Features of the 505 include a robust, newly designed steel chassis, smooth bolt cycling and interchangeable, cold-hammer-forged precision barrels that allow for quick and easy caliber changes. Hunters can select between four pre-set trigger weights from 0.77 pounds to up to 2.75 pounds.

The ergonomically perfected manual cocking system is safe, lightweight, quiet and easy on the thumb. Once ready to shoot, apply slight pressure with your thumb to cock the rifle. Uncocking and unloading in the uncocked position is just as easy.

Sauer has adopted the proven Blaser saddle mount technology for easy and accurate optics mounting. This quick detach mount is designed to ensure the unit can be taken off the Sauer 505 and put back on while maintaining the precise point of aim without having to re-zero the scope. This is a significant advantage for those who travel frequently.

"The Sauer 505 represents the finest in German craftsmanship and engineering, and it’s precision, beauty, and timeless elegance ensures it will be cherished by generations to come," said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group. "This German rifle is a meticulously designed platform with the smoothest, 60-degree action available, and Sauer offers various stocks for specific purposes from lightweight carbon fiber options for mountain hunting to heavier stocks and barrels for dangerous game hunts in the African savanna."

Available in four stock options—walnut (from wood grades 2 to 10), synthetic, synthetic thumbhole or carbon fiber. The flush mounted detachable magazine features an integrated MagLock safety which prevents unwanted triggering of the magazine button. Weights range from approximately 6 pounds with the ultralight carbon-fiber stock to heavier weight field options with magnum barrels.

The Sauer 505 will be available in Summer 2024 in multiple calibers with MSRPs starting at $3,500. For more information, visit
