The CLASSIC can also be ordered in a "non big five” configuration in such standard calibers as .30-06, .308 Win., 7x57R, 7x65R, 8x57JRS, 8x75RS, 9.3x74R. The CLASSIC Standard shares many of the same features the CLASSIC "Big Five" offers. Among them is the action which is identical between the Standard and the "Big Five" rifle. This makes it possible to add a "big five" caliber barrel later to a standard caliber rifle, although in such case, the gun has to be re-proofed.
An important design feature of all CLASSIC Standards up to and including caliber .375 H&H or Flanged Mag. NE, is an adjustable and removable wedge at the muzzle with integrated front sight which allows for re-regulation of the barrels without re-soldering and re-bluing. This feature allows to fine tune the accuracy of the rifle at longer ranges and is a very helpful tool when ammunition is being changed or a scope is being installed which in both cases may require to re-regulate the barrels.
