A Budget Sauer? (Sponsored Spotlight)
What? A budget Sauer rifle?
If you've been around bolt-action rifles for a while no doubt you bumped into the name Sauer. What you heard, or saw, or shot, was a high-quality German rifle with all the bells and whistles, and it reeks of precision. But ... traditionally, a fine Sauer hunting rifle was going to run you three grand or more, right?
In a "What the heck?" moment, Sauer announced the Model 100. Yes, it's a Sauer. Yes, it's made in Germany. Yes, it's accurate. Available with a beautiful wood stock or ERGO MAX polymer stock. Check out the features: Three-position safety, three-lug bolt head, 60-degree lift bolt, adjustable trigger (2.2 to 4.2 lbs), double-stack mag, 5+ 1 capacity in standard calibers, and it takes scope bases for the Remington 700.
But, the Sauer Model 100 starts at under $700. That's stunning for a precision German-made rifle.
We were impressed when we saw it being built in Germany, and we remain impressed with the quality. It's one that's worth checking out.
