Sig Sauer has just expanded the CROSS series with the CROSS-PRS, a new bolt-action rifle with match-grade features purpose-built for precision and long-range shooting.
Sig Sauer introduced the original CROSS rifle in 2019, and it was the company’s first foray into bolt-action rifles since the 1990s. It was marketed as a precision hunting rifle, and it was certainly capable of extreme accuracy in all three available calibers, but Sig felt that the design could be accurized even further. Enter the new Sig Sauer CROSS-PRS, a rifle that Sig claims to have match-grade features that make it ideal for the competitive precision long-range shooting world.
The most substantial change implemented into the CROSS-PRS design is the new barrel. While the original CROSS was available with either a 16- or 18-inch barrel, the CROSS-PRS sports a 24-inch, stainless heavy-contour 5R barrel. The barrel is now free-floated as well along with the M-LOK handguard, something that was only true of the handguard on standard CROSS models. Combined with the included match-grade, adjustable 2-stage trigger and bipod-ready Arca rail, the CROSS-PRS should be an extremely capable performer at longer ranges. The overall weight and balance of the gun has been tuned as well.
Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales at Sig Sauer, said this about the new rifle:
The CROSS-PRS is purpose built and feature rich. The heavy structured steel design delivers weight evenly for a balanced feel while reducing recoil to get you back on target faster. Combined with the extreme accuracy of the heavy contour 5R rifled barrel, and folding adjustable steel stock for easy movement, the CROSS-PRS delivers an extremely capable long-range shooting experience that scores big on the range, right out of the box.
The CROSS-PRS will be available in 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Winchester, and both models will ship with two 10-round polymer AICS-style magazines. MSRP is $2,499.99 and it’s shipping to retailers now.
