SAFETY

MANUAL COCKING SYSTEM

 

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.

SECURITY

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.

CONTROL

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’.

TRIGGER

ADJUSTABLE TRIGGER
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.

UNIVERSAL MOUNT

SAUER UNIVERSAL MOUNT
The perfect union of gun, ammunition and optics converts the enormous potential of the SAUER 404 into consistent accuracy. The newly conceived and patented SUM (SAUER Universal Mount) is the decisive link between gun and scope. The mount base is milled into the housing of the S 404, thereby assuring the highest level of strength with the smallest possible tolerances and a sensationally low build height.

PRECISION

TRADITION OF PRECISION
A tradition of precision: Like the S 202, the cold hammer forged SAUER barrel attaches to the receiver by means of three clamping bolts. Thanks to this style of barrel clamping borrowed from the S 202, the S 404 maintains its point of impact after reinsertion of the barrel.

PERFORMANCE

SIX-PACK OF STEEL
Six massive bolt lugs lock the bolt of the S 404 directly into the barrel; its spring-loaded extractor removes every fired case from the chamber with authority; then its twin ejectors assure that cases are ejected safely and are controlled at all times.

STOCK

PERFECTLY FORMED FUNCTIONALITY
The ErgoLux walnut stock comb slopes upwards to the rear to significantly reduce felt recoil. The newly redesigned SAUER cheek piece gives the shooter more positive contact with the rifle, and the well-defined palm swell on the pistol grip fills the shooting hand optimally.

UNIVERSAL KEY

KEY NOTE
The SAUER SUS universal key appears at first glance to be no more than a detachable forend sling swivel. Upon removal it is revealed to be a super stable German-made folding hex key that is essentially responsible for the modularity and flexibility of the S 404. Finally a modular rifle with its own onboard tool. This is what the latest in user-friendly looks like!

CALIBERS

ONE GUN, MULTIPLE CALIBERS
The SAUER 404 allows the hunter to shoot all available calibers from a single rifle. Even the jump from Standard to Magnum is no problem: Simply swap out the bolt head to transform the S 404 from a .30-06 for local hunting to an uncompromising buffalo stopper in .375 H&H Magnum in two simple steps.

FLEXIBILITY

BACKPACK-SIZED IN A TRICE
Whether you need to reach the hunting area on foot or come down the mountain with a chamois in your rucksack, it only takes a few seconds to remove the buttstock with the SUS and reduce the size of the S 404 with 51 cm (20 in) barrel to an impressively packable 69 cm (27 in) overall. The S 404 can traverse the most rugged trail yet can go from portable to shootable in moments.
