The Lynx CrossBolt straight-pull system

Lynx Rifles are praised by reviewers and


loved by hunters around the globe. But
what makes a Lynx Rifle so unique?
At the heart of our rifles is the patented
Lynx CrossBolt straight-pull bolt action.
It is smooth, fast, accurate and always
reliable.
Through innovative mechanical design and
engineering, the system has been simplified
to perfection. The locking action itself has
only seven parts and an entire Lynx Rifle
has less parts than found in the locking
action of competing straight-pull systems.

the trigger and the sear locks the firing pin


- true safety if the rifle is dropped.
In a recent review of our takedown rifle for
the Shooting Times & Country Magazine,
the reviewer Mr. Bruce Potts awarded the
rifle a score of 96/100, with a conclusion:
Its straight-pull design is one of the safest
and best in the business. Every part of the
Lynx is well made and accuracy is excellent.
We couldnt have said it better ourselves.

The key to the Lynx CrossBolt is its


cocking handle. It performs a total of five
different actions.
The cocking handle opens and closes the
locking piece, which crosses through the
bolt into the receiver on both sides. When
opening the bolt, the handle cocks the
firing pin and locks it back during
reloading.
In addition, the cocking handle provides
extra force to remove the case out from the
chamber.
In our 2015 rifle collection, we introduce
a new three-position safety. In the front position, the rifle can be fired. In the middle
position, unfired cartridges can be safely
extracted from the chamber and in the rear
position the cocking handle is locked.
The safety also disconnects the sear from

The Story of Lynx Rifles


Our history is more than facts and figures of
a company. It is a story of one mans lifelong
passion for hunting and gun technology, which
lead to the creation of the best rifle bolt action
on the market. It is the life story of our founder, master gunsmith Mr. Torsti Laaksonen.
Mr. Laaksonen was born 1934 into a family
living in the isolated Finnish countryside. At
the age of six, young Torsti began hunting and
through his prey provided great relief to his
family during the hard, cold years of scarcity
while World War II was raging. After the war,
at the age of 20, he entered his military service
and was admitted to the Finnish Military
School of Weapons, where he studied weapons
technology during 1954-55 and developed a
keen interest in weapons and gun technologies.
The professional career of Mr. Laaksonen began
at the Tampereen Asepaja Oy (Tampere Weapons Factory Ltd), where he began as a worker,
progressed to a gunsmith in 1964 and further
developed his knowledge under the guidance of
Mr. Niilo Lahtinen, the owner of the factory.
Following Mr. Lahtinens sudden passing away,
Mr. Torsti Laaksonen became a partner and
was appointed as Director of Technology of the
factory in 1968.
The first production rifle designed by Mr.
Laaksonen was the 1970 Caribu, which was a
.222 Rem caliber pump action rifle for running
target shooting. This was followed by his first
real straight-pull rifle, the .22 caliber WildBoar.
In 1975 the factory launched the world famous
Lakelander TAP-375, jointly designed by Mr.
Laaksonen and his partner Mr. Jali Timari,
which became a huge success with over 4000
pieces produced during 1975-79 before the
patent was sold to Kongsberg in Norway, where
the success story of the rifle continued. The
partners continued their co-operation and the

factorys second straight-pull rifle, the .22 caliber FinnBiathlon, was designed for the Finnish
Biathlon Team and launched in 1976. Due to
the selection of materials and the innovative
bolt action it was very light, fast to reload and
the trigger system was easily exchangeable as
it had only two screws. Over 3500 pieces were
produced during 1977-1984.
Even with all the success achieved at the Tampereen Asepaja Oy, Mr. Laaksonen had a dream
of creating a perfect hunting rifle. In 1979 he
decided to leave the factory and found his own
company Pirkan Ase Ltd.
Birth of the best rifle bolt action
Through his deep knowledge and understanding
of straight-pull bolt actions, Mr. Laaksonen saw
the benefits it offered. As he designed his third
straight-pull rifle, a .22 Lr caliber which was
patented and subsequently sold to Sweden, he
started thinking of ways to create a straight-pull
bolt action to shoot center-fire high pressure
cartridges something, which no one had been
able to produce.
Some years later, in 1989, he succeeded and
the first prototype of a Lynx straight-pull bolt
action for bigger calibers was introduced.
Extensive testing followed and the design
was improved further. Finally in 1994 the
Lynx94 straight pull bolt action was patented
and small scale production began. Through
extremely clever innovation and design, the
Lynx 94 straight-pull bolt action became a true
masterpiece of gun technology and mechanical
engineering. The mechanical construction was
streamlined to an unheard level the entire
bolt action has only six parts and is virtually
unbreakable. Our entire rifle has fewer parts
than any of the competitive bolt actions on the
market.

The Finnish wilderness is an extremely harsh


environment for hunting rifles. Through real
life hunting experiences, some further
enhancements were made to the design and in
2010 the company was awarded another patent
for the current Lynx CrossBolt system.
The Lynx CrossBolt straight-pull system is
recognized and praised for its smooth action,
extreme reliability and superior accuracy. It is
the heart and soul of a Lynx Rifle the realization of one mans dream for a perfect hunting
weapon.

School of Weapons just like his uncle did 37
years earlier. Under the guidance of The Master,
Mr. Harri Laaksonen continued to learn and
develop his knowledge of gun technology. In
the year 2000 he was appointed to the positions
of riflemaker and CEO of the company and
during his time further technical and product
innovations have been introduced.

selected network of distributors sharing our
passion for hunting and weapons technology.
They offer our end-users highest possible levels
