IWA 2022 – the new Sabatti Urban Sniper is a versatile, ergonomically-friendly bolt-action rifle, be it for precision shooting in both sport and tactical applications – available in three calibers and with Sabatti own, super accurate MRR barrels
Showcased by Sabatti at the 2022 edition of IWA in Nuremberg, Germany, the Sabatti Urban Sniper bolt-action rifle represents one of the Company's latest cutting-edge, tip-of-the-spear products in terms of long-range, high-accuracy rifles for both sport shooting and tactical applications, particularly for law enforcement agencies.
Built around a black fiberglass-reinforced Nylon stock, the Sabatti Urban Sniper is ergonomically balanced to be easily transported and brandished either in urban tactical applications or at the range: the thumbhole-style stock features an adjustable cheek riser and a set of spacers allowing shooters to adjust the length of pull.
A set of both standard sling swivels and QD sling cups is provided; both the grip and the handguard are finely checkered and in relief for a comfortable, slip-proof handling, and a small MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail segment for bipods is located underneath the handguard itself. Another Picatinny rail is integrated on the machined steel receiver, providing a 0-10-20 MOA attachment platform for optical sights.
The 60°-throw bolt of the Sabatti Urban Sniper rifle is machined out of chrome steel, is fluted to speed up and prevent dirt and debris from hindering operation, and features an interchangeable bolt knob and Sabatti's rock-solid three locking lugs.
The Sabatti Urban Sniper is available in three calibers – .308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, and 6.5x47 Lapua – and is built with a 20" (51 cm) cold-hammer forged, fluted steel barrel. Other features include a screw-on muzzle brake on a threaded muzzle for all three calibers, and Sabatti's own, ultra-clean and ultra-accurate MRR multi-radial rifling pattern, with a 1:8" twist rate for both 6.5mm calibers and a 1:11.5" twist rate for .308 Winchester.
Standing in at 39.4" (100 cm) in overall length and 10 lbs (4,6 kg) in overall weight, the Sabatti Urban Sniper also features a Match trigger with a comfortable 2.4 lbs (1,1 kg) pull weight, and feeds from 7-rounds detachable Accuracy International Chassis System (AICS) compatible magazines in all calibers. The Urban Sniper bolt-action rifle is already available through authorized Sabatti distributors.
