Kelbly's Inc. is known for its custom bolt-action rifles and actions, and now for 2022, introduces its new Nanook MG bolt-action rifle. Designed specifically for long-range hunting, the Nanook MG features Kelbly's lightweight Nanook action. This long action only weighs only 26.5 ozs. and is machined from a single piece of billet steel, including the segmented 35 m.o.a. Picatinny rails on top of the receiver.

The bolt is also machined from a single piece of steel, and features a bolt handle made from aluminum to cut down on overall weight. The Nanook MG comes with a Preferred Barrel Blanks 26" carbon-fiber barrel, topped off with a self-timing Kelbly Klaw brake fitted to the threaded muzzle. The barrels are offered in the chamberings of .300 PRC with a 1:10" twist, .300 Norma Mag. with a 1:9" twist, and .338 Lapua Mag. with a 1:10" twist rate.

These barreled actions are bedded to XLR Element 4.0 MG chassis systems, which includes handy features including M-Lok slots machined into the fore-end and a button-activated folding stock. The chassis also has an adjustable cheekpiece on the butt and an AR-style pistol grip made from carbon fiber. The Nanook MG also includes a Bix'n Andy Dakota trigger, set to 2.5 lbs. Overall, the Kelbly's Nanook MG rifle weighs in at 7 lbs., 14.5 ozs. unloaded. It has a suggested retail price of $3,499.
