I had the opportunity to test the Italian precision rifle Victrix Gladio X, and I’m here to share my impressions with you.
Victrix produces a series of rifles that stand out for their attention to detail and overall craftsmanship. The manufacturer takes pride in producing each small part of the firearm in-house, without outsourcing, making their products truly unique.
Regarding the Gladio model, which I had the chance to try at one of ABA’s facilities in Brazil, Victrix classifies it as a “professional-use” rifle and offers it in three different versions: Gladio V, Gladio T, and Gladio X, with the latter being the one we used.
The Gladio is available in calibers 6.5 x 47 Lapua (1/8), 6.5 Creedmoor (1/8), and .308 Winchester (1/11), with the .308 Winchester being the one used in our test.
The fully assembled rifle weighs 6kg (excluding the scope and ammunition), with a total length of up to 45.39″, and a barrel length of 24″.
The shooting range where we tested the firearm had a distance limit of 200m, which unfortunately didn’t allow us to fully experience the equipment’s potential. However, within these distances and using CBC Sniper ammunition, it was effortless to zero the scope and start shooting sub-MOA groups.
The stock features horizontal, vertical, and cheek adjustments, and the original magazine holds 10 rounds. The original trigger weighs 24.70oz and is easily adjustable for different configurations.
