Bill Alexander, founder and chief product designer of Alexander Arms, gave us a first look at the Alexander Arms Ulfberht .338 Lapua Magnum. This gas piston-driven semi-automatic was designed to provide shooters with long range precision with minimal signature in a portable platform. The Ulfberht (Viking Sword) features a 10-round, double-stack magazine and ambidextrous mag releases; the mags are also designed to eject without having to lift the rifle.
The Ulfberht also features a long-stroke mechanism that prevents the bolt from slamming into the back of the rifle, reducing recoil and eliminating the need for a muzzle brake. Alexander Arms is expecting to begin taking orders for the Ulfberht during the first quarter of 2014, and should retail for about $6,800. Check out the video straight from the range.
