Other links: http://www.sfu.ca/casr/101-mrsws.htm Prairie Gun Works also submitted a .338"-chambered candidate to the CF trials. The Timberwolf is in effect an enlarged version of PGWDTI’s Coyote design. The only trialled rifle able to meet the CF’s 1250m accuracy specifications, the Timberwolf’s acceptance was delayed because of flaws in the CF’s 800m spec. In April 2005 a contract was awarded to PGWDTI. The Timberwolf is the CF’s new .338" Lapua Medium-Range Sniper’s Weapon System. There’s no word yet when this powerful new rifle will enter Canadian service. PGW DEFENCE TECHNOLOGIES INC. P.O.
