The T-76 Longbow was designed by Dakota Arms for military and law enforcement applications. It has a matte finish and the stock comes in black or olive drab. The cheekpiece and length of pull are adjustable. The action uses control round feeding and a claw extraction system, a Model 70-style trigger that will not seize from dirt or freeze in rain. The rifle has a highly effecient muzzle break, and with the .338 Lapua round, it needs it.

The longbow is an awsome weapon, Dakota even guarantees .5 MOA. The ergonomics of the design are sound, but the price is a little steep at about $4300 USD. If you can get over the price of the rifle, you have an amazing system. It even comes with a very useful deployment kit. In the right conditions, and with the right shooter behind it, the longbow is capable of 1400 meter shots, and even possible of shots approaching 1 mile (1609 meters) in perfect conditions.
