What really stands out about the S 404 is its patented safety concept, the heart of which is a completely new manual cocking system. The ergonomically perfect metal cocking slide on the bolt shroud allows the rifle to be cocked and de-cocked both comfortably and silently.
In addition to the manual cocking feature, an automatic firing pin safety works inside the S 404 to prevent it from firing when the bolt is not fully closed. In order to open the bolt with the gun on safe – e.g. to load and unload – it is only necessary to push the cocking slide forward while at the same time lifting the bolt handle. This way, safe handling becomes instinct aided by intelligent technology.
EASY REMOVAL OF THE BOLT HEAD
The bolt head can be separated from the bolt body in just two simple steps. Removal of the bolt head is a 100% guarantee that no unauthorized individuals can fire the S 404.
SAUER QUATTRO TRIGGER
No two hunts are alike, and every human has a different level of tactile perception. The revolutionary SAUER Quattro trigger concept has a unique way of using this fact to its advantage. With the help of the integral SUS universal key, the shooter can now choose between four different trigger pull weights in seconds: 550 g (1.2 lbs) // 750 g (1.7 lbs) // 1000 g (2.2 lbs) // 1250 g (2.7 lbs). Regardless which setting the hunter chooses, the SAUER Quattro is sure to delight with a trigger characteristic that gives new meaning to the term ‘bone dry’.
A clean pull and a controlled hit are determined by the position of the shooting finger on the face of the trigger, but every hand is different – and the SAUER Quattro now has the solution. With an 8 mm (0.3 in) adjustment range for length of pull and a left-to-right swivel range of 5 degrees, it guarantees each shooter optimal contact with this important operator interface.
