With the shooting season coming, the debate over impact precision is heating up like nothing else among rifle enthusiasts. If you were to have a look at the gears of the top shooters in the Precision Rifle Series and the National Rifle League, you will see that they all use the rifle action from Impact Precision.
What is action in a rifle & what is its importance?
Action is that part of a breech-loading firearm that loads, fires, and ejects a cartridge. If you were to ask professional marksmen, they would tell you how important the action of a rifle is when it comes to determining your rifle’s accuracy, durability, and reliability. Professionals choose to see the action as the heart of any rifle.
For them, everything including the barrel, scope, and trigger mechanism are accessories that are attached to the action.
Unlike the barrel, scope, and trigger mechanism that can be upgraded to improve the accuracy of a rifle, you can’t expect to change the action of your rifle easily. According to veterans, it is better to build a new rifle from scratch rather than replacing the action of your rifle.
You must invest in the right custom rifle action as action is the only time-travelling part of a rifle that you have to stick to almost through your career.
