Those who believe in traditional gun making values, for sure looks for a classic reliable rifle. We explore the SAUER 404 Classic rifle, which is a perfect entry rifle bearing a legendary name for when it comes to rifles.
It boasts an ERGO LUX stock with grade two walnut and an aviation-grade high-alloy aluminium receiver, thus being strong but still light for fast practical manoeuvres. Strong 6-lug bolt locks directly into the barrel and having twin case ejectors for a precise synchronised perpendicular ejection.
The S404 Classic benefits also from the SAUER Quattro trigger benefit, with a choice of four trigger pull weights; varying from 550g, 750g, 1000g and 1250g. The trigger benefits also adjustment to the length-of-pull and a left-to-right swivel range variation of 5 degrees by means of a torx key.
