**************
Narrative:
This rifle was built specifically for National Hero, Chris Kyle, the most significant sniper in American history. Industry partners, Kryptek Outdoor Group and Weatherby collaborated with Chris on the build of the gun in the fall of 2012. As an Elite Pro Staff Member of Kryptek Outdoor Group, the purpose of the gun was to match Chris Kyle's superior marksmanship skills with the accuracy and precision of Weatherby on long range, extreme backcountry hunting adventures.

Chris was killed on February 2, 2013. The decision was made between Kryptek, Weatherby, and the Kyle family to continue the build, and instead of keeping the gun, auction it off with all proceeds going to Chris's wife, Taya Kyle.
