Bushmaster BA30 Straight-Pull Bolt Action Rifle

Bushmaster Firearms is proud to introduce the all-new BA30 Straight-Pull Bolt Action Rifle. Staying true to our premium quality and all-American manufacturing, we are excited for the release of the fastest straight-pull bolt action rifle. Engineered and built with accuracy, speed, and reliability for both hunters and precision shooters, both domestic and international.

The BA30 was crafted utilizing the XM-10 barrel and bolt design bringing a versatile straight-pull bolt action to the market. Our versatile design includes interchangeable XM-10 barrels, bolts, handguards, muzzle devices, grips, triggers, and magazines. Extended features include Type III hard coat anodizing, a 1913 stock adapter, along with an ambidextrous bolt handle and mag release.

Bushmaster Firearms International CEO, Sun Naegele, stated, “Bushmaster is excited to add this easy caliber conversion bolt action rifle to the market. As you all know, this is not an Adaptive Combat Rifle, but we are full steam ahead on the ACR project for 2022 and are looking forward to bringing it back.”

The BA30 will be available in .308 WIN or 6.5 Creedmoor in addition to 18 inches or 24 inches length with a starting MSRP of $1,799.99.
