Sauer announced the launch of .222 Remington and .223 Remington caliber conversion kts for the Sauer 404 modular bolt-action rifle
At the heart of the system is the Sauer universal key system, or SUS – essentially a 5mm hex key integrated in the front sling swivel stud and stowed away in the handguard. The SUS key allows the Sauer 404 to be completely broken down in its key components in seconds, and allows the stock and forend to be replaced without hassle and the proprietary Sauer "Quattro" trigger to be adjusted on four different weight levels.
The SUS key allows the easy removal of the Sauer 404 barrel and the conversion of the rifle to any of the sixteen compatible calibers: nine standard chamberings (.243 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5x55mm, .270 Winchester, 7x64mm, .308 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield, 8x57 IS, 9.3x62mm) and seven Magnum options (7mm Remington Magnum, .300 Winchester Magnum, 8x68mm S, .338 Winchester Magnum .375 H&H Magnum, .404 Jeffery, 10.3x60R) covering the full spectrum of mid-to-big game hunting worldwide.
Now Sauer announced the introduction of new conversion kits for the popular .222 and .223 Remington calibers.
The .222 Remington and .223 Remington are popular in many countries and many hunting applications, and these two new conversion kits will also allow hunters to train using commonly available, low-cost ammunition.
The new caliber conversion kits will begin distributing on September 1st, 2019.
For further details about availability and pricing in your country, consult your local Blaser/Sauer/Mauser dealer or gun shop.
Caliber conversion kits for the Sauer 404 include a barrel, a magazine, and a bolt head – right-handed or left-handed.
The SUS key and the modular design of the rifle provide the Sauer 404 with that extra kick that a rifle needs to dominate the modern, crowded hunting firearms market.
Hunters will only need to purchase a conversion kit and dedicate only a few minutes of easy work to convert their Sauer 404 rifle to any caliber, making it ready for any kind of hunting trip, using the same firearm and optic.
