Accurate-Mag’s new AM40A6 brings the modularity of the AR to the bolt-action rifle. And in the upcoming July 2014 issue of GUNS & WEAPONS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT, author Richard Mann gives you the inside scoop and tests it on the range.

“Accurate-Mag was started in 2005 and became an immediate success. The company’s work in the manufacture of magazines and bottom metal for bolt-action rifles is legendary. Accurate-Mag is a father-and-son company located in Monroe, Connecticut. Vincent ‘Cousin Vinny’ Battaglia runs Accurate-Mag, and he and his father are lifelong tool and die experts. After seven years of turning out rifle component parts and working behind the scenes with several major rifle manufacturers, Accurate-Mag decided to go ‘full rifle’ with its SporT-Tact line of precision-engineered bolt actions.

“The AM40A6 is the first of those rifles, and it has been built to conform to Marine Corps precision sniper rifle standards. As a result, you have a rifle that is designed to handle any tactical situation an officer might find himself faced with. Let me say up front that this might be the most accurate bolt-action rifle of any configuration that I have ever fired. If all you are interested in is accuracy, you probably do not need to read any further. I don’t shoot half-inch groups all that often, but shooting half-inch groups with this rifle was effortless.

“Accuracy or precision, depending on how you like to address it, does not come by accident or for free. Precision shooting such as this requires the exemplary fitting of a multitude of parts that have been meticulously machined. A great barrel must be properly fitted to an action that has been trued to exactness. Then a bolt must be impeccably fitted to that action, and the chamber must be cut into the barrel flawlessly. After all that splendid metal work has been performed, the barreled action must then be bedded to a stock that is rigid and rock solid.”
