Our Assessment: Nesika actions have been well-known for decades to the world’s elite competitive shooting teams such as the Army Marksmanship Unit and other civilian competitors. In fact, in 2003, Benchrest champion Kyle Brown shot a 10-shot, 1,000-yard group that measured under 4.25”. Nesika actions are used by the finest rifle manufacturers in the world to build extremely accurate rifles. The same technology used in the manufacture of the actions has been incorporated into the Nesika line of rifles. The heart of the rifle is a Nesika action mated to a match grade stainless steel barrel. The same level of quality, manufacturing expertise and inspection requirements used in the manufacture of the actions is applied to rifle building. Nesika breaks in the barrel and test-fires all rifles for accuracy and reliability prior to shipping. This ensures that the rifle you receive will exceed your expectations.
