I think SIG (Swiss Co.) made a deal with Sauer (German Co.) because Switzerland has something against exporting weapons or some such while Germany does not.

It may be that SIG eventually bought out Sauer, too?? But I think the stiffness of Swiss law or regulation was the original reason.

Sauer made a real nice bolt rifle, too.
