Our Research & Development department were given the brief; utilize the finest and most precise design and manufacturing assets available. The R&D team has at their disposal the most technologically advanced precision engineering tools to produce the finest components for our rifles, thus ensuring all the pivotal rifle components are produced in-house, under their strict supervision. This means that virtually everything has been taken into account before bringing the rifle to the market, including extensive testing for performance, accuracy, reliability, and of course, fit and finish. Our advanced machinery park was specially designed and supplied by the best engineering companies from all over the world. With this technology, Ritter & Stark is now capable of making and producing space-age levels of quality and precision parts. In addition, the SX-1 MTR accuracy level achievements are a result of our patented rifling process. Through extensive research and testing we have patented the ECM (Electrochemical Machining) barrel rifling process. Photo credit: Instagram account @ritterstark We insist on the highest levels of material selection, manufacturing processes, and surface treatments in every rifle to ensure your rifle will deliver time and time again. Our Quality Control procedures have taken that expertise to a new level. For the shooter, this means that every rifle we manufacture can achieve 0.5 MOA 3-round groups or better with factory match grade ammunition. There is no other acceptable outcome. All rifles are tested in our indoor firing range at the factory. Unlike other precision rifles, no matter the caliber, our barrels are guaranteed to last at least 5,000 rounds for .308Win and .338LM, and 2,000 rounds for .300WM before noticing any degradation in accuracy.
