Weapons of the New Confederacy: Semi-Auto Rifle

The NC Model 81 – chambered in 300 Savage

This recoil-operated rifle features a rotating bolt with dual lugs that locks into the rear portion of the barrel. When the gun is fired, the barrel, bolt and bolt-carrier assembly recoils all at once, allowing the bullet to exit the barrel before the mechanism unlocks. During this operation a couple of heavy springs inside a sheetmetal covering surrounding the barrel are compressed.

It’s a very efficient, powerful setup and provides reliable semiauto function. There’s no gas system to worry about, and the piece works well under some pretty adverse conditions with a minimum of maintenance.
