The Scout rifle concept has been around for a long time, but up to now all items have been custom made assemblies of existing components. Steyr Mannlicher has now developed a serial production version of the Scout rifle which meets all scout criteria and is ready for action as soon as it comes out of the box.

The Scout rifle is compact and light in weight. Its overall length is 98 cm with the stock at the short option. Its weight is 3.2 kg unloaded, but with telescope sight in place.

The action of the Steyr Scout is the turnbolt design "Safe Bolt System." It is a 90 degree turning bolt of an entirely new design with four diametrically opposed locking lugs. Its three-positioned manual safety switch rides on the centerline of the tang. Both 5 and 10 round detachable box magazines (adapter necessary) may be used, featuring the double detent retention system which permit the weapon to be single-loaded with a full magazine in position and instantly available on demand.

Caliber: 223 Rem., 308 Win., 376 Steyr, 7 mm-08 Rem.
