The Nosler Rifle Division spent the last few years watching the “Ultra-Lightweight” rifle market grow and develop into a complete niche of its own. We also saw many compromises that didn’t make sense to us. To achieve a sub-5 pound rifle” one had to choose to sacrifice either accuracy or their wallet. With all this in mind” we called upon experts from ballistics engineering” Carbon Fiber stock making” as well as the industry’s experts in Carbon wrapped barrels. Together we came up with the all new M48 Mountain Carbon Rifle. A rifle that isn’t only lightweight” but also highly accurate and ruggedly dependable at a price that won’t break the bank. We start with the Nosler M48 action and precisely mate it to a match grade” cut rifled” carbon wrapped barrel that is capable of sub- MOA accuracy. The barreled action is then glass and aluminum pillar bedded into a Granite Green Ultra-light Mountain Hunter stock. Finally” all steel surfaces are coated in Tungsten Grey Cerakote for superior weather resistance. The finished product weighs in at 6 pounds and is balanced to feel like an extension of your arm.
