Description

MERKEL RX HELIX
Merkel has created a truly revolutionary bolt action that cycles in half the length of the conventional system. While the RX Helix is a straight-pull rifle, it retains the strength of a rotary bolt head with seven locking lugs, as well as a fully enclosed, hard-anodized aluminum action housing. The RX Helix?��s linear motion of the bolt handle is transmitted to the bolt head by way of a revolutionary transmission gearing system.

A true takedown rifle, it can be dismantled in a matter of seconds without tools. The RX Helix has a universal action length that covers calibers from .222 Rem. to .300 Win. Mag., and changing calibers takes less than a minute with the appropriate barrel, bolt and magazine.

Reviews for Merkel RX Helix .30-06 Black Rifle

Average Rating


by on October 12, 2013

My son Harry and I went on safari in the Limpopo province of South Africa during the first week of September, 2013. When we arrived at the NB Safaris hunting camp on September 2nd, we were met by our host, Neil Barnard, and Johan Pretorius our professional hunter. My son had prepared extensively for the hunt over the last 3 years, and we began preparing in earnest in September of 2012. The first order of business was selecting rifles and calibers for the trip – we ended up with a Merkel RX-Helix in .30-06 and 9.3x62mm. We enjoyed working with EuroOptic during this process, and settled on a Merkel rifle because of their reputation, and also because the Helix breaks down easily, and has the interchangeable barrel option. We had a fantastic hunting trip, and Harry took a Sable, Bush Pig, Eland and 3 other plains animals with the Merkel chambered in .30-06, and a Nyala and Blue Wildebeest shooting the 9.3x62mm cartridge. All of the animals were taken cleanly and efficiently with one shot, and the Merkel Helix performed flawlessly. We are hoping to go back in 2 years to hunt a lion with Neil and Johan!
