PANAGYURISHTE, (BM) – Sig Sauer Inc. have announced their first “bolt-action” rifle, the CROSS, aimed at precision shooting and is currently available in three calibers, including the new 277 Fury (.277 SIG Fury) Hybrid cartridge for the civilian market.
Weapons with manual reloading with a longitudinally sliding bolt action and rotary locking deviate slightly from the “classic” layout, when the receiver (receiver) is mounted on top of the stock or chassis, resembling an “AR-carbine” re-equipped with a bolt action.
The new 277 Fury cartridge with a 6.5 mm bullet was developed under the military contract NGSW and uses a steel base under the brass “body” of the case, operating at an increased pressure comparable to the .308 Winchester.
“When our product teams and engineers explored the bolt-on rifle niche, they looked for something that was missing or not yet available in the market, where SIG could bring their innovative approach to the needs of hunters and target shooters. Hunting rifles are generally designed by design. With weight savings in mind, precision is a secondary consideration, while precision systems are focused on stability without weight limits” commented Tom Taylor, director of marketing and commercial executive vice president.
“The market lacked a true crossover (hybrid). Our teams took the best of the rifle classes and developed the CROSS precision hunting rifle. Out of the box, the gun has many basic features included in its low cost that will be appreciated by shooters from a variety of disciplines,” he also added.
The one-piece aluminum receiver does not require bedding and has an integrated “well” with extended, angled edges guiding the removable AI box magazines. The bolt bolt with three lugs opens with a 60 ° lift with a curved lever with an enlarged removable handle.
A long picatinny mounting rail for sighting systems is installed on top. The stainless steel barrel, secured by a special nut, is protected by a suspended ventilated aluminum “forend” with M-LOK mounting slots.
The two-stage descent of the match class is adjustable without removal from 1.13 to 1.81 kg. The double-sided manual safety catch is made in the form of a flag rotating selector “AR-platform”, as well as a removable pistol grip made of polymer with anti-slip texture, stop at the end, upper bend for the girth and sharpened straight sections for the movement of the index finger. Also from the AR-system, the folding down protective cover of the ejection window has passed.
The branded side-folding butt of a skeletonized / frame structure on a hinge with a button is adjustable with one hand both in length – with the butt plate, and in height – with a straight comb together with the butt plate. On the sides there are sockets for installing QD quick-detachable sling swivels.
The weapon is made in black anodizing color or camouflage pattern First Lite ARMAKOTE coating.
