Viking Arms – The Helix Speedster
The HELIX Speedster, with its new revolutionary synthetic stock strikes out in a new direction as a hunting rifle.
The Helix Speedster combines the fast straight-pull action of the Helix with a thumbhole stock development which bypasses all ergonomic disadvantages of the classic thumbhole constructs. As an “encore” the new model comes with an automatically height adjustable cheek-piece with memory function and many intelligent details.
The top-opened OmegaGrip combines two classic stock principles into an ergonomic and fast novelty. Because the good ergonomics during the shot of classic thumbhole stock constructs only reveals its disadvantages when reloading: During fast bolt action, the threading in and out of the thumb into the hole is obstructive.
The new SpeedStock of the HELIX Speedster eliminates this problem. The thumb slides as if on rails along the ergonomic stock shape into shooting position on the OmegaGrip as well as out of it when reloading. The automatically adjustable stock comb can be adjusted in its height at the push of a button, an important advantage for shooting with a scope.
Available in all calibres, the Helix comes with the following features as standard:
- Bolt head with six locking lugs
- Manual cocking lever
- Direct trigger
- Standard calibre 560mm (17mm barrel) with driven hunt sight
- Integrated picatinny rail 3 round magazine
- Sling swivels
