Perfected tradition

Optimised walnut stock

Optimised walnut stock 

The ErgoLux walnut stock in wood grade 2 significantly minimises recoil thanks to its comb slighly rising to the rear. The newly redesigned SAUER cheek piece gives the shooter more positive contact with the rifle.

Maximum flexibility

16 calibres – one promise

16 calibres – one promise 

The modular system of the S 404 allows for the change of stock and barrel within a split second. Using the Sauer SUS universal key which is an onboard folding allen key integrated in the S 404’s detachable fore-end sling swivel, you can easily and quickly exchange calibres and stocks according to your needs.

Safety and modularity combined the smart way

Safety and modularity combined the smart way 

Meeting your friends after hunting – do I leave the rifle in the car? Danger ahead? Not with the S 404. In just two simple steps the bolt head can be separated from the bolt body. Firing the rifle therefore is totally impossible. Changing the bolt head for different calibres is just as safe and easy. This means: safety and modularity are combined the smart way.

Maximum Safety

Ergonomic, simple, safe: The S 404 manual cocking system

Ergonomic, simple, safe: The S 404 manual cocking system  

The ergonomically perfect manual cocikng system of the S 404 provides comfortable and silent cocking. By simply pressing the button with the thumb, the cocking slide silently slides back into the uncocked position. In order to open the bolt in uncocked position, simply tap the cocking slide.

Maximum control

Adjustable trigger pull weight

Adjustable trigger pull weight 

An adjustable trigger featuring four different trigger pull weights that are individually adjustable, is the perfect answer to the physiological effect chain of knowledge and acting. Crisp 550, 750, 1 000 or 1,250 g (1.2, 1.6, 2.2 or 2.7 lb) leave no doubts that your S 404 is programmed for success already 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.

Quality Made in Germany

Cold-hammer forged precision barrel for guaranteed accuracy

Cold-hammer forged precision barrel for guaranteed accuracy 

Barrel and receiver are made on site in Isny/Germany. Every barrel is cold-hammer forged and thus a guarantor for our precision of less than one MOA (approx. 25 mm with 5 shots at 100 metres).

Our receivers are made using the latest CNC milling technology, in order to perfect the symbiosis of barrel and receiver as well as Sauer’s legendary smooth bolt operation.
