SHOT Show 2011: The Nosler Legacy Rifle

By David E. Petzal

About the Video: Nosler’s newest big-game rifle is the design of the founder of the company, as explained by rifle sales manager Shawn Finley. It’s wood-stocked, accurate, and gorgeous.

Good looking gun.... what I liked most is how Mr Nosler designed it using a napkin and let the engineers do the rest. Great story thanks Mr. Petzal.

Sweet. Now we're talking. Something I can oogle from afar, like my life-long dream, a super model that can clean fish.

I sure would like to try one of those - not fussy about the caliber of the try gun.

Maybe we'll see a review of one here on F&S Gun Nut.

Dave what action lengths are available? I suppose cartridge choices are very limited. I personally would prefer a steel floorplate. The forearm appears to be a bit "cluby" but that could have been the camera angle. Price might determine if I bought the Nosler, a Cooper, or a Dakota. Maybe I had rather just have my own design made up by some local unknown, but highly skilled, craftsman. Still no doubt this Nosler is a rifle worth careful consideration.

$2,195 and you can get it from a 257 Roberts to a 35 Whelen. Cheap at twice the price for a 3/4" guarantee and beautiful wood. 20 LPI.

Notice how easy and slick the bolt closed!

$2200 for that rifle is a fair price, just glad so see something for the 'Purist' that is not synthetic and black. Guaranteed .75 MOA, pleasing asthetics, yup, not for everybody, but I'd put one in my armametarium.

A fine piece indeed. If I had one it would look like my wood stocked .35 Whelen after a few elk hunts. Mine shoots 1/2 MOA easy if I do my part. Perhaps I should have a red tag sale on the contents of the gun safes and buy one of these fine rifles. But what caliber????

I'll stick to my Remington Rand 03-A3 30-06! thank you :)

$2,195 damn proud of that rifle!

But does it shoot as good as my Ol'03-A3

Hi Clay,
Did Remington Rand build '03-A3s? I thought they only manufactured 1911-A1s.
Maybe it's a Smith Corona?
Regardless, when you get an accurate '03 it is a joy to behold.
Best,
Deadly
