The Western Hunting Expo, which took place Feb 10-13 in Salt Lake City, was the best consumer (open to the public and you could buy stuff) hunting show I’ve ever attended. If you ever get the chance to go, it’s a fun, fun show.
Hidden on a back row at the convention, out of sight, SIG SAUER had a small booth with many of their newest products, including the new 10K Rangefinding Bino’s, that have been announced but that still haven’t hit shelves.
Also hanging in their booth was a SIG Cross Precision rifle that hasn’t yet been announced. Here’s the exclusive first look.
The following features are in addition to the features found on the original SIG Cross:
The folding toolless buttstock is all steel for added weight and includes a bag rider.
The pistol grip is vertical and includes a steel weight inside it.
The mag release is different than on the hunting version of the Cross and is set up more for competition/precision.
The handguard is longer (18 inches) and features a full-length steel Arca rail on the bottom for attaching bipods and tripods.
The barrel is stainless steel, 24 inches long, and comes with a tank-style muzzle brake.
The hunting version of the SIG Cross is just over 6 lbs. The New Precision Cross is 15 lbs and there are plenty of M-Lok slots for adding more weight or accessories.
The first calibers available will be 6.5 Creedmoor, 308, and 6mm Creedmoor.
Anyone should be able to pull this gun out of the box, mount a scope, and go shoot a tactical/sniper or PRS match and be competitive without doing any modifications to the gun.
MSRP is $2500
There’s no other information available and it’s not listed on SIG’s website yet but you can check out the hunting version of the SIG Cross HERE.
