Sig is releasing a brand new precision bolt rifle in .50 BMG called the SIG50. No word yet on an exact release date as it’s still in its developmental stages; however, they had one on display at SHOT. If you’re saying to yourself, “Hey that looks just like a McMillan Tac-50,” well you would be halfway right. When designing the Sig50, Sig Sauer worked with McMillan for to meet some “international requirements,” as Dave Grimshaw states on the video below. Does that mean a foreign military is looking at purchasing some Sig Sauer 50 BMG bolt action beasts?
The SIG50 features a match grade trigger that has a 3.5 pound break, has fully customizable ergonomics, a 29″ heavy fluted barrel and weighs 25 pounds. The adjustable butt stock can also come off making it a little easier to transport. Check out the specs, pics, and a short video of the SIG50 at Shot Show below. My favorite has to be the red dot site–I would love to see someone do some CQB with a bolt action .50 BMG.
