The Sabatti SAPHIRE (Sabatti All Purpose Hunting Italian Rifle) - a cutting edge hunting rifle that shows a totally different action to the previous Rover rifle.This elegant and modern action represents the best of the 'Made in Italy' when it comes to beauty and precision.The action machined from a solid block of Ergal 55 aluminum alloy features two integrated Picatinny rails for fast fitting and regulation of sighting devices.The bolt with 3 front lugs is no longer a monolithic piece but is made in three parts: the head, the body and the handle. This allows for more accurate manufacturing of the parts, the use of a different kind of steel and heat treatments based on the mechanical features required.The bolt moves very smoothly after assembly and its floating head guarantees perfect contact on all 3 lugs thus enhancing precision. The barrels in AISI 4140 steel (42CrMo4) are all cold-hammer forged and their Multiradial Rifling (MMR) improves accuracy and guarantees longer barrel life, easy cleaning and higher bullets speed.Two short MIL-STD1913 Picatinny rails are machined on top of the receiver on the Sabatti SAPHIRE rifle, to facilitate zeroing and to make the action even more rigid. The Sabatti SAPHIRE also comes issued with a quick-alignment rear sight that is adjustable for windage anda front post sight adjustable for elevation. The SAPHIRE was the first bolt-action hunting rifle to come with Sabatti's own, proprietary Multi-Radial Rifling (MRR) pattern, a Sabatti exclusive that earned the Company international praise due to its high accuracy, low bullet deformation factor, and ease of cleaning.The rifle can be easily converted to any of the available calibers by changing the barrel - spare barrels are available separately.The barrel is threaded with a 1/2" UNF thread.
Available in the following calibres:-
6.5 x 55 SE
