Ritter & Stark will exhibit the SX-1 Modular Tactical Rifle and the SLX Series model SLX-308 at Booth #409 at Waffen-Sammlerbörse in Lucerne, Switzerland, March 24 – 26, 2017.
Feistritz, Austria (March 2017) – Ritter & Stark GmbH, an Austrian-based firearms design and manufacturing company, will be exhibiting the SX-1 Modular Tactical Rifle (MTR) and the SLX Series model SLX-308 at Booth #409 at Waffen-Sammlerbörse in Lucerne, Switzerland, March 24 – 26, 2017. The Waffen-Sammlerbörse is the oldest gun show in Switzerland and one of the most important in Europe, drawing in over 10,000 visitors.
At Ritter & Stark the world’s top firearms engineers and designers have used the latest manufacturing processes and most technologically advanced materials to create the SX-1 MTR and the SLX Series rifles.
The SX-1 MTR can quickly and easily change calibers between a .308 Win, .300 Win Magnum and a .338 Lapua Magnum. The MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail is installed directly on the barrel, allowing the user to interchange barrels with pre-set scopes without a loss of zero. The patented caliber conversion system assures that the barrel is precisely positioned in the machined aluminum receiver, allowing for a greater area of contact, resulting in increased stability. The bolt also locks directly into the barrel breech which gives the rifles unprecedented accuracy. The rifles are compatible with AR-15 pistol grips and comes with a fully-adjustable, standard two-stage Remington 700 compatible trigger, allowing the operator to customize the grip and trigger to his preference. The buttstock is fully adjustable with the height and angle of the cheek piece, length of pull and recoil pad are all also capable of being fully adjusted. The SX-1 MTR can also utilize aftermarket AR-15 type buttstocks for a personalized fit.
Ritter & Stark’s newest offering is the SLX Series, a short-action version of the SX-1, but lighter and shorter in length. The first model available in the series is the SLX-308/7.62×51 NATO. In the following months, Ritter & Stark will also offer the SLX in .260 Remington and 6.5 Creedmoor. Change calibers simply by changing the barrel only. The SLX series buttstock is fully adjustable and an R&S folding stock mechanism (optional) can be installed allowing the buttstock to fold left or right and allow it to be locked folded. Featuring a fully adjustable, standard 2-stage Remington 700 compatible trigger and a heat dissipating foreend (option rail adaptor minimizing weight and allowing for M-LOK accessories to be mounted), the SLX-308 can also use standard AR-15 pistol grips (no beavertail). The SLX series comes with detachable PMAG® 10 AR/M4 Gen M3™ high capacity polymer mags (10-rd.)
One of the secrets to Ritter & Stark’s accuracy is its unique barrel production. No other barrel maker in the world manufacturers their barrels like Ritter & Stark. The rifling is processed in a CNC-controlled electrochemical machine. This avoids the transmission of thermal effects and mechanical stress to the material. Furthermore, this process allows Ritter & Stark to produce barrels with unique uniformity and within tolerance zones that were not possible in serial production before.
Ritter & Stark barrels are guaranteed to perform for at least 2,000 to 5,000 rounds, depending upon caliber, until any noticeable degradation in accuracy occurs. Every barrel is tested at the factory and can achieve 0.5 MOA with 3-round groups or better using factory match grade ammunition.
