Colt, a name synonymous with quality rifles through the years, has done it again. Colt has upgraded its rifle offerings to include the CBX Precision Rifle, a bolt-action chassis rifle with features the company says are ideal for the competitive shooter.
The CBX Precision Rifle from Colt is compatible with a lot of aftermarket accessories like optic mounts, weights, AICS magazines, and even suppressors. The rifle can be completely customized to match the fit needs of the end user, including a choice of caliber.
“Our engineers excelled in the design of the CBX Rifle,” remarked Jessica Treglia, Colt Manufacturing, Director of Commercial Products. “We’ve created a premium precision rifle worthy of the Colt name.”
Available in both .308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor, the rifle’s modular aluminum chassis features a 15-inch extended forend with an ARCA rail and M-LOK for mounting accessories. Additionally, the CBX features a user-adjustable length-of-pull and cheek weld so the end user can custom-fit their CBX Precision rifle.
Those features aren’t the only things that the end user can customize. The Colt CBX also has an adjustable trigger, so the end user can adjust it from a 2.5-lb pull up to a 5-lb pull weight. As a bonus for the shooting experience is a flat-bottom receiver that reduces flex and improves accuracy, according to Colt.
The CBX rifle has a black nitride-finished barrel that protects it from corrosion with a 5.8-24 threaded muzzle and thread protector. Speaking of the barrel, which is 24” for the .308 Win and 26” for the 6.5 Creedmoor, it is a carbon steel, button-rifled barrel that has been ballistically optimized for length and twist, according to Colt.
For a solid shooting platform, the CBX has what Colt refers to as an aggressive barricade stop. The CBX also features an ergonomic two-position safety and a 60° bolt throw that allows for faster cyclic rates and increased optic compatibility.
To round out the features of the CBX Precision rifle is an angled pistol grip, built-in thumb shelf, QD cups, and an ambidextrous magazine release. “We are proud of the CBX rifle platform and know shooters will love how it performs,” added Treglia.
