Rx.Helix wins Petersen's Editors Choice Award
Centerfires: Merkel RX Helix
The Merkel RX Helix combines Old World beauty with a new straight-pull bolt-action design that is, perhaps, one of the only truly innovative rifle designs to be unveiled this year. The Helix employs a rotating bolt head with six locking lugs. Moving the bolt handle transmits motion to the bolt head at a ratio of two-to-one thanks to a revolutionary transmission gearing system. It cycles silky-smooth and lightning fast. Oh, itís also a takedown. It is available in three action lengths and 12 calibers, from .222 to 9.3x62.
