American Tactical recently announced the company will offer two new bolt-action rifle systems from Black Creek Labs. The MRX Bronco and TRX Bronco Hunter bring two takes on utilitarian rifle packages, one for the range, and one of the backcountry rifle packages, each with a host of upgraded components.
Black Creek Labs Bronco Bolt Guns
“We’re excited to introduce the Black Creek Labs TRX Bronco Hunter and MRX Bronco to the market,” said Tony DiChario, President of American Tactical. “These rifles offer unparalleled accuracy and versatility in their class, making them perfect for a variety of applications. With their innovative design and top-of-the-line features, we’re confident that the TRX Bronco Hunter and MRX Bronco will be a hit with shooters and hunters alike.”
Black Creek Labs bills the MRX Bronco as “ideal for range shooting, varmint and small game.” As such, it comes in a compact package, sporting a 16.5-inch, medium weight barrel. An M-LOK-compatible handguard provides plenty of accessory attachment points. The rifle feeds from AR-15 magazines, chambered in 300 BLK, 7.62×39 or 5.56mm. It comes fitted with a TriggerTech REM700 field trigger and Black Creek guarantees 1.2 MOA accuracy with suggested commercial ammunition. A collapsible PDS (Personal Defense System) stock rounds out this impressive package priced at $1,199.
TRX Bronco Hunter
The TRX Bronco Hunter comes built for the backcountry. It features a two-piece, Bronco adaptable chassis system with a 10-inch forend, built from aircraft-grade aluminum. It also features a folding that uniquely captures the bolt handle when folded. The resulting package proves compact, ready for a pack and field use. The TRX Bronco Hunter feeds from high-capacity AR-10/SR-25 magazines. Additionally, the FSS stock can be made to lock the safety in the “safe” position, delivering extra levels of security when stowed or stored.
The TRX Bronco Hunter utilizes the Black Creek TRX Short action. It chambers both .308 or 6.5 Creedmoor. The company ships the rifle with a 1 MOA accuracy guarantee. It also comes with a TriggerTech REM700 field trigger, helping shooters reach that accuracy potential. The rifle retails for $1,499.
