    Rebarrel Steyr SSG 69


    Does anyone know if the barrel on the above screws into the action like most similar rifles. I am wondering about the ease with which I can get one rebarreled. I recall that the barrel on the Steyr Mountain Hunter is a type of push / friction fit and doesn't screw in like other rifles.

    Also, does anyone have one (SSG 69) and if so, how do you rate it?

    I'm on my 3rd. They are accurate. The triggers come just as I like them. The bolts are smooth and quick to use. You can rebarrell them although I have never had it done on mine. Some critisize the stock being a bit plasticy but you can get an aftermarket stock if that bothers you. I have never bothered.

    Excellent rifle with only two faults:

    1. The ***** plastic magazine which will split if you are careless inserting rounds.
    2. Steyr use a heat process to fit the barrels which means that it can't be re-barrelled like regular rifles. However Armalon have perfected the technique to removing the old barrel and 'retro-threading' in order to fit a conventional barrel. Its quite reasonable; starting at around 450-500 for barrel & labour.

    You'll have to go some to burn out an original barrel though. Hammer forged and chrome lined - my current rifle in 308 has done almost 5000rds, is never cleaned, will go through 100-200 rds at a time on the range and is still sub MOA.
