“I’ve cleaned off the red dirt of Molokai. The sandy soil of Zimbabwe. The freshly rained on tundra from Alaska. I’ve been there to see it take down one of the most dangerous animals in the world after we stalked through 9 foot tall grass. I’ve seen it get dropped, rattle in a rack, get loaded into numerous airplanes… with and without cases. I’ve seen it in the heat. In the cold. I’ve seen shots from 50 yards to 500, all without fail. We’ve already got a lot of miles under our belt together and there’s about to be a lot more. Welcome to the lineup Nosler Model 21.” – Justin Moore
The new Model 21 is a feature-rich production firearm that has the feel and performance of a custom build. Featuring premium components throughout and weighing roughly 7 pounds depending on the cartridge, the Model 21 rifle brings exceptional precision and packable reliability to any hunt.
Blueprinted from birth on advanced wire EDM equipment, the Model 21 action was thoughtfully designed to deliver exceptional performance in a user-friendly platform with several built-in custom features throughout. Among these features is a spiral fluted, one-piece, Nitride coated bolt made of 4340 Chrome Moly steel. In addition to a sleek aesthetic, and nearly effortless functioning, the fluted design provides a reduction in weight and helps to channel debris, preventing the bolt from jamming in environments where dirt and sand is an issue. In line with the M21 action’s practical design philosophy, the bolt’s upgraded M16-style extractor and fire control group feature tool-less takedown. Each rifle includes a set of optic bases.
A one-piece bolt body machined from a hardened 4340 Chrome Molybdenum billet. The bolt is fluted to decrease the contact of bolt to receiver which provides for a smooth open and close. To also increase the smooth feel and increase the life of the bolt it is then NIB-X ( Nitride) coated. Using a modified M-16 style extractor provides for excellent extraction while using a tool-less design for disassembly and cleaning. The bolt handle is threaded 5/16-24 TPI for change out to many popular bolt handle configurations.
