One of our Title sponsors is Aero Precision. We have proudly represented AP since 2019 and recently they sent us their newest edition of the Solus line. This rifle is demoed in every Kids Firearm Safety 1 class that we teach. It gives us the ability to show families how the bolt action rifle functions and answer any questions that they might have. This gives us the ability to give them real-time information in a controlled and safe environment. You would be surprised how many young children learn about firearms from either YouTube or video games. It is here that we bring them back to reality with our gun safety for children program. We give the families good factual information which helps dispel any rumors and helps keep the kids safe.
It is important to note that we have (2) of the Aero Precision Solus rifles. We have the competition model, which we will do another review on, and the Bravo series. The difference between the two is the stock and the weight. The Bravo features a Kinetic Research Group (KRG) semi-adjustable polymer and aluminum stock. It does give you the ability to adjust the length of pull on the rear of the stock and adjust the cheek rest. This gives you the ability to adjust the rifle to fit you. This will help you manage the recoil better. I must say the Aero Precision Solus is a shooter. The first time I shot the rifle was at the AP facility in Lakewood Washington. They have an indoor 100-yard range that they use for demos. It was there that I shot a 5-shot group at 100 yards that measured .47”! It shot incredible and from that moment I was hooked.
The Bravos that we have are both chambered in 6.5 Creedmor. This is a newer caliber for us but so far I am impressed with the lack of recoil and the effective range. The Bravo features a Timney trigger and a 22” Sendero profile barrel built upon a Remington 700 action. The fit and finish of the rifle are good. The barrel is threaded so you can add a brake and a suppressor. We waiting on a Lahar 30K, that is in NFA jail. Once we are approved we will add this suppressor to our gun safety classes for children. The goal would be to normalize suppressors and how they are beneficial to newer and younger shooters. That will be for another review. The Solus rifles take a Magpul AICS-type detachable box magazine. With a price range that carries from $1850 to $2210 depending on the options and chassis style that you select. If you know anything about the precision rifle game, you know that a quality rifle can cost you thousands. Then you have to pick out mounts and an optic.
On our Solus rifles, we went with Warne Scope Mounts to attach the scope and Vortex Optics for the scopes. We have used Vortex products for years and love their products. They feature one of the best warranties in the industry. The Bravo does feature a 20 MOA integral scope base, so you will have to take that into account when purchasing rings and optics. It has been fun to watch the Aero Precision wade into the bolt action market and develop a product that will help expand its offerings outside of the semi-automatic market. The sky is truly the limit for Aero Precision and we are thankful for their continued support. You can find more information on their website.
