5 Great Accessories for Your Bolt-Action Rifle

posted on October 10, 2016

A. In addition to providing enhanced comb height for improved alignment for tactical scopes with large objectives, the Blackhawk Urban Warfare Performance Ventilating Cheek Pad helps you gain a positive and consistent cheek weld. Its compressed-spider design cushions recoil and minimizes perceived vibration, so your face takes less of a beating when firing large-caliber rifles. There’s even a zippered utility pouch and external cartridge loops for ammunition storage. Available colors include black, coyote tan, multi cam and olive drab.
MSRP: $45.95-$48.95

B. Add an extra degree of precision to your shooting with Flatline Ops Covert Accu/Level. Constructed from 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum, the system fits 34 mm scopes and features a built-in, two-position articulating level—enabling shooters to correct cant error at a glance—for a true, dead-on, shot-to-shot vertical hold. Designed to accommodate left- or right-handed shooters, the Accu/Level contains high-visibility fluorescent fluid that assures easy use in varying light conditions. A black, hard-coat-anodized finish provides welcome corrosion resistance in extreme conditions.
MSRP: $169.99

C. Featuring machined and hardened-steel surfaces milled from A2-tool steel, the Timney Remington 700 2 Stage Black Trigger has a factory-calibrated pull weight that is 8 ounces for the first stage and 1 pound for the second, which is adjustable from 8 ounces to 2.5 pounds. All three sears are EDM cut from high-grade solid steel and Teflon-nickel coated for added lubricity. The trigger housing is anodized and the trigger shoe and safety are carbonitrided for greater surface hardness and wear-resistance.
MSRP: $195.95

D. When shooting at longer distances, environmental factors start to play into the equation. Designed to plug directly into the headphone jack of your smartphone, the Nikon Spot On Ballistic Wind Meter takes accurate reading of the wind speed and direction in real-time and inputs the data directly into the Spot On app. Using specs from your particular model of Nikon scope, caliber and bullet information, along with the wind information and other atmospheric conditions, holdover for elevation and windage will be calculated and displayed for a hassle-free shooting solution.
MSRP: $39.95

E. Be prepared for whatever Mother Nature may unleash with the Rite in the Rain Pocket Top-Spiral Kit 946T-Kit. Each sheet of its 4x6-inch, 50-page notebook is coated in the company’s unique moisture-shield technology that enables the paper to be clearly written on during all manner of inclement weather, yet still remain legible. The included pen continues writing on the paper even while wet and/or submerged under water. There’s even a Cordura zipper case to keep your rifle’s ballistic data dry and also easily accessible.
MSRP: $35.48
