In the 90s STEYR ARMS partnered with legendary US Marine, rifle expert and shooting instructor Jeff Cooper to develop the MANNLICHER SCOUT.
Jeff Cooper wanted the rifle to be shorter than one meter and lighter than 3 kg.
Its optic had to be mounted as far forward as possible and it had to have iron sights. This was to ensure secure target acquisition up to 400 meters.
In addition to this, the MANNLICHER SCOUT carried a spare magazine in its butt stock.
2023 marks the year STEYR ARMS presents the newly designed STEYR SCOUT II. Making perfect just a bit better.
To achieve even better accuracy housing and bedding block are milled from one piece of aluminium.
Instead of the Weaver-Rail the STEYR SCOUT II integrates a top Picatinny-Rail and a M-LOK mount at 6 o‘clock at the forend.
