Although we all love having more than one gun, it can be nice when a specific firearm is designed for multi-caliber use. The LaRue Tactical Enhanced Siete is a bolt-action rifle made for quick caliber changes and stellar performance. The renowned gun maker made the rifle to take up to five calibers using their quick-change system. It’s a bolt-action rifle capable of far more versatility than most.

LaRue Tactical provides the following details of the rifle:

The Siete’s CNC-machined Billet Action is mated into our CNC-machined aluminum chassis combined with a Precision LaRue Match-Grade Barrel. The 23” quick-change barrel is a 6.5 CM medium-weight contour with a 1/8 twist rifling and a (5/8-24) threaded muzzle. Included in the kit is a preset (40 ft lb) LaRue-made Torque Wrench and Action Bar for easy caliber changes. Once torqued properly, a small portal on the handguard aligns with the caliber markings on the barrel.

The tool-less, quick-detachable full free-floating handguard features M-Lok attach points allowing you to attach multiple accessories such as a bipod, bullet quivers, lasers, etc.

The Chassis is rounded on all edges for extra comfort while slung. The precisely machined mating surfaces form an exceptional bed for the action, optimizing accuracy. The magwell accepts AICS pattern magazines with a generous magazine drop latch easy for use, even with gloved hands. A reinforced handguard junction with stainless-steel pins adds rigidity to the forend.

The Siete is fitted with a modified LaRue Rat Stock on a folding 6-position M-4 profile machined stock extension. A robust release-button unlocks the stock, allowing it to be folded along the left side for easy packing. A set of 3 different height RISR 2.0 risers are included to get your eye aligned perfectly with the scope’s reticle. The riser can be securely positioned in three different slots in the stock. A LaRue A-PEG Grip aligns the shooter’s index finger in perfect alignment to the trigger shoe. The Timney Trigger breaks at a crisp 2.5 lbs.

The entire package comes in an attractive and compact high-impact polymer case that allows the broken-down rifle easy and discreet carry.
