To say Nosler is excited about their latest rifle offering would be a huge understatement. The new NoslerCustom Model 48 Legacy Rifle was designed directly from the mind of Nosler founder, John A. Nosler and captures the essence of the traditional bolt action rifle with a figured American black-walnut stock and engraved floor plate.
Built for the hunter who demands a high level of performance and functionality, the Legacy also appeals to those who appreciate the aesthetic appeal of a quality wood stock. This rifle weighs between 7 ¼ – 8 ¼ pounds and delivers guaranteed ¾” or better, three-shot groups at 100 yards using Nosler’s Trophy Grade™ ammunition .
To achieve the highest level of accuracy, the smooth yet robust Model 48 action is glass-pillar bedded and mated to a hand-lapped, free-floating 24″ match grade chrome moly barrel that has been custom chambered for each cartridge. Nosler’s proprietary push-feed action features a 2-position safety and a trigger set to a crisp 3 lb. let-off. The Legacy Rifle integrates a midnight colored, CERAKOTE™ finish on all exterior metals along with the unique MicroSlickÔ coating on interior metal surfaces such as inside the bolt body, firing pin, and firing pin spring for maximum corrosion and wear-resistance.
Combined with the modern amenities listed above, the classic-styled, select American black-walnut stock features a shadow-line cheekpiece for comfort and fit, inletted sling swivel studs, and 20 l.p.i. point-pattern checkering for sure grip.
