Rifles - SSG:
Interested in information and experiences on the Steyr SSG products, good or bad. I am looking at a possible purchase, gun shop likes it a lot, but guns are such a personal preference. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You asked for feedback on experience with Steyr products. You did not however say what the end use of the weapon would be but I will give my input based on my use.
I use a Steyr SSG 69 PII .308 with dual triggers, Harris bipod, Leopold MKIV M1 10X. I shoot non-competition target and it is my primary large animal hunting weapon. I am able to achieve .5 MOA out to 400 YDS. but have not shoot targets further than this. I am completely confident that 1 MOA results can be achieved out to 600 yds. As far as hunting I chose this weapon because I felt that as a responsible and ethical hunter I should use the best and most accurate weapon that I could afford. I have taken a number of game animals with it and have always had one shot results. I have also shot the PI version and it performed similarly. I have not had a chance to try the Scout version but the reviews I have read lead me to think it is a good performer as well. Hope this helps.

Best compliment I can pay the gun is it takes a beating and continues to function. Bad weather has not effected it while I have used it. Bad side? Cost.
PS I have owned other Steyr rifles, and I find them to be quite durable
and accurate. All are priced above where more accurate rifles live though,
in my opinion.
