Cody, Wyoming’s GunWerks this week lifted the curtain on their new ThumpR bolt action rifle package. The ThumpR, which the company says will be produced in limited quantities, is designed with smaller-framed users in mind but can be easily swapped out to different configurations.
The “easy” part of such a swap comes from the fact that the rifle ships with a pair of interchangeable stock options– one ultralight carbon fiber and the second a short length of pull fiberglass– as well as two interchangeable bottom metal options to allow for either a traditional hinged floorplate or use of a tactical mag.
Using a titanium GLR action short-action in popular 6.5 Creedmoor with a 16.5-inch carbon fiber wrapped barrel, the rifle comes standard with a Nightforce ATACR F2 4-16x50mm scope. All-up weight is 8.4-pounds while the length is just 36-inches overall, making the gun about as long as an M1 Carbine.
The 16.5-inch carbon fiber-wrapped barrel is suppressor-ready with 5/8x24TPI threads and a protective thread cap
The ThumpR also ships with a waterproof travel hard case with custom cut foam. The MSRP
