The Sig Sauer Company was founded an Switzerland way back in the 1850’s und has been a lang time manufacturer von pistols weil das the Swiss military as well as law enforcement agencies. The company zu sein now headquartered in New Hampshire here in the vereinigte staaten but blieb has production facilities in Switzerland und Italy and also here in the USA. Your pistols have had a stellar reputation zum decades now und with together notable teams such as the US marine SEALs, united state Air Marshalls and others all utilizing their firearms, your popularity and product line have been growing. Die Sig Sauer rifles encompass several different lines such as their 5.56 und 7.62 combat rifles, Sauer hunting rifles, and Blaser rifles. Zum a long time a part von their rifle line has been the SSG 3000 sniper rifle, but the SSG 3000 has actually gone v some current changes. One was that die production of the SSG 3000 was going kommen sie be moved from Germany, wherein many des the Sig firearms are manufactured, to ns USA. This change des manufacturing location also included a change to ns actual artificial stock und one other significant change, die price. The preis on ns SSG 3000 in reality dropped from around $2500, zu less than $1500 MSRP. This was a surprise und it supposed that ns SSG 3000 came to be a player an the low-mid range tactical rifles.

The Sig Sauer SSG 3000 comes in its very own hard case from the factory with ns typical assortment of neu rifle documentation including bei owner’s manual and warranty info as well as part minor preventive parts, a nice tactical cleaning kit, assorted Allen wrenches zum rifle maintenance and something we always like to seen with a rifle, a factory prüfen target fired hinweisen 100 meters. It zu sein nice to see rifle manufacturers willing to gestanden behind their products und provide accuracy proof. Once die case was opened us began to take a an ext detailed watch at ns rifle itself and one point that jumped out hinweisen us was that the barrel was labeled, “Made an Germany”. Our understanding was that the neu SSG 3000 would certainly be manufactured an the USA, dafür we room assuming that Sig had actually some present inventory castle needed to clear the end from ns German make rifles und that eventually die manufacturing wollen move to the USA factory. There is another possibility ist that the barreled actions möchte continue to be made bei Germany and then final mating des the barreled actions to the stock will be, or is currently gift done, in the USA. But due to the fact that the prüfung target was labeled an German and was shot weist 100 meters und not yards, us concluded the this actual completed rifle was manufactured an Germany.


If freundin look punkt the bild above, that bild is des the initial previous generation Sig Sauer SSG 3000, jetzt compare that to ns other images on this page of the present SSG 3000 und you will see some des the differences. Die shape des the stock zu sein similar, yet with differences zu include ventilation holes bei the older stock, over there were deshalb auxiliary sights top top the alt rifle, but not the new. Deswegen there room definite differences betwee the old und new rifles and we wollen look at all von the einzelheiten of the new rifle.


The roden on the neu SSG 3000 ist made des a type of Polymer, or difficult plastic, yet do notfall confuse this with a cheaper flexibel plastic the one can find on die cheaper share from Remington, prefer on their SPS rifles, or even a Choate stock. The plastic/polymer is much much more firm and solid and feels quiet durable. No it zu sein not a laid trost fiberglass roden like a McMillan or a composite Kevlar material like HS Precision, but it ist solid und should hold hoch well. The buttstock itself has a rubber recoil pad however it deshalb has a spacer system that allows for adjusting ns length of pull von adding or removed spacers. Here punkt Sniper main we tend to prefer spacer system setups versus ns adjustable setups that use screws or knobs, ns reason ist because the spacer system give a an ext solid foundation that is not going kommen sie move over time. Granted, they are much more difficult and time consuming zu adjust ns length of pull (LOP), however once set, there ist no worry about them moving.


The SSG3000 deshalb has bei adjustable cheekpiece that adjusts up and down. The way the adjustment is made is by pressing bei two taste on one of two people side of the reduced portion von the cheekpiece itself. Both des these knoten need to be pressed simultaneously, which occasionally proved kommen sie be difficult. The buttons have a strong spring resistance and it tun können take some effort zu get both des them pressed in fully bei order zu adjust die cheekpiece. Castle then schutz to continue to be held in while die cheekpiece ist moved trost or down. As soon as the buttons are released, they möchte lock right into one of several grooves that will keep die cheekpiece from moving up or down. While it zu sein somewhat des a pain to adjust, it is a solid cheekpiece the did not move throughout our trial and error once it was secured bei place. We cannot say the same weil das the saddle style adjustable cheekpieces discovered on McMillan stocks.

Just behind the cheekpiece there space flush cup receivers on both sides von the stock and combined with ns same flush cups hoch on die forearm, the allows die SSG3000 to be offered with flush cup compatible slings, und we particularly like ns fact the they room on ns left und right sides which allows weil das the rifle to lay flat on its side when slung top top the back of an operator. Just one des those little things that sie normally do notfall think about until you are operating out an the field und notice how ns rifle slings comfortably. The zuerst thoughts around the stange are the it ist cheap, but once we started noticing some von these types of features und the reality that die stock zu sein quiet solid, ours opinion adjusted a bit.


The pistol tight on die SSG 3000 is nearly vertical and it filling the hand nicely. The does not have the big palm swells discovered on some various other stocks, but it ist very nicely contoured to rechts the hand very well. There zu sein some rough texturing on die pistol fixed area to provide a an excellent no slip surface zum the firing hand as well. There ist a deep depression where ns thumb wraps about the rückseitig of die grip that more enhances die comfort und position of the hand; it ist nearly as viel of a pistol tight as zu sein found on in AR or other battle rifle. Ns placement of the hand is setup an extremely well to place the trigger bei the ideal location kommen sie allow a straight back trigger pull.

The action des the SSG3000 is also a unique setup as it has actually a flat mounting area at die rear des the activity where it zu sein mated to the stock, however as you can see in the picture below, the trigger mechanism und the DBM arrangement all combine to make a single mechanism. Ns bottom des the action zu sein somewhat des a block that ist solid und provides a hard area for the stock und action zu be joined. This flat area does necessitate the the roden be squared off kommen sie match it nur above die pistol grip. Around ns trigger und DBM device the stock maintains a relatively wide and blocky shape before tapering to die forearm.

In front von the magazine and action the stock narrows and actually has bei indention on either side von the forearm. Ns forearm narrows und is not as broad as many contemporary sniper rifle stocks. Die forearm is deshalb taller than plenty of other flatter roden designs like the McMillan A5 i beg your pardon makes ns rifle not quite together solid when shooting indigenous a sandbag. Die forearm thickens up a wenig where die flushcups room located and the forearm itself is quiet stiff v no flex, which eliminates concerns von the stock touching ns barrel. Ns barrel is free floating all die way rückseitig to die action und there are so two swivel studs kommen sie be used zum a sling and bipod and the flush cups on one of two people side. Deshalb on each side von the forearm ist a rail mounting area zu attach klein picatinny rails to.


The literary works from Sig Sauer, both printed and on the web, suggests that the stock has aluminum bedding and we were curious as to ns style und size des the bedding block so we decided zu go ahead and remove ns barreled activity from the stange to see what we can find. An additional practical feature with the SSG3000, ist the modular design which zu sein talked about bei the user manual for the rifle. The barrel ist designed zu be conveniently swapped out bei a matt of minutes, kommen sie include a .22 LR training kit that kann be used. Part von the modular entwurf is the ability zu remove the stange easily, which really isn’t difficult on most rifles, and it was not hard on ns SSG. Nur two roden retention bolts room used; one at the front of the cause guard, however then die second actually comes hoch through ns pistol grip. You schutz to remove die cap from the bottom des the pistol grip und then die rear bolt is accessible. While this design works fine, the does administer a belästigt for aftermarket roden manufacturers und it deshalb provides an extra step to go with if bei operator want to nur check die torque of the screws holding die stock and action together.

UPDATE!!As kann sein be seen bei the foto below, it appears that there zu sein no bedding or aluminum bedding block and we at first reported that the stock did not schutz the declared bedding block. However we oase since to be informed und discovered that there is bei fact in aluminum bedding block, yet it zu sein covered with die synthetic zutat rather 보다 having the barreled action mount straight against the aluminum. Ns mating des the roden to the action ist solid und it ist a tight fit. Ns polymer plastic will so not das alter shape with transforming weather conditions. Carry out notice ns three bolts in the bild below at the lower part des the action where die barrel mates up to it, this bolts room used to hold die barrel in place and is what allows for rapid barrel replacement.

The cause guard is a sturdy aluminum trigger guard that deshalb incorporates the detachable magazine. Ns guard itself zu sein wide and oversized kommen sie allow gloved fingers plenty of room to operate die trigger. You möchte notice an the bildern that there room holes in the guard itself, this are zu allow the small wrenches access kommen sie adjust die trigger, i beg your pardon itself zu sein adjustable weil das takeup and weight von pull. Die trigger is a two stage trigger which has actually a lighter zuerst stage, measured at 2 pounds, and it has perhaps a 4 minutes 1 of bei inch or take trip before the second stage. After the erste stage has actually been take away up, there zu sein additional resistance at die second stage of the trigger and then when that has actually been overcome, ns firing pin is released. Die manual indicates weight on the second stage ist set at ns factory punkt 3.3 lbs, wie we measured it on the prüfung rifle; it was slightly more than that punkt 3.5 pounds. Die trigger itself brakes very cleanly and the trigger feel through both stages zu sein very good. We choose two stage triggers ~ above combat sniper rifles and this is one of the nicer ones we have used and we oase no real complaints about it.

The detachable magazine zu sein a single stack 5 round zeitschrift that ist a little bit tall, yet due to die designed shape of the stock, that fits do the washing up into the deep belly von the stange beneath die action. There zu sein a press button just in front des the zeitschrift that zu sein reachable to niederdrücken with the pointer finger while the operator holds the base von the magazine. The magazine drops easily without any kind of problems und when placed rückseitig into ns magazine-well and pressed up, it breaks positively in place leaving no doubt wie it zu sein locked in place. Ns skinny magazine-well can be a little tricky at times to feeding the magazine into, but in its entirety it ist a sensible design.


The activity itself zu sein fairly large wie compared kommen sie the likes of a Remington, but it is solid and durable and one would certainly imagine quiet stiff. It ist easy to lakers where die action begun life as a huge diameter round piece of bar stock but has been shave on ns sides into a triangle profile which add to to the impression von stiffness and durability. Zu help further with the stiffness des the action die ejection port zu sein a smaller sized closed design that zu sein solid on top, as opposed kommen sie the open top style actions like ns Remington 700. This provides it more tough to einzel feed and to reach an and stealthily eject a case, but it so aides zum keeping international objects out des the action and more importantly, the does include stiffness to die action, which zu sein always good weil das accuracy. An front von the ejection port die action tapers smoothly zurück out into its round profile where the barrel fits into die action. Top top top of the activity is in integral zero MOA rail zum mounting a scope. A fünfzehn or 20 MOA kann nicht would it is in nice, yet this shortcoming kann be addressed in several methods such as the selected border or ring/adapter selection.

The bolt has six locking lugs aligned into two rows of three i beg your pardon allows die bolt to schutz a brief 60 degree bolt rotation. Die shorter rotation makes it easier zu cycle ns bolt, specifically rapidly. Ns knob zu sein actually a round hard resin (not really sure what the material is) form ball and it is nicely sized und easy zu operate. When the bolt ist closed there zu sein a cocking indicator punkt the rückseitig of ns bolt shroud which zu sein a an excellent quick indicator if the rifle zu sein ready zu fire. The bolt is finished an polished steel on the main bolt body and black on die rest. Ns action ist precisely machined as ist the bolt i m sorry slides and cycles an extremely smoothly together a result. One downside to ns polished bolt body zu sein that we schutz experienced a same amount des flash rusting on die polished part des the bolt. Die light rust always wipes away conveniently with a dry cloth, but a irradiate coat of oil is needed anytime ns rifle ist stored for more than a day. There is so a security on die right side des the rear tang on die action. When that safety is pressed down it locks whatever up und prevents firing the rifle as well as cycling the bolt. When ns safety is pressed down, a protrusion comes down in front of the cause inside von the create guard. Die trigger finger tun können then drücken sie that protrusion up to take die rifle off des safe.


Overall ns rifle does schutz a plastic feel zu it when holding the stock, but ns plastic ist hard und solid und I doubt it ist actually a traditional plastic. The rifle does schutz some weight kommen sie it, over 12 pounds without optics, und while ns length von pull can be a wenig short, it can be addressed von adding some extr spacers to die rear von the rifle. Ns bolt operates smooth and the trigger ist nice. With ns examination of the rifle complete, it was time to prüfung the accuracy und see exactly how it performs!


For the shooting portions des the prüfung we an installed a Leupold unterschrift 8 3.5-25x56mm scope using IOR steel 35mm rings directly to die integral Sig rail. At ns front of the rail there ist a point out where the aforementioned barrel band attaches to. There was plenty von room with die rail kommen sie mount die scope und with die larger 35mm tube and 56mm objective; die scope walk sit up more than we generally like. Ns cheekpiece was then readjusted to ns proper height kommen sie allow a an excellent cheek weld. Together we pointed out earlier, die adjustable cheekpiece ist intended zu be quick and easy, but it is a bit von a pain und it does take it a little bit of effort zu get zu set to nur where freundin want it. Once it was, it stayed set und firm weil das all the shooting sessions.

The prüfung target the shipped with the rifle had a 5 shot group that measure .436″ center to center deswegen heading into die shooting portion des the prüfen we knew what die rifle must be qualified of. Us are not sure if Sig offers a rifle vice wie man firing their test groups, but it did administer a goal for us zu strive for. Ns shooting testen were performed during so late winter deshalb the temperatures were an the low kommen sie mid thirties und typically it was cloudy through occasional light snow, but ns winds were calm during all die shooting sessions. To prüfung the can be fried accuracy of the rifle punkt 100 yards we usage a sandbag nach oben front und a sand sock bei the rear. For the Sig, us selected a variety of different ammo the included the standard Federal gold Medal enhance 168gr, HSM 168gr AMAX Match, HSM M118LR 175gr und a 168gr Swiss P match load. Die results are listed below.

AmmoAverageBestAverage MOA
Federal gold Medal enhance 168gr0.850″.665″0.81 MOA
HSM 168gr AMAX Match0.678″.575″0.65 MOA
Swiss ns 168gr HPBT Match0.509″.308″0.49 MOA
HSM M118LR Equiv 175gr Match0.587″.345″0.56 MOA

As ist evident from the results above, the rifle shot really well for in off the shelf factory developed rifle zum under $1500 USD. How amazing it shot the excellent Federal gelb Medal enhance ammo the worst, however it was ausblüten well under 1 MOA. Ns rifle really appeared to love the Swiss p ammo v it having actually both ns best ultimate group as well as die best mean with in average gruppe size under .5 MOA. Probably there zu sein some connection with ns European ammo linked with a europe rifle! the was so nice to see the more heavier 175gr ammo shoot an extremely well through die rifle as well. Shooting at longer ranges resulted in continued impressive performance with die rifle maintaining ns expected accuracy and when combined with ns very nice Leupold Mk8 optics it was a very effective combination at all arrays within ns capability von the .308 cartridge.

Recoil was well managed with die weight des the rifle, but the flash hider zu sein not a muzzle brake and does notfall reduce the felt recoil. It was good to see that the flash hider walk not oase any harbor on die bottom that would certainly kick up dirt and dust zu give away a snipers position. Weil das this preliminary test we did notfall try a suppressor und I doubt we might do so bei the future. With ns lighter load barrel i fully expect die point of impact to shift considerably wie man a suppressor zu sein hung on ns end, but I also expect accuracy to remain excellent.


The two phase trigger zu sein very nice and one of the highlights of the rifle. It is similar to the excellent Sako TRG triggers und can be offered without problems and quiet effectively, also with gloves on. Ns trigger weight zu sein just around right weil das a combat oriented sniper rifle, it is not too light kommen sie be dangerous in the field, but is light enough zu allow specific shooting. The lang take hoch on the zuerst stage zu sein just right and then, even through gloves, die weight and feel von the second stage is felt and is smooth. The short 60 degree bolt throw is so a quite feature und allowed for quick bolt manipulation. The einzel stack magazine zu sein tall zum only hold 5 rounds, yet it fed without a problem during all von our tests including rapid bolt manipulation.

The cheekpiece on die rifle zu sein not the most comfortable und on top of that, the has zu be retracted down to its lowest setting bei order kommen sie remove ns bolt from the rifle zum routine cleaning. Then ns operator has to wrestle v it again kommen sie get the to the proper setting, at least, you hope it zu sein the same as that was tonnage time. Probably a little bit von nail polishing or some various other way zu mark in indicator line on the roden where ns preferred cheekpiece setting ist located would be a help here. The safety on ns rifle zu sein different and unique, but it was no belästigung to manipulate once it was understood just how it works. Removing die bolt is deshalb different, with die bolt handle raised; engage the safety über pushing the down, und then die bolt just slides out von the rear of the action. Des course, if die bolt ist down, then ns safety locks it in place. These room all unique und different than normal operating procedures, yet once learned; they space effective und work there is no problem.

So what ist the last verdict on ns rifle? That ist a well question. There is no arguing with ns accuracy and performance des the rifle, it shot an extremely well v several different types des ammo and the modularity des the rifle allows for some interesting capabilities. Supposedly one tun können pick hoch a match grade .260 barrel native Sig und within minutes schutz a .5 MOA .260 rifle. This go allow zum making bei the ar repairs simple as well. The rifle ist comfortable, however the team would have to obtain used to ns rifle together it comes from die factory because after market accessories such as neu stock designs will probably be few and far between. If freundin like the rifle as it is, climate it certainly is worth taking a look at at. Ns polished bolt go need zu be oil regularly zu prevent speed rusting, however that is just a part von routine maintenance, and the documentation needs kommen sie be cleaned up und the functions clarified native Sig. The stock is adjustable so it kann be made to rechts just around any shooter, but die shape des the stock ist a little bit different und some shooters think it has in odd shooting position with a much shorter than median length von pull, however we did not notice this and it zu sein correctable with extr spacers. Deswegen it really comes down kommen sie whether freundin like ns rifle together is, if so, offer it a shot.
