This is a Sabatti STR Mk2 (latest version) and is nearly brand new having only fired 155rds. I purchased the rifle to learn about the 6.5mm Creedmoor cartridge and to study the Sabatti design. I am usually quite critical of new designs but I must say this is one of the best “of the shelve” rifles that I have studied in recent years and the rifle is both reliable, very capable and can easily engage targets at 1000 yrds plus. Overall condition is superb with no marks or sign of wear anywhere. Bore is bright and the multi radial rifling is perfect, metal work finish is perfect with 100% finish. Dues to the rifles nearly new condition the rifle has been inspected and serviced only.
Metal work is very good with no damage and blacking is 100%. Receiver markings are limited serial number, company logo, proof marks and inspectors stamps. There is no wear to the receiver and the bolt cycles smoothly without any excess movement. The receiver is fitted with a 20 Moa scope base. Trigger unit is a single pull with a fine crisp release at 1lb 13oz.
The bolt has been inspected and function checked only. Bolt face is excellent and unmarked, The bolt head has traditional extractor and ejector and ejects empty cases very effectively. Bolt is fitted with a tactical bolt knob.
The barrel is a heavy varmint profile barrel with multi radial rifling and a perfect bore. The muzzle is fitted with a muzzle break which can be replaced with a thread protector should the user not want the sometimes unwanted effects of a muzzle break.
The STR aluminium tactical chassis system is a superb design and has more picatinney rails that you can count. The magazine has been replaced by a superior Magpul PMAG 10 magazine the functions and cycles without fault. The pistol grip is fitted with an ergonomic grip and the butt is fully adjustable. Although not shown in the picture, the butt has been fitted with a small picatinney rail, allowing a monopod to be fitted should the user wish. The butt assembly is foldable and can be replaced with any M16 compatible butt assembly.
Scope, rings and bipod are for show only and are not included in the sale.
