From Colt . . .

Colt proudly announces the launch of its new CBX Precision Rifle. The CBX is an advanced bolt-action chassis rifle with features ideal for competitive shooters. “Our engineers excelled in the design of the CBX Rifle,” remarked Jessica Treglia, Colt Manufacturing, Director of Commercial Products. “We’ve created a premium precision rifle worthy of the Colt name.”

The CBX rifle is customizable for a shooters’ fit, and its modular accommodates aftermarket accessories including suppressors, weights, AICS magazines, and optic mounts.

The modularity of a chassis rifle system makes them a popular choice for competitive target shooters. The CBX’s user-adjustable length-of-pull and cheek weld allow a custom shooter fit. The rifle’s aluminum chassis features a 15-inch extended forend with an ARCA rail and M-LOK® slots for mounting accessories. An aggressive barricade stop establishes a solid shooting platform in any position. Enhanced ergonomics include an angled pistol grip, built-in thumb shelf, QD cups, and an ambidextrous magazine release, providing a user-friendly shooting experience.

The CBX rifle system features a flat-bottom receiver—a design that reduces flex and improves accuracy. Its 60° bolt throw allows for faster cycling times and increased optic compatibility, while its ergonomic 2-position tang safety is intuitive and quick to operate. A user-adjustable (2.5-5lb), crisp trigger allows a customizable shooter feel.

Colt optimized the CBX’s carbon steel, button-rifled barrel’s length for ballistic performance. The 6.5 Creedmoor sports a 26-inch barrel, while the .308 Win uses a 24-inch barrel, and both feature 5/8-24 UNEF threaded muzzles with thread protectors. A black nitride treatment protects barrels from corrosion while providing a tactical matte finish.

Other features included with the CBX rifle system are a 1-piece Picatinny rail with Rem700 compatible scope mounts and a detachable 5-round Magpul AICS magazine.

Colt backs the CBX Precision Rifle with a sub-MOA accuracy guarantee. “We are proud of the CBX rifle platform and know shooters will love how it performs,” added Treglia. The CBX Precision Rifle is available at Colt now at dealers nationwide.

  1. The 60° bolt throw has my interest.

    Looks like a MDT manufactured chassis.

    More cartridge offerings needed. 6.5 Creed and .308 not selling it for me.

    • Not going to say they are dead calibers but damned hard to find loaded or brass for while 6,6.5, and soon 7 creed are at least visible.

    • At least a 6mm Creed if it’s just a short action. And possibly 6.5 PRC if their SA is long enough.

  2. Way to go Colt! Introducing new and excited products 8 years behind the curve. At this rate they are due for a single stack conceal carry poly 9mm next year!

  3. Wow that’s a cool riffle for that price. And double wow on the Creedmoore with a 26 inch barrel.
    No matter what riffle you use long barrels always put you closer.

  4. No available threaded barrel is a minus, in my book.

    Was there a reduction in accuracy reason for not offering it with one?

  5. I hope Mr. Taylor does a review on this. I can never afford anything he reviews but he always does a good job.
