Accuracy International rifles are shot and function tested before leaving the factory. The highly advanced, new generation AX308 bolt action sniper rifle from Accuracy International is based on the DNA of the battle proven AW series and inheriting the toughness, reliability, superb accuracy and ease of maintenance of it's celebrated predecessor. Simply perfection.
This Accuracy International Rifle is fitted with a target buttpad and Adjustable cheekpice which adjusts left/ right as well as for height to allow for night vision equipment or telescopic sights with large objective lenses. An ergonomically advanced pistol grip stock and new external stock design greatly improves the user’s ability to carry and move with the rifle. This rifle has a folding stock. Folded for transportation, reducing overall length by 235mm (9.25") and adding 0.2kg (0.4lb). The stock locks positively in the folded position for security and the avoidance of noise. In the extended position, built-in wear compensation ensures total rigidity. A shorter rear stock makes shooting easier in bulky body armour. Two sling loop attachment points are mounted on each side as standard. The two forward sling points can be moved according to user preference. Standard AI Flush Cups are installed on this AX rifle.
The AI AX adjustableTrigger assembly with pull weights of 1.5-2.0kg (3.3-4.4lb). It is a battle proven two stage mechanism which allows a large sear engagement to be maintained until the first stage is taken up. The assembly is easily removed for cleaning by undoing the two socket head cap screws.
The Accuracy International AX safety mechanism has a three position safety mechanism. Position 1 (rear) blocks the firing pin and locks the bolt in the closed position. Position 2 (mid) blocks the firing pin, but allows the bolt to be operated so a live round may be safely removed from the chamber. Position 3 (forward) allows the weapon to be fired. The safety will only operate when the bolt is cocked.
The 20mm (0.75") diameter steel close fitting bolt features an integral short throw bolt handle (60°) with large bolt knob which lies close to the stockside just above the trigger to minimise movement of the user’s hand. The bolt can be field stripped without tools for cleaning. A new strengthened design ensures safety in the most extreme environments. It is permanently bonded and bolted to the stiff aluminium chassis to eliminate movement, ensuring that zero will be maintained.
The 20 moa taper Picatinny rail is pinned and screwed to the action providing a standard interface for many optical systems. The match grade Bartlein 5R barrel is threaded deep into the action with a large diameter thread. The magazine is surface toughened, and finished with a multi-part anti-corrosive, anti-friction coating, the compact 10-round double row, military grade steel magazine combined with the revised chassis design makes loading faster and more positive without lifting the rifle.
The forend rail system is a free floating tube forend 16" long featuring a keyhole slot system for quickly and securely attaching modular rail sections on to which a virtually unlimited variety of optical, ranging, support and carry options can be fitted.
