Feistritz, Austria (March 2017) – Ritter & Stark GmbH, an Austrian-based firearms design and manufacturing company, as exhibitors at the IWA Outdoor Classics 2017, March 3 – 6, in Nuremberg, Germany will unveil the new SLX series multi-caliber, short-action precision rifle.
Based on Ritter & Stark’s first product offering, the SX-1, R&S next developed a short-action version, weighing less and shorter in length. The SLX series is first available in .308 Win./ 7.62×51 NATO (SLX-308). Additional calibers .260 Rem., and 6.5 Creedmoor will be available at a later date.
The SLX-308 is designed and manufactured to meet the most demanding requirements for any serious shooter. Using only the most advanced materials, R&S’s state-of-the-art precision CNC manufacturing facility produces some of world’s most reliable and accurate shooting systems. Applying the latest in coating technologies, the SLX-308 is protected from punishing environments and will continue to deliver unsurpassed performance shot after shot.
The SLX-308 is built on a fully adjustable stock (length, cheekpiece height and recoil pad height) with a NATO-STANAG 4694 (MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny) rail for a monopod attachment. An R&S folding stock mechanism (optional) can also be installed to fold left or right and also locked in a folded position. Complete with a foreend that facilitates heat dissipation quickly, the SLX-308 foreend also allows for the option of a rail adaptor to minimize weight while adding an area for M-LOK accessory mounted systems. A fully-adjustable, two-stage Remington 700 standard compatible trigger comes standard and can be set to the operator’s preferences. The SLX-308 was also designed to use standard AR-15 pistol grips (without beavertail) and comes with a detachable PMAG® 10 AR/M4 Gen M3™ high capacity polymer mags (10-rd.)
The barrel, at the center of Ritter & Stark’s superior accuracy, undergoes a proprietary rifling process ensuring uniformity throughout the production series. The result is unsurpassed accuracy and an extended barrel life. Integrated locking lugs on the monolithic barrel design, guarantee superior precision throughout the rifle’s lifespan.
For the professional military, security, police officer, hunter or target shooter, the most important attribute of a rifle is accuracy and Ritter & Stark delivers. Their barrels are guaranteed 100 percent accurate to at least 0.5 MOA for an industry leading 5,000 rounds in .308Win and .260 Rem. and 6.5 Creedmoor. Ritter & Stark’s rifles’ accuracy is factory proven to be a consistent 0.5 MOA with 3‐round groups or better using factory match grade ammunition.
