Weighing in at just 2.8 kg with a barrel length of 53.5cm and a magazine capacity of 4 + 1, the Legacy will be the favoured choice for an evening walk round.
Barrels are screw cut for a sound moderator with a 1/2x20 UNF thread. The top of the action accepts the strong and lightweight Schultz & Larsen all steel scope mounts, available in a range of diameters and heights. The action is drilled and tapped for those who wish to use an alternative mount (hole spacing is 22mm and action radius 15mm).
Just like other rifles in the Schultz & Larsen family, the Legacy has a switch barrel system allowing the barrel to be changed for any other in its calibre group with just a simple wrench. The same bolt is used with all Legacy calibres. The surprisingly low cost of a barrel makes it viable to own a Legacy in all three calibres.
Safety has top priority with all locking parts designed and tested to withstand at least three times normal load. In the case of an overload resulting in a primer blow-out or case rupture, the high pressure gas can escape through holes in the front of the action and on the side of the bolt. This, coupled with the extremely tight fit of the bolt and action, ensures that the shooter is not injured.
The safety catch is three position and locks the bolt and blocks the firing pin. The centre position allows unloading of the rifle whilst the safety is engaged.
