There are three versions of this rifle listed on the company’s website: OVIS Tactical, OVIS Tactical Black, and OVIS Hunter. Presumably, they are built on the same action. All three versions are chambered in .308 Winchester and feature 6-lug bolts. Let’s take a quick look at each of the three versions.

The Ovis Tactical version of the rifle features a walnut stock that has an adjustable length of pull and cheek rest height. The rifle also has a set of Picatinny rails on the receiver rings and an NV rail section on the front portion of the forearm. The barrel length of this rifle is 28″. It weighs 15 lbs 7oz (7 kg). The rifle is fed from detachable box magazines of 3 round capacity.

The Tactical Black version of the rifle is built on a metal (should be aluminum) chassis. Compared to the OVIS Tactical, this rifle has a 5 round magazine and it is heavier by about a pound. The rifle has a skeletonized grip and a collapsible wire stock. The latter is a rather unusual feature that doesn’t seem to be a rigid enough solution for a precision rifle. The rifle also has an adjustable cheek rest, buttpad and monopod. The triggers of all OVIS rifles are also adjustable.

The third version of these Turkish rifles is designed for hunters. It features a walnut stock of a classic hunting appearance. The absence of a muzzle device and the relatively shorter barrel (24″) make it much lighter than the previous two rifles. This rifle weighs 8 lbs 13 oz (4 kg).

Starting during the 1st World War, Huglu's story crossed the oceans and made it a real brand. This brand is recognized across the world with its craftsmanship currently being used by hundreds of thousands of people with reliability and loyalty. Craftsmanship is not a simple concept of skill; more than 100 years of knowledge, skill, growth, and experience underlie this term.
