New long distance precision rifles introduced at shot show 2018 in Las Vegas. designed for both traditional 300-m shooting and long distance.
The TLD precision rifles were designed and engineered by Sabatti in cooperation with the well-known “BCM” company.
They comes in two versions:
- TLD-Red: black action and red & black stock for a very aggressive look.
- TLD-Gold: bronze action and cheek piece combined with a stock in multilayer laminated material for a more refined look.
This rifle does not come from an adaptation of an existing hunting action. It was actually designed and built specifically for competition shooting and therefore features perfect alignment of bolt and barrel and perfect fit of lugs and frame to maximize contact surfaces. But it is the way the action fits to the stock that tells this rifle totally apart. Stock and frame do not touch like they normally do. The frame is actually “suspended” above the stock by means of a front “V” block, that also functions as a recoil lug, and a rear round cradle, which eliminates stress and improves shooting. We have named this self-regulating system “SUSPENDED ACTION” whereas bedding is not only unnecessary but also potentially limiting.
When we designed this rifle, safety and performance were equally important. The system we adopted actually minimizes damages generated by ammunition developing uncontrolled pressures.
We always suggest using factory-loaded ammunition versus potentially dangerous reloaded oneswith these precision rifles. However, as we do know reloading is very popular, we have designed as safe a precision rifle as possible.
Mechanisms, bolts and magazines of these precision rifles are all machined from solid bars of high quality steel. Their surface is hard, but their core is soft, which makes them super strong, but not fragile. The 3-tenon locking mechanism is responsible for the fast 60° opening. The new guillotine-type extractor also helps support the rim of the shell while seating in the bolt head, thus minimizing the risk of abnormal deformation.
The bolt is ground to precision tolerance. The chroming and extreme polishing of all sliding surfaces yield a very smooth operation that is difficult to surpass elsewhere on the market.
All barrels of our long distance shooting rifles are cold hammer forged and feature the MRR Multiradial Rifling now considered as synonymous of precision and reliability by shooters the world over. The trigger mechanism can be either a 3-lever Match or the new 2-step one (DSMT).
The stock in the precison rifles TLD models is an evolution of an “f-class” stock and it is definitely geared towards competition. it is made of a new multilayer laminated material of italian origin, much stronger than the materials coming from northern europe. the result is a more rigid stock which improves performance overall.
As we felt we “owed” our shooters a chance to further customize their rifles, rather than having to adjust to it, all our TLD come standard with adjustable cheek piece and spacers for LOP adjustment.
As a result, the TLD is one of the most innovative and high performance precision rifles on the market today whose modern captivating lines do not go unnoticed.
