Feistritz, Austria – Ritter & Stark GmbH, an Austrian-based firearms design and manufacturing company, will be exhibiting at the IWA Outdoor Classics 2017 exhibition March 3 – 6, in Nuremberg, Germany. The IWA Outdoor Classics is one of the world’s largest trade fairs for hunting, shooting sports, and civilian and professional security. Ritter & Stark will not only display the SX-1 Modular Tactical Rifle (MTR), but will continue their tradition of presenting new products at IWA for the very first time.
Building on the success of the SX-1, R&S developed the SLX series, a short-action, and multi-caliber, precision bolt-action rifle weighing less and shorter than its big brother. The SLX-308, available in .308 Win./ 7.62×51 NATO will be shown at IWA with the.260 Rem., and 6.5 Creedmoor calibers becoming available at a later date.
The SLX-308 employs many of the innovative features of the SX-1 including the direct installation of a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail on the barrel, which allows the user to interchange barrels with pre-set scopes easily and quickly, all without a loss of zero. Additionally, the SLX-308’s fully adjustable, 2-stage Remington 700 standard compatible trigger ensures precise fire control.
The fully-adjustable buttstock can be customized to fit the operator by length, cheekpiece height and height of the recoil pad. The buttstock is also equipped with a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail for a monopod attachment. The SLX rifle is the newest option available from R&S for precision shooters looking for a shorter overall length and less weight in a precision, long-range rifle.
For the professional military, security, police officer, hunter or target shooter, the most important attribute of a rifle is accuracy and Ritter & Stark delivers. The SX-1 MTR and SLX-308 barrels are guaranteed 100 percent accurate to at least 0.5 MOA for an industry leading 5,000 rounds in available calibers using factory grade ammunition.
