TLD RIFLE ACTIONS
This bolt action was designed and built in cooperation with the renowned manufacturer of competition rifles, BCM. It is not a hunting action converted to competition, like so many others on the market today. This action was specifically designed for sporting and tactical shooting where the need for resistance, longevity and accuracy is more extreme than in hunting.
The new action is manufactured on lathes and milling machines starting from solid bars of high resistance steel alloy. It features three locking lugs with an easy and fast 60° opening. The handle of the 3-front-lug bolt with a 5/16 thread is easily interchangeable. After machining, the action is heat treated for resistance, ground and chrome plated. The smooth contact surfaces guarantee effortless bolt movement as well as lower noise level than all competitors’ products.
The special steel alloy of actions and bolts generates surfaces that are very hard, basically indestructible, but not fragile. The cores are strong.
The new guillotine-type extractor is extremely reliable and safe, as it cannot move backwards when the cartridge bottom expands under pressure. This design tends to reduce (but not eliminate) the damages generated by the use of ammunitions operating at out of range pressures.
But what truly sets this rifle apart is the way action and stock come together in a dynamic suspension. The new action “floats” above the stock by means of two supports, a V-shaped front block, which works as a recoil lug, and a rear cradle block. The barrel is completely suspended. The stress and tension generated by traditional barreled action- stock bedding and fitting are therefore eliminated to the benefit of accuracy. This system can be called “SUSPENDED ACTION”.
Thanks to the all the features and pluses described above, we feel 100% confident we offer one of the best competition actions available on the market today.
