The Sabatti Saphire Syn is a bolt-action rifle brought to American shores by Italian Firearms Group. Chambered for .308 Win. and feeding from a steel, detachable box magazine, the Saphire boasts a switch-barrel design that accommodates many popular U.S. and European chamberings—in both long- and short-action families. The rifle’s 25” cold-hammer-forged steel barrel furnishes a set of drift-adjustable iron sights for backup or standard use, and the barrel’s receiver provides two sections of integrally machined Picatinny rail for mounting optics. Internally, the Saphire utilizes a three-lug bolt head to make way for quick shooting when follow-up shots are required. A synthetic stock features both a left-side swell for the cheek and a Monte Carlo rise to help better position the shooter.
