AERO Precision unveiled two entirely new additions to their lineup at SHOT 2022. Announced for the first time was the Lahar 30 silencer, and A700 bolt action rifle. While the silencer was on display at range day I got my first look at the A700 on the SHOT show floor today.
[SHOT 2022] AERO Precision Lahar-30 Silencer and A700 Rifle
Lahar 30 SilencerAERO was keen to show off not one, not two, but three new versions of their Lahar 30 silencer (Lahar 30 L pictured above). These were shown on available to shoot on AERO’s AR-15 and AR-10 pattern rifles during range day in a direct thread configuration. The three variants include a 4 baffle K model, 6 baffle standard model, and 9 baffle L model pictured above. Additionally, a new QD system called Mantle is being released that attaches to AERO’s proprietary muzzle brake. So the Lahar 30 will come in a direct thread and QD configuration to the market. For anyone who’s already invested in a different mounting system, you need not worry. The rear of the silencer will accept any industry-standard 1.375×24 mounting option. The Lahar 30 is manufactured using a blend of both 17-4 Stainless and Inconel. All of these cans will be both full-auto and 300WinMag rated. AERO expects the MSRP on the Lahar 30 to be around ~$800-900 with a release date of late Q2 or early Q3.
A700 RifleIn addition to the silencers, AERO also unveiled their new A700 bolt action rifle. The design uses a Savage small shape barrel interface in order to use pre-fit barrels already on the market The bolt face is designed to deal with everything from a 6mm Creedmoor all the way up to a 7mm SAUM, and features a long ejection port to accommodate short-action magnum cartridges. Three different bolt faces will be available including a standard, medium, and magnum.
This has all been built around a new chassis that’s been designed from the ground up.These chassis will be fully customizable to include different mounts but come with features like a toolless comb height and length of pull adjustments. Other options like an NVG bridge are available as well to customize the rifle even further.
The system will be offered as action, barreled action, and eventually as a complete rifle. Price is yet to be determined, but the action will be sub $1,000 with the chassis coming in at sub $1,100. The release date is still to be determined, but we look forward to another option for the precision bolt gun market.
A special thank you to the AERO staff for their help answering my questions on the floor and at range day. For more information on the bolt gun check out the TFBtv video below.
