Sauer 404
Silence XTC

Low weight, optimal noise reduction, reduced recoil – the new S 404 Silence XTC is the perfect unity of timeless gun design, innovative engineering with the latest suppression technology.

The new S 404 Silence XTC

Its integrated moderator made out of lightweight titanium protects the hearing of hunter and dog. The carbon thumbhole-stock made out of elaborately hand-laid carbon fibres offers the best damping performance and adds to the overall low weight of the S 404 Silence XTC. The harmonious combination of the integrated moderator and the carbon thumbhole-stock not only guarantees optimum balance, but also minimizes recoil.

Sophisticated Design

Perfect Balance

Perfect Balance 

The continuously smooth barrel-moderator combination evenly distributes the moderator’s weight over the entire length and thus provides less top-heaviness as when using an over or on-barrel moderator.

Harmonious Look

In terms of design, the barrel-moderator combination appears to be a stronger Match barrel thus making the S 404 a true eyecatcher.

Pure Ergonomics

Hightech meets ergonomics: The Synchro XTC combines the unique benefits of a thumbhole stock with those of carbon fibre. The stock’s adjustable comb together with the Sauer Quattro trigger, turn the S 404 Silence XTC into an ultimate specialist regarding weight, ergonomics, shooting comfort and individual adjustment options.

Maximum Safety

Adjustable trigger pull weight

Adjustable trigger pull weight 

An adjustable trigger featuring four different trigger pull weights that are individually adjustable. This is the perfect answer to the physiological effect chain of knowledge and acting. Crisp 550, 750, 1000 or 1250 g (1.2, 1.6, 2.2 or 2.7 lb) leave no doubts that your S 404 is already programmed for success prior to taking your shot.

Hitting the target safely thanks to adjustable trigger blade

Hitting the target safely thanks to adjustable trigger blade 

Every successful competition shooter knows: Only the optimum position of the shooting finger on the trigger blade provides proper trigger pull and controlled shooting, without the risk of missing the target. With an 8 mm (0.3˝ ) adjustment range for length of pull and a left-to-right swivel range of 5 degrees, the S 404’s extra-wide trigger blade guarantees each shooter optimal contact to reliably hit the target.

Maximum Flexibility

One system, pure modularity

The modular design of the S 404 enables every SAUER 404 owner to convert their rifle to the Silence version.
