TFB’swrote about Kinetic Research Group’s new SOTIC Precision Rifle at the beginning of the year, when it was shown at SHOT Show.
After the usual delays the SOTIC rifle is now online for ordering and delivery (since spring time they claim).
Below: The basic rifle, no folding stock.
The Mission for the SOTIC rifle is to merge premium components together with the goal of succeeding at long range shooting.
If you want to buy a similar chassis for your rifle, the closest would most likely be the Whiskey-3 (Generation 6).
The trigger is multi-adjustable 2-stage.
