American Tactical’s new MRX Bronco bolt-action rifle from Black Creek Labs is priced at $1,199 and is billed by the company as ideal for “range shooting, varmint and small game.”

The MRX Bronco is a compact rifle built for range shooting and small game hunting. It sports a 16½-inch, medium-weight barrel and M-LOK compatible handguard. The rifle feeds from AR-15 magazines and is available chambered in .300 Blackout, 7.62x39 mm or 5.56 mm NATO. The MRX Bronco is fitted with a TriggerTech REM700 field trigger and is guaranteed to shoot 1.2 MOA with suggested commercial ammunition. In addition, the MRX Bronco comes with a collapsible PDS (Personal Defense System) stock for easy on the range adjustment.

Also debuting in American Tactical’s Black Rifle Labs lineup is the TRX Bronco Hunter bolt-action rifle specifically designed for backcountry hunting. It features a two-piece, Bronco adaptable chassis system with a 10-inch fore-end made of aluminum, and is fitted with a TriggerTech REM700 field trigger. The rifle also has a folding stock that captures the bolt handle when folded. The TRX Bronco Hunter feeds from high capacity AR-10/SR25 mags, eliminating the requirement for extra mags or loose ammunition. Additionally, the FSS stock can be made to lock the safety in the “safe” position, making it unable to fire when the stock is folded. The TRX Bronco Hunter uses the Black Creek TRX Short action, which can be chambered in .308 Win. or 6.5 mm Creedmoor. It is guaranteed to shoot one MOA with suggested commercial ammunition. Price is $1,499.
