cdx-mc kraken® - MULTI-CALIBER SYSTEM

The CDX-MC KRAKEN® is a multi-caliber rifle using an innovative patented barrel change system. This multi-caliber system features the lowest shift of point of impact between takedown and reassembly of the same barrel on the market. Cadex CDX-MC uses a traditional barrel-to-action threading system while incorporating a special tool designed to unscrew and torque its barrel from the breech side. A single screw secures the chassis detachable base for fast conversion between short and long action calibers. Maintaining the same P.O.I. is critical at extreme ranges and the Kraken® surpasses any other multi-caliber system on the market.
