About ATG

Pete Simmons, co-owner of Buck Run Hunting Lodge, is a Class 7 gun manufacturer and has spent years learning his gun making skills. Combine this with 25 years of operating a hunting outfitter and guide service for deer, turkey, and wild hogs, and you have a master craftsman that knows what it takes to create a precision hunting rifle.

Buck Run is renowned for its trophy, velvet deer hunting and unparalleled turkey hunting. Hundreds of hunters visit buck run each year and Pete gets to see all kinds of guns, and watch hunters struggle to place three bullets in a target at 100 yards. If you can’t do it, he won’t let you hunt. He has worked with thousands of hunters to get their weapons on target, and eventually started building his own shooting system to meet the field requirements of hunting in the low country of South Carolina.

pete-gunstockATG Rifles begin with a Pac-Nor barrel blank that is a super match grade, stainless barrel in a sendero contour. The barrel is threaded, chambered, fluted, and set with an 11 degree crown.

The HS Precision stock, also in a sendero contour, is skim bedded to 1” above the receiver.

All guns include a world-renowned Jewell trigger, set to a 16 oz. pull. Triggers can be adjusted to a lighter or stronger pull, depending on the owner’s preference.

A Remington 700 action is completely blueprinted to include truing of all lugs, receiver and bolt face, and thread aligning.

All metal surfaces are a Duracoat Firearm Finish, which is available in a wide variety of colors. Click here to see color options from Duracoat.

Select an overall finish color/pattern that fits your hunting environments. Popular finish combinations include tan with black webbing, green with black webbing, brown camo, green camo, sand, and granite. For that extra personalization, we also offer hydrographic dipping (contact us for additional pricing).

We are a dealer for several brands of scopes, but for long range shooting we highly recommend a Huskemaw 5x20x50 or 5x30x56 optic shooting system. For medium range shooting, the American made Leuopold, with a 50mm objective, is a highly effective scope. All ATG Rifles are sighted in on our 500-yard range before being shipped, or handed over to clients that visit with us.
