About Product

The RX Helix Explorer is a straight-pull design that retains all the strength and safety of a rotary bolt head with seven locking lugs as well as a fully enclosed, hard-anodized-aluminum action housing. The linear motion of the bolt handle is transmitted to the bolt head in a two-to-one ratio by way of an innovative transmission gearing system within the action, providing for smooth and fast cycling without the rotational or tipping movement found on other straight-pull bolt-action rifles. The linear-bolt-action system of the RX Helix Explorer cycles extraordinarily fast, allowing more time for precise aiming and accurate follow-up shots. Since the RX Helix Explorer employs a closed action, the bolt body doesn’t travel outside that action, therefore the shooter can maintain cheekweld with eyes constantly on the target throughout the the bolt cycle. The bolt handle is also exceptionally easy to manipulate for left-handed shooters, as they can maintain cheekweld with the rear hand on the grip, while using the support hand to cycle the action. The RX Helix Explorer features a tang-mounted manual-cocking lever and a direct-trigger system. The patented linkage-driven-hammer system provides maximum ignition energy for flawless operation as well as added confidence when hunting dangerous game. A true takedown rifle to its roots, the RX Helix Explorer can be dismantled almost effortlessly in a matter of seconds without any tools for cleaning or transportation. The universal action length covers calibers from .222 Rem. to .300 Win. Mag., and changing calibers takes less than a minute with the appropriate barrel, bolt and magazine. Weaver rails are integrated into the action, and fast-acquisition iron sights with three-dot rear and one-dot front fiber-optic inserts are standard
