When one thinks of precision tactical rifles, one of the first names that come to mind is McMillan. McMillan has established a well-deserved reputation for manufacturing some of the highest quality and most accurate rifles on the planet.
McMillan manufactures a complete line of rifles for sport shooters, competitive shooters and military or law enforcement marksmen. If a standard McMillan rifle doesn’t meet customer requirements, the company will build a rifle that does. All rifles include a McMillan custom pillar-bedded fiberglass stock, a match-grade stainless steel barrel and Remington type trigger, and are finished in DuraCoat, a durable wear-resistant polymer.
The McMillan TAC-308 Tactical Rifle uses their “top of the line” G30 action, built by the company to aerospace standards, with each action CNC-machined from a solid billet. The action material is 17-4 stainless steel, which is tougher and more corrosion resistant than the 4000-series alloy often encountered in firearms. The steel is hardened to 42-43 Rockwell C. The action face is absolutely perpendicular to the bolt axis. General tolerances are held to 0.005 of an inch, while critical components are machined to 0.0005 of an inch. The chamber and barrel threads are cut to critical tolerances and then hand-fitted.
All McMillan barrels are premium, hand-lapped, match-grade stainless steel, capable of delivering exceptional performance. A removable cap protects the rifle’s threaded muzzle (shown) that can accept a variety of suppressors or muzzle brakes.
