New from Montana Rifle Company

posted on May 3, 2013

Montana Rifle Company showed off three of its latest designs on the first day of the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits: the American Vantage Rifle, the Xtreme Vantage Rifle and the Montana Tactical Rifle.

The American Vantage Rifle (AVR) is a classic dangerous game design that's available in either matte blued chrome moly or 100 percent stainless steel. Both versions are offered in a glass bedded field grade American Black Walnut stock, and are chambered in 35 Whelen, .375 H&H, .375 Ruger, .416 Rem. Mag., .416 Ruger, .458 Lott and .458 Win. Mag.

The Xtreme Vantage Rifle (XVR) is also available in either matte blued chrome moly or 100 percent stainless steel, and is set in a Bell and Carlson Carbon Fiber stock with a full-length aluminum bedding block. It includes a larger #5 contour barrel and is available in the same chamberings as the AVR.

Also new is the Montana Tactical Rifle (MTR, and pictured above) which is chambered in .338 Lapua.
