A Fendt 1050 Vario in 9,3x62

Theme-Gun by Fendt und J.P. Sauer & Sohn

How can one best support the commitment of hunters and farmers to a healthy environment and biodiversity? This question has been answered by Fendt and J.P. Sauer & Sohn in a unique way never attempted before by any gunmaker – ever. In close cooperation with Germany’s oldest gunmaker, the longtime agricultural machine manufacturer from Marktoberndorf in the Allgäu has created a so-called theme rifle based on Germany’s Number 1 large tractor transposed to the most sophisticated hunting rifle in the world.

We hereby introduce the S 404 “Fendt 1050 Vario”, a completely new interpretation of the meaning of the word “customized” as it applies to the gunmaker’s art. Small game animals are the ones who will profit the most from this one-of-a-kind project since this shootable Fendt “Diesel horse” is a donation that will be auctioned off with the help of Frankonia Jagd’s online auction house Auctronia (www.auctronia.de/sauer-fendt) to benefit the German Hunting Association’s (DJV) project “Network Open Fields Biosphere”.

The breech bolt was fashioned to simulate the perforated exhaust pipe shield. This S 404, peppered with tiny round depressions and coated in black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon), kicks out fired cases instead of exhaust gases in style.

Just like on the big original, twelve miniature acorn nuts on threaded studs worked into the magazine floorplate give the impression that one is looking at a real tractor wheel.

The whole thing is rounded out with a fluted barrel with nickel-plated sight bases and a chrome-plated muzzle thread protector, the diesel horse logo in the pistol grip and the familiar model badge on the receiver.
