The North Valley Search and Rescue Association will be auctioning off a Proof Research Elevation Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor.

The gun is similar to one the Association auctioned off last year.

It is still being manufactured, but will have a custom finish by Ely Yerian Designs, an Arken Optics Scope and a Tipperary Leatherworks sling.

All told, the premium rifle only weighs 6.5 pounds.

The gun will help defray the cost of new 50 watt radios for vehicles, which will utilize analog signals for better transmissions in the mountainous terrain of the Flathead Valley.

They can also be used as repeaters.

NVSR goes on about 30 missions annually, searching for and helping folks who have emergency situations in the woods and waters.

It has about 60 members total.

Only 600 tickets will be available. They are $20 each for the rifle.

The drawing is Oct. 1 at the Blue Moon during the annual NVSR event. The gun is sponsored by Freedom Bank and Proof, so 100% of the raffle proceeds benefit the organization.

Tickets are available online at or by email at or at the Blue Moon or any member of the rescue organization.
