Oklahoma-based company Rise Armament has introduced its new 1121XR precision rifle chambered in the popular 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge.

Geared toward those want to get the most out of a heavy-caliber gas gun, the 1121XR in 6.5 Creedmoor features a reduced weight of 10 pounds and four ounces. This boosts the gun’s portability. Rise is also guaranteeing sub-1 MOA accuracy here.

“The 1121XR hits levels of accuracy that a gas gun has never seen,” Rise Armament president Matt Torres said in a press release. “With its emphasis on accuracy, it helps shooters remove their limits, making virtually any shooter better.”

Rise’s 6.5 Creedmoor 1121XR sports a 22-inch barrel and 15-inch slim, billet aluminum handguard. The handguard is M-LOK compatible and features a Picatinny upper rail system for accessories. Also included on this rifle is Rise’s RA-535 Advanced-Performance Trigger. This trigger has a 3.5-pound pull, crisp release with minimal over travel, and a short reset for fast follow-ups.

In addition, the 1121XR’s bolt carrier group features a black nitride finish. Meanwhile, the stainless steel Rise Armament RA-701 Compensator counter acts recoil. Finally, the durable Cerakote finish ensures the rifle will operate in harsh conditions. The rifle comes in black, foliage green or flat dark earth.

“With the 1121XR, competitors and long-range shooters can have the accuracy of a bolt-action gun with the benefit of quick follow-up shots due to minimal recoil and muzzle bounce,” the presser says. “Big-game hunters can also have accurate knock-down power at long distances without having the extra weight that typically comes with such a platform.”

Shipping out with a hard case and two magazines, the Rise Armament 1121XR is available at a MSRP of $2,449. See the specs below. To learn more about Rise Armament, visit risearmament.com.
