SAUER Introduces Ultralight S101 Highland XTC Carbon-Fiber Rifle

SAUER Introduces Ultralight S101 Highland XTC Carbon-Fiber Rifle

J. P. Sauer & Sohn is introducing the ultralight S101 Highland XTC carbon-fiber rifle.  The .308 Win. verion of this highly accurate bolt-action rifle weighs 5.4 lbs, which is ideal for strenuous hunts when every ounce counts.

The S101 features a hand-laid, carbon-fiber stock with advanced recoil absorbing properties.  The barrel is fluted and threaded for additional weight reduction and cold-hammer forged for guaranteed precision of less than one MOA at 100 yards.  The barrel and receiver also feature Sauer’s Diamond-Like-Carbon (DLC) surface for maximum corrosion protection.

“The DLC layer is 40 times thinner than a human hair while offering key advantages such as superior surface hardness and maximum rust protection and wear resistance,” said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group.  “Many advances were made in the production of the Highland XTC, and it now holds the record as Sauer’s lightest rifle ever.”

Additional features include a crisp match-grade trigger, fluted bolt and Sauer’s Dura Safe direct firing pin safety, which operates as an ergonomic slide on the bolt shroud for enhanced safety and optimum operation.  The Highland XTC consistently delivers precision and accuracy even under the most extreme climate conditions.


The Sauer S101 Highland XTC carbon-fiber rifle is available in all current calibers in the S101 series and, depending on the caliber, in barrel lengths from 20-inches to 22-inches.


MSRP: $3,000
