Nosler Model 48 Legacy

Description

The Nosler Model 48 Legacy is a bolt-action rifle available in 8 chamberings. It is one of five rifles currently sold by Nosler.

It uses Nosler’s Model 48 action, a proprietary push-feed action, which is unique in that as the bolt pushes the round towards the chamber, the extractor does not grab the rim of the cartridge until the bolt is completely forward and locked. It doesn’t really affect the smoothness of the action but does cater to one’s preference. Some prefer the push-feed action over a control-round feed action (which does the opposite). Accompanying the action is a Rifle Basix brand trigger that sets off the action with a 3-pound pull.

The Nosler Model 48 Legacy features a glass-pillar bedded black walnut stock. Pillar bedded stocks use aluminum or metal sleeves against which the action screws can be tightened, providing an overall tighter fit and eliminating friction between the stock and action. The Legacy also has a free floating chrome-moly barrel–a durable type of steel. Because a free floating barrel does not abut the stock, barrel heating and swelling will not compromise stock integrity over time. External metal surfaces are coated with Cerakote brand ceramic-based coating for increased durability. Internal metal surfaces are coated with Micro Slick brand dry-film lubricant, reducing friction and wear. The Legacy is also equipped with a Pachmayr Decelerator brand recoil pad. The stock includes a palm swell, cheekpiece and slender fore-end.

Nosler recommends the Model 48 Legacy for general hunting.
