Made in Switzerland, the SSG 3000 is a extremely well made rifle. It is modular in design, and the stock is of laminated wood and ventilated. The bolt has six lugs and locks into the barrel. There is a rail under the forearm to take accessories. The rifle comes standard with a Hendsoldt scope, but the rings are standard so that can be switched out. Sig has an extremely good reputation for high quality, very accurate weapons, I expect even better from this rifle with accuracy in the .5 MOA or better range.
Sig has made a few modifications to the rifle and now imports them into the U.S.A. This is good news for both Sig and the US shooting public, as I think its a very fine rifle and should be successful in the US Market.
