New From Aero Precision, The Solus Bolt Action Rifle! [SHOT Show 2023]


Well known for their AR-15 rifles, Aero Precision is officially in the bolt action rifle game as of today! The Solus is a Remington 700 pattern rifle that uses Savage pattern small shank barrels or Zermatt Arms pre-fit shouldered barrels and AICS pattern magazines, but the features and cool stuff don’t stop there.

Aero is offering this as a complete competition rifle using an Aero Precision chassis or a less expensive option using a KRG chassis, with more models on their way. Both use TriggerTech triggers. 

You can also get the Solus as a stripped .478 Bolt Face short action or the chassis as a standalone chassis.

Turnkey options and DIY options give you the flexibility to choose exactly what you want.

We’ve only gotten to shoot the Solus a couple of times, but we’ve been very impressed so far. Great bolt lift, great chassis, great options. 

Stripped actions are $900 MSRP, chassis is $800 MSRP, with the complete competition rifle coming in at $2,000 and the Solus Bravo at $1,625. 

The only caliber offered is 6.5 Creedmoor, but more caliber options are coming very soon. 

We’ll have a complete review in the works, so check back for a ton more information when that drops!
