The Accuracy International AX Rifle System is a short action platform based on AI’s established family of highly successful AW rifles. A bolt-action single shot rifle with free-floating barrel and a magazine capacity of ten rounds, fulfills the need for a highly accurate long range sniper rifle. Like the AW series, all AX rifles utilize an aluminum chassis system, which ensures insensitivity to temperature and humidity, thus ensuring a constant zero. A right-folding stock and removable barrel allows the system to be broken down and secured in a small transport case or pack. Designed around the .308 Winchester cartridge, the AX can be converted for use with other short action cartridges such as the 6.5 Creedmoor - at the user level. A 2-stage trigger coupled with a large trigger guard provides the ideal firing system for tactical and cold weather environments. However, a competition trigger is also available for target shooters and competitors seeking more adjustability.
