Long-range precision [IDEX17D1]

18 February 2017

Austrian firearms design and manufacturing company Ritter & Stark (Stand 07-D18) is exhibiting its SX-1 Modular Tactical Rifle (MTR).

The SX-1 MTR can be customised to fit the mission and the user, as well as deliver punishing performance – shot after accurate shot. This long-range precision rifle is said to be an ideal weapon for military and law enforcement agencies, as well as serious competitors and shooters.

The SX-1 MTR can quickly and easily change calibres between a .308 Win, a .300 Win Magnum and a .338 Lapua Magnum. The MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail is installed directly on the barrel, allowing the user to interchange barrels with pre-set scopes without a loss of zero. The patented calibre conversion system ensures that the barrel is precisely positioned in the machined aluminium receiver, allowing for a greater area of contact, resulting in increased stability.

The bolt also locks directly into the barrel breech, which gives the SX-1 MTR unprecedented accuracy.
