Nosler Rifles Reviews | Nosler Guns
To figure out the history of Nosler rifles we need to go way back into the 40s when John Nosler created the Partition bullet. This happened in 1946 and a year later he tested his invention. The company was founded in 1948 – Nosler Partition Bullet Company was born in Oregon, created by John A. Nosler. 10 years later in 1958, the company moved its HQ’s to a 6,000 sq. ft. building in Bend, Oregon. The first commercial loader was introduced in 1963 and two years later the Zipedo bullet made history.
In 1969 the company changed its name to Nosler Bullets and in 1984 they introduced the Ballistic Tip bullet. In 1990 the company changed its name again, to Nosler Inc. In 2003 they introduced the AccuBond bullet and one year later the NoslerCustom brand was launched. In 2009 they released the Ballistic Tip Lead Free bullet and last year we witnessed the introduction of a new Nosler rifle, the Trophy Grade.
The current lineup of Nosler rifles includes the following: M48 Trophy Grade, M48 Legacy, M48 Varmint, M48 Sporter and the limited-edition Custom Rifle. The Trophy Grade packs a custom aluminum-bedded Bell and Carlson composite stock. The Legacy features a hand lapped PAC-NOR match-grade chrome moly, fully free-floated barrel. The Varmint has glass pillar-bedded Kevlar and carbon-fiber stock with Teflon overcoat.
Another interesting Nosler rifle is the M48 Sporter that has CERAKOTE and Micro Slick finished in order preventing corrosion and intrusive weather damage. The last available model from their lineup is the Custom Rifle, limited to a production run of only 500 units, each featuring matching serial number and scope. In addition, this model comes with a custom leather sling as well as a custom CASE Cruzer by Pelican. It was designed to fully take advantage of the accuracy potential of Nosler’s hunting bullets. It comes bundled with a Leupold Custom Shop riflescope that is fitted with a specially designed reticle which was calibrated to provide 200-500 yard zeros with AccuBond NoslerCustom ammunition. This scope is mounted in Leupold QR rings.
As you can see, the Nosler rifles are available in a rich variety, suitable for the most various hunting conditions. In addition, the company also offers a wide array of ammunition like the NoslerCustom – Handloaded; bullets like the Ballistic Tip – Varmint and brasses like the NoslerCustom Brass. With a history of seven decades, the quality of these products is guaranteed thanks to the years of development and rigorous testing.
If we were to choose the best Nosler rifle, it would have to be the aforementioned M48 Trophy Grade as it is the best for most hunting situations. The Match-grade Pac-Nor chrome moly barrel along with the crisp custom 3-pound Rifle Basix trigger ease the job of the hunter, regardless of what he is shooting at. Thanks to the fact that it has a weight of only 7.5 pounds, it is easy to carry around, regardless of the hunting field. It also is a durable rifle thanks to the Micro Slick and CERAKOTE finishes which protect it from corrosion and weather damage.
The Nosler firearms benefit from decades of craftsmanship and have evolved significantly in the last period. All of the M48-based rifles have been created to withstand any weather conditions and to bring out all of the advantages of a low-weight rifle that is also versatile, allowing the hunter to obtain great results. Add to this the fact that the company offers a wide selection of bullets and ammunition suitable for their rifle models, it goes without showing that Nosler is one of the big players in today’s hunting domain.
Grab it while you can, as it is a limited production run of only 500 units. The Custom Rifle from Nosler comes with a custom leather sling and a glass pillar-bedded fancy walnut stock. It also has a matching serial number and scope along with the Custom Case Cruzer by Pelican.
The Nosler M48 Legacy features a hand lapped PAC-NOR match-grade chrome molly, fully free-floated barrel. The newly designed hinged floorplate features John A. Nosler's signature. The unit also benefits from a Custom Rifle Basix trigger that is adjusted for a crisp 3-pound let-off.
The M48 Sporter is a tribute to John Nesler and the year he started selling his innovative Partition bullets. It features CERAKOTE and Micro Slick finishes to protect the rifle from corrosion and intrusive weather damage. It is capable of delivering sub-M.O.A. groups.
