Steyr Scout

| Saturday, August 13, 2011 | 0 comments

The Steyr Scout is a modern scoped bolt-action rifle manufactured by Steyr company in Austria. These Scout are typically .308 caliber (7.62mm), less than 1 meter in length, and less than 3 kilograms (6.6 lbs.) in weight, with iron and optical sights and fitted with practical slings (such as Ching slings) for shooting and carrying, and capable of hitting man-sized targets out to 450 meters without scopes. Typically they employ forward-mounted low-power long eye relief scopes or sights to afford easy access to the top of the rifle action for rapid reloading.

The Steyr Scout differs from the basic variant mostly in the bolt area: it has matte black bolt finish with oversized bolt handle, instead of basic polished steel bolt finish and hunting style bolt handle. Also, usually, the 10-rounds magazine adapter (available as acessory for hunting Scouts) is pre-installed on Steyr Scouts.

The Scout is available in the Jeff Cooper Package, including Scout Scope, two five-round magazines, Ching Sling, and custom case, retailing for $2,595. The scope by itself is notable, being already available from Leupold -- a 2.5x28mm forward mount with hex-head Weaver rings. The production rifles feature a Picatinny style rail permitting either forward eye relief or conventional mounting for higher-powered optics.
