Wyoming-based gun maker Gunwerks has unveiled its new CoPilot rifle. This is a limited edition rifle, with less than 100 being made for the general public. The rifle is part of Gunwerks’ premium “Collective” series.

Billed in the presser as the “ultimate” truck gun for the land manager, hunter and those with discerning taste, the Gunwerks CoPilot is chambered in 6mm Creedmoor. It features a ustom match grade 16.5-inch carbon fiber wrapped Proof Research barrel; collapsible carbon fiber stock (10.5″ to 14″ length of pull); frictionless TriggerTech match grade trigger; and Tungsten Cerakote finish. It also comes standard with a Nightforce ATACR F1 4-16×42 optic, and it’s ready for a SilencerCo Omega suppressor with a 5/8×24 threaded muzzle. At the heart of the gun is Gunwerks’ GLR bolt action.

The CoPilot ships in a custom Armageddon Gear soft side case. The case secures the rifle and houses the SilencerCo suppressor, as well as ammo boxes in specialized compartments. The car can be set down like a suitcase. It can also stand up unlike other soft side gun cases, Gunwerks says. The package ships with 1,500 rounds of 103 grain Hornady ELDX which carry an average muzzle velocity from the CoPilot of 2,650 fps.

Lastly, the package also features the Gunwerks Long Range Package. This means the gun is not only tested at 100 yards, but also at a distance to create a ballistic profile for each rifle. The info for a given altitude and temperature is then engraved on a ballistic turret. With the trigger set at two pounds, and the crisp pull coupled with the custom carbon barrel and NightForce scope, this rifle has an effective hunting range of 800 yards. The target range extends beyond 1,200, according to Gunwerks.

“We pooled some of the brightest minds and makers of the best components in the industry. Then, sparing no expense and cutting zero corners, the concept of The CoPilot as the ultimate truck gun was conceived,” Gunwerks COO James Christensen said. “We wanted a rifle system that was accurate, lightweight, suppressed, and had all the top-of-the-line trimmings. It had to be perfect for a coyote, whitetail, or even a 500 lbs Nilgai.”

The Gunwerks CoPilot is priced at $13,995. Features, specs and videos are below.
