Phoenix Weaponry just announced a new line of custom bolt-action rifles designed to be as quiet as they are accurate. These integrally suppressed rifles are available in just about every long action cartridge with .338-06 A-Square as default.
Chambered for .338-06 these guns suppress well as the cartridge makes efficient use of its powder charge. Of course, Phoenix Weaponry is happy to build their suppressed hunting rifles in any caliber(s) customers request.
These guns blur lines between production and custom rifles. While Phoenix Weaponry has a solid standard they make they will also take personal orders that incorporate individual requests and needs.
“This is your opportunity to shoot the heavy loads and high velocities in the field without paying the price with your hearing,” says Phoenix. “None of us like spending the next three days wondering if there is a phone ringing somewhere.”
The new rifle series features a Remington 700-pattern action with a Bell and Carlson stock. The stocks are inlet and glass-bedded for repeatable accuracy shot after shot.
Each gun is fitted with a 24-inch air-gauged Douglas barrel with an integral titanium suppressor core and sleeve. This keeps the overall weight, without an optic, down to just under 8 pounds. That works out to a weight of around 10 pounds or less in the field, loaded with a scope mounted.
Lightweight, integrally suppressed rifles like these aren’t just portable, they’re easy to shoot. A lot of guns meant to be carried all day are hard on the shoulder. Suppressors — integral suppressors especially — make the sharpest shooters softies. This isn’t just for comfort, it also makes follow-up shots that much easier if necessary.
