Rebel Action

The Rebel. Our original, most versatile custom bolt action. With all lengths available, the Rebel will prove itself in long-range hunting as well as competition shooting. And when we say all options can be configured in endless ways, we mean it. Our unique manufacturing process not only ensures precise, accurate custom bolt actions every time, it is designed to craft to your specifications.

“The Rebel actions packed with features like the Mini M16 extractor, AW magazine well to accept both Accuracy International AW and AICS magazines, and the legendary Defiance Machine extraction which put it ahead of the competition.” –Mark Gordon, Short Action Customs, LLC
