Nosler has unveiled its M48 NCH, a precision bolt-action handgun for hunting.

The Nosler M48 NCH

Designed from the ground up by Nosler engineers with input from some of the world’s most successful handgun hunters, the M48 NCH (Nosler Custom Handgun) is available in .22 Nosler, .24 Nosler, 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5mm Creedmoor, 7mm-08 Remington and .308 Winchester. It boasts a fully free-floated Shilen, 416R stainless steel heavy contour barrel. The barrel is threaded at the muzzle and comes with a thread protector. It can also be fluted at an additional charge. A Harrell’s Precision Tactical 4-Port brake is available as an add-on. The standard barrel length is 15 inches, with lengths between 12 and 18 inches available upon request.

Meanwhile, the M48 NCH features a stock precision CNC machined from a billet of 6061-T6 aluminum. In addition, the gun is designed to accept standard AR-15 grips. Each model ships with a black Hogue OverMolded rubber grip with finger grooves.

The overall length of the gun is 21 inches with a 15-inch fluted barrel. In that configuration, it weighs in at 5.4 pounds without a scope or mounts. Longer barrels, no fluting and muzzle brakes add or subtract to and from those numbers.

The M48 NCH, which is a single-shot and fed from a solid-bottom receiver, is available in 10 Cerakote colors: Graphite Black, Armor Black, Satin Mag, Blue Titanium, Hunter Orange, Desert Tan, Burnt Bronze, Sniper Grey, OD Green and StormTrooper White. Other colors can be requested upon ordering.

The base price for the M48 NCH is $2,495.
