TOO LATE. SOLD. ARCHIVE SECTION.
SAUER Model 202 BOLT ACTION .308 RIFLE.
BRAND NEW, UNFIRED and still with Makers Warranty Card attached! This has been tucked away for a good few years. It is actually an older model of the 202, which superseded the 200. This has the original safety as found on the 200 model. They consist of vertical push button set inside the trigger guard which passes up to the tang. Some, myself included, actually prefer these older versions / models. (YES, I have one in my own cabinet). It seldom works out that ‘improvements’ find their way onto new versions because they are actually better. More likely because they are actually a bit cheaper to the unit costs!
This is the ‘LUX SUPREME’ version so supplied in a Very Pretty Higher Grade Walnut stock. A Rosewood tip to the grip cap as well as Schnabel forend just adds that extra touch. The grip area also has a palm swell to offer a very positive grip and hand position. Always a great feature to ensure your trigger finger is in the correct position. With good figuring it also features a very tight ‘Tiger Stripe’ pattern across most of the stock. In reality the rifle is actually prettier than the pictures. It is difficult to capture the highlights in the timber with the camera.
The interchangeable barrel system allows these rifles to open up opportunities to easily swap out calibres. They can cover just about any shooting scenario anywhere on the planet. That said the .308 IS the most versatile calibre available. Bullet head weights range from 70 through to 220gr ‘heavy hitters’. Unless it’s something from the ‘dangerous game’ categories this one rifle is sufficient for anything. In effect it is a ‘one rifle for life’. OK not the cheapest purchase but you will never need to think about buying another.
Detachable magazine as standard and metal work pre drilled to take a set of scope mounts. Open sights can also befitted if required. These are certainly HIGH END rifles. I have the same calibre and rifle in the 200 version, along with a couple of alternative barrels. They are all a delight to shoot. Anyone wanting something a little classier than the general ‘run of the mill’ this SHOULD appeal.
