    This is the RFR - RimFire Rifle. Available in .17 and .22 mag, MSRP of $699.

    I'm embarrassed to say I've never seen an action like this before:

    The AUG gets an upgrade in the extended rail:

    And the M9-A1 is now available in Green:

    Looks like a toggle action, just turned on it's side (think Luger). The Winchester model 73 is a toggle action also. Pretty sure you have seen both of those at one time or another, LOL.

    The .22 looks like the Fortner action used by Anschutz and Baikal on Biathalon rifles.

    I'm sorry, but this is not a Fortner action - it's a simple toggle action, similar to the Izhmash (Baikal) Biathlon 7-2, or the single shot Hammerli 120 pistol. It's a cheap, budget solution. Fortner is a real straight pull action, much more sophisticated (and expensive). Anschutz version of it looks like this:

    Oh, wow, ball locking. I had not seen one taken out and thought they were all toggles. Thanks for straightening me out.
