Model 48® Mountain Carbon Rifle

Model 48 Mountain Carbon Rifle

MSRP $3,235

The Nosler Rifle Division spent the last few years watching the “Ultra-Lightweight” rifle market grow and develop into a complete niche of its own. We also saw many compromises that didn’t make sense to us. To achieve a sub-5 pound rifle, one had to choose to sacrifice either accuracy or their wallet. With all this in mind, we called upon experts from ballistics engineering, Carbon Fiber stock making, as well as the industry’s experts in Carbon wrapped barrels. Together we came up with the All NEW M48 Mountain Carbon Rifle. A rifle that isn’t only lightweight, but also highly accurate and ruggedly dependable at a price that won’t break the bank.

We start with the Nosler M48 action and precisely mate it to a match grade, cut rifled, carbon wrapped barrel that is capable of sub- MOA accuracy. The barreled action is then glass and aluminum pillar bedded into a Granite Green Ultra-light Mountain Hunter stock. Finally, all steel surfaces are coated in Tungsten Grey Cerakote for superior weather resistance. The finished product weighs in at 6 pounds and is balanced to feel like an extension of your arm.


Detailed Model 48 Mountain Carbon Rifle Features

Shown with optional muzzle brake (Not Included)

  1. 100% Carbon Fiber Mountain Hunter Stock specifically made for the Nosler M48 action to provide maximum weight savings. Forend and palm swell feature a molded texture surface for sure grip when standing for a shot. Weather resistant and pillar bedded for the best durability and precision in the field when it’s needed most.
  2. Contoured to accept any standard 2-Piece scope base that would otherwise fit a Remington® Model 700™.
  3. All external metal surfaces are coated with the NIC Industries Cerakote™ finish. Designed to protect against rust and wear, Cerakote™ products can withstand tremendous impact with no coating loss, and can resist corrosion in a variety of tough conditions. We have found Cerakote™ to be the best firearm finish available.
  4. A textured finish ensures proper grip in cold or wet weather.
  5. Fully free-floating, light sendero contour, carbon fiber-wrapped barrel.
  6. A lightweight aluminum floorplate allows for quick unloading, without adding appreciable weight to the rifle.
