[SHOT 2022] Bushmaster BA-30 Straight-Pull, Bolt-Action Rifle
Adam Scepaniak 01.19.22
When people think of Bushmaster firearms they begin to conjure up images of AR-15s, the famous ACR, and even .50 Cal rifles. One firearm platform that does not come to mind is a straight-pull, bolt-action rifle which is what makes it so surprising that they debuted the Bushmaster BA-30 at “Industry Day at the Range” for SHOT Show 2022.

The Bushmaster BA-30 utilizes a spring-assisted bolt so you only have to move the straight-pull bolt rearward to eject a shell casing. Then, it automatically launches forward to chamber another round for you. While out at SHOT Show we all got to handle and shoot this new wonder gun, but it is stated that it will not be available to the public until early 2nd Quarter of this year.
