I was looking to purchase a new lightish rifle in .243, and was tossing up between a t3x and kimber hunter, but saw the M18 the other day, reviews look good, and compared to the other 2 rifles are 3 and 6 hundred dollars cheaper. Would love to paw one

They look good. I bought a Sauer 100 at the end of last year, if they were around at the time it would of been a definite option. Double stack 5 rnd mags are cool.

I'm looking at this too. My old boy picked up a 270 M12 extreme a few years back. Nice not of gear. Very accurate. They've are advertising the M18 as 3 or 5 shoot MOA guarantee as well I believe.

Has anyone picked one up yet? What exactly are the differences between Sauer s100 and the M18? Stock looks slightly different but I can't tell much else other than calibre choices.

action screws are T30 screw caps and and washers (yes the screw bolt is fixed on the action, you remove the screw caps and washers the stock come off, be careful don't get the the washer lost)

a fine actions and barrel by the looks of it, stock has an interesting in a good way feel, soft touch grip thingy going on. Good trigger and 5 shot MOA guarantee for sub $900 that sounds like good value to me. I have 1 on back order but wont be here til the new year. Should steal a few T3X sales
