Our storefront is reminiscent of the old west with large wooden beams holding up the front overhang and a rustic wood engraved sign. Corlane Sporting Goods Ltd. new location as of July 2007 is just northwest of the traffic circle in Dawson Creek, BC where the Alaska Highway intersects with Highways 2 and 49. You can take pictures of the world famous Mile "0" Post just three blocks away. See real grizzly bear paw castings in the concrete posts on both sides of the entrance. The front door handles are made of elk antler that feels solid and warm even on the coldest day. Just inside the building there is a customer photo brag wall and beyond that your jaw drops to the floor as you enter "a sportsman's dream". This is truly a "must see" destination for tourists and sportsmen. Above your head the collection of big horn sheep includes a life size ram on a rock. To your right a long row of firearms and ammunition sets the stage for the caribou, elk, moose, mule deer, whitetails and cougar that line the north wall. In the reloading corner you'll find a black bear rug, antelope, and yet another life size ram. There is a polar bear above the archery section and a great display of local and exotic varieties of fish above the fishing section. Behind the main till is an assortment of outdoor themed giftware and look up for a flock of birds on the east wall. As you walk amongst the game heads, the photos and the people in the aisles you can hear the faint sound of a milling machine coming from the gunshop. That my friends is the sound of experience. It is the labor and heart of a thousand hunts lived and breathed in a land nearly forgotten by time. A while ago someone asked me what makes our rifles different than any other custom sporter you can buy for nothing more than a bit of money. My answer to him was simply this: history. We live what we build and we build what we have lived. There is no pretense in our craft or our business. We are a result of nothing more than two or three generations of experience on the last frontier in the northern world and as a result we stand behind every rifle we build. Corlanes and its product, Rocky Mountain Rifles, have been in the small northern British Columbia community of Dawson Creek for over forty years. It is a family business handed down from mother and father to sons and daughter. Indeed, if this business was a child then Jack Schram would be the grandfather of it all. He bought the store in 1962 and nursed her into a healthy young business over a period of twenty eight years. Then in 1990 he sold Corlanes to his sons Tim and Rod and his daughter Brenda. Over the coming years the company developed a fine custom lightweight all weather sporting rifle that has become very popular in the Canadian west. In fact, they and their product have been profiled in Western Sportsman magazine (read the article by clicking on the link) and other fine Canadian publications. We are a custom gun shop producing fine quality firearms to suit the discriminating hunter and target enthusiast. There are four gunsmiths on staff. Our shop is equipped with a variety of machinery and tooling to perform most rifle building tasks in house. A second shop is located close by which houses our teflon, powder coating and painting equipment. We can build custom rifles from scratch with your choice of components, or resurrect your old rifle. We can help you with decisions to make sure you end up with the rifle to suit your needs. But it's not the pomp that matters. Come and see for yourself. Because in the end the question isn't if you will buy our product and experience our world but rather... when?more...
They have a wonderful selection for a small town. Prices for some things are a little high but their gunsmithing is second to none! I have had 3 guns repaired by Greg and every one was a reasonable price and done while I waited.
dont know why anyone would rate corlane sporting with one star these guys and gals are extremely helpful like any good business they wont answer pricing questions online cause of the competition but hands down this is one of the best out door stores I've been in
have delt with this company in past was good to chat.
But have E-mailed a few times. No answer
would like to do business and find out prices and models of rifles
they do not answer back. Once had email only stating they can not help! and that was all the email had stated in response to my email inquiry
