Developed with input from the world-class Austrian COBRA unit, Steyr’s new SSG08 sniper rifle is packed full with features that make this rifle worthy of being called the most advanced design on the market, while also providing users with a newfound rugged innovation in rifle technology.

Aerospace aluminum is used in the stock to save weight while also improving ruggedness. Not only does the rifle look rugged, but it proves worthy of rugged use in extreme environmental conditions: The Safe Bolt System (SBS) from Steyr Mannlicher is not only one of the safest bolt systems ever designed, but it also has ice, mud and residue grooves machined into the bolt that guarantee reliable operation.

    I got it, is perfect, secure and with a bery good accuracy, 5 shots in one centimeter in 100 meters

    El rifle dispara increiblemente bien, preciso y seguro. Con una buena optica se pueden hacer cosas increibles.

    Hola gente, este rifle de Steyr es una maravilla, exclente precisicion, fabuloso diseño y toda la fialbilidad de la marca austriaca. El unico problema aqui en Argentina es su precio: u$s 10.000 americanos. Saludos.

    Hiya lads,

    this rifle is available for civilians (at least it is in Austria, so I reckon it’ll also be in other countries).
    It is also available in .300 Winchester Magnum, the price (in Austria) is ~ 5.000 euros.
    I’ve decided to go for a S&B scope, all together it cost € 8.500,-; despite the price, this is the most awesome and accurate rifle i ever had!!
    Cheers

    I’ve been after a long range TacRifle. I currently Own a Pro Hunter in a .300 WSM, Great Rifle. I originally wanted the SSG 04. the dealer took over a year to get it, so I ended up buying the Pro Hunter and equipping it with a M4 3.5-10X40. After a long while i still wish to purchase a Steyr SSG series, My big question is .. Will this rifle be available to civilians?? I live in Australia, and would like to import one as soon as they hit the markets. I’m impressed with Steyr’s performance. And wouldn’t hesitate to over look the GIANT price tag!

    PS: Considering the 300WSM Outperforms the trusted .308. I would hope it will be produced in.300WSM
