NRA Gun of the Week: Nosler M48 Bolt-Action Handgun

Following the release of its Model 48 bolt-action rifle line, Nosler has entered the single-shot pistol market with its M48 Custom Handgun. Resting in a CNC-machined-aluminum chassis, this M48 custom bolt-action handgun features a 15” stainless steel barrel, adjustable trigger and Cerakote coatings for protection in the harshest environments. Indicative of the Model 48 design, this bolt-action handgun chambered for 22 Nosler utilizes a long-claw extractor and plunger-style ejector to ensure reliability.
