Straight pull firearms are a variant of the bolt-action. The weapon utilities a rear rocking motion which contracts the circular locking lug, unlocking the bolt.
The bolt handle doesn't rotate, it utilises a cam-actuated rotating bolt head and various locking lugs or pivoting wedges which unlock as the bolt is pulled backwards and locks again as the bolt is pushed forward, this means that you can enjoy faster firing rates.
At Allcocks, we've seen straight pull firearms gain in popularity, particularly straight pull rifles, over the past few years, and are absolutely perfect for those who partake in driven hunting. It's always handy to know that you've got a backup shot ready in the chamber should you need it.
