Gun Report

SIG Sauer Model SHR 970 Walnut .270 Win.

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We liked the SIG, and its modest $550 price. It shot well, though it needed some minor trigger work. The SIG is a fine alternative to the more common Remingtons, Winchesters, and Rugers seen in so many hunters' hands and gun racks. Bonus: An interchangeable barrel feature.

If U.S. shooters can live with the non-U.S. looks of this Swiss rifle, they're in for a treat, we feel. The test scope is an Artemis 3-9X.
The guts of the SIG show simple, clean workmanship and innovative design.
This bottom view of the front of the SIG's receiver ring shows the simple manner in which the barrel is retained. This is excellent machining.
A polymer block takes recoil from the integral lug on the bottom of the action. A similar but smaller insert at the rear ensures the stock won’t split. There is no wood between the trigger cutout and the magazine box area.
