SHOT Show: Exciting New Rifles for 2013

With the 2013 SHOT Show well under way, our online staff has been tirelessly perusing the showrooms in search of some of the best new products about to hit the market.

Of course, we couldn't help but get our hands on some of the new rifles rolled out onto the showroom floor. Here are some of the hottest new rifles hitting the market in 2013.

Remington Model 783

Proving once and for all that a super-accurate hunting rifle doesn't necessarily need to be expensive, Remington's Model 783 features a new CrossFire trigger system factory set at 3.5 pounds, though it's also user adjustable from 2.5 to 5 pounds. The Model 783 is also fitted with a SuperCell recoil pad, and is available in .270 Win., .30-06 Springfield, .308 Win. and 7mm Rem. Mag.

Price: $451

Smith & Wesson M&P10

Go big or go home, I always say. Smith & Wesson's new M&P10 is chambered in .308 Win./7.62x51 and features ambidextrous mag releases and safeties, as well as an ambi bolt release. With a camo finish and a five-round mag, S&W's foray into the AR-10 market is an ideal hunting rifle.

Winchester Model 1873

'œThe Gun That Won the West' is back. The Winchester Model 1873 is a faithful reproduction of that old cowboy rifle, this time chambered in .357 Magnum and .38 Special. The Model 73's full-length mag tube will hold up to 10 rounds of .357 Mag., or 11 rounds of .38 Special. The Model 73 sports an oil-finished walnut stock, classic blued steel crescent butt plate and a 20-inch round barrel, just like the original.

Sako 85 Finnlight

Sako's 85 Finnlight rifle, which weighs just around 6 pounds, features a stainless steel fluted barrel and a lightweight synthetic stock. The 85 Finnlight is chambered in every major caliber from .22-250 to .30-06, making it the ideal rifle for just about any hunt. It can also be converted for lefties with an additional cheek piece. With a uniquely designed FinSoft recoil pad system, Sako has also reduced the typical recoil for a lightweight rifle.

Browning A-Bolt III

Browning's A-Bolt III retains a 60-degree bolt throw, has a top tang safety with locking trigger and features a bolt locking button, much like the X-Bolt. The three level trigger system comes set from the factory at 3 1/2 pounds and the A-Bolt also comes with a detachable box magazine. The A-Bolt III will be available in March.

Price: $599

CZ 527 in .17 Hornet

CZ-USA's 527 will be available in .17 Hornet in the American model, as well as the heavy barrel Varmint model, which both come with a five-round detachable magazine. The 527 features a Mauser-style bolt, integrated scope mounts and the CZ single trigger system for increased accuracy.

Price: $700

Ruger SR-556VT

Ruger\'s latest foray into the AR market, the Ruger SR-556VT (Varmint Target), features a two-stage piston with an adjustable regulator, and a target-style trigger. This .223/5.56 NATO rifle includes a Picatinny rail and a five-round capacity.

Price: [imo-slideshow gallery=39],995

Ruger M77 Hawkeye African

For 2013, Ruger is rolling out two variations of its popular M77 Hawkeye. The first, the M77 Hawkeye African, features a standard length action for a shorter bolt stroke and easier feeding.

Mag., the Magnum Hunter features a three-round capacity, a 44.75-inch overall length and a 24-inch barrel length.

Ruger Guide Gun
