The SABATTI Saphire Varmint Carbon is one of our hunting bolt action riﬂes designed for long distance precision shooting, and yet still easy to carry.
These bolt action rifles are ideal for all types of hunting: from the Alps to the Rockies where accuracy and light weight are of the utmost importance.
Riﬂes manufacturers know that light weight is the enemy of precision.
Here in Sabatti, we have decided to change that by employing the most advanced technology and the best materials available to lighten every single component of the rifle and yet keeping the overall rigidity of our riﬂes.
The action, ﬁrst and foremost, is machined from a block of Ergal 55 which is notoriously rigid, but light. The design is state of the art yet modern and reﬁned.
The Multiradial (MRR) barrels are cold hammer forged ﬁrst to a muzzle diameter of 16 mm, which reduces weight, and subsequently wrapped in carbon and Kevlar to reach a trunk-conical shape with a diameter of 28mm at the breech and 22 mm at the muzzle.
The aluminium muzzle break, of these long distance rifles, is threaded on with a 5/8”-24 thread.
It has taken Sabatti engineers well over 2 years to determine how to best combine carbon and steel: these two materials distend completely differently under the effect of temperatures thus making it very difﬁcult to keep shooting accuracy as temperature in the barrels goes up.
But the challenge did not stop us from developing a special technique and we achieved the accuracy we were looking for.
The stock features a very innovative design. The pistol grip guarantees a very steady hold under any shooting condition.
The small forearm is a perfect grip for hunting, but its ﬂat bottom makes it also ideal for almost all precision shooting conditions. The height of the cheek piece can be adjusted by means of two screws.
The LOP is adjustable through a system of spacers available with the gun. The “empty” stock in ﬁberglass-charged polymer is light, but robust and vibration absorbent. The substantial rubber butt pad reduces perceived recoil even with magnum calibres. The Saphire Varmint Carbon comes standard with a Set trigger (Stecher). On request a 3-lever Match or a new Double Step Match Trigger (DSMT) are also available.
The overall weight is only 3.5 Kg which makes these riﬂes very easy to carry in all hunting situations, but also stable and accurate to shoot. This is a quality that one does not often come across in a hunting bolt action riﬂe.
