$1211 MSRP is pretty sweet.
I like how it doesn’t have the manufacturer’s stylized name or logo taking up the entirety of the magwell. Looking at you Ruger and Mossberg. I don’t like my guns doubling as billboards for the manufacturer.
Wonder what kind of mags it accepts and if it accept all AR grips. Looks like a potential winner. I like how the stock isn’t a side folder. I will be following this one closely…
Is that bolt action sniper rifle fully semi-automatic?
BOLT ACTION answers your question.
Single shot and manual BOLT ACTION.
Does all calibers really mean “all”?
If so, I’ll take a 20mm
Hot diggity damn, yahoo, this is the rifle I’ve been looking for no shit, in 243. Man I’m off to the GS tomorrow, hot damn me happy
What’s your thoughts on it having a 1:10 twist for a .243? Seems slow for all the new high BC projectiles.
Pistol grip, mag, bipod, adjustable stock. Nice scary black gun checks off all the boxes for the antis.
How about 30-06, or are they wedded to short action calibers?
Can’t wait to see the range reviews.
