    Don't ya get it man? We are the QC team.

    In fairness, the Cross isnít the first bolt rifle to have a trigger problem. It is a Gen 1 Sig, so this, and probably things that havenít surfaced yet are not surprising.

    For me, the package is attractive enough to be part of the informal Sig beta tester team.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    Despite my earlier joke, yes, they do. They do a great job of it too, and they don't get the credit they should for innovation and quality.

    What they don't have is a competent legal team. Things that should be very clear recalls (P320) are called 'voluntary upgrades' and things that should be voluntary upgrades are called recalls (Gen 1 MCX/MPX).

    From their website:

    'Sig Sauer has viewed an online video that presents a single CROSS Bolt-Action Rifle with a potential safety concern. This gun has been returned to Sig Sauer and upon evaluation it has been confirmed that the rifle exhibited a delayed discharge after the trigger was pulled. Sig Sauer has decided to issue a safety recall in order to implement a modification to the firing action to address this potential safety concern.'

    My Gen 1 MCX is thousands of rounds trouble free and I'm very happy with it. This is despite it being under a 'mandatory recall' that I never acknowledged because I'm not releasing the bolt on a dropped in .300 BO round because the design of the firearm shows that to be a dumb idea.

    I'm not sure what the fix will be for the Cross, but I wonder if it's going to be a useless redesign to fix a few out of spec rifles as the MCX recall was.

    Modern manufacturing requires vetting, analysis and knowledge of the processes involved on the part of the consumer. That's not going away. There are people with custom rifles costing thousands of dollars that have trigger problems.

    Finally got a chance this evening to shoot my 6.5 Creedmoor Sig Cross along with a couple other 6.5s. The rifle shot well, I had no trigger issues over a whopping 14 rounds and it was accurate at 100 with factory Fed Fusion 140s. This is the first chassis style rifle Iíve owned or shot before and Iím not sure Iím a fan of the chassis but itís probably my lack of familiarity. It is a slick package though, with Seekins rings and a 3-10 NF SHV, I think itís a hair below 9lbs empty.

    Seems like an awesome value for the price point. I was surprised when I saw the msrp, from sig no less.

    I waited two years to buy a p365 due to Sig being Sig, Iím thinking two years may not be enough at the rate they are going.

    Iíve been eyeing one of these since they were announced. Sig isnít one of the companies I trust enough to be an early adopter so Iíll wait a couple of years for the second or third generation of the Cross before I buy one. Iím interested in hearing @GJMís thoughts as he continues to work with his.

    I am sitting here thinking, why would anyone buy a SIG when there are other options?

    Then I remember, I bought a Taurus revolver two weeks ago. Guess we all have our thing.
