Rise Armament’s 1121XR chambered in the crowd favorite 6.5 Creedmoor is now officially shipping to consumers, the company said in a press release Tuesday.
The 6.5 Creedmoor rifle is in full production with the intent of giving rifle shooters more bang out of a gas firearm. The company said its reduced weight on the rifle, allowing it to be a portable platform with sub-1 MOA accuracy.
The 1121XR grants competitors and long ranger shooters the accuracy associated with a bolt-action gun while also producing quick and accurate follow-up shots. The company said big game hunters will also benefit from this platform as it maintains knock-down power at long distances.
“We’ve been looking forward to this day since we began discussing the 1121XR in 6.5 Creedmoor,” Matt Torres, president of Rise Armament, said in a press release. “Rise is extremely excited to make this firearm available to our customers.”
The rifle offers a 15-inch slim billet aluminum handguard that is M-LOK compatible. A Picatinny rail sits atop the rifle ready to accept a range of accessories. Outfitted with a Rise Armament RA-535 Advanced-Performance Trigger, the trigger boasts a 3.5-pound pull with crisp release and “virtually no overtravel.”
Finished with a durable Cerakote, the rifle comes in three colors — black, foliage green or flat dark earth. Weighing just over 10-pounds and measuring 44-inches in overall length, the rifle’s 22-inch barrel delivers a Rise Armament RA-701 Compensator.
The rifle is available through Rise Armament with a MSRP of $2,449.
