Our Assessment: This Sauer 202 rifle was produced by the company from 1993-2015 and replaced the earlier Model 200. It was rather popular with consumers as it featured a modular design with interchangeable barrels, this is one of the magnum receivers and it can convert to seven calibers. The 202 was chambered for many cartridges, and this example is chambered for 7mm Remington Magnum, making for a good overall hunting and sporting rifle. This one has a round bolt knob as opposed to the spoonhandle, a steel receiver, and a 26″ barrel. In overall Excellent condition, this 202 has a fine bore and is mechanically sound. The Supreme Lux Magnum was only made from 1994 to 2004 before it was discontinued so this rifle will serve any Sig collector or passionate target shooter well. Please see our photos and good luck!
