Sauer & Sohn, frequently referred to as Sauer, is Germany's oldest firearms manufacturer and the second oldest in the world, founded in 1751. Even though they have been around for nearly three hundred years, they remain innovative. One of their most known firearms is Sauer 38H, an advanced semiautomatic pistol that was produced in great numbers – it featured a cocking/decocking lever.
Sauer 404 is a bolt-action rifle that was launched in 2015. It succeeded the 202 model. On the outside, it is very similar to its predecessor. Sauer has made changes regarding the safety – the rifle is no longer equipped with a down/up push system but with a de-cocker. On the receiver, there are no mounting holes – for the 404, Sauer came up with a unique QD mounting system. There is a lock on the magazine release button and the trigger is of a 4-weight type. Sauer introduced SUK (Sauer Universal Key) with the 404. It is integrated into the sling swivel in the front part of the rifle and can be used to make trigger adjustments and remove the barrel, butt, and forend. Sauer chambers this rifle for .243 Win., 6.5x55, 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 Win., 7x64, .308 Win., .30-06 Sprg., 8x57 IS, 9.4x62, 7mm Rem. Mag., .300 Win. Mag., 8x68 S, .338 Win. Mag., .375 H&H, .404 Jeffery, and 10.3x60R.
MAKuick mounts are robust and reliable. They offer a 100 % repeatability, meaning that the user can remove them and put them back onto the rifle without the need to re-zero. MAKuick mounts are designed so that they can withstand the recoil of even the most powerful calibers out there. They are lightweight because both the base and the rings are made from aluminum. The whole system that is in contact with the rifle (the clamping assembly) is made from steel. MAKuick is a versatile series of mounts – it allows mounting of all sorts of rings, all sorts of mounting rails (LM, ZM/VM, SR, Convex), different adapters that allow mounting of other devices such as ATN X-Sight; Pulsar Digisight, Apex, Trail; Fortuna devices etc. MAKuick mounts made for the mounting of riflescopes with a rail underneath are made of one part. Because of this, they are more robust, durable and reliable. For digital and thermal optical devices, the buyer has to pick a MAKuick base with four holes on which rings are usually put. Instead of the rings, the user mounts an adapter on top that works as a connector between the thermal optics and the MAKuick base. MAK makes one-piece MAKuick bases for the following rifles: CZ 527, CZ 550, Merkel KR 1, Merkel RX Helix – also fits on all Picatinny rails, Sauer 303, Sako 75, Sako 85 S, Sako 85 M, Tikka T3 and Blaser rifles. They also make a MAKuick base for break barrel rifles with a 12 mm dovetail and for break barrel rifles with a 14.5 mm dovetail (usually found on Czech break barrel rifles).
A MAKuick base can be converted to a mount for the following devices: Dedal Termo; Fortuna One; COT; ATN X Sight I, X Sight II; Pulsar Trail, Apex, Digisight; Yukon Photon XT; and STANAG. The adapters for these devices fit into the holes originally meant for rings. Their upper part is designed so that it can be mounted to one of the optical devices mentioned above.
First, the user has to make sure that the rifle is fixed (it is advised that the rifle is put into a rifle holder). Once the mount is put onto the mounting surface and fixed by rotating the levers for 180°, the lock screws have to be unscrewed. The user then adjusts the clamping force of the adjustment screws with a hex key so that they are tightened but not too tightened. The lock screws have to be re-tightened to complete the mounting procedure. The recommended tightening torque is 4–5 Nm.
The product has a warranty period of 10 years.
