For more than 200 years, J.P. Sauer & Sohn has manufactured premium-tier rifles and shotguns—at premium tier prices. Fortunately the German manufacturer saw fit to provide the American market with a high-quality, bolt-action rifle that will maintain its heritage over time at a price U.S. consumers can appreciate. The Sauer 100 Classic XT, imported through Sauer USA, sells for less than $700, features a cold-hammer-forged barrel and comes with a sub-M.O.A. accuracy guarantee.
