Schultz & Larsen | Ambassador
Sure to please any aficionado of fine English rifles, the Ambassador flaunts sleek, almost feminine lines, whilst retaining the technical ‘know how’ that sets Schultz & Larsen rifles apart from the crowd when accuracy is mentioned. The slim English style stock retains the Classic straight top line but still incorporates a comfortable and elegant cheek piece. The grip has an open radius that may not be to everyone’s taste but will be instantly familiar to connoisseurs of fine English rifles. With standard profile barrel, the Ambassador weighs 3.6kg. Fluted barrels reduce this to between 3.4 kg and 3.5kg. Magnum calibres come in at 3.7 kg.
As standard, the Ambassador is equipped with the excellent Schultz & Larsen single stage trigger, adjustable for weight and length. The Schultz & Larsen designed and made double stage Match trigger is available as an option. On this trigger the first stage of the pull takes 60% of the total pull weight, leaving a final light and crisp second stage.
The Ambassador stock follows the traditional lines of bygone days with an open radius grip and a slim tapered forearm capped with rosewood. Available in six wood grades, all with a linseed oil finish to enhance the figure and beauty of the wood.
The Ambassador is available in Right or Left hand.
The stock terminates in a black “Olde English” pad by Pachmayr. The pad is held perfectly in line by the tenon incorporated in the butt. Underneath the pad the stock is pre-drilled ready for fitment of a Schultz & Larsen recoil reducing counterweight.
Recoil reducer weights are available in two different options. A short and a long option depending on your personal preference, both are available for the Ambassador. The pad is removed, then the weights are screwed into the stock.
Short: 50g / 50mm Length / ø 20mm
Long: 140g / 100mm Length / ø 20mm
Switch Barrel System
The Ambassador has a switch barrel system allowing the barrel to be changed for any other in its calibre group with just a simple wrench. The standard bolt can be used with all calibres in the standard calibre group but if changing to a Magnum calibre you will need to change the bolt.
The top surface of the Ambassador action, unlike the Classic or Victory, is not milled to directly accept the Schultz & Larsen made ‘Slide & Lock’ mounts.
Instead separate bases are available that attach by means of the drilled and tapped holes provided for this purpose. As an alternative option, a Schultz & Larsen made Picatinny rail is available, in either 0 or 20 MOA, that is attached using the same drilled and tapped holes. This rail allows the use of a wide range of both Weaver and Picatinny mounts and also facilitates the use of night vision scopes. Separate Weaver bases are also available to complete the mounting options.
Safety has top priority with all locking parts designed and tested to withstand at least three times normal load. In the case of an overload resulting in a primer blow-out or case rupture, the high pressure gas can escape through holes in the front of the action and on the side of the bolt. This, coupled with the extremely tight fit of the bolt and action, ensures that the shooter is not injured.
The safety catch is three position and locks the bolt and blocks the firing pin. The centre position allows unloading of the rifle whilst the safety is engaged.

Schultz & Larsen manufacture their own range of sound moderators, designed to complement their rifles. The range includes both muzzle mounted and over-barrel moderators, all designed to withstand repeated firing with heavy calibres. The popularity of the Schultz & Larsen moderators is such that a range of thread sizes are available to fit other rifle brands.
