NRA Gun of the Week: Strasser RS 14 Evolution Tahr Bolt-Action Rifle

For target-shooting, hunting and military utility, the bolt-action rifle has earned its rank. Indicative of the design, most bolt-actions require a rotating bolt with locking lugs that, in order to withdraw from battery, must index accordingly. Enter Strasser and its RS14 Evolution Tahr rifle. Built on the premise of the bolt-action, the RS14 Evolution series utilizes a radial element bolt that requires zero rotation of the body for function; it is a straight-pull design. Among other design features is the capacity to quickly exchange barrels and bolt-face types. Machined from aluminum alloy and wrapped in laminated wood, this Tahr model features a detachable box magazine and integral Picatinny rail for optics. Watch our NRA Gun of the Week video to learn more about this fast-to-operate rifle imported from Austria.
