New Ultra Light Arms Signature Series

More than 30 years ago, a lightweight rifle was nothing more than a rework of a factory rifle. Then a shop teacher from West Virginia began to tinker.

Melvin Forbes envisioned a bolt-action hunting rig weighing less than 6 pounds, including a scope and mounts. What he eventually took to market was the Ultimate Mountain Rifle. It delivered on the promise of four key elements: ultra light weight, perfect balance, extreme accuracy and absolute reliability.

In 2015, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his groundbreaking lightweight rifles, Melvin Forbes' New Ultra Light Arms announced its Signature Series, Melvin's famous Model 20, a short-action rifle, adorned with his signature. The action alone weighs a mere 20 ounces (thus the name). The complete rifle weighs only 4.75 pounds without a scope. It's available in short-action calibers from .17 Remington to .223 Remington in 2015 as the Signature Series. Melvin's signature adorns every single one he'll build this year.
