Default Colt Sauer Bolt Action

A friend of mine just showed me a picture of his Colt Sauer bolt action rifle in .30-06. It has some of the nicest wood I've ever seen on a rifle. I noticed it had a Rosewood tip like you see on a Wheatherby.

I didn't know that other gun manufacturers do this. Is this just a beautification technique or is there a purpose to this?

About how much would you say a rifle like his is worth? Just curious.

They are worth about $1k in 95-98% condition.

Some manufacuters use rosewood ends on some of their higher end models but you see them more frequently on custom guns.

They were a very nice rifle I always wanted one badly in my youth when I worked in a sportings goods store. Back then they in the late 70's early eighties they sold new for about $500. I believe they stopped making them in the early to mid eighties as the Colt Sauer anyway.

I believe the sauer company is still around which was JP Sauer and Sons out of Germany I think.

Man that was one silky smooth action.
