We’ve reviewed Black Rain Ordnance’s firearms before, and they have fared very favorably. Which is to say that I loved it and dreaded the day it needed to go back. Now, BRO is introducing their Model 602, a bolt action rifle based on an action that BRO has designed from the ground up. Everything from the barrel shank to the bolt face has been designed by BRO to their specs, and there’s a ton of customizable features.
The rifles aren’t even complete yet — this is a prototype, serial number one — but they should ship sometime this year. If they’re anywhere near as accurate as their rifles this should be a friggin’ laser beam. The gun will be chambered in .308 Win initially, with .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua en route. Initial price should be right around $2,800.
