Promising sub-MOA accuracy and boasting at least eight feet of Picatinny rail (imagine the possibilities…) the Accuracy International AX-308 is the successor platform to their legendary Arctic Warfare series of precision tactical rifles. Long, heavy barrel? Check. Folding stock? Check. Astronomical price tag? Check.
We’ve been angling for a test model since last spring, and a quick confab with rep Todd Siegmund confirmed that we’re still inching our way up the waiting list. We’ve got no idea how it shoots, yet, but it looks so much like an Imperial Stormtrooper sniper rifle that I hope they’ve already paid off George Lucas.
