South Carolina-based American Tactical Inc popped up in Las Vegas last month with a new and very handy single-shot rifle for 2023.

With styling similar to the company's well-liked $150ish American Tactical Nomad break-action shotgun series, the new Lashin rifle is about as basic a single-shot centerfire rifle as you can get. ATI reps told us the new rifle was made to be about as compact as possible, using a 17-inch barrel. Best yet, it is modular with the same frame usable with offered 5.56 NATO, .300 BLK, and .308 Winchester barrel options. It features easy synthetic furniture and a top rail for optics.

The MSRP on the Lashin is $419 with quantities shipping to dealers later this year. As such, it makes a good replacement for the hole left in the market when the similar NEF/H&R Handi Rifle halted production in 2014 after a successful 25-year run as one of the best-kept secrets in the rifle market.

About the only other players in the space are Henry's Single Shot, which is a bit more expensive, and CVA's Scout series, which is comparable in price but offered in different calibers than what the Lashin will bring.
