First Look: Colt CBX Precision Rifle System

Gun News

Colt has just made a surprising announcement with the unveiling of the CBX Precision Rifle System, a bolt-action rifle available in two chambering options.

When someone familiar with guns hears the name Colt, they’re likely going to think of either an AR-15, a 1911 or one of the company’s revolvers. Bolt-action rifles have never really been within Colt’s wheelhouse, but that’s exactly what the company has just unveiled in the form of the Colt CBX Precision Rifle System.

The CBX Precision Rifle System is a bolt-action rifle that is initially being offered in .308 Winchester and 6.5 Creedmoor. The .308 version sports a 24-inch barrel while the 6.5 Creedmoor model’s barrel is 26 inches. Besides the difference in barrel length, the two rifles are essentially identical. Both barrels are carbon steel, button-rifled and have 5/8×24 UNEF threaded muzzles. The barrels also feature a black nitride finish and ship with thread protectors.

Another feature worth mentioning is the modular chassis which provides user-adjustable length-of-pull and cheek riser height as well as provisions for mounting accessories, including an ARCA rail and M-LOK slots on the forend. It also features a built-in thumb shelf, barricade stop, QD sling cups and an ambidextrous magazine release. The system feeds from AICS-pattern magazines and each rifle will ship with one 5-round Magpul mag.

Other features of the CBX Precision Rifle System include its flex-reducing flat-bottom receiver, 60-degree bolt throw and user-adjustable trigger. The rifles also come with a 1-piece Picatinny rail for optics that is compatible with Rem700 scope mounts and Colt guarantees that the system is capable of producing sub-MOA groups.

Jessica Treglia, Colt Manufacturing Director of Commercial Products, said this about the new model:

Our engineers excelled in the design of the CBX Rifle…We’ve created a premium precision rifle worthy of the Colt name.

The Colt CBX Precision Rifle System has an MSRP of $1,899 and is shipping to dealers now.
