The bolt-action-rifle is the standard rifle of today’s hunter – and this is the reason not to go with the standard here. As the basic-rifle, the bolt-action has to fulfil a wide range of requirements, from waiting hunting to the driven hunt, all the way to mountain hunting and safari. It is therefore more of a rifle-system-solution than a gun. The hunter compiles his bolt-action for his hunting grounds or his next hunting project and utilises a range of system components for this. Merkel has set new standards with the HELIX in this hunting rifle category – the slender linear bolt-action rifle from Suhl shines in ergonomics, handiness, safety, travel usability and fast, intuitive shooting.
