UK specialist rifle maker Rangemaster (Stand N6-376) is introducing its latest Ultra series of tactical rifles, which comprise the .308 (pictured), .338 and 50-cal Browning machine gun (BMG).

According to Michael Markham, chief executive of Rangemaster Precision Arms, this range of tactical rifles takes the precision and accuracy of its products to a new level.

Among the features of the Ultra chassis system is a left closing stock incorporating the company’s new patent pending toughened steel hinge mechanism, which leaves the bolt able to be operated at all times.

This rifle, specifically designed for counter-terror operations in urban and jungle environments, can be folded to be carried in a motorcycle pannier to be infiltrated discreetly into the target area.

Rangemaster also announced the expansion of its barrel manufacturing capability, with the recent acquisition of state-of- the-art machinery from the USA and Germany. This will allow the company to produce barrels to match or better the high standards of well-known brands from those countries. ‘‘We have also taken delivery of our own nitriding furnace, which will enable us to provide rock hard finishes to our existing RPA components,’’ said Markham.
