Stuart Otteson

Stuart Otteson combined both his profession (mechanical engineering) and his avocation (marksmanship) in producing his writings about Bolt Actions.

An engineer with the U.S. Department of the Navy (retired) in his spare time Stuart engaged in Bench-rest competition and groundhog hunting.

Stuart also served as a technical editor for Rifle Magazine from 1983 to 1993 and design consultant for Remington Arms (1988-1993).

Now long retired from his day job; designing submarines and even longer from the avocations of gun writing and firearms consultant, Stuart lives in Southern Maryland enjoying his retirement.

Stuart spent six years compiling and illustrating volume one of “The Bolt Action” originally published in 1975.

His second book, “The Bolt Action” Volume II arrived in 1984. We will soon have this title back in print as well.
