Of course what dominates the Scout Rifle design is the forward-set scope rail. The Scout was originally designed for use with a fixed, low-power long eye-relief riflescope ahead of the ejector port.
This gives the shooter the benefit of some magnification without obstructing the field of view for the sake of situational awareness, a benefit to military scouts and game stalkers alike.
The Steyr Scout also has traditional scope rails for shooters who want to mount a scope up close as you would on any other rifle.
It is a fairly lightweight rifle at 6.6 pounds, another core characteristic of the Scout Rifle. That includes the bipod which is integrated into the forend. The stock has no fewer than five sling points for a wide option of sling styles and methods.
Purists will want to use a Ching Sling, which was Cooper’s preferred method of slinging a rifle.
Thanks to these new prices it’s never been easier to get a Steyr Scout. And with these colors it’s possible to get one to suit your specific shooting needs. But to get that extra $200 you’ll have to move fast before the promotion ends.
