Rock River Arms today announced a new precision rifle configuration that, according to the company, “delivers unprecedented factory long-range accuracy and the ability to work with two of the leading long-range cartridges—the .308 Win. and the .338 Lapua.”

The new XM24 Tactical bolt-action rifle is designed to meet the requirements of defense professionals and special tactics members. Designed around MDT’s ESS non-folding chassis for maximum rigidity, the XM24 Tactical incorporates a 26-inch, heavy-contour stainless-steel barrel that has been air-gauged for maximum bore precision, cryo-treated for molecular stability and predictable harmonics, as well as a black matte nitride finish. Additionally, bullet stabilization comes from 1:10-inch (.308 Win.) and 1:9.5-inch (.338 Lapua) twist rates.

Overall weight of the Rock River Arms XM24 Tactical bolt-action rifle (MSRP: $5,265) is 13.2 pounds and it is 46¼ inches long.


The XM24 Tactical’s barrel is secured to a proprietary Remington 700-style receiver via a barrel nut system that the company says “delivers solid and precise fitment and alignment.” A crow-foot wrench is included for barrel nut removal and installation. An oversized bolt handle and precision single-stage TriggerTech Primary trigger system provide the control management.

Optic mounting for the XM24 Tactical bolt-action is via an included 20-MOA base scope rail, while the rifle is fed through a single-stack, five-round detachable box magazine.

Rock River says the XM24 Tactical bolt-action rifle has guaranteed accuracy potential of less than ½ MOA when using premium ammunition.

MSRP for the Rock River Arms XM24 Tactical bolt-action rifle is $5,265. Go to to learn more.
