THERE ARE NO PREDECESSORS.
Even the casual observer can see that the Model 98B is not a descendant of the bolt-action deer rifle. In fact, itís not a descendant of anything. This first-born brainchild was developed to be a completely unique, purpose-built platform for precision long-range shooting. Every inch of the never-before seen Model 98B is carved from years of hard-earned insight.
Thanks to its modular layout, this rifle can be adapted to fit each userís exact needs. Its straight-line design, running from the muzzle to the shooterís shoulder, tames recoil. It also allows for faster, more accurate follow-up shots fed from the 10-round detachable magazine.
The ergonomic pistol grip reduces muscle fatigue and provides total control over the fully adjustable trigger. An intuitive, thumb-operated safety can be accessed without compromising the firing grip. This allows the shooter to maintain a solid weld to the adjustable cheek piece. The oversized bolt handle can then be easily manipulated, feeding a fresh round into the chamber as the bolt silently glides through a polymer guide.
As for optics and accessories, the 98Bís aluminum upper receiver boasts an 18-inch M1913 rail, offering plenty of space to mount substantial optics as well as a night sight or laser designator. An optional receiver extension can add six more inches to the already generous rail space. The forward receiver is drilled and tapped for accessory rails to be mounted at the 3, 6 and 9 oíclock positions.
This revolutionary long-range weapon isnít all work. Equipped with a rear monopod and forward bipod, itís also a pleasure to shoot. From its highly efficient muzzle brake to its shooter adaptable design and never-before seen performance, the 98B is ingenuity in action.
