Thread: New British rifle on the scene...

    New British rifle on the scene...

    Heard about this new rifle coming out:







    Its been designed and built by the guy that gave us the RPA rifle action. It's farkin ugly, but intel inside tells me it's a tack driver.

    Being made by:

    Steel Core Designs - Home of the Thunderbolt Tactical Rifles
    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.

    Ugly is as ugly does. If it shoots?? a person can get around the looks. I wonder how many coins one would need to part with to get one?? I looked at a SAKO TRG22 in 308 the other night. The accessories were (roughly) as follows:

    Magazines: $285 US (each)
    Sling with Swivels: $165 US
    Bipod: $568 US
    Rings: $450 US

    The rifle was comparatively cheap at only $3065 US. I think these high tech accuracy guys produce great rifles, but over charge John Q. Public to the extreme....~Muir

    looks like a tube gun with a fat belly...

    I am going to have to say I like the look of that. I wouldn't want to carry it stalking, but it might be a lot of fun in a suitable calibre. That deep belly would hide a 10 round magazine? Actually, stood up on it's butt, it looks a bit like me with that belly..

    Anybody know how much?

    They retail for around 3300, they are tested at my local range, I have seen them make repeated hits out to 1100 meters at the Lydd MOD ranges with 12 year old German NATO ammo.
