NEW from SIG Sauer comes the Magnum Cross! The Cross is SIG’s lightweight bolt-action rifle series. This new Magnum version is only offered in .300 Win Mag but more calibers are expected shortly. 

The barrel is 5R, quick change, and the Magnum version incorporates many upgrades normally found only in the PRS Cross. 

From a full ARCA rail to the PRS safety with built-in thumb shelf, the Magnum Cross has some nice new features.

24” barrel and just under 9lbs keep this a packable rifle while still delivering on the magnum ballistics. 

The orginonal Cross in 6.5 Creedmoor is a favorite of mine, so the new Magnum version is exciting to see. Hopefully, we’ll see more calibers and options coming quickly.

Let us know in the comments what magnum caliber you might be looking forward to. My pick is 300 PRC and 7 PRC.

The development of the CROSS Magnum pushes the boundaries of innovation for a bolt-action platform and delivers on precision, power, and performance” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales.  “Starting with the receiver design, the CROSS Magnum allows for easy barrel changes while keeping your scope and pic-rail mounted, adds a new folding hinge for easier, intuitive folding, better stock-retention and a stronger lock-up, includes a full-length ARCA and M-LOK rail for maximum tripod and bipod usability and adjustment in the field, while the integrated radial compensator design reduces the felt recoil of the magnum caliber by forty-five percent.  The CROSS Magnum is feature-rich, performance built, and ready for the hunt.

The SIG SAUER CROSS Magnum is a bolt-action rifle chambered in 300 Win Mag with a 24” user changeable 5R barrel, aluminum coyote anodized frame, and a two-stage match trigger.  The rifle features the new magnum action receiver with a free-floating handguard, a full-length M-LOK™ and ARCA™ rail handguard, forward angle PRS style grip and right thumb rest safety, a folding adjustable precision stock and ships with a 6-round AICS magazine.
