In terms of design and functionality, Merkel’s short bolt action has gone its own way - the shortest way; and attracted much attention in the process. Typical of MEM rifles from Merkel. A traditional principle has been cast in a new form. The breech is extremely short, with a small opening angle. This enables rapid repeat shooting. The bolt carrier covers the lock and chamber and protects the action. The reliable rotary bolt head is a classic with high-level safety reserves - tested to 8,000 bar. The KR1 has some subtle features to facilitate transport: a quick release magazine, easy disassembly and handy transport dimensions, plus various mount possibilities and a modular calibre concept. Typical MEM - the good old Suhl genes.
