Archimedes Bolt Action
An American Rifle Company Original
The namesake of a brilliant thinker of ancient Greece who proclaimed that he could move the world given a lever and a place to stand, American Rifle Company’s Archimedes bolt action uses the same principle to establish a new standard that no other action can meet.
The pivoting bolt handle of the Archimedes action gives you the mechanical advantage to extract even the most stubbornly stuck cases. Your ability to extract cartridges without the use of tools is now limited only by the strength of the case rim. And since bolt rotation is no longer necessary for case extraction, 75 degrees of bolt rotation is entirely dedicated to cocking, making cycling the bolt as easy as it gets.
The Archimedes embodies the most significant advancement in bolt action design that has occurred in over 120 years.
Proudly engineered and manufactured in the USA
Short action weight 2.1 pounds. Long action weight 2.4 pounds
Pivoting bolt handle enables the most effective extraction possible.
75-degree bolt rotation provides excellent knob to scope clearance and shortens bolt cycle.
Entire bolt rotation is dedicated to cocking which eases the bolt lift.
Ample clearance between bolt and receiver tolerates dirt while cycling the bolt.
Dual cocking cams reduce the effects of friction and improve cocking efficiency.
Easy 100% cock on opening.
Closing the bolt is generally smooth but a slight bump may be felt depending on the trigger used.
Three rail-guided bolt locking-lugs resist binding and provide for an exceptionally smooth bolt cycle.
