The handgun will first be chambered in 20 Nosler, 22 Nosler, 24 Nosler, 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, 7mm-08, and .308 Win. Stock will come in a choice of colors. Barrels will come standard at 15 inches and be fluted. Different lengths and non-fluted barrels will be offered as an option, as well as muzzle brakes. MSRP – $2495. Get more details from the Nosler website. Mark will have articles published in future AMERICAN HANDGUNNER and GUNS magazines.

Think I'll stick to my contenders at that price. Maybe someone can enlighten me as to why almost $2500?

I am glad to hear that the 20 Nosler will be one of the first offerings.
Nice bobcat Mark.They are very elusive around here.
I am curious what the street price will wind up being.Bet they will shoot even better wth hand loads,although that is not quite like it used to be in the past.

It's not everyday handgun hunters get new products -- especially from well-known manufacturers. Since late last year I have been shooting the Nosler handgun. First was a prototype in 22 Nosler. It came with a 4x Leupold scope. Shooting factory ammo - three shot groups inside an inch were common. I killed a bobcat with the 22 Nosler during the winter. A few modifications were made and the second gun came in 6.5 Creedmoor. I've mounted a Leupold 4.5-14x scope which enables me to see better for accuracy testing. I've been very pleased with this Nosler handgun - and it is accurate! With an upcoming dall sheep hunt -- I sighted-in at 200 yards with factory Nosler 120 gr. BT ammo. Three-shot group measured .810" - and I'm a lousy bench shooter. You can find out more on Nosler's website and articles will be forthcoming in AMERICAN HANDGUNNER and GUNS Magazines.

2500 isn’t a bad price.

It’s right there with the custom xp and under the HS

It looks good Mark! Congrats on the bobcat! Thanks for working for new factory options as I think it would be nice to see this from different companies. I agree with (Hoggin) Chris if you have ever had a custom XP done this is a good price!

I think the big unknown for a nosler firearm is that we just don’t see many out there.

Not something you tend to run into at the range or hear a lot about.

I’m just glad to see someone making a new SP

Most shooters are right handed and a bolt on the left side is handier. probably too costly to tool up for left bolt handgun. Im more of a Wichita shooter than an xp these days. Like that left bolt. My 2 cents. Bruce

Wow! I really like that! Definitely has some features that have been discussed several times here. It makes you feel good that manufactures listen to people that really use a product. Fantastic pistol that should only help support our little niche. Several times it has been mentioned about a left hand action. I have a left handed long action Remington centergrip design now. I will be anxious to see details of trigger linkage as well as pictures of action without stock? (Mark?). Thanks to all that have helped guide Nosler down this path!

I may be wrong but it looks like the trigger is integral with aluminum chassis and possibly has a removable linkage to trigger? I like that idea a lot better than attaching trigger to recoil lug. This opens up the door to convert Howa actions to a centergrip chassis as well.

I don't like the look of the stock but I'm sure it's very functional. Hopefully they have some more traditional stock options. I'd be all over that if they do. Can't wait to get my next American Handgunner magazine. Nice shooting as always Mark.

Congrats on the cat and thanks for all your input/work on this pistol Mark! I may just bag my custom xp project and go for one of these instead... Wink

I am like the rest. Happy to see a new platform, but I want to see what's under the hood,so to speak. I hope it will stay in the game longer than Savage did, let alone Blaser. Worst mistake I ever made was cancelling my order for one of the Blaser pistols.
I am just as happy to see the 20 Nosler come about as a factory cartridge. Now if they will get the twist right we will be in business.

jsh, Funny you should mention the Blaser handgun. I have a few regrets regarding handguns -- and that's definitely one of them. Back in the day, they sent me a .308 Win. -- took it to Zimbabwe and Zambia and killed several critters. Stupid me -- I returned the gun instead of writing them a check!!!

I've got a good feeling about this Nosler...……..

Blasers looked awesome. Really digging this Nosler though, minus the stock. Mark, know if they have any plans for a fiberglass or wood stock?

I have not heard of any plans for additional stocks -- but if enough interest, who knows.

This is the same price as their custom 48 rifle. Same action? No modifications?
Have any pics of how the trigger system works?
Just curious.

It is the same Model 48 action they use on their rifles -- fed from a solid-bottom receiver. I do not know the price of their rifles as they offer several models. I like the fact the 2-stage trigger is adjustable for pull weight and over-travel.

Aaron, I'll make you a deal -- I'll do my best (for an old guy) to punch my sheep tag but I'm really looking forward to seeing your ram!! I'm rooting for you all the way!

Mark any idea on the pull weight range this trigger can be adjusted to? Just wondering if it was light / crisp enough for precision work. Your groups suggest it will work well.

Mike, I honestly don't know how low. Nosler has stated triggers will leave the factory at 3 Lbs. Currently mine is a tad under two pounds. I'll ask tomorrow and report back.

Mark , when I was in Dallas for NRA I spoke with couple gentlemen at Nosler booth they told me to keep eye on you at MOA . I didn't have much of chance to walk around but did go see Pat and met Mark and encouraged him to run with the pistol.

I don't know how to get attention on the long range pistols but I think and hope that popularity keeps growing . It is a lot of fun for me ! I also know there are bunch of members here who enjoy this as well .

Good luck to all who are going to WY Shot and the MOA in the next few weeks I know there will be travel from all over the country and one from Canada drive safe .

HA, you've got much better odds at cutting your tag than I do. Guided vs DIY. And Shane gets first right of refusal since he's never sheep hunted before. Only thing on my side is the 17 days in the field we have planned.

17 days!!!! Wow! My last backpack sheep hunt (2016) lasted 12 days. No opportunity at a legal ram but did come home with a hernia! You will make something happen in 17 days...………..

Hmmm they make their M48 in a left hand version so it should be possible to make a left bolt and port in this, just a different stock.
