Saphire Thumbhole










Rifled, interchangeable



Sabatti Saphire Thumbhole: the fast-hunting rifle

The Sabatti SAPHIRE (Sabatti All Purpose Hunting Italian Rifle) is a soberly designed bolt-action hunting rifle with some astonishing features.

The rifle features Sabatti Saphire action – a departure from the Company’s traditional Rover action design. The smooth-running three locking lugs bolt is hosted inside a 7075-T6 alloy receiver that’s both lightweight and extremely resistant. A built-in Picatinny rail provides plenty of room for optics.

The cold-hammer forged steel barrel, with Sabatti MRR multi-radial rifling, guarantees excellent levels of accuracy and service life.

The muzzle is threaded and covered by a removable thread protector, allowing for the installation of the shooter’s choice of muzzle devices.

Barrel interchangeability is one of the main features of the Sabatti Saphire rifle: barrels can be purchased separately, in different calibers, and swapped by a good armorer with a few simple tools. Replacement of the magazine and bolt head may be necessary when shifting from the factory caliber to another.

The Thumbhole-style polymer stock makes the Sabatti Saphire rifle more apt for quick, instinctive engagement of moving game in the thickest of the woods.

The Sabatti Saphire bolt-action rifle is available in multiple configurations, with different styles of stocks, barrels, and triggers.
