Steyr Arms Offers Special Run of Camouflage Scouts
BESSEMER, Ala. (Jan. 6, 2015) — Steyr Arms announced that it is now offering a limited edition run of Camo Scout Rifles in three different camouflage patterns. Steyr Scouts are now available in “Early Fall,” Mid Fall,” and “Late Fall” camouflage patterns.
The Camo Scouts are being offered in response to overwhelming customer demand for camouflage patterns on the iconic Steyr Scout Rifle. Steyr Arms has partnered with an Alabama-based company that specializes in the hydro-dip coating process to create these custom-order rifles. These new rifles can be ordered today directly through Steyr’s U.S. headquarters in Bessemer.
The Steyr Scout Rifle was the result of a unique and nearly decade-long collaboration between scout-rifle-concept creator Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper and Steyr Mannlicher, GmbH. The lightweight, .308-caliber bolt-action, all-purpose Steyr Scout rifle can accept a low-powered, forward-mounted scope, and backup “ghost-ring” iron sights are integrated to the top rail. The Scout Rifle’s stock features an integrated bipod, and five sling-swivel attachment points that allow the use of a standard sling or Cooper’s favored Ching Sling on either side of the rifle. The Scout Rifle also features a pair of five-round magazines with a two-position locking system that allows them to be used as a magazine cutoff. The second magazine is uniquely stored in the rear of the stock. Measuring just 39.4 inches and weighing in at 6.6 pounds, the Steyr Scout also features a fluted 20-inch cold-hammer-forged barrel.
The Camo Scout is available with a suggested retail price of $1,799. To order a Camo Scout Rifle, call Steyr Arms at (205) 417-8644. Please allow three weeks for delivery.
