SHOT Show 2023 – Colt introduces the CBX Precision Rifle System, a bolt-action chassis rifle available in two calibers, with two different barrel lengths, and offering a plethora of adjustable and customizable features
Freshly introduced at the 2023 SHOT Show, the Colt CBX Precision Rifle System is an advanced bolt-action chassis rifle with features ideal for competitive shooters, customizable for a shooters’ fit, and its modular accommodates aftermarket accessories, including suppressors, weights, AICS magazines, and optic mounts.
The modularity of a chassis rifle system makes them a popular choice for competitive target shooters. The CBX’s user-adjustable length-of-pull and cheek weld allow a custom shooter fit. The rifle’s aluminum chassis features a 38 cm / 15-inch extended forend with an ARCA rail and M-LOK slots for mounting accessories. An aggressive barricade stop establishes a solid shooting platform in any position. Enhanced ergonomics include an angled pistol grip, built-in thumb shelf, QD cups, and an ambidextrous magazine release, providing a user-friendly shooting experience.
The CBX rifle system features a flat-bottom receiver—a design that reduces flex and improves accuracy. Its 60° bolt throw allows for faster cycling times and increased optic compatibility, while its ergonomic 2-position tang safety is intuitive and quick to operate. A user-adjustable (2.5-5lb – 1,1/2,2 kg), crisp trigger allows a customizable shooter feel.
Colt optimized the CBX’s carbon steel, button-rifled barrel’s length for ballistic performance. The 6.5 Creedmoor sports a 66 cm / 26” barrel, while the .308 Winchester version uses a 61 cm / 24” barrel, and both feature 5/8-24 UNEF threaded muzzles with thread protectors. A black nitride treatment protects barrels from corrosion while providing a tactical matte finish.
Other features included with the CBX rifle system are a 1-piece Picatinny rail with Remington 700 compatible scope mounts and a detachable 5-round MagPul AICS magazine. Colt backs the CBX Precision Rifle with a sub-MOA accuracy guarantee. MSRP in the US starts at $1,899.00.
