Austrian manufacturer Steyr Mannlicher (Hall 1, Stand A125) has now evolved its SSG M1 sniper rifle to improve its shooting performance.
This is quite apart from retaining precision and reliability – the ‘traditional virtues’ in the company’s parlance.
The range of new features of the SSG M1 include an ambidextrous safety with the ability to load in the ‘safe’ position, a two-stage length-adjustable trigger and fully adjustable buttstock quick-interchangeable barrels to fire different calibre ammunition. This enables the firing of .338 Lapua Mag.
(8,6x70mm) and 7,62x51 NATO with barrel lengths of 508mm, 600mm and 690mm. It has a magazine capacity of 10 rounds. Furthermore, the rifle sports a top picatinny rail 30 MOA, and a KeyMod fore end.
