Press release:

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.

  1. “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.”

    A “precision” rifle that actually is precise with factory ammunition … wow!

    • Just a wild guess here – Maybe just to be different and look cool, or maybe so when it’s folded up the bottom of the rail is clean for gripping or for resting on whatever.

    • It’s probably for that incredibly operational operating position where the operator leans out of a car truck and operates (i.e. shoots) upside down from under the door.

    • Just another guess. I’m thinking the rifle will be less teeter-y when it is hung below, rather than stuck on top of the apex of the bipod. I’d give one of those bipods a try, but they’re priced like they’re made of precious metals.

    • I saw that bipod and thought, “Man! That looks really cool! I want one for my Mosin Nagant!” Don’t worry folks, I won’t link to its TTAG “Show Us Your Weapon of War” again… as much as I want to troll the haters!

    • Just guessing, but it probably acts like an A-Frame, suspension of the weigh versus supporting the weight.

  2. Will there be a left-handed version? Anybody here familiar enough with this manufacturer to hazard a guess?

    • Looking at their website I can’t find anything for us southpaws. I don’t think anyone is making a left-handed rifle with a chassis system anymore. Even Savage looks like they cut back on their left handed offerings. So once again it’s find a chassis you like that offers a left handed option and then pick your action and get it barreled for the caliber you want.

  3. I wonder how much those will be picked off the shelf for….and if we can get them imported here.

  4. Price tag? And I love it when a mfr releases a multi caliber weapon (Sig) and plans to release other caliber (bbls) in the future but never quite does. Been burned once. Never again.
