In a bold move a few years ago, SIG SAUER introduced the CROSS series, a game-changer for hunters and precision shooters seeking a rugged yet adaptable platform. This innovative bolt-action series allowed users to easily move and rapidly engage their targets with unparalleled ease. However, the CROSS platform was initially limited to intermediate cartridges.
SIG SAUER takes a leap forward with the introduction of the SIG SAUER CROSS Magnum series, a testament to years of research, development, and tireless testing. The introduction of magnum cartridges to the CROSS platform opens up new possibilities for enthusiasts seeking even greater performance.
The SIG CROSS Magnum, chambered in .300 Win Mag, stands as a testament to this commitment to excellence. It features a 24” barrel, an aluminum coyote anodized frame, and a two-stage match trigger. The core innovation lies in the new magnum action receiver, complete with a free-floating handguard.
One of the most exciting features is the full-length M-LOK™ and ARCA™ rail handguard, enabling shooters to customize their setup to perfection. The forward angle PRS style grip and right thumb rest safety enhance ergonomics, ensuring precise and comfortable shooting. Additionally, the folding adjustable precision stock adds to the rifle’s adaptability.
