The Expedition rifle I saw from Fort Discovery is custom machined from 7000 series precision CNC aircraft billet aluminum and tumbled after machining to ensure a smooth finish. It has an ergonomically designed mag release that’s easier to use while wearing gloves and there’s a custom magwell with four “grit grooves” designed for optimal reloading. The Expedition rifle is optics-ready with rear-folding back-up sight enabling the shooter to utilize either optics or traditional open style sights. All internal parts and trigger are crafted to Mil-Spec standards. A custom Fort Discovery challenge coin, which has the matching serial number of the rifle, is included. Every “Expedition” rifle is individually hand-crafted and assembled in the U.S.A. It goes through the highest level of quality control to ensure that you can always rely on this rifle.
