Sabatti Urban Sniper: Long Range Accuracy and Performance in A Compact Package
Imported exclusively by the Italian Firearms Group (IFG), Sabatti’s new Urban Sniper is designed for competition, precision and serious long-range shooters who want long distance capabilities in a shorter-length rifle. Shorter, thanks to a 20-inch long barrel designed with Sabatti’s revolutionary Multi-Radial Rifling (MMR)—the next generation in precision rifling.
For the last 400 years, Sabatti has produced shotguns and rifles for the most discerning hunters and target shooters worldwide. Now, IFG brings the Sabatti Urban Sniper to the American market for the first time, offering the rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Win., using the highest-quality materials and latest shooting science.
Built with precise attention to detail, the Urban Sniper is designed around Sabatti’s proven, extremely stable two-lug bolt system, featuring a tactical handle with a removable knob. A match-grade trigger is standard. The 2o-inch, heavy-contour barrel is cold hammer forged, has a threaded muzzle (5/8x24 threads), and comes with a muzzle brake. The brake can be removed for a suppressor.
The Urban Sniper’s thumbhole stock is made of a tough, durable composite material for years of hard use in any conditions. Adjustable for length of pull and cheek height for a perfect fit, the stock is specifically designed for precision shooting, and accepts AICS patterned magazines.
For optics, the Urban Sniper is supplied with a one-piece Picatinny rail and also accepts standard, readily available Remington two-piece model 700 bases which can be easily mounted to the rifle’s receiver. The rifle also has a rail beneath the fore end for attaching a bi-pod and other accessories. The Urban Sniper is shipped in a hard case with one seven round magazine.
Inside the Urban Sniper’s barrel is one of the best-kept secrets in rifle building – Multi-Radial Rifling (MMR).
Instead of traditional lands and grooves, MRR employs two offset radiuses that impart the spin on the bullet. This process seals the bullet more perfectly to the bore, reducing stress on the projectile while producing less copper fouling, better accuracy, and increased muzzle velocity. The reduction in friction also produces longer barrel life and slower accuracy degradation over time.
Sabatti’s Urban Sniper is a moderately-priced, precision rifle for the growing long-range and precision shooter market.
