In a move that long-range fans will love and reminds the rest of us that not all things tactical need to be semi-auto and begin with the initials “AR,” Rock River Arms has introduced a new precision rifle designed for extreme long-range accuracy.
The new RRA XM24 Tactical is built to meet the performance requirements of defense professionals and special tactics members and comes in two of the top-performing long-range calibers— the .308 Win. and the .338 Lapua. Designed around MDT’s ESS nonfolding chassis to provide maximum rigidity, the XM24 Tactical incorporates 26-inch heavy-contour stainless steel barrels that have been air-gauged for maximum bore precision, cryo-treated for molecular stability and predictable harmonics and treated with a black matte nitride finish to enhance concealment and provide sustained protection from the elements on the metal surfaces. Bullet stabilization comes from 1:10 (.308 Win.) and 1:9.5 (.338 Lapua) twist rates.
The barrels attach to the 700-style receiver via a barrel nut system that delivers solid and precise fit and alignment. A crow-foot wrench is included with the rifle for barrel nut removal and installation.
Other performance enhancing features of the XM24 include an oversized bolt handle and single-stage TriggerTech Primary trigger system to provide precision trigger operation. Optic mounting is made easy with the included 20 MOA base scope rail. The rifle’s chamber is fed from a single-stack 5-round detachable box mag.
The precision, mission-deployable rifle comes with a guaranteed accuracy potential of less than ½ MOA when using premium ammunition.
The overall weight of the XM24 is 13.2 pounds, and the rifle measures 46.25 inches long. Rock River Arms has set the MSRP for the RRA XM24 Tactical at $5,265. For more details, visit RockRiverArms.com.
