The Steyr AUG A3 M1- The ultimate bug-out bullpup
Both the World War II-era Steyr-produced MP40 submachine gun and the Steyr AUG modern combat riﬂe introduced comparably revolutionary reﬁnements into the art and science of gun making.
In 2009, Steyr introduced the SSG 08 bolt-action rifle as the answer to those requiring top accuracy from an out-of-the-box rifle. Clearly police and military agencies equipping specialized units benefit from rifles that are simply issued, sighted in, and deployed without needing any tweaks that might vary from one gun to the next. And while many of us civilians enjoy the process of tuning a rifle or finding just the right load, there are those who want a high performance rifle that works at its best, all the time, every time, right from the start--a rifle such as the SSG 08.
Mike Powell receives a Steyr Half Stock Mountain Classic to test – and has a hard time giving it back. I have personally owned two Steyr rifles: the original Pro Hunter and a Pro Hunter Mountain. These were both synthetic models, and very good too. When the opportunity cropped up thanks to the Sportsman Gun Centre to try one of the latest half-stocked models, I jumped at it.
