SIG CROSS BACKGROUND
The concept of this rifle platform, as we see it, is this: provide a lightweight and small precision rifle platform that is easily adjustable and modular making it suitable for both hunting and precision rifle work. I think the platform is awesome (I’m getting ahead of my review below) and am excited to see this be what we expect on future offerings by others as well.SIG Sauer CROSS Riffle for Sale .
However, this style of rifle avoids the extra parts, weight, and potential for inconsistent mating of the two-part chassis and receiver system and instead makes the receiver into the chassis. This saves weight, cost, and removes the potential for inconsistencies.
However, much of the potential chassis features remain folding stocks with adjustable combs (cheek rests) and length of pull, AR-style components such as grips, safeties, and handguards, plenty of rail space for mounting optics, and detachable magazines.
These new platforms also introduce another AR-style feature: interchangeable barrels with barrel extensions and interchangeable bolt-heads. What does this mean? Easy barrel changes by the user without headspace issues! The barrel and bolt head can come from the factory ready to go.
