The NULA™ bolt action rifle provides an advantage for any hunter due to its lightweight design and extreme accuracy, giving hunters confidence that their shot will be on target every time. The lightweight construction of this rifle makes it easy to maneuver in the field. Whether you’re hunting big game or small varmints, this bolt action rifle provides the accuracy and dependability needed to get your trophy quickly and cleanly.

This top-of-the-line rifle boasts many premium features that experienced hunters will appreciate, including a precision Wilson Combat 416R stainless honed and double stress relieved button rifled barrel, a Timney Elite Hunter trigger that offers a smooth 2.75 to 3.25-pound trigger pull, and a receiver fully machined and EDM cut from 4140 bar stock. All are encased in a unique ultra-lightweight carbon fiber stock that includes reinforced receiver walls for added strength without adding weight.
