The AX338 AXMC.338 Lapua features a 26" Match Grade Barlein Barrel in a 1:9.5 twist rifle system. Rifle includes a Forend Mounting System, 30 MOA Picatinny Rail, Fully Adjustable Folding Stock, Two-Stage Trigger and a 10 Round magazine. Bipods, Butt Spikes and Custom Case are optional items sold separately. AX rifle systems come in three different colors- Black, OD Green and Pale Brown. Custom packages with optics and mounts are also available. Some rifles will take an additional build time.
The Accuracy International AX is the latest in a long and distinguished line of combat proven sniper rifles, the AX series comprises of the stand-alone AX308 (.308 Win) and the multi caliber AXMC, a .338 Lapua and .300 Win Mag with the capability of switching calibers and barrel length's in minutes simply by changing the barrel, bolt and magazine/insert. The AX308 is also a multi caiber rifle capabale of interchanging between barrel lengths and calibers of the same casing size (6.5 Creedmore, 243 Win, 260 Rem and 6mm).
The Accuracy International AX Rifle System is perhaps the world's strongest and most reliable weapon. The machined action is bonded to a full length alloy chassis system for brutal strength in even the harshest environments. Every component is manufactured from corrosion resistant material or given a protective finish prior to assembly, ensuring an AXMC rifle will perform reliably and consistently whether used for marine operations, in the desert or the arctic. The AX System is the first choice for professional users in elite units worldwide.
Accuracy International was started in 1978 by a group of national and international target shooters, one of which was a two time Olympic Gold Medalist. Designed by shooters, for shooters. The original design's ethos combined two factors into a unique package: namely the incorporation of performance enhancing features learned in Olympic and international target shooting onto a rifle platform exhibiting full militarty ruggedness. The current designs are faithful to the orginal concept but also benefit from thirty years of continuous improvement. These advances are not cosmetic but are driven by the needs of users, highly trained military and police units in over 60 countries world-wide. On a daily basis such units are exposed to "live" tactical situations in the most demanding environments where first shot accuracy is critical. All componets are manufactured to Accuracy Internaional designs to ensure that they must perform, something that cannot be achieved with a ruggedished sporting weapon.
The AX and AXMC features a Bartlein Match Grade free floating barrel. Bartlein Barrels make some of the finest barrels in the world, widely used by Elite Military Units, Law Enforcement Agencies and Competitive Shooters. Barrels can be changed in less than a minute using the 4mm hex key allowing the user to shoot different calibers and barrel lengths out of the same rifle.

5. Pistol Grip:
User configurable in minutes with replaceable pistol grip backstraps.
The Rifle is fitted with a battle-proven two-stage trigger, which allows a large sear engagement to be maintained until the user takes up the first stage. This reduces the chance of an accidental discharge if the the rifle is jolted when cocked. The trigger is adjustable for the pull weights of 3.3-4.4LB (1.5-2.0kg). The trigger assembly can be easily removed for cleaning bu undoing the two socket head cap screws.
7. Safety Mechanism:
A three-position safety mechanism is fitted to the rifle. The first (rear) position blocks the firing pin and locks the bolt in the closed position. The second (mid) position blocks the firing pin, but allows the bolt to be operated so a live round may be removed from the chamber with the weabon in a safe condition. The third (forward) position allows the weapon to be fired. The safety will only operate when the bolt is cocked.
8. 10-Round Magazine:
One detachable steel magazine is included. This industry-leading design is corrosion resistant and low friction for reliable feeding.
9. Quickloc Barrel Release:
The patent pending release allows for quick barrel removal and refit. (using the 4mm hex key stored in the cheekpiece) The AXMX is a multi-role rifle letting the user switch between barrel lengths and calibers within less than one minute in the field. The AX 300 and 338 Lapua can both convert to any smaller caliber. The AX 308 can only convert to calibers of similar casing size.

When a customer selects an Accuracy International rifle, it’s because consistency, reliability and high performance are critical to the task in hand.
"Form Follows Funtion" is a concept just as applicable to product designs as it is to architecture. At Accuracy International, they pride themselves upon understanding the necessary "function" of their products by staying in constant contact with the community that uses them and using the knowledge they gain as the starting point for their design process. Some things are fundamental: given the nature of their use, sniper rifles must be highly accurate, rugged and reliable. Consequently these characteristics are incorporated into every product they make.
To achieve these goals requires the deployment of advanced tools and methodologies. AI employs world class computer aided design and analysis tools to optimize function and durability. By combining these methods with advanced prototyping technology on site, AI can rapidly assess and compare a large number of design options, and iterate towards the optimum design concept. AI’s prototype development processes are enhanced by the use of a high speed video camera that allows its engineers to analyze the behavior of the products in exquisite detail, whether it be visualizing the gas flow through a muzzle brake, seeing how the rifle chassis flexes when dropped, or capturing the movement of the firing mechanism. Only by understanding the performance of the weapon to this degree can AI take its product designs to the next level!
The foundation of AI’s approach to manufacturing is a culture of continuous improvement and employee involvement based upon the teachings of W. Edwards Deming, who transformed Japanese manufacturing processes in Japan after WW2. Deming’s philosophy is built around key principles ultimately aimed at bringing value to the customer. They include building quality into the product at the design stage and focusing on it throughout the production process, identifying all of the steps in the process chain, making the processes flow efficiently and striving for perfection by continually identifying and eliminating waste.
To achieve this, AI deploys quality and statistical tools based on the Six Sigma methods developed by Motorola in 1986 and strict compliance with the ISO 9001 quality management system.
These methods are the foundations of the entire manufacturing process and besides dramatically improving the quality of the products, they deliver other benefits as well. In the worlds of the well know consultant Philip B Crosby, “Quality is Free”. Far from increasing the costs of the manufacturing process, these methods actually produce dramatic efficiencies by:
Significantly reducing scrap and rework
Reducing the sizes of the stock and work in progress inventories
Minimizing warranty costs
Application of these methods is complemented by a continuing investment in tooling and machinery to make the best use of the latest technologies to enhance product quality and productivity. Since its reorganization, AI has invested in machinery, technology and people to bring more component manufacturing in-house, particularly for items critical to product quality and performance.
To have total control of the quality of the product, AI also partners with key suppliers to assist them with developing processes for component manufacture and to gain their expertise in improving its own internal processes.
