NRA Gun of the Week: Nosler Varmageddon AR

posted on October 28, 2017

The introduction of the 22 Nosler cartridge has birthed new firearms tuned specifically to handle the new chambering, and one such rifle is the Varmageddon AR. Brought to market by Nosler but manufactured by Noveske Rifleworks, the Varmageddon AR is an AR-15-style rifle built from billet forgings and houses performance upgrades like its Cerakote FDE coating, Magpul PRS Gen3 buttstock and Geissele two-stage trigger, to name a few.
