Steyr SSG 69 Sniper Rifle
A classic rifle that still commands a high demand.
TRUSSVILLE, AL —-(AmmoLand.com)- The SSG 69 line of rifles, including the STEYR SSG 69 PI and the STEYR SSG 69 PII, mirrors many years of STEYR MANNLICHER’s firearms manufacturing experience.
The SSG 69 (Scharfschützengewehr 69) is a bolt-action sniper rifle produced by Steyr Mannlicher and serves as the standard sniper rifle for the Austrian Army.
Adopted in 1969 (hence the designation), it was ahead of its time with the use of synthetics and cold-hammer forged barrels for accuracy. SSG-69 is the Austrian Army’s standard issue sniper rifle, the PI is the civilian version of the same weapon. The SSG-69 is also used by several police agencies. The SSG is extremely accurate and several international competitions have been won using an SSG-69 with accuracy being sub .5 MOA.
There are several variants made with mostly cosmetic differences, the only anomaly being the SSG-PIV using a 409 mm barrel with a 1:250 mm (1:10 inches) twist designed to handle heavy subsonic ammunition.
Their precision and robustness set a trend internationally, for a new generation of modern precision rifles. Despite the fact that their development originated some time ago, the SSG 69 series of precision rifles remain internationally high in demand.
The proven bolt action system of STEYR MANNLICHER hunting rifles is also found in the SSG 69 series of rifles.
