U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- SIG SAUER is pleased to announce the first expansion of the CROSS rifle with the introduction of the CROSS-PRS that delivers match grade features fine-tuned for precision accuracy.
“This launch is an exciting series of firsts for SIG – this is the first expansion of our popular CROSS rifle and the first rifle we’ve built specifically for long range, precision rifle competition,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The CROSS-PRS is purpose built and feature rich. The heavy structured steel design delivers weight evenly for a balanced feel while reducing recoil to get you back on target faster. Combined with the extreme accuracy of the heavy contour 5R rifled barrel, and folding adjustable steel stock for easy movement, the CROSS-PRS delivers an extremely capable long-range shooting experience that scores big on the range, right out of the box.”
The SIG SAUER CROSS-PRS features a precision free-floating 24” stainless heavy contour 5R barrel fitted to a one-piece aluminum receiver, a steel frame fully adjustable folding stock, a two-piece free floating M-LOK handguard that comes equipped with a steel arca rail for quick and easy attachment of bipods in a Cerakote Elite Concrete finish. Additional features include a two-stage match-grade trigger that can be adjusted from 2.5 to 4.5lbs, forward angle PRS style grips, thumb rest selector, and an ambidextrous paddle magazine release. The CROSS-PRS is available in 6.5 Creedmoor and 308 Win, ships with (2) AICS pattern magazines and is optimized for use with the SIG SLH Suppressors and SIERRA6BDX Riflescopes.
