This rifle is skillfully modeled after a Fendt tractor

Published:

No rifle has ever looked quite like this before — and we couldn’t be more enamored with the cool-looking creation that the Fendt tractor company and J.P. Sauer & Sohn came up with.

This is where customization and art (and a love of agriculture) all come together.

The S404 Fendt 1050 Vario has all the stylings of Fendt’s flagship large tractor and will be sold at the Auctronia auction house. It’s already being featured on several firearm enthusiast sites.

Here is Sauer’s description of this project gun, or as it is being called, a Themenwaffe (theme weapon):

“How can one best support the commitment of hunters and farmers to a healthy environment and biodiversity? This question has been answered by Fendt and J.P. Sauer & Sohn in a unique way never attempted before by any gunmaker — ever. In close cooperation with Germany’s oldest gunmaker, the longtime agricultural machine manufacturer from Marktoberndorf in the Allgäu has created a so-called theme rifle based on Germany’s Number 1 large tractor transposed to the most sophisticated hunting rifle in the world.”

As you will see in the following set of images, most every part of this rifle is made to resemble the Fendt 1050 Vario tractor — from the overall color scheme to the shape and texture of different parts:
