#SundayGunday: Sabatti SAPHIRE

by
posted on January 6, 2019

While you don’t often hear of great Italian rifles, Sabatti is well on their way to changing that. The SAPHIRE offers precise workmanship, smooth function, great balance and handling characteristics, interchangeable free-floating barrels and impressive accuracy in a classically styled hunting rifle that sports just enough Italian flare. The heart of the SAPHIRE is its 24-inch, cold-hammer-forged barrel with multi-radial rifling. Instead of cutting or broaching rifling grooves with vertical walls and sharp 90-degree angles, Sabatti hammers its barrels around a mandrel featuring gently rounded groove and land edges, resulting in less barrel wear, easier cleaning, higher bullet speed and enhanced accuracy. Removing and replacing the barrel is quick and simple, and the SAPHIRE is currently offered in 12 chamberings from .243 Win. to .300 Win. Mag. Learn more about it in this exclusive video, hosted by Digital Associate Editor Rose Bier. MSRP: $1,230; italianfirearmsgroup.com.
