Bison spotting!

Black Creek Labs in Canada a few years back designed a handy little bolt-action rifle envisioned to be “comfortable in its scabbard on the side of a horse, packed, slung or mounted onto a Utility Vehicle for ranch, range or backcountry duty.”

Dubbed the MRX Bison, it runs a Remington 700 chassis with a 16.5-inch barrel, accepts AR15 mags in 5.56 and .300BLK variants and AR10 mags in .308 and 6.5CM, uses AR pistol grips and stocks, and weighs under 7 pounds.

Now that looks handy.

The good news, that I learned firsthand from the company, is that the MRX Bison is headed to the U.S. and will be available via ATI this fall at a price under $1K.

Shooting Sports Showcase?

This week, I had a chance to be on the ground in Northern Alabama for the annual Shooting Sports Showcase.

The Showcase is hosted by the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers, the Professional Outdoor Media Association, and the Southeastern Outdoor Press Association. Held on the ranges of the massive CMP Marksmanship Park in Talladega, this year’s event was the second of its kind, following up on last year’s inaugural show.

Photo dump ensues:
