The AB3 Composite Stalker combines a matte blued barreled action with a rugged matte black synthetic stock to create a high-performance hunting rifle that won't blow a hole your budget. The free-floated, button-rifled AB3 barrel is individually finished with a hand-reamed chamber for tighter tolerances and more precise headspace. The barrel's target crown enables the uniform release of gas as the bullet exits the muzzle, helping prevent any unwanted shift in trajectory. The AB3's unique integrated trigger design provides a crisp 3½-pound pull that breaks like glass. A robust, precision-machined standard-length steel action allows you to mount your scope extremely close to the center of the bore to minimize the offset between the bore centerline and the optical centerline. The detachable staggered box magazine has a rugged formed steel body and feed lips for added durability, plus a tough polymer baseplate and shoulder that's designed to prevent recoil-induced bullet tip deformation and bullet setback in the cartridge case. The innovative Inflex Technology recoil pad uses directional deflection to pull the stock down and away from your face when firing to reduce felt recoil and flinching.
