One-of-a-kind masterpieces

You probably cannot improve a bolt action rifle by J.P. SAUER & SOHN technically but every rifle can become a personality. According to this claim the Atelier 1751 by J.P. SAUER & SOHN knows almost no boundaries to fantasy and design when it comes to your individually manufactured rifle.

Man vs. Beast

Man vs. Beast  

The main engraving shows the epic battle between Man and beast in front of the prehistoric landscape made of gold. The prehistoric cave bear (ursus spelaeus) was known as the king of predators and the epitome of ”the beast”. The right part of the main motive shows the rock that bears the bear in his cave, surrounded by ivy leafs. A 40.000 year old tusk of a cave bear is used as bolt knob and forend and Pistol grip plate shows each a nearly 40 Million year old amber including prehistoric insects. That’s the homage to the History of evolution and the epic battle of Life between man and beast.
