Shaw Precision Guns Unveils New Mark X Rifle

From Shaw Precision Guns, a division of E. R. Shaw, America’s largest independent manufacturer of gun barrels, comes the new Mark X, an evolutionary upgrade of the Mark VII bolt-action rifle, designed to set new standards in custom rifle affordability. Essentially, this is a custom rifle that offers consumers a choice of barrel lengths from 16.25 inches to 26 inches in two different contours. More than 100 chamberings are on offer, from .17 through .458 in both commercial and wildcat calibers.

The new Mark X differs from the Mark VII in that it features both cosmetic and functional improvements, among them a ¼-inch-thick integral recoil lug, an attractive flat-sided patented receiver with an integral Picatinny scope mount base, and controlled-round feeding. In addition, the highly acclaimed AccuTrigger is standard, as is a five-round detachable magazine and a laminated stock in a choice of brown or black.

Essentially, the E. R. Shaw Mark X is a custom, made-to-order rifle, yet the SRP starts at $1,399 for the basic blued chrome-moly version with laminated stock. Options include stainless-steel barrels and actions, left-hand actions, Timney trigger, high polish or matte metal finish, a Grade V checkered
walnut stock, barrel fluting, and Shaw's patented spiral fluting at an additional cost.
