The Steyr SSG 08 was originally designed and manufactured for professional use. This is a high precision and high performance bolt action rifle that was made to be used in harsh environments. The heavy, cold forged barrel is free floated for optimum performance. The aircraft aluminum stock has an adjustable rear monopod, in addition to a vertically and horizontally adjustable cheek piece and recoil pad. As with many other Steyr rifles, this model is equipped with the Safe Bolt System for the ultimate safety. Finish options include a classic black or a choice between light or dark camouflage patterns.
