The Sabatti Urban Sniper bolt-action rifle, available in three different calibers, is a versatile and easy to handle shooting machine, conceived and manufactured as an all-rounder platform that would offer accuracy and performance without being hindered by excessive weight or length, excelling both in sport shooting as well as a Police patrol or tactical rifle.
The Sabatti Urban Sniper rifle is built around a synthetic stock, manufactured out of Nylon with a 30% fiberglass addition to increase its rigidity and its capability to absorb vibrations. The flat lower portion of the handguard makes for a great support surface when firing from a rest or an improvised stand-off, while the vertical pistol grip – connected to the buttstock by two struts, providing a visually appealing and user-friendly quasi-Thumbhole look and feel – makes the Urban Sniper easy to handle and fast to bring on-target at the range, on the hunting fields, or in a tactical situation.
For those situations when extra stability is required for accuracy and off-hand shooting or an improvised rest won’t do, the Sabatti Urban Sniper rifle is fitted from factory with a Picatinny rail segment under the handguard dubbing as an attachment point for a bipod. Additional shooting comfort is provided by a fully adjustable cheek riser, while the length of pull can be customized through a set of spacers. The stock of the Urban Sniper rifle also features standard and QD sling swivel cups.
The Sabatti Urban Sniper rifle feeds through Accuracy International AICS compatible detachable magazines. The magazine release lever is conveniently located under the trigger guard, allowing the shooter to instinctively perform a reload without taking eyes off target.
New for 2021, the Urban Sniper bolt-action rifle features the well-known Blizzard action – Sabatti’s best to date, known worldwide for its performance on tactical and sporting long-range rifles such as the Company’s own Tactical EVO – hosted in a fully CNC-machined steel receiver and featuring an oversized tactical knob that’s screwed on to the cocking handle via a 5/16” thread and can thus be easily replaced with other aftermarket knobs. The bolt body is fully fluted.
A standard, single-lever trigger comes pre-set from factory to approximately 1,1 kg (2.42 lbs) of weight.
A 13-slot MILSTD 1913 Picatinny rail provides a ready-to-go mounting surface for optical sights. The cylindrical steel barrel of the Urban Sniper rifle sports Sabatti’s own, proprietary Multi-Radial Rifling (MRR) pattern, a Sabatti exclusive that earned the Company international praise due to its high accuracy, low bullet deformation factor, and ease of cleaning. A cylindrical muzzle brake is installed from factory on a 5/8”x24 muzzle thread and is easily
replaced with other muzzle devices such as flash hiders or silencers. Now available in two barrel lengths (20” or 24”), the Sabatti Urban Sniper strikes a perfect balance between overall size and optimal ballistics to an average distance of 300 meters; all barrels are fluted to reduce overall weight and increase cooling.
