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 Explorer .308 Win. Rifle

Average Rating


by on April 17, 2014

This rifle is incredible, being able to operate the action without removing your head from the stock and losing sight picture is awesome! Cycles flawlessly and like butter. I would recommend however using the same ammunition it states on the certificate, mine said Norma 180gr Vulkan. Accuracy was above my expectations and handling was superb. I did however purchase the "Semi weight/heavy barrel. Dis-assembly and barrel and bolt changes are super fast as well. Merkel has set the benchmark extremely high for the other manufacturers and the price is a little higher than most people want to pay for a rifle in America, but its worth it.
