The SIG Sauer CROSS is a light-weight bolt-action rifle manufactured by SIG Sauer's North American branch headquartered in Newington, New Hampshire in the United States,[2] as a "precision hunting rifle" designed to "meet the demands of both precision long-range shooting and extreme back country hunting", available in three different calibers.[3] Announced in December 2019, it is the company's first bolt-action offering since the SSG 3000 was introduced in 1992.[4]

The Cross is available on the civilian market in America from Sig Sauer.

Specifications[edit]

The rifle is available in three chamberings: .308 Winchester, 6.5mm Creedmoor, or .277 FURY.[a] Barrel length is either 16-inch (410 mm) for .308 Winchester and .277 FURY chamberings, or 18-inch (460 mm) for the 6.5mm Creedmoor chambering,[3] both of which have a 1:8 barrel twist. Weight is either 6.5 pounds (2.9 kg) or 6.8 pounds (3.1 kg), respectively.[3] The rifle is available in black or camouflage ("First Lite Cipher") finishes.[3] Trigger-pull is adjustable from 2.5 lbf (11 N) to 4.5 lbf (20 N).[5][6][7] and both have similarities with the Ritter & Stark SX-1 MTR,[8] which was introduced in 2016.[9] It features a M-LOK attachment system. The folding stock features an adjustable cheek rest and shoulder pad.
