New Sabatti Classic 92 Silver coin finish engraved receiver. 45-70 Side by Side double big game rifle. Double triggers with Extractors.
The 45-70 has a long and distinguished history with service over 140 years. It is very capable of taking any North American game and is a popular bear guide back up cartridge.
It is an excellent guide rifle. Short, light and fast handling, shoulders quick like a fine shotgun with plenty of power for any North American game as well being able to handle most African game.
Designed and manufactured to assure performance, strength, reliability, and accuracy. The receiver is forged and milled from a solid block of high strength steel.
IFG Sabatti rifles are built with the latest CNC machinery for tight tolerance, precision fit and lower cost of production blended with Old World craftsmanship to have the best of both worlds.
All Classic 92 rifles have a mono barrel block with dual lugs for extraordinary strength and easily handle 9.3x74R or modern high pressure 45-70 ammunition.
This rifle has double triggers with extractors. Extractors are preferred by some hunters because they are foolproof reliable and the action is easier to close.
The safety is tang mounted and slides forward to fire.
Engraved Silver Coin finished receiver with wild boar scene. The receiver is equal in size of a 20 gauge side by side shotgun..
24" barrels are made from 4140 chrome molybdenum steel and are cold hammer forged. They are hand regulated and brazed for extraordinary strength and long life, then finished in a high luster blued.
All IFG Sabatti rifles are proof tested by Italian law to C.I.P. standards at 25% over pressure of standard factory ammunition. The barrels are measured before and after firing two over pressure rounds and checked for any changes in measurements. Only then will the barrels be stamped with the Government's Proof House stamp and returned to the manufacturer for sale.
Fiber Optic front and rear express sight. The rifle is pre sighted and regulated for use with 325 grain Hornady FTX ammunition at 2050 FPS. However, the rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation. Adjustments are made by replacing the front sight blades available at IFG.
A Weaver style scope base is included with mounting screws. An optional 12mm European quick detachable scope base is available from IFG. The scope base is designed to straddle the quarter rib behind the rear sight and attaches with four provided screws. The European 12mm Contessa type base is the preferred base for this type of rifle due to its low profile, strong recoil lug and the ability to quickly remove your scope and still use your express sights over the base. Also, this type of base does not detract from the clean appearance of the rifle.
The beautiful enhanced walnut stock with full Bavarian cheek piece and beavertail forearm are hand checkered and oil finished. For added comfort, the stock has a vented recoil pad.
We provide a set of non-detachable sling swivels with the rifle but they are not installed because some hunters prefer not to have a sling on a dangerous game rifle. If you prefer sling swivels, the provided swivels can be installed by any competent gunsmith.

Craig Boddington recently tested and reviewed several of the new Sabatti rifles and said they were some of the finest double rifles he has ever shot at any price. He was so impressed that he purchased one of the Sabatti rifles he reviewed. See his Article in Petersen Hunting Dangerous Game Issue December 2016.
