Rifle Hunting

Saphire Synthetic Wood

SLX600 Goose Camo See More

The SAPHIRE, Sabatti All Purpose Hunting Italian Rifle, shows a totally different action compared with the oldest Rover rifle. The new receiver is machined from a solid bar of high resistance Ergal 55 aluminum alloy, a notoriously rigid, but light alloy. It comes with an integrated Picatinny rail for fast fitting of scope rings. The design is completely modern and cutting edge, yet very refined.  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 a more accurate manufacturing of the parts, the use of different kinds 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. Barrels are easily interchangeable by using a Torx wrench and an Allen wrench.

Saphire ER

The SAPHIRE ER has been designed for all those hunters who do not want to carry heavy and “complicated” target rifles, but still enjoy an extended range of hunting. The action is machined from a solid block of Ergal 55 aluminum alloy and features 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 a more accurate manufacturing of the parts, the use of different kinds 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 tactical bolt head design makes operation faster and easier. The barrel muzzle diameter is bigger than on standard hunting rifles (17 mm). The barrel in AISI 4140 steel (42CrMo4) are all coldhammer forged and their Multi-radial Rifling (MMR) improves accuracy and guarantees longer barrel life, easy cleaning and higher bullets speed. The threaded muzzle is “brake ready”. Barrels are interchangeable just by means of a simple wrench for M6 screws and a Torx wrench for the stock. You can switch from one caliber to another in the same group by replacing the barrel; if the calibers are not in the same group, magazine and bolt head shall also be replaced. The barrel extension made of NiCrMo steel is hardened and tempered by a special process to improve hardness on the surface and tenacity in the heart. The same happens to the bolt head which is the most important part of the gun as safety entirely relies on it. The innovative pistol grip design of the stock guarantees a perfect hold under any shooting condition. As a matter of fact, although it was conceived for precision target shooting, it has proven to be extremely versatile and very effective for moving target acquisition. The forearm is small, as is typical for hunting. However, the flat bottom makes it very versatile and adaptable to all hunting and shooting conditions.  Two simple screws make the cheek piece adjust up and down. The LOP can also be adjusted through spacers that come standard with the rifle. The stock in high resistance polymer charged with fiber glass is ultra-light, yet very strong. It reduces vibration to the benefit of precision. A substantial rubber recoil pad also helps reduce perceived recoil even with magnum calibers. This model comes standard with a 3-lever Match trigger or a Set Trigger on request.

Saphire Tactical Carbon

SLX600 Goose Camo See More

The Sabatti SAPHIRE TACTICAL CARBON is a light weight bolt action rifle designed for long distance hunting and shooting. Although light weight is often the enemy of precision in rifle manufacturing, we have been able to lighten every single component of this rifle, yet keeping its overall rigidity intact. We have intentionally started from our Saphire action which is machined from a block of Ergal 55, a notoriously rigid, but light alloy. The design is completely modern, yet very refined.The Multi-Radial (MRR) barrels are cold hammer forged first to a muzzle diameter of 16mm, which reduces weight, and are subsequently wrapped in carbon and Kevlar to reach a diameter of 28mm. The aluminum muzzle brake is threaded on with a 5/8”-24 thread. It has taken the Sabatti team of engineers well over two years to determine how to best combine carbon and steel: these two materials distend completely differently under the effect of temperatures thus making it very difficult to keep shooting accuracy as temperature in the barrels goes up. The stock employs a lighter fiber glass charged polymer than the other tactical models, but it is as robust and vibration absorbent. The cheek piece is adjustable for both height and windage. The substantial rubber pad helps reducing perceived recoil even with magnum calibers.The Saphire Tactical Carbon comes standard with either a Set Trigger (Stecher), to be engaged before shooting, or a 3-lever Match.The overall weight is only 4.1 Kg which makes the rifle easy to carry in all hunting situations, but also more stable and accurate for precision shooting than any other rifle on the market today.
