The Steyr SSG 69 is a sniper rifle with a bolt-action manufactured and produced by Steyr Mannlicher of Austria. The Sniper Rifle serves as the official sniper rifle for the Austrian Army.

Background

The designation as the SSG 609 is do to the fact that the rifle was adopted in 1969. The rifle was a revolution and ahead of its time in the use of cold hammer forged barrels and synthetics for accuracy.

The Steyr 69 has several variants, however most have cosmetic differences. The essential only anomaly of the sniper rifle is in the SSG-PIV which utilizes the 409 mm barrel and has a 1-10 twist designed and manufactured to handle the somewhat heavier subsonic ammunition.

Adopted in 1969 (hence the designation), it was ahead of its time with the use of synthetics and cold-hammer forged barrels for accuracy.

Currently the Steyr USA has 5 round mags at about 70USD. The 10 round mags are difficult to obtain but have very mixed success. Most are unreliable. Stay with 5 round mags.
