MODEL 48 Western RIFLE
Nosler makes rifles? As a matter of fact we do. Throughout our history we have built countless rifles for ballistic testing, using the premium components of the day. Actions, barrels, triggers, and stocks from nearly every manufacturer have been assembled and fired under the rigorous conditions of daily bullet testing. All of this collective knowledge has given us a great perspective on what works, and what doesn’t.
For years, the concept of the “Perfect Nosler Rifle” was discussed, with the goal of bringing something very special to the world of custom firearms - a compilation of features that we have found to be the best for overall function, accuracy, and hard use.
In 2005, this vision was realized with the first production of NoslerCustom Limited Edition Rifles. 12 years later, we are proud to have had our rifles receive some of the most prestigious awards for excellence in the shooting sports industry. From the inception of the program we have held that the epitome of a modern hunting rifle must be simple, rugged, fully weather resistant, and provide minute-of-angle accuracy with readily available factory ammunition. Nosler Rifles are designed to exceed this goal.
Our line of Production Rifles sets a new bar for what is considered “standard” in a factory produced rifle. We include features like our hand-lapped and blueprinted Nosler action, premium match-grade barrels, glass and pillar bedded stocks, finely tuned custom trigger, and all-weather Cerakote® finish in every rifle we hand build in our plant in Central Oregon. Our assembly methods incorporate hand craftsmanship with an assembly environment borrowed from our innovative bullet production lines, yielding a rifle of extremely high quality, at a reasonable price.
In addition to our premium line of production rifles, we offer a Custom line of rifles, allowing you to design the Nosler Rifle that is perfect for you. Thinking of a new rifle for your long-range antelope hunt? We can build a rifle for that. Or, are you dreaming of a classically-styled magnum for your first trip to Africa? We can build a rifle for that too. We know that off-the-shelf rifles do not fit everyone, and our Model 48 Custom Rifle line offers plenty of choices.
Nosler Rifles have been tested in some of the most trying conditions on the planet. From the sizzling deserts of Africa, to the frozen tundra of the Far North, you can be sure that a Nosler Rifle is up to the challenge.
