New Rifles Coming in 2024

New Rifles - SHOT Show 2024

When manufacturers up their game, everyone benefits.

By Eve Flanigan

Firearm consumers are an increasingly educated lot, with many shooters opting for specific guns, chamberings, and features for narrowly defined pursuits and styles rather than one do-it-all rifle, handgun, or shotgun. Today’s manufacturers have met that sophisticated audience by upping their game, offering a broader range of features on familiar but often sleeker platforms than ever before. In the past year-plus, we’ve come to expect to see optics-ready slides on handguns for nearly every budget, and it’s now normal to see a mix of tactical, technical, and traditional features on the same firearm so that every gun owner can have what’s perfectly suited to them. Here is a look at some of the many new rifle models that consumers will want to see in your store in 2024. 

American Tactical

By their own description, ATI has stepped up their game with the addition of a bolt-action gun to their product offerings. The TRX Bronco is a chassis-built rifle with a folding stock, an AR10-compatible box magazine, and a 16.5-inch barrel. Chamberings include .308 Winchester and 6.5 Creedmoor. It weighs 6.9 pounds and has a one-inch MOA accuracy guarantee. Available in black or tan. SRP: $1,499.95.

Benelli

The Lupo HPR is designed to set a new benchmark for a factory-guaranteed sub-MOA (3/4-inch, five-shot) long-range shooting and hunting bolt-action rifle. Based on the Benelli Lupo Chassis system, the HPR is chambered for the most popular long-range calibers (6.5 PRC, 6.5 CRD, .338 LM, .300 PRC, .300 WM, and .308 Win.). The new Lupo HPR matches a custom-fit stock system with a heavy-contour straight-fluted CRIO barrel to deliver a long-range rifle that incorporates the function of a chassis rifle with the handling grace and accuracy of a custom bolt-action.

Bergara

The Bergara B-14 Crest series of rifles will be available in two versions. The Crest Carbon rifles feature a carbon-fiber barrel with an Omni muzzle brake and a fluted bolt. Available calibers are .308 Win., 6.5 Creedmoor, .22-250, 6.5 PRC, .300 Win. Mag., and 7PRC. SRP: $2,099-$2,149.

There are nine versions of the B-14 Stoke Compact rifles. Rifles in .308, 6.5 Creedmoor, .243, .22-250, 7mm-08, and 6.5 PRC feature synthetic stocks, 20-inch barrels, a hinged floor-plate magazine, and a Bergara Performance Trigger. Stoke Compact rifles that carry the SP (special purpose short barrel) designation feature 12.5-inch barrels mated to synthetic stocks. Each also features an AICS detachable magazine and a Bergara Performance Trigger. SRP: $899. The rifle also comes with ¼-inch spacers that allow the stock to be customized to the individual shooter.

Bilson Arms 

Bilson Arms, a Louisiana gun-making company born from oil and gas extraction technology, also made a significant mark on pistol caliber carbine design with their BA-9FC. Like many other PCCs, it’s gas-blowback operated. But unlike any other, its charging handle/bolt-opening device is on the forend. Think pump action shotgun to load the first round or unload before a mag runs dry. Otherwise, the handle does not reciprocate; the action runs in semi-auto mode thanks to the buffer spring. Designer and builder Billy Angers was inspired to innovate after seeing a friend who competes in matches with a PCC lose a high placing thanks to a double-feed malfunction. With the BA-9FC, double feeds can be cleared by racking the forend and not even breaking cheek weld/target focus. SRP: $1,550.

Browning

The X-Bolt 2 Speed Ovix rifle utilizes a reconfigured receiver that provides a smoother bolt operation as well as a DLX trigger that features a multiple-lever design that optimizes sear weight and trigger movement to provide a more consistent and crisper trigger break. The result is zero creep, zero take-up, and zero overtravel. The trigger is also adjustable down to three pounds on hunting rifles. 

The Vari-Tech Stock features a modular grip design that allows the user to swap out a sporter (traditional-style) grip for a vertical-style grip. Furthermore, the stock features an adjustable length of pull (by removing the recoil pad and adding or subtracting moving internal spacers) and an adjustable comb height. Other features include an Ovix Camo pattern, a smoked-bronze Cerokote receiver and barrel, and a fluted, sporter contour barrel.

Chiappa Firearms

The Badger family adds a new member–Big Badger. The Big Badger folding single-shot firearms are offered in three different configurations: 350 Legend, .30-30, or .410 bore. The rifled versions feature a 20-inch threaded barrel compatible with M13.5×1 LH suppressors. The shotgun version features a 20-inch barrel with a fixed fiber-optic front sight and includes three interchangeable Beretta/Benelli Mobil chokes. All configurations feature the M-LOK system integrated in the forend along with a top and bottom Picatinny rail for mounting optics and accessories. Each model is equipped with a generous rubber recoil pad, crossbolt safety, and a 5/16-inch steel-rod stock with an adjustable comb. When folded, the Big Badger measures approximately 19.25 inches long by 6 inches wide.

For 2024, Christensen is adding long-action calibers to the line. New chamberings include .300 Winchester Magnum, .300 Precision Rifle Cartridge, 7mm Precision Rifle Cartridge, and 7mm Remington Magnum.

Mitchell Defense

Mitchell Defense is a relatively new veteran-owned/operated manufacturer based in Pennsylvania. Nathan Mitchell holds reliable function as the top priority of his guns, with each model being subjected to a 10,000-round zero-failure test before being approved for final production and sale. His latest model is the Rat Dog pistol-caliber carbine. The name is inspired by SARC (Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsmen) who are renowned for stalwart performance in extreme conditions. The Rat Dog operates with direct blowback action and uses the same silent buffer tube as the company’s carbines. A solid-piece weighted bolt carrier group is key to its reliability. There are four variants, NFA-regulated and not, in the Rat Dog line. SRP: $1,750-$1,860.

FN 

FN has stepped out with a new chambering of their venerable SCAR design with a limited-production model of the SCAR 17S Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR) in 6.5 Creedmoor. This version includes premium upgrades from the SCAR 20S precision line, specifically a two-stage Geissele Super SCAR trigger and precision buttstock assembly with customizable cheek height and length of pull.

The 17S DMR maintains maneuverability thanks to components like a 16.25-inch, cold-hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrel and monolithic aluminum receiver. Flip-up polymer sights are included. It incorporates the modern SCAR’s non-reciprocating charging handles for its short-stroke gas piston operating system. The handles are located on both sides for ambidextrous use. Weighing in at 9.5 pounds and 36.8 inches long, the 17S DMR continues the SCAR tradition as one of the larger contenders in the carbine category. SRP: $4,629.

A Modern Sporting Rifle is a brand-new addition to the FN product line. It’s called FN 15 Guardian. This AR-platform direct-impingement-action carbine is chambered in 5.56 NATO. In its design FN set out to create a high-performing defensive carbine at a reasonable price. The 6.6-pound FN 15 Guardian is made for easy handling and has rounded corners and no forward assist to resist snagging. Premium features include 15 inches of free-floating aluminum M-LOK handguard and a 16-inch MIL-B-11595 CMV barrel. The button-broached hybrid-profile barrel has a 1:7 twist and is topped by an A2 flash hider. A 30-round magazine is included. FN promises sub-MOA accuracy from the Guardian. SRP: $999.

Mossberg

Classically styled Patriot rifles offer premium features—such as patented LBA-adjustable triggers, threaded barrels, spiral fluted bolts, streamlined and checkered bolt handles, and four-round box magazines—at a great value. New for 2024 are a pair of Patriot rifles (one with a synthetic stock, the other with a walnut stock) chambered for the 400 Legend straight-wall cartridge. This flat-shooting cartridge is capable of effectively sending its 215-grain bullet at 2,250 fps out to between 200 to 250 yards. These two rifles are obvious choices for deer hunters, but will also be a good option for those who hunt feral hogs as well as bears at close range.

Primary Weapons Systems 

The UXR Weapon Platform with XCHANGE has been designed to offer both modularity and performance. The XCHANGE buttstock module features a Picatinny/1913/STANAG rail-mount interface. The six-position ambidextrous foldable stock offers adjustable length of pull and QD sling cups, one-inch webbing sling-slot mount, rubber buttpad, and a two-position height-adjustable cheek rest. The fire-control housing module has an interchangeable pistol-grip mount, ambidextrous QD sling cups, and an oversized trigger guard for gloved use. The trigger housing is compatible with most AR15 triggers, and the magazine well uses exchange modules to accommodate 5.56 NATO or 7.62 NATO magazines.

The XCHANGE barrel-exchange system allows the user to swap calibers and barrel lengths rapidly with standard tooling while maintaining repeatability and accuracy, and the ambidextrous three-position rocker valve on a modified long-stroke gas system lets the user select gas settings effortlessly. The evacuation chamber supports suppressed and high rate of fire by removing noxious gasses from the operator’s face and keeping the operating system cleaner.

Available configurations include a large magwell configuration (6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win., 8.6 BLK; a STANAG magwell configuration (5.56 NATO/.223 Rem, 300 BLK, 6.5 Grendel, 6mm ARC; and an AK magwell configuration (7.62×39 and 5.45×39).

Rossi 

Rossi strikes a practical chord with their new bolt-action .22 LR, the RB 22 Compact. It has a 16-inch barrel, 10-round magazine, and a short length of pull on the polymer stock, making it suitable for varmint control, recreation, or educating new shooters. A forward-set adjustable rear notch sight sets this rifle apart in the appearance category. At just 3.7 pounds, this rifle is ready to be carried afield even by youth hunters. SRP: $185.99.

Savage Arms

As the name suggests, the 110 Ultralite Elite is a ready-to-carry gun for backcountry hunters that ranges in weight from 5.8 to 6 pounds, depending on caliber. Other weight-saving features include 18- to 20-inch carbon-fiber Proof barrels and a skeletonized carbon-fiber stock. Offered in six popular chamberings. SRP: $3,299.

On the budget side of the 110 bolt-gun lineup (SRP: $629) is the new Trail Hunter. Available in a dizzying choice of 15 chamberings with a textured, forest-green Hogue stock, the rifle boasts such popular features as a threaded barrel, tungsten-color Cerakoted action, sling studs, and Weaver-style bases. 

Klym is the name of a new bolt-action sub-series. This line is unmistakable in appearance thanks to a modern carbon-fiber keyhole-style stock, carbon fiber-wrapped barrel, and carbon-fiber forend. SRP: $2,699. The Impulse series sports a straight-pull bolt that can be moved for ambidextrous operation. SRP: $3,299. 

Also new from Savage is the A22 Takedown FDE. This .22 LR semi-auto with an 18-inch barrel has easy twist-apart takedown convenience, plus a bevy of storage compartments.

Smith & Wesson

Smith & Wesson took their time getting into the pistol caliber carbine market, but when they did, they advanced PCC design. The Response PCC sports tried-and-true Magpul furniture on the rear and a 16-inch barrel up front. At first glance it’s a typical-looking PPC. The difference, though, is in the receiver, which has a fully interchangeable magazine well. This allows the current M&P user to run their own double stack mags in the gun along with its 23-round included mag. Or, change out the trademarked FLEXMAG mag well, and the Response can run Glock magazines. SRP: $799. Booth #12427 (smith-wesson.com)

Springfield Armory 

Springfield Armory recently introduced two new options for the Hellion bullpup, giving those who yearn for better ballistics with their 5.56 ammo some satisfaction. The new Hellion choices have 18- and 20-inch barrels. 

Staying true to the inspiration behind the semi-auto Hellion, the Croatian VHS-2 full auto, the 20-inch barrel Hellion adopts features of the VHS-D2, the designated marksman version of the VHS-2. It sports a ribbed forward area of the barrel to enhance cooling and has an integral bayonet lug. SRP: $2,016, 18-inch version; $2,031, 20-inch version. 

Also from Springfield Armory is a brand-new line called Model 2020 Redline hunting rifles. Current models are chambered in 5.56 NATO and .308 Winchester. Redline rifles replicate the classic scout rifle design:  short and handy with a forward-set scope/optic Picatinny rail for good maneuverability and maintenance of peripheral vision in brush and other types of cover.

Carbon fiber runs strong in this line. Barrels of Redline model rifles are carbon fiber, floated, threaded, and capped with a recoil-buffering brake. Hand-painted carbon-fiber stocks from AG Composites lend a distinctive look. Length of pull is adjustable from 13.25 to 14.25 inches with included spacers and even longer with separately available spacers. These rifles have guaranteed accuracy from 0.75 MOA. SRP: $2,299.
