The highly advanced, new generation AX308 bolt action sniper rifle from Accuracy International is based on the DNA of the battle proven AW series. Inheriting the toughness, reliability, superb accuracy and ease of maintenance of it’s celebrated predecessor, the AX action retains the same flat-bottom design with a compact and reliable double stack 10-round magazine. Butt pad: fixed bolt-on pad with 10mm (0.4") and 20mm (0.8") spacers are fitted as standard. Additional spacers are available to customize the length of pull. Further adjustment is possible with the optional target adjustable butt plate or quick adjust butt plate in conjunction with the quick adjust cheekpiece. Adjustable Cheekpiece: The standard adjustablecheekpiece adjusts left/right as well as for height to obtain optimum cheek position when using night vision equipment or telescopic sights with large objective lenses. A spring loaded quick adjust cheekpiece is also available in conjunction with the quick adjust butt plate. Butt spike: The optional extendable butt spike enables the user to observe the target area for extended periods with minimal fatigue. Designed with quick and fine adjustment to a maximum extended length of 115mm (4.5"). New chassis design: The new chassis design greatly improves the user’s ability to carry and move with the rifle. A shorter rear stock makes shooting easier in bulky body armour. New chassis design: Folding chassisFor use when travelling in vehicles or for parachute insertions, this option reduces overall length by 210mm (8") when folded and adds 0.2kg (0.4lb). Locked in the folded position for security and the avoidance of noise, the stock is released by pulling firmly on the butt. The wear compensated hinge ensures total rigidity in the extended position. Sling points: Two sling attachment points are mounted on each side as standard. The two forward sling points can be moved according to userpreference. Available as standard AI sling points or flush cups. Bonded action: Superior to a traditional action/stock interface, the proprietary high grade steel flat bottom action is permanently bonded and bolted to the chassis. Coupled with a full width machined-in recoil lug, this totally rigid assembly ensures zero is maintained in all conditions. Trigger assembly: Fitted as standard with adjustable pull weights of 1.5-2.0kg (3.3-4.4lb), the battle proven two stage mechanism allows a large sear engagement to be maintained until the first stage is taken up. A new trigger shoe, adjustable fore and aft by 13mm (0.5") is optional. The assembly is easily removed for cleaning by undoing the two socket head cap screws. SafetymechanismThe rifle 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. BoltThe 20mm (0.75") diameter steel close fitting bolt features an integral short throwbolt 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. The action picatinny rail provides a standard interface for many optical systems. Available in 0 moa, 20 moa and 30 moa to be matched with full length picatinny rail on forend rail system. New 10 round magazine, double row magazine is surface treated to deliver low friction and high corrosion resistance for optimal feeding, single row port loading, and minimal projection. The cut-away aperture allows magazine change without raising the butt of the rifle. Ambidextrous magazine release. Magazine falls free when magazine catch is actuated. Forend mounting system: Free floating tube forend,406mm (16") or 330mm (13") 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. Full length picatinny rails in 0 moa, 20 moa or 30 moa options to match the action rail.
