Take a closer look at the next major breakthrough in modern tactical rifle design.

The STAR represents the standard tactical configuration for an ALIAS® rifle. With a barrel that can be ordered from 18.5″-24″, the STAR is optimized for most common tactical applications.


Designed with extensive input from elite military teams.

The adjustable buttstock will fit any operator, regardless of height, build, bulk of clothing, or shooting position. A tactile safety button can be operated without moving your trigger finger. Index marks allow repeatable stock adjustments and an Anschütz® match trigger adjusts for weight and length of pull. Accessory rails are available for night vision accessories. The barrel is threaded for an optional suppressor and is supplied with a thread cap.


Accuracy of a national champion.

Accuracy is a term with many meanings. For a tactical professional, it means delivering sub-MOA performance, first shot uniformity, repeatability in all weather conditions, and repeatability after breakdown and reassembly.  With a heritage as one of the top performing rifles on the international high power rifle circuit, the ALIAS STAR easily exceeds the toughest criteria of any demanding tactical professional.


ALIAS customization.

Like all ALIAS rifles, the STAR can be reconfigured with interchangeable ALIAS components so you can customize it for any application.


Call for more information.

It’s called the Standard Tactical Application Rifle, but there is nothing standard about it. The STAR represents the next generation in tactical rifles.  Pick up an ALIAS STAR in your hands and you’ll never think of a bolt action rifle the same anymore.
Applicable NFA rules apply regarding SBR and suppressor.
