Maybe you’re someone who wants a precision rifle, but maybe you have a bit of old school in you, too, and you also want a bolt action rifle.
If that’s the case, then you may be in luck because Sig Sauer has announced a new bolt action precision rifle which is available in .308 WIN and in 6.5 Creedmoor. It is also available in 277 SIG Fury Hybrid cartridges. Duncan Johnson writes,
The SIG CROSS rifle is the first-ever true crossover bolt-action precision hunting rifle, engineered to meet the demands of today’s hunter. The SIG CROSS was designed and built, from concept to completion, at the SIG SAUER research and development facilities in New Hampshire with the input of the industry’s premier competitive shooters, some of the world’s best long-range shooters, and a team of professional hunters that the CROSS is built for.
The SIG SAUER CROSS features a precision free-floating stainless-steel barrel fitted to a one-piece aluminum receiver, with no need for bedding or action screws, to deliver extreme accuracy; an aluminum M-LOK™ handguard for quick and easy attachment of bipods, rails, night-vision or thermal clip-on optics; familiar AR-15 styled controls for a seamless transition to the CROSS platform; a unique two-stage match-grade trigger that can be adjusted from 2 to 4.5lbs, and AICS pattern magazines for the ultimate compatibility across calibers, platforms, cartridges, and loads.
The unique folding and locking precision stock of the CROSS offers toolless adjustment that can be modified for any shooting position while in the field. With folded stock the CROSS measures as short as 25” making it the ideal hunting rifle to fit in any backcountry backpack.
Now, as you can see in the picture above, just because this is a bolt action rifle, though, don’t think that that this is going to look like something out of the old west or a Davy Crockett story. No, this is a modern weapon.
But if you’re looking for a precision rifle that is a little different, this may be worth considering.
