Horner’s M400

I’ve met world champion 3-Gun competitor Daniel Horner on several occasions and can vouch he is one heck of a nice guy in addition to being an amazing shot. With that being said, New Hampshire-based Sig Sauer this week announced the new DH3 (give you three guesses what “DH” stands for) competition platform in its M400 rifle series.

The M400 DH3 rifle is a Sig Direct Impingement aluminum frame rifle with a Cerakote Elite Titanium finish and DH3 fully-adjustable competition stock. Standard from the factory is a two-stage adjustable Timney Daniel Horner signature trigger and a 1:8-twist 16-inch fluted stainless .223 Wylde-chambered barrel with a three-chamber compensator for recoil mitigation. Other features include a low-profile 3-gun handguard with M-LOK slots, and ambi controls, including bolt catch/release, charging handle, and selector switch.

Horner, considered one of the top multi-gun and 3-gun shooters in the world with over 125 championship titles at the world, national, regional, and state levels to his name, has been wearing Team SIG’s colors for the past couple of years, and it is in this collaboration that the M400 DH3 was developed.

Plus it doesn’t look that bad…

Sig Makes a Return to the Bolt Gun Market

Back in the late 1990s Sig Sauer marketed a short-lived (two years in the catalogs) bolt-action rifle. Geared to sportsmen, it was the European-made SHR (Swiss Hunting Rifle). As both Swiss SIG and German Sauer had a heritage in making both, the SHR should have been a no-brainer.

Boom.

Now, with the SHR in the rearview for two decades, New Hampshire-based Sig Sauer has a domestic precision bolt-action hunting rifle, the CROSS.

The rifle– which will be available in 6.5 Creedmoor, 308 Winchester, and the upcoming .277 SIG Fury Hybrid cartridge– has a one-piece aluminum receiver with a folding adjustable SIG precision stock. Using a stainless steel barrel that runs 16-inches (.308/.277) or 18-inches (6.5CM) long, overall length remains compact at about 36-inches. With the stock folded, you are looking at a 25-inch pack gun.

Unloaded weight eight is under 6.5-pounds for all models, a key takeaway from the design philosophy.
