"Innovation in Carbon“ is the motto of Voere's new S16 bolt action rifle. It is based on the K15A rimfire rifle that could be seen at the Nuremberg fair as well. The S16 in chambered in .223 Rem and weighs in at just below 4.4 lbs / 2 kg. To improve handling in prone position, the magazine is mounted sideways in the receiver. Shooters will be delighted to hear that the S16 accepts any STANAG-compatible (AR-15 type) magazine

The most important innovation is the carbon fiber reinforced barrel responsible for the low weight of the completed rifle. It is available with an integrated suppressor.
