IMI Timber Wolf

Taking a rifle out into the woods is a pleasure that's just not enjoyed enough anymore.

Perhaps that's because a handy, comfortable-to-carry, woods rifle hasn't been available for decades. Action Arms' new Timber Wolf has changed all that. Here again is a well-balanced, offhand rifle that rides at one's side, almost weightlessly, throughout a leisurely walk under a forest canopy.

The classic woods rifle - revisited

The new Timber Wolf brings together a combination of the style and features of slide-action rifles of an earlier era: A time when quality and workmanship were hallmarks of firearms manufacturing. It was also a time when life's pace allowed sportsmen a relaxed afternoon of "woods loafing."

The new Timber Wolf makes a great companion for your favorite revolver

Chambered in the popular .357 Magnum cartridge, this slide-action carbine is light weight, and it takes down to be even easier to pack along. Its carbine-length barrel squeezes every bit of performance out of any magnum load, and it's just over 18 inches long.

Classic looks don't compromise modern technology and features

The Timber Wolf's slim lines and walnut stock are reminiscent of a bygone era, but features like integral scope bases and a sear-locking safety assure that this is a rifle for today. Naturally, open iron sights are included. The milled receiver and barrel meet the same rigid specifications Israel Military Industries builds into all of their firearms, including the legendary UZI.

Your next rifle ought to be one you'll shoot a lot.

The Timber Wolf is fun to shoot. It shoots .38 Special or .357 Magnum, and it is as much at home on an indoor range as it is in the woods. It takes down and is easy to carry. Weighing only around five and a half pounds, the Timber Wolf has all of the features that make a rifle classic. Ask to see one, feel its balance and find out for yourself.
