Proof Research, a leader in precision rifle barrel manufacturing, is expanding its line of bolt-action rifles with the new Conviction Ti. The Conviction Ti is a lightweight tactical rifle built for long-range shooting.

Depending on the configuration, the Conviction Ti can weigh as little as 6 pounds, 6 ounces and maxes out at a still-svelte 8 pounds, 2 ounces. Proof Research offers the rifle in a wide variety of chamberings from 6mm Creedmoor to .300 Remington Ultra Magnum, including popular cartridges like 6.5mm Creedmoor and .308 Winchester.

Built on a titanium receiver with a carbon fiber stock and carbon fiber barrel, the Conviction Ti doesn’t sacrifice accuracy in order to achieve its light weight. Proof guarantees sub-half MOA accuracy with their rifles with target ammo. The receiver is available in left- and right-handed actions.

“The Conviction Ti’s lightweight carbon fiber stock and barrel are made with cutting-edge polymer technologies, coupled with a titanium receiver that is lighter than steel but even stronger than high-strength steel,” said Proof Research in their announcement. “The Conviction Ti is a superior rifle for consistent, long-range performance in the toughest environments.”

The tactical stock has a squared-off forend for an extended forward mount and uses an aggressively down-turned pistol grip. It has an adjustable cheekpiece to work with a wide range of scopes and scope mounts and seven sling mounting points, including three studs for hook slings and bipod and quick-detach sling sockets front and rear on both sides of the stock.

The receiver features an integral scope rail and the rifle comes with an adjustable TriggerTech trigger and Pachymayr recoil pad. Default stock color options include black, green and brown granite and other camo options are available including flat dark earth, urban black and grey, maritime blue and grey, jungle, desert and pink cotton candy camouflage.

The standard Conviction Ti barrel length is 24 inches, but Proof will custom-build rifles with barrels from 20 to 28 inches long. The Conviction Ti uses a Sendero-profile barrel across the board.

The Conviction Ti is a featherweight, extremely accurate rifle with a practical-tactical appeal, at a price. Proof Research products are top-flight and the sticker reflects the quality. Pricing for the Conviction Ti starts at $8,499 before options.

    Let’s remember that the goal of the Demorats is a woman in the White House. The quickest way to do that is a woman vice president with a dead president. So somebody already has a lifetime NRA membership so they look right and a Chinese SKS from Classic Firearms. Just like me. So this guy is positioned to shot Biden and swear he’s a conservative hothead malitia member to take the blame then he will be pardoned by Amanda, in all her wisdom. The FBI should check how much life insurance his wife has bought recently. Might give a hint.

    All the exotics are coming down to us now.
    Not everyone could afford a car at one time. Now firearms in Titanium, and ‘Organic’ materials! Just plain cool!

    My ’03 Springfield gets me my deer and elk every season. I don’t need more.

      I agree 100%. I don’t shoot anything more than a few hundred wards max and my venerable old 1946 Model 70 30-06 is perfect!

    A machinist and understand the amount of thought and work into a part. But also the pricing when it comes to something that’s precise. Still, with $9,000 I can buy a couple Tikkas and and really beef up my REM 700p to make it look worth $9000. And still get some change back. My REM has been pretty damn accurate. And just like my Ford, I wouldn’t give a rat’s behind if I put a scratch on it. Both have done what I needed them to do? Why go for an Aston Martin when I have a F150. Prices are worlds apart, but both still a Ford.

    First of all you can by a lone peak titanium action for about 16 or 1,700 bucks a proof barrel, a manners stock for almost half of that. Now I’m sure it’s a nice rifle but not worth 9 grand. Get real! How many guys are actually running proof stocks in PRS????? Probably not many. I use proof barrels, but my fully custom chassis, barrel and action with. $3500 scope still comes in less than they’re rifle. It shoot about a 1/4 moa. So nope not me unless you come off about 3 Grand.

    What is ‘puting’?

  • Slim August 14, 2020, 4:28 am

    SEVEN POUNDS and it costs NINE GRAND?! HOLLY MOLLY!!!!! I built an AR and it weighs six and a half pounds and it can shoot 900 plus round a minute and cost me way less than two grand ashtrays with all upgraded parts like hydraulic buffer, superlative arms piston set up, and so on. So I don’t get how they made a gun out of carbon fiber and titanium and it weighs so much! Nine grand… No way even if I was filthy rich and felt like throwing away money including but it! Sad, people will!

      Titanium weighs more than aluminum.
