Sig Sauer SSG 3000

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a Sig Sauer SSG 3000 rifle in .308 win - either of two models:

 

(i) 26" Target model

 

(ii) 24" Patrol model

 

Not interested in the18" Patrol.

 

These rifles are imported by Sportsman Gun Centre however they don't have anything but the 18" model in stock and no idea when 26"/24" will be received.

 

Does anyone know of a new rifle in stock anywhere, or a low round-count s/h rifle can be found?

 

N.B. I'm aware of two s/h rifles on GunTrader and one on GunStar.

 

Thanks in anticipation ... ... ...

Hi,

 

Both models er in stock in Denmark, so if you are willing to do an import..

 

Are you aware of the option to get at Sauer STR (Skandinavian target rifle)? It's the same rifle as a SSG 300, just without picatinny rail but with an 11mm dovetail instead.

They are sold very cheep here in Denmark (about £6000 s/h) - they are exactly same rifle and do Therefore fit custom stocks like McMillan, Bolthorn etc.

 

Have you tried the Patrol stock? The hand position on the trigger hand dosent fit my hand very good, Therefore i diddent get one of them but bought an Sauer STR instead and ordrerd a New chassis for the Rifle. http://longrangedesign.com/hem/products/jet-01%20chassis%20system.html

 

In Denmark most shooters prefer the rifle in 6.5x55 but it is at switch barrel rifle, so you can easily change barrel or caliber in few minutes yourself. The magasine fit both 308 and 6.5x55

 

I also have a converting kit in 22lr for mine. Nice for traning.

Yes, fully aware of availability in Scandinavia plus the 200 STR, but exchange rates make them prohibitively expensive at present, otherwise I'd buy from Norway/Sweden/Denmark.

 

AFAIK the chassis system you linked to isn't available as yet - I've been following it since first announced.

 

Thanks.

If you read my original post you'd know that a new one is all but unobtainable. The importers have an 18" Patrol model (pretty pointless in my opinion) and they don't even know what that is. They seem totally indifferent to selling me a rifle and had little or no interest in trying to obtain one for me.

 

Despite there being umpteen Sig Sauer SSG 3000 rifles at dealers all over mainland Europe, plus large numbers of Sig Sauer 200 STRs in Norway/Denmark/Sweden, the importers reckon they can't get one for months and months if at all.

 

Never mind, I've located one and paid a deposit on it - FAC goes to Mr Plod tomorrow for a calibre change on a currently open slot.

 

TOPIC CLOSED.
