Model 48 Nosler Independence
The Model 48 Nosler Independence is the ultimate precision bolt-action handgun. Built on a one-piece, billet aluminum stock, the mid-grip stock provides a completely rigid platform for the bedded action and free-floated barrel. Designed from the ground up by the engineers at Nosler with input from some of the most successful handgun hunters alive today, the M48 Independence is the answer to handgun hunters’ dreams. Each handgun is machined and built from US made parts by the accomplished gunsmiths at the Nosler Rifle division in Redmond, Oregon.
Built on the rugged Nosler Model 48 short action, the Independence shares all of the same features that have made the Model 48 series of rifles a continued success. Available in a variety of short action calibers well-suited to varmint hunting, silhouette shooting, and hunting big game. Every 15” barrel has a threaded muzzle to fit a variety of muzzle breaks and suppressor options. Every handgun stock and barreled action are completely 100% Cerakoted. The Independence is designed to accept standard AR-15 grips allowing the owner to choose from a wide variety of aftermarket grips to customize the look and feel of the handgun to their liking. Each handgun ships standard with a black Hogue Overmolded rubber grip with finger grooves. The M48 Independence features a fully free-floated, 416R stainless steel heavy contour barrel that has been threaded at the muzzle, and supplied with a thread protector.
