Hello all,

My local gunshop is selling a new Sauer SSG 3000 in 308 and is going to let me try it out on the weekend before I purchase. Has anyone had any experience with this particular model. good or bad.

It has really nice features like fast interchangable barrles and a 22LR conversion kit. the stock feels great and is adjustable.
The price seems like a steal @ $2000.00
I'm leary of the interchangable barrels: due they zero when installed or due I have to fiddle with tools ect.
My local gunshop is great, but this rifle was brought in on special order and never picked up. {they don't know much about the rifle, just what the brochues and internet tell them. Plus the rifle did not come with an operators manual so they have ordered one. {should be in by the weekend}
any help would be greatly welcome.
Cheers

I've fired a few rounds through one. And on the range it was a bliss. The bolt was smoother than a babies butt, the trigger wasn't much worse, either. The laminated stock was excellent - at least then and there.

All in all, it was great. But, the rifles we had were delivered with a sodding Versa-pod that just didn't impress me.

In my opinion it's a fantastic, if not a tad expensive, rifle for happy days on the range. And quite possibly for police marksmen. But, with the laminated stock I wouldn't drag it out into the woods for any extended periods of time. The "new" synthetic stock should make this rifle near perfect.

I don't think you'll be disappointed :wink:
