Colt-Sauer Sporting Rifle

     Notes: This was a collaborative venture between Colt Firearms of America and SiG-Sauer of Switzerland. The result is a smooth shooting bolt-action rifle of high quality. The weapon is tapped for sights. The weapon is rare, since it was not mass-produced. 

     Twilight 2000 Notes: There were some instances of NATO, Australian, and, strangely enough, Saudi snipers using this weapon.

Howa/Axiom Varminter

     Notes: Howa has long manufactured their Model 1500 Varminter rifle, usually selling it through a variety of other companies in the US and elsewhere.  One of those import sellers is Legacy Sports; they also sell a version of the Howa 1500 featuring a Knoxx Industries Axiom stock and a Nikko-Stirling 4-16x44mm Nighteater telescopic sight (included in the price below).  This version of the Howa 1500 also features a bull-profile barrel that is free-floating; barrel lengths may be 20 or 24 inches.

     The Knoxx Axiom stock features a double recoil-reducing design; not only does the pistol grip slide back and forth slightly in relation to the receiver, but the stock itself has a heavy-duty recoil buffer.  The stock is polymer and may be had in black or a Mossy Oak Brush camouflage pattern.  In 2007, a Montana Camo Prairie Ghost pattern could also be had, but this pattern was discontinued in 2008.  The stock has a removable cheekpiece and a thick rubber recoil pad, and is adjustable for length of pull.  The stock comes with two sling swivels and several attachment points for the swivels.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This rifle is not available in the Twilight 2000 timeline.
