much difference in felt recoil. It also aids in accuracy, letting the shooter handle longer shots from such high handgun velocities. The gun is offered in 44 Auto Mag, 45 Winchester Magnum and four Wildey cartridges (41 Wildey Mag., 44 Wildey Mag., 45 Wildey Mag., and the 475 Wildey Mag.) The .475 Wildey Magnum is the mainstay, using our bullets, it has more retained energy at 100 yards than a 44 Magnum does at the muzzle. The .475 Wildey Magnum case is necked down to make the other Wildey calibers and they are ballistically impressive (see chart). Interchangeable barrel assemblies are available in 5", 6", 7", 8", 10", 12", and 14" lengths and/or the five different calibers as they all fit the same frame. I had the opportunity to shoot the .475 Wildey Magnum and feared my small grip would not be able to control the monster. After several shots, I knew it would only take a couple afternoons of shooting to become rather proficient. It was what I consider, a "fun" gun to shoot.

We have always offered our Precision bullets for .475 caliber handguns. We added the auto design nose just for the Wildey and the selection of bullets has since grown to 8, including our new full metal jacket. Our clients have used the Wildeys on boar, elk, black bear, deer, moose, and to finish off a brown bear. In all cases, the hunters were delighted with the performance of the Wildey/Hawk combination.
