First Look: SIG Sauer Cross Precision Hunting Bolt-Action Rifle

Light and packable, the Cross comes in .308, 6.5 Creedmoor, and SIG’s .277 Fury

SIG Sauer unveiled a bolt gun (with AR ergonomics) at SHOT Show 2020 called the Cross. There is a lot to unpack with this new rifle, which has three interchangeable barrels: a 16-inch in .308, 18-inch in 6.5 Creedmoor, and 16-inch in SIG’s .277 Fury. The Cross has a one-piece receiver, and the stock is unique in that in folds forward at the press of a button, making it less cumbersome to pack in and out of wherever you chase wild game. The stock is also adjustable with a spring-loaded comb for better fit. You will notice the magazine release is somewhat hidden in the trigger guard so you don’t have to worry about it getting hung up on your pack or even losing a magazine. It weighs just 6.5 pounds, so it’s a great option for the backcountry.
