Unless it is a "named" rifle I don't see why not. Should be legal.

remember kiddies, SB23 applies to semi automatic centerfire rifles. Bolt action is good to go.

I would love that rifle if it was in .308
.338 Lapua is a bit too expensive for my taste.

Why does it seem like 1 person per day asks if bolt action rifles are legal in CA?

Do we really need to put a sticky on the top of this forum that says, "Before you ask, YES, bolt action rifles are legal in CA" ?

I tracked down some pricing for this sweet rifle.

Shot Show Prices will be (Tentative):
SRS 338LM $3585 (26" fluted barrel includes DTA muzzlebrake)
SRS 300WIN $3450 (26" fluted barrel no brake)
SRS 243WIN $3275 (24" fluted barrel)
SRS 308WIN $3275 (22" fluted barrel)

Conversion kits (includes bolt, barrel, barrel ext, and magazine)
338LM $1480 (includes DTA Muzzlebrake)
300WIN $1265
243WIN $1205 (if you already have a 308win bolt you can deduct $300)
308WIN $1155

Ouch.

This rifle is a lot like the DSR 1 (http://dsr-nr-1.de/en/dsr1.php).

It is designed to quickly convert to 300WM and .308, which is excellent.

Couldn't they find an employee without a frayed band aid on his finger to hold the rifle for the photo shoot!

It is a very nice design. The price is comparable to other high quality rifles with similar features.

We are awaiting more extensive accuracy and durability testing.

Why would you want or need a quad-rail on a bolt action? I personally do not care for the appearance........at all.

Top rails yes
bottom to mount a bi-pod yes
side rails not so much

better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it

Daaang, that is one evil looking bolt action rifle.... not quite as evil as the price tag though!

MadMax

^^^seriosly that is expensive as hell!!

But it is pretty pimpy though

rksimple
02-25-2008, 6:43 PM
Its expensive if you're used to buying normal, off the shelf rifles. Compare it to a custom, a sako, or an AI, and its not so bad. I love the barrel change feature.

J_Rock
02-25-2008, 6:50 PM
Seriously an AI .338 will cost about $6k. Compared to that this rifle isnt that expensive.

Are 50BMG bolt actions legal in CA?

Stupid California.

Maybe not evil looking enough, but wicked in 200 or 300 yard rapids or slow prone at 600 yards: http://www.6mmbr.com/gunweek074.html

And it is made in CA

What about the 510 DTC Bohica uppers I've seen. I think those are pretty "evil"...still not sure about how well they shoot. It just seemed like a good idea.

I'm going to order a .338 tomorrow, Just because I can't get a DSR-1 here.

how about .416 barrett?

what I want to know is.............. do they make it for us south paw guys?!?!?! If so sign me up for one.

J_Rock
02-26-2008, 2:03 PM
For $4750 you can get a .338 LM with a .308 a conversion. Thats like having 2 rifles for less than price of a Sako or AICS .338

I better start saving now

Looks inconvient to use.
I'm sitting here pretending to be in firing position and moving my hands/arms to cycle the bolt... 2 things: 1. I don't know if I can move my right hand back far enough; 2. I can't see if the shell is ejected and a new one is properly loaded.

this isnt the first bullpup bolt action you know. to get the shorter OAL you need to sacrifice some ergonomics.

I'm a sucker for anything bullpup.... not sure why, just am.

Ok the savings begins, and I told my better half that I was done for a while :)

guess not!!

It warms my heart to finally see some goverment expenditure that gives good bang for the buck. It looks/shoots like a acurate rifle.

These guys asked to borrow my DSR for T&E(COPY) so I know for a fact this was copied from the DSR. At least they have the right scope sitting on it and not some POS USO. I only hope they made it lighter as my DSR was a boat anchor and it was in 308. I can't imagine what it would have weighed in 338.
