JUST REDUCED as new test fired only Nosler Model 48 rifle in 300 WSM. Comes with matching mounts and rings but does NOT include scope. Rifle has been broken in properly with about 30 rounds and shoots 180 Accubonds in less than 1/2 inch without any trouble. Feeds like a dream. I have orginal box and all paperwork that came with the rifle. The NoslerCustom Model 48 is built on the same action as our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Edition Custom rifles—but in a round-top version that accepts standard scope mounting bases*. Nosler’s proprietary push-feed action features a 3-position safety and Timney adjustable trigger set to a crisp, 3 lb. let-off. The Model 48 offers exceptional precision and reliable performance. The action features classic Ted Blackburn-style, one-piece bottom metal and trigger guard. To achieve the highest level of accuracy, the Model 48 action is mated to a hand-lapped, 24” match grade stainless barrel that has been custom chambered for the high performance Winchester Short Magnum cartridge. A true all-weather rifle, the Model 48 integrates the unique MicroSlick™ Coating on interior metal surfaces, including inside the bolt body, on the firing pin, and firing pin spring for maximum corrosion and wear-resistance, even with extensive dry firing.Engineered as much for 20-mile days as it is for 300-yard shots, the NoslerCustom ultra-lightweight stock is built to handle the extremes, yet still deliver a firm platform for the barreled action. This classic-styled rifle stock is built entirely of Kevlar composites for ruggedness and maximum weight savings. The stock’s durable, deep onyx gray finish complements the handsome, sniper-gray CERAKOTE™ coating on the barrel and action. Stock includes recoil pad and sling swivel studs. The Model 48 is an authentic super gun, the creation of fanatic hunters who happen to be mechanically inclined rather than mechanical engineers who hunt once in a while if the weather isn't too bad. Named for the year (1948) in which John Nosler the elder began making his dual-cored bullets, it costs $2,595. For all that money, you get a firearm that is the absolute cutting edge of advanced hunting riflery. There is nothing you can do to the Model 48 to make it any better. It is very light—61/2 pounds—and guaranteed to shoot sub-minute-of-angle groups. The one F&S tested did just that. Every metal part of it is coated: CeraKote on the exterior surfaces and MicroSlick on the interiors. The trigger, made by Timney, is set at 3 pounds. Not one iota of extra steel goes into this rifle, which is built around Nosler's own push-feed action. All nonfunctional weight was boiled out at the gun's inception. And the odd thing is, it's an absolute bargain. To get its equivalent you'd have to pay a custom gunmaker $500 to $2,000 more, and wait anywhere from six months to a year or longer.
Someone wake up check the price.
