“Take-down” is the magic word for disassembling a hunting rifle without tools. The MERKEL Bolt Barrel System has perfected the take-down and brought it to series production for the first time in this class. In three quick steps, the weapon can be taken apart, ready to pack away in its case. Even novices can do it in a few seconds – and take the RX.HELIX down to transport size.
The RX.HELIX Bolt Barrel System makes weapon disassembly and changing barrels and caliber easier than ever. The forearm is removed with the press of a button, the barrel lever under the forearm switched and the barrel removed safely along with the bolt head.
The Bolt Barrel System is ideal for securing the weapon reliably. The bolt head is no bigger than a golf ball and can be kept in your trouser pocket, protecting the gun against unauthorized use.
Cleaning the breach and barrel is a simple task with the Bolt Barrel System – remove the barrel, unscrew the bolt head, and all parts are easy to access and clean.
