Crafted Precision

Hunter series rifles use an RPA 3 shot ‘drop box’ magazine and are available in a range of calibres. The GP hunter is available in a left or right handed configuration. The TH Hunter is only available in right hand configuration. All RPA triggers have a 2 stage mechanism, with a positive first stage and crisp release it is also equipped with a 2-position safety catch.

RPA uses match grade stainless steel barrels from quality manufacturers with a proven record of performance. Barrels are fluted as standard which improves the balance of the rifle and enhances cooling. The barrel muzzle is threaded 17mm x 1mm to allow for the easy fitting of a muzzle brake or suppressor.

Hunter series rifle stocks are designed for rough handling, poor weather conditions and are crafted from an epoxy with glass and Kevlar reinforcement, finished with a durable epoxy gel-coat outer layer before final textured 2 part paint finish.

Standard colour is black, other colours to special order. The Hunter series rifles have a fixed butt plate with spacers as standard. All exposed aluminium parts are anodised for durability and protection against the elements.
