The speed of a semi-auto, the accuracy of a bolt action and the reliability of a pump. These features best describe the new Acera rifle. The straight pull action requires only two quick movements to cycle the action, unlike the four needed to cycle a conventional bolt. One simple pull ejects the spent case and merely another forward push sends a new round to the chamber. European shooters have long appreciated a straight pull action because it is trouble-free and fast. The sleek contours of the one-piece stock bring it quickly to the shoulder and make it natural to aim and fire. You keep your eye on the target. There is no need to lift your cheek from the stock or disrupt your sight picture in any way.
