The STR DESERT is the latest addition to the already comprehensive range of Sabatti tactical rifles.

Its technical and mechanical features are the same as the model STR, but the high resistance Cerakote Mc Millian TAN H/203 finish applied to some of its components create the look of “Queen of the Desert”.

While its predecessor, the Tactical Syn. model, was designed mainly for precision target shooting, the STR has been created for tactical “field” applications where superior accuracy and better handling is required.

The STR DESERT rifle comes with the Sabatti signature short action and a 10-round Accuracy International compatible magazine (5 rounds for the Italian market). The barrel is 0.8’’diameter at the muzzle and comes with 5/8’’-24 threads to fit most accessories available on the market today.

Among the range of tactical rifles, this one comes standard with a thread cup and professional muzzle brake with radial holes designed for precision target shooting. For true tactical applications, a 3-chamber compensator is available on request.

The bolt features an interchangeable tactical handle and an external magazine release lever particularly suitable for the faster pace of competitions.

The trigger on this tactical rifle is either the three-lever Match or, on request, the new two-stage Match trigger (DSMT).
The Tactical modular butt and grip are machined from two solid blocks of high resistance Ergal 55 light alloy.

On our tactical rifles there is a fully adjustable butt stock that can be folded to a smaller size for ease of transportation. Additionally, the Model STR can be ordered with or without a butt stock as it fits all “M4” type stocks sold on the market today thus giving every shooter maximum freedom of choice.


The Sabatti MRR barrel is fitted with a custom AR-style Picatinny hand guard that matches the 20 MOA rail on the action. Three additional rails on the hand guard can accommodate any accessory a shooter may want. While the action rail is in steel, the mating full-length top Picatinny rail and the side rails are all machined from solid billets of Ergal 55 alloy.


A synthetic rod connects the barrel cover to the stock body to facilitate free-standing shooting or for ease of transportation with folded stock.
