Building on their popular line of ammunition and growing line of firearms, Nosler adds a new rifle to the list. The Nosler Model 21 Rifle utilizes premium components for a feature-rich, lightweight production firearm, providing packable reliability on the hunt.
Nosler Model 21 Rifle
The Nosler Model 21 builds on a carbon fiber composite stock and, as a result, is a lightweight 7 pounds. Nestled in the lightweight stock is Nosler’s new Model 21 action, designed in collaboration with Mack Brothers. The Model 21 action builds on the brother’s popular EVO action, coupled with Nosler-engineered customizations.
The custom engineering in the action is noticeable throughout, including the spiral fluted, one piece, Nitride coated 4340 Chrome Moly steel bolt. Consequently, the fluting on the bolt aids in weight reduction and also helps prevent jamming in sandy, dirty environments. Additionally, the practical design of the M16-style extractor and fire control group feature tool-less takedown.
The single stage TriggerTech Field model trigger features a top safety and user adjustable pull weight of 2.5-5 pounds. For this reason, the Nosler Model 21 rifle has a crisp, user defined feel. The Shilen match grade barrel features a threaded muzzle (1/2-28 or 5/8-24 Tpi) for suppressor adaptation and also includes a knurled thread protector. Adding to the custom feel, the barrel is hand lapped for an overall smooth bore enhancement.
Ensuring something for everyone, the Model 21 is available 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.
“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.”
The Nosler Model 21 Rifle is available now, with an MSRP of $2,495.00. For more info, please visit Nosler.com.
