Featured Rifle: The Steyr Scout


Main Content Inline Small

Did you know that the person most responsible for designing one of the most popular Steyr rifles in recent times was not Austrian?  In fact, most of the key components of the Steyr Scout were engineered with feedback from legendary Colonel Jeff Cooper.  Most people are unsure exactly what comprises a Scout rifle.  For the most part, the Scout rifle was meant to be the ultimate general purpose rifle.  It needed to be able to take most game animals (up to 400 kg), at ranges up to 300 meters (330 yards), it needed to be less than 1 meter in length (39"), and weigh less than 3 kilograms (6.6 pounds).  Hence, the Steyr Scout .308 was born in 1998.  Some of the other features that distinguish the Steyr Scout is a two stage magazine, spare magazine compartment in the stock, integrated bi-pod, emergency flip up sights, and the extreme accuracy of its cold hammer forged barrel.  Originally Steyr launched a Jeff Cooper package Scout that came complete with a Leupold 2.5 forward mounted optic.  Col. Cooper felt this package was the absolute best for quick acquisition of targets.  Steyr Arms is still selling the same packages today, however, we can no longer provide signed letters of authenticity and the stock color has changed from gray to black.  If you would like more info on the Scout click here or see your authorized Steyr Retailer.
