Savage Impulse Straight-Pull Rifle

Savage’s new Impulse series of straight-pull bolt rifles is the first American-designed and crafted straight-pull centerfire rifle. The new Impulse features an innovative Hexlock bolt-locking mechanism with six spherical bearings that move radially outward into a ring in the barrel extension, thereby locking the bolt in place. That barrel extension is held in the receiver assembly by four cross-bolts on the lower front section. Ahead of the barrel extension is a conventional recoil lug and a familiar Savage barrel nut.

GunMag Warehouse 2021 rifles new manufacturer SHOT Show

GunMag Warehouse 2021 rifles new manufacturer SHOT ShowA firearms magazine vendor, GunMagWarehouse (GMWH), has compiled one of the most comprehensive online guides to new-for-2021 guns and gear. If you are looking for new firearms and accessories this is a good place to start. You’ll find plenty of images plus videos showing important new rifles such as Savage’s new Straight-Pull Impulse, featured above.

Savage Impulse Straight-Pull Rifle

Savage Arms has just introduced the new Impulse series of straight-pull bolt rifles. This is the first American-designed and crafted straight-pull centerfire rifle. The new Impulse features an innovative Hexlock bolt-locking mechanism with six spherical bearings that move radially outward into a ring in the barrel extension, thereby locking the bolt in place. That barrel extension is held in the receiver assembly by four cross-bolts on the lower front section. Ahead of the barrel extension is a conventional recoil lug and a familiar Savage barrel nut.

Savage Impulse Straight-Pull Rifle — Action Operation

Savage claims the new system offers the cycling speed of a semi-auto, with the accuracy of a bolt-action. There have been some initial field tests, and it looks like the performance has been good. However, based on the videos that Savage has posted, the cycling of the Impulse’s straight-pull bolt does not seem to be as smooth as some European straight-pulls, such as the Blaser R8, Merkel RX Helix, and Strasser RS 14.

Accuracy International AT-X Tactical Rifle

Accuracy International AI AT-X tactical rifle

The new AI AT-X rifle is marketed as a PRS/NRL competition rifle, but it can also server admirably as a military sniper rifle. As teste, this AT-X is chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and features a 24″ barrel with a 1:8″ twist. If the barreled action looks familiar, that’s because it’s the same proven action found on AI’s popular AT and AX models.

Uberti USA Courteney Lever Stalking Rifle

Uberti USA courteney stalking rifle lever gun

Uberti USA offers the 1885 Courteney Stalking Rifle. Named after the celebrated English hunter, explorer and naturalist Courteney Selous (1851-1917), this rifle gives today’s shooter the looks, feel, and usability of the turn-of-the-century British single-shots that were first taken to the British colonies—but at a fraction of the cost. The 1885 Courteney is built on the ultra-strong 1885 action. It is offered in 45/70 as well at the classic .303 British cartridge — the most used caliber in the British Empire. The action has a quarter-rib slotted for Weaver rings with a fully-adjustable shallow-V rear sight. It also comes with a traditional hooded ramp front sight and barrel-mounted sling-swivel.

Colt C20 Sniper Rifle for Canadian Military

Uberti USA courteney stalking rifle lever gun

Colt Canada’s C20, 7.62×51 NATO, Semi-Automatic Sniper Weapon was developed to support the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) requirement for an Intermediate Sniper Weapon. The Canadian army will receive the new C20 sniper rifle in the 7.62 NATO caliber produced by Colt Canada to replace the C8 used by sniper teams. According to Canadian military sources, the new C20 should be more accurate and an improvement over the current C8 used by Canadian soldiers.
