Sauer expands the S101 line of bolt-action hunting rifle with two new models: the Highland XTA, featuring a silent and comfortable black polymer Ergo Max stock, and the Elegance, with an eye-catching Grade IV walnut stock!
J.P. Sauer & Sohn – one of Germany's best known manufacturers of hunting and sporting firearms – announces the launch of two new entries in their already popular Sauer 101 line of bolt-action hunting rifles: the new Sauer 101 Elegance and Sauer 101 Highland XTA model offer all the reliability and quality that made the S101 line so successful with a set of distinctive features on their own.
The new Sauer 101 Elegance bolt-action rifle is dedicated to those most dedicated and demanding hunters who just can't do without a stylish touch: built on an English-style Grade IV walnut stock, optionally available with an adjustable cheek riser, the new Sauer 101 Elegance rifle features a precision cold-hammer forged, blued 56 cm / 22" or 62 cm / 24" barrel, a direct trigger set to a 950 grams (2.04 lbs) weight, a set of comfortable sling swivel studs, and a Jeweled finish on the bolt body.
Other features of the Sauer 101 Elegance rifle include an aluminium charging handle knob, a bright red recoil pad, and a drilled and tapped receiver for optics mounts or rails.
Weighing in at approximately 3 to 3,1 kilograms (107 to 111 oz.) depending on the caliber, the Sauer 101 Elegance rifle is optionally available with a M15x1 thread at the muzzle for sound suppressors.
Sporting a more modern and "down-to-Earth" looks with its black Ergo Max polymer stock, the Sauer 101 Highland XTA is dedicated to driven and mountain hunt: the Soft Touch finish, adjustable cheek riser, and 51 cm / 20" or 56 cm / 22" DLC coated, fully fluted black barrel make it lightweight, extremely manageable in all conditions, and silent in operation. A M15x1 thread at the muzzle for sound suppressors comes standard.
The Sauer 101 Elegance and Highland XTA also have many features in common with other entries in the S101 line, including the Dura Safe firing pin with super silent, direct sliding top tang safety; Sauer's patented Ever Rest bedding system; and Sauer's own, detachable magazines holding up to five rounds in standard calibers and four rounds in Magnum calibers.
Sauer's 101 Elegance and Highland XTA bolt-action rifles are available in nine popular standard hunting calibers – .243 Winchester, .270 Winchester, 6,5x55 SE, 7x64, .308 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield, 6,5 Creedmoor, 8x57 IS, and 9,3x62 – and in two Magnum calibers (.300 Winchester Magnum and 7mm Remington Magnum); the Sauer 101 Elegance is also available in a 8,5x55 Blaser variant.
