Modern, modular, and multi-caliber, the Ballista® represents the future of precision rifle systems. Designed to deliver surgically precise fire, the rifle can be configured in less than two minutes to any of three available chamberings (.338 Lapua Mag. and .308 Win.). Featuring repeatable accuracy with all chamberings, the Ballista® employs a high strength, vibration-isolated aluminum alloy receiver with a top-mounted MIL-STD-1913 rail. In addition, the rifle features multiple rail segments for the addition of accessories. Fluted barrels measure 26 inches, and the bores have polygonal rifling with a right-hand, constant twist rate. A fully adjustable trigger (for single or two-stage release between 3 and 5 pounds) and adaptable, ambidextrous folding stock allows the shooter to configure the rifle for enhanced performance. For those who want the future of precision rifle performance today, look no further than the Ballista® multi-caliber system.
