i saw a bit of the biathlon today. what kind of action is being used on those rifles. it resembles a bolt action, but it looks as if it is straight-pull, something akin to the T-bolt. anybody know what they are? just curious...
thanks,

I thought it was a specifically designed Anchutz Model for Biatholon using a bolt action & repeater?

It's a Fortner straight pull action.
