    According to Internet military source, 120 of Steyr’s SSG bolt-action sniper rifle have been acquired and are going to be introduced to special purpose and infantry units. The weapon is chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum and fitted with a riflescope Kahles K624i.

    It is a highly accurate bolt-action sniper rifle, with a folding stock and an adjustable cheek piece and butt plate. It is equipped with a bipod and a "butt spike" monopod for added stability. The pistol grip is customizable by changing the front and back straps. This sniper rifle has a Picatinny rail to the upper part for mounting optics, there is also an additional Picatinny rail in the lower part of the weapon. The rifle also features an improved muzzle brake over the SSG 04, with the ability to attach a suppressor.

    The SSG M1 utilises the Safe Bolt System (SBS) action, cold hammer-forged barrels, trigger units and 10 rounds magazines. It features an aluminium alloy stock, with side-folding, fully adjustable butt and additional Picatinny rails on the forend.

    The SSG M1 is based on Steyr's SBS rotary bolt action with four frontal locking lugs, arranged in pairs. It also features free-floated, cold hammer-forged heavy barrels, which are available in 508mm (.308 Winchester), 600mm (.243 Winchester, .308 Winchester, .300 Winchester Magnum) and 690mm (.338 Lapua Magnum) lengths.

    Feed is from detachable double-column box magazines, which hold ten .243 Winchester or .308 Winchester, eight .300 Winchester Magnum or six .338 Lapua Magnum rounds. The single-stage trigger is factory set for optimum performance, but can be adjusted by the user.

    The Kahles K624i is precision riflescope used to shoot on long distances. The elevation adjustment has a second rotation indicator and the most refined zero stop and dial reset available. With 26 Mils of overall elevation adjustment in just two rotations and precise indexing, adjusting for extreme distances and back to zero is incredibly fast and accurate.

    The Kahles K624i is fitted with an unique and innovative parallax adjustment, located under the elevation turret, superior to all other designs, for left or right handed shooters. This means less time required to engage multiple targets as you won’t have to break your shooting position.

    New modular Steyr Mannlicher SSG M1 2018



    [​IMG]
    There is a new upgraded Steyr Mannlicher SSG around the corner called the SSG M1 2018.

    The upgrades make the bolt-action rifle quite similar to the SAKO TRG M10, which has had quite a lot of success recently. For instance in Poland, just check here and here for reference.

    So it’s another rifle to put on your wish list for long range shooting, and it’s being shown at IWA 2018 in Germany which open tomorrow.

    The system is now modular so you can switch between a .308 Win (7,62×51 mm) and .338 LapuaMagnum.

    The current SSG 08 can be found in these calibers today – .243 Win., .308 Win. (7,62×51 NATO), .300 Win. Mag., .338 Lap. Mag. – so it would not surprise me if we will see more options and replacement barrels in the future, however, that is unconfirmed at this point.

    SOME OF THE FEATURES OF THE SSG M1 WILL INCLUDE:
    Top Picatinny has 30 MOA slope.

    KeyMod handguard.

    Free Floating Barrel.

    A.F.S Aluminium folding Stock, with adjustments.

    You can load the rifle while the safety is on

    Exchangeable pistol grips.

    Adjustable trigger

    The barrel can be changed quickly, between 508 mm / 20″ .308 Win and 690 mm 27,2″.

    You can also notice that there is a dust cover on the receiver.

    The top rifle has Kahles sight (624i I think) with an Aimpoint Micro H2 side mounted, and an Atlas bipod.

    Below you can compare it to the current SSG 08 so you can notice – for instance – the handguard, Picatinny rail, magwell, and buttstock. The safety seems replaced as well.

    The current STEYR SSG 08 can be found here.

    The new SSG M1 will be on display in Nürnberg, Germany.
