Bolt Action Rifle Redesign
BETTER ACCURACY THROUGH BETTER ALIGNMENT – RIFLE REDESIGN
When Axial Precision approached SGW Designworks with a well-defined bolt rifle concept and an early prototype already produced. Our team applied specific improvements to a ubiquitous bolt action rifle design, resulting in better alignment of the system elements, and greater firing precision.
FROM PROTOTYPE TO PRODUCTION
Axial Precision did not have enough engineering experience that allowed them to refine their initial bolt action concept and reach their perfect accuracy objective. As they described it “The key to accuracy is to have the rifle bolt, and the receiver axially aligned with the bore of the barrel”. Wih over 150 years of engineering experience, including product design & development, reverse engineering, and a clear understanding of manufacturing; SGW Designworks was contracted to help address Axial Precision challenges.
Our team worked closely with Axial Precision and focused on a rifle redesign that would (1) simplify the production process at large target volumes and (2) deliver the key elements for a greater firing precision. Through a series of iterations and optimizations, the prototype design transformed into a production-ready design.
