RTH Firearms announced the launch of its first-ever semi-automatic precision rifle platform, with guns available in 6.5x47 Lapua, 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Win. The company promises sub-MOA accuracy at 100 yards with the capability of each rifle to reach out to 1,400 yards with little felt recoil.

“It can hit a dime all day long at 100 yards and achieve long-range target success,” said Ralph Hicks, CEO of RTH Firearms. “RTH Firearms is dedicated to producing legacy firearms that reward owners with speed, power and precision. Each individually crafted firearm provides the opportunity to maximize targeting success without compromise.”

The 6.5 mm options are both known for their flat trajectories and ability to retain a great deal of kinetic energy downrange, making them popular for long-range target shooters and hunters alike. Another benefit of the 6.5 mm round is the fact that it does not wear out barrels with the frequency of 6 mm cartridges, leading to a longer barrel life.

Features on the new semi-auto rifle include a fully adjustable cheek rest with an adjustable length of pull and a carbon-fiber octagonal handguard. The rifle also includes a bi-pod rail and a 20-MOA scope rail with a thumb rest hand grip and an adjustable trigger. The lower and upper receiver are "match grade," and feature a burnt bronze Cerakote finish and a custom bolt carrier. All caliber options feature a 22-inch proprietary barrel from RTH.

The rifle is available with an optional optics package from Nightforce Optics and comes pre-zeroed. Other accessories include a tactical hard case, a paracord sling and magazines. The suggested retail price on the RTH semi-automatic precision rifle is $7,499.99.
