I've just got back from Elmia Game Fair. A chap i shoot down they range with was manning the stand and he gave me a free ticket to go and shoot the new Sauer 404. The 404 has the same push type safety as the Blaser but is a conventional turn bolt rifle. Very nice rifle that i think will become very popular. Only thing i did not like was that it had a alloy action. For the money the 404 costs i want a steel action.

The rifle was thumbhole stocked and topped with a Zeiss V81.1-8x30. Very nice trigger and smooth bolt. I even managed to shot a very tidy group off hand at the bear target.
