The Stag Pursuit Bolt Action Rifle is the start of a new line of user customizable lightweight precision hunting rifles for the sportsman who is in pursuit of the next challenge. With a completely custom 700-pattern design and a tri-lug bolt the rifle features an incredibly smooth action and 60-degree throw for lightning-quick follow-up. The chassis is a three-part modular design comprised of magnesium alloy, glass filled polymer and aluminum, enabling future modifications and customization with new stocks and handguards that will completely change the look and application of the rifle.
