Nosler Debuts Model 21 Rifle
Nosler has introduced the all-new Model 21 rifle to the company’s growing line of firearms. The new Model 21 weighs in at roughly seven pounds depending on chambering, making it a packable precision platform for any hunt.
At the heart of the rifle is Nosler’s new Model 21 action, designed in collaboration with Mack Brothers. The newly designed Model 21 blends the best features of the Mack Brother’s popular Evo action with unique Nosler-engineered customizations.
Blueprinted on advanced wire EDM equipment, the Model 21 action was designed to deliver performance in a user-friendly platform with several built-in custom features throughout. Among these features is a spiral fluted, one-piece, Nitride-coated bolt made of 4340 Chrome Moly steel. In addition to a sleek aesthetic and smooth action, the fluted design provides a reduction in weight and helps channel debris, preventing the bolt from jamming in environments where dirt and sand is an issue. In line with the M21 action’s practical design philosophy, the bolt’s upgraded M16-style extractor and fire control group feature tool-less takedown.
“It’s been nearly two decades since we introduced the very first Nosler rifle on our popular Model 48 platform” said John Nosler, president of Nosler Inc. “From day one, we set out to produce some of the most reliable firearms in the industry and our new Model 21 is no exception. This new firearm marks an exciting expansion of the Nosler rifle brand, offering an economical option that bridges the gap between standard production assembly rifles and feature-rich customized builds.”
A crisp, single-stage TriggerTech Field model trigger, featuring a user-adjustable pull weight of 2.5-5 pounds and top safety is standard from the factory. A Shilen match-grade barrel with a threaded muzzle is hand lapped for the ultimate in bore smoothness, while the lightweight synthetic carbon-fiber stock shaves weight off the complete build and provides durability.
The all-new Model 21 rifle retails for $2,495 and will be released in popular chamberings including .22 Nosler, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, .26 Nosler, .27 Nosler, .280 Ackley Improved, .28 Nosler, .308 Win., .300 Win. Mag., .30 Nosler, .33 Nosler and .375 H&H Magnum. For more information, visit nosler.com.
