Juggernaut Tactical – one of the most popular (and few) firearm manufacturers in California – has just set free their newest addition to the public. The new product? A JTP Precision rifle that chambers 6.5 Creedmoor.
This brand new rifle is making long range shooters all over the nation begin to drool – especially since it showed up at SHOT show last week in Vegas.
The firearm features a Dracos barrel. This is particularly rare, as Juggernaut Tactical typically makes and uses its own barrels on their firearms. However, the Dracos barrel has been specifically chosen because of its incredible reputation and prowess in the firearms industry.
One of the reasons the barrel is so effective comes from how it’s made. With a combination of gel and aluminum, it insulates the barrel and protects it from getting too hot. But you’ll never have to worry about the gel oozing out of the barrel, seeing as the manufacturers cure the gel before finishing.
The rifle also features a light Olive Drab color, with American flags inside of the dust cover and on the side of the mag-well.
The rifle also contains “anti-walking” pins, which link two pins together using a crossbar. This helps prevent them from slipping.
As Guns.com states:
“(Dracos) guarantees their barrels at sub-MOA at ridiculous distances and for a ridiculous amount of time. And we could not make a barrel that was as good as that one, so we used Dracos barrel for our precision rifle,” [Juggernaut representative Robert Griffin] said. “It’s a phenomenal barrel.”
The new precision rifle is also equipped with slick new feature that’s now standard on all Juggernaut rifles: the Hellfire ambidextrous charging handle. Griffin called it a “true ambidextrous” charging handle. “If you see other ones that are out there right now, they say that they’re ambidextrous, but this is a true ambi,” Griffin said, adding that with a typical ambi design there’s one side inoperable.
“There’s a master side and a slave side, so unless this one is engaged, this one doesn’t work, because it’s just a slave. It only responds to if this one is being activated,” he said as he pulled back on the charging handle with either hand.
Griffin explained the challenge in re-designing the handle was figuring out how to manipulate the functionality within the receiver. “That was a pain in the ass to figure out how to get that to operate inside there, I’ll be honest. The internal workings of the two cams. It was quite a feat,” he said.
According to Griffin, the new Juggernaut Precision rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor and the Hellfire charging handle will be available at the company’s website. The rifle retails for $3,300 and they’ll ship it to dealers around the country.”
