Nosler announced a new bolt-action handgun joined its inventory of firearms, introducing the Model 48 Nosler Custom Handgun earlier this week.

The M48 NCH is touted as the “ultimate precision bolt-action handgun.” Constructed from one-piece, billet aluminum stock, the mid-grip stock offers a rigid platform for the fully free-floated Shilen, 416 R stainless steel heavy contour barrel. The barrel is threaded at the muzzle and a thread protector ships alongside the rifle. Nosler says standard barrel size measures 15-inches; however, shorter or longer lengths between 12-inches and 18-inches are available upon request.

“Designed from the ground up by the engineers at Nosler with input from some of the most successful handgun hunters alive today, the M48 NCH is the answer to handgun hunters’ dreams. Each NCH is machined and built from U.S.-made parts by the accomplished gunsmiths at the Nosler Rifle division in Bend, Oregon,” Nosler said in a statement.

The rifle is built on the Model 48 short action, boasting similar features. Available in an array of short action calibers, the M48 NCH is best-suited for varmint hunting and silhouette shooting in addition to big game hunting.

Offering an overall length of 21-inches, the NCH weighs 5.4-pounds sans optics, mounts or accessories. Shipping in .22 Nosler, .24 Nosler, 7mm-08 Rem Mag, 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor and .308, the NCH comes in a variety of standard colors in addition to Cerakote colors for greater personalization.

The M48 by Nosler is available with a price tag of $2,495.

  1. Why would you ever want want a bolt action? I have been hunting for 35 years, and often hunt with a handgun. But a nice revolver would be my choice, never a bolt-action. I use a Smith & Wesson 686 Plus with a long barrel. I also have a Dan Wesson .357 Magnum with a long barrel. Both are excellent hunting pistols. I would never consider an awkward bolt action, especially one like this. It looks like it would be very difficult to operate, and to get a second shot off.

  2. Clone of a XP-100 that Remington made back in the day.
    I own one and love it! Modified 7mm BR. Easy to re-barrel Rem. actions!
    Price might be a little high!
    Makes buying a used XP worth the money.
    At least someone is trying to rebirth the bolt pistol!
    Go for Nosler!!!

  3. I have been thinking of building a 6mm creedmoor copy of the XP100 but with a left hand action for right hand shooting. This would put the bolt handle to what I think would allow me to continue to hold the grip to load for the next shot.
    The M48 is beyond my price mark.

    1. Yeah, their perfect weapon when going up against a criminal with any gun he wants because HE doesn’t CARE about their stupid gun laws!

  4. After the I.H.M.S.A. kinda ‘petered out’ years ago, many of us were left with XP-100’s and other bolt action pistols. I have one in 7br. and another in 7-IHMSA. During my competitive years, I also picked up a center grip piece of walnut that is as beautiful as any I’ve seen and will fit either action. The total price for the XP and iron sights and the stock was $625 (20 years ago). I can still shoot 8 out of 10 8″ steel plates at 200 meters with it, today.
    All the hunting I’ve ever done was with a handgun. I used either my .454 Casull or a T/C in a .30 JDJ.
    The Nosler is a good looker and I’m sure a good shooter as well, but IMHO, with the scope and bipod it looks like the hunter is just using a ‘short rifle’. Even Helen Keller could take a good buck at 100 yds. with that type of set-up.
    I’m happy for those who can afford the price tag, but I sure can’t.
    Good luck to Nosler. They make some impressive products and I hope they sell a million of these.

  5. This is cool I want to shoot one! I have been a handgun hunter for 35yrs nothing compares to the challenge! Something new to shoot thanks nosler.I’ll take the 6.5 dressed in Orange.

  6. Thanks Nosler. I’ve got one of your bolt action pistols on order in 6 Creedmoor. I can’t wait to shoot it. Thank you especially for using quality components and ingenuous ideas in it’s construction. Looking forward to putting a scope on it and sending some rounds down range.
