Ashbury's New SPR-308 and SPR-308K1 SABER Precision Rifles

APO introduces the SABER® Precision Rifle (SPR) line based on its new SX bolt action receiver. The SABER SX is Ashbury’s first in a new line of octagonal precision manufactured bolt action receivers for calibers up to short magnum chamberings. The SPR-308 uses the latest innovation in the patented SABER®-FORSST® modular rifle chassis system (MRCS), an interlocking action/chassis design. SPR precision rifles are ideal for law enforcement agencies seeking to enhance their tactical long gun capabilities or practical rifle shooters requiring a versatile ergonomic precision rifle platform with modular upgradeability.

The core of Ashbury’s SPR-308 platform is the precision CNC machined SABER SX bolt action receiver, a newly engineered octagonal manufacturing collaboration with Stiller’s Precision Firearms that accepts two styles of detachable box magazines. The fire control mechanism on SPR-308 rifles is an adjustable single-stage trigger, set to a crisp 3.5lbs. The SPR-308 is hand crafted by a team of specially trained former USMC 2112 Precision Rifle Technicians, engineers and experienced machinists to exacting standards and precision tolerances that deliver consistent sub ½ MOA performance with RUAG’s 168gr Swiss-P Target and other premium grade match ammunitions.

The SPR-308 is a rugged precision rifle designed to produce optimum accuracy with 150 to 200 grain projectiles for a variety of precision shooting pursuits. Using proprietary barrel engineering software, APO designed the 20 inch Pinnacle Series contour, fluted barrel in 416R stainless steel for this potent package. The 1-in-10” twist 5R barrel is chambered in .308Win Match and finished with a recessed target crown reminiscent of the revered USMC M40A1 sniper rifle. SPR cartridge chambers and (optional) threaded muzzles are precisely machined to a straightness of less than 0.0002 of an inch, true to the centerline of the barrel bore.
