Hand Cocking System

Hand Cocking System 

As with the S 404, the S 303’s ergonomically perfect and smooth metal cocking slide on the bolt shroud also allows the rifle to be cocked both comfortably and extremely silent. By pressing the button with the thumb, the cocking slide silently slides back into the uncocked position. In addition it is also possible to load and unload the rifle in the uncocked position: To do so, simply tap the cocking slide and safely open the S 303.

Maximum Precision

Sauer Universal Mount

Sauer Universal Mount 

From now on, the S 404’s proven and return to zero Sauer Universal Mount (SUM) also is the measure of things with the new S 303. This ensures that the shooter can focus on the target at lighnitng-fast speed and does not need to lift his head in order to use the full potential of accuracy. The SUM is available for all common mounting rails as well as for all ring diameters from 1 inch to 40 mm.
