Sauer's 101 Classic XT sets a new benchmark in bolt-action rifles. Its Dura Safe system is the only direct firing pin safety activated by an ergonomic lever handle placed in the bolt sleeve. The integral detent button prevents unintentional release of the safety. Safe opener allows opening the bolt with the safety still fully engaged. The Heat Lock procedure connects the barrel and sleeve completely without tension. The Ever Rest system combines stable bedding with maximum possible isolation of stock and barrel action, and massive locking lugs ensure phenomenal accuracy. The 101 captivates by the legendary silky smooth bolt and chamber action of Sauer rifles, with quiet loading and lightning-quick repetition. Its Ergo Max polymer stock features soft-touch coating and a soft rubber recoil pad for reduced felt recoil. It has an extra wide trigger with an extra crisp 2 lb. pull, and a 14.4" LOP. It accepts Remington 700 and 700 long action scope base mounts.
